By WARD, Nick Nick Ward takes a peek into the darkness at the movies this week. -------------------- The Dark Knight Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger. Directed by Christopher Nolan. M. State Cinema. * * * * 1/2 Three years ago, Batman Begins revived a character who had been condemned to cartoonish excess in a series of awful films in the '80s and '90s. Its success meant a sequel was a given - and The Dark Knight more than lives up to expectations. Bruce Wayne is still a...

By John Beifuss Scripps Howard News Service Nobody thought to call Adam West's Batman a "Dark Knight." The screen Batman of the 1960s was pop, not noir; the Joker he battled was not an "agent of chaos" but an icon of camp. "People ask me about the new Batman movie, which I haven't seen, but I've seen bits and pieces of it, and the trailer and some of the ads, and my only impression at the moment is that if you like anarchy and nihilism and Gotham City in desperation, you might enjoy...

I'm one of those guys who has been watching the Internet for any little bit of news surrounding this movie. I had the release date checked on my calendar and I was counting down the days like a kid counts down for Christmas. I've read the reviews. Just about everyone has raved about this movie.

By JASON SILVERSTEIN "The Dark Knight" is the first Batman film not to feature our hero's name in the title, which can be viewed as a symbolic gesture. "Batman Begins" revived the series from its camp overdose by injecting a dark edge into it, and also paved the way for a more mature series to take flight. "Begins" set the stage for its sequel to take its solemn, thoughtful new path to a whole new level. And maybe that's why they decided on the "Dark Knight" title: This film isn't merely a...

By Geoffrey Macnab First Night THE DARK KNIGHT ODEON, LEICESTER SQUARE LONDON **** THE DARK Knight is a film for troubled times. The anarchy that The Joker (Heath Ledger) unleashes on Gotham City seems like a magnified version of what Western society is experiencing as economies contract and the threat of terrorism remains ever- present. This is a summer tent-pole movie that plays to the masochistic instincts of cinemagoers fretting over their own futures. All the signs are that...
