I took a short break on Friday to catch a matinee of “I Am Legend” (see my review next week sometime) and to also see the rumored full teaser trailer for the new Batman movie “The Dark Knight” due in theaters this summer.
My reaction to the trailer? I can’t tell one way or the other about this movie. Heath Ledger‘s Joker looks like a 60 year old prostitute, but he might be brilliant or he might be ludicrous… you get no real information or feel for the film from this trailer. No clues to the story, and you barely see Christian Bale or Batman at all. In other words, the jury is still out.
In the meantime, here’s a little cartoon I did a few years back when “Batman Begins” was about to come out. I’m still of the same opinion, although I liked “Batman Begins” better than the other live action Bat-flicks.
Now that I’ve seen “Batman Begins” I’d give that movie a solid B, bordering on a B+. Origin movies are a little easier to do as you need not worry about the superhero as a character until halfway through the film. It’s the second movie where you have to get started with the real story that is the trickier film to pull off. We shall see….
