I am not a fan of superhero movies. In fact, I really don't like them much at all. I was "forced" to watch some Batman movies when the kids were younger and hated them; which probably has a lot to do with my dislike. So when I saw that The Dark Knight was #4 I can't say I was really excited to watch it.
I have to admit that I thought it was okay. The story was actually complex, dramatic and interesting. I didn't like Batman's voice though. Would I watch it again? Probably not. But if I HAD to watch it I probably could do it. Sorry, that's as excited as I can get about it.
