Re: Where does most of TDK's critisism come from?
I hate the 'its not a batman movie' crap. Yes, the first time you see the film, Joker steals the show, but after you've seen the film once, you should be able to watch the film and realize, Oh wow, this whole film revolves around Batman and Bruce/Batman has way more screen time than the Joker...also he's in his Batman persona for the last 40 minutes of the movie. The film is about Bruce learning what it means to be a hero, learning about the innocent bloodshed and learning that he has to continue to fight because thats what heroes do...I guess I just don't get it. I love Batman and have loved him way before I ever knew who Chris Nolan was, but The Dark Knight is a Batman story and a goddamn good one at that.
