More and more early reviews are hitting the internet. Here is a quick rundown: Peter Travers of Rolling Stone hit the web with the first review:
Feverish action? Check. Dazzling spectacle? Check. Devilish fun? Check...There's something raw and elemental at work in this artfully imagined universe.
From Erik Amaya of Comic Book Resources:
Make no mistake; "The Dark Knight" is frightening. Tension ramps up. Blood is spilled. Every body that drops has weight. Every shout is as unsettling as an explosion. As soon as the Joker begins his stage show of terror, you will expect every window and every quiet moment to explode into anarchy.
In a blog entry, Kevin Smith calls the movie is "...the "Godfather II" of comic book films." We'll post additional reviews as we head toward the opening weekend. From what we've seen so far, The Dark Knight is one movie to not be missed.
