Without doubt the best film to be adapted from a comic book to date, it does for comic book characters what The Godfather did for Italian American crime lords, as a Batman fan in the late 80's to the early 90's and a fan of Tim Burton's movies, I had my childhood destroyed by Joel Schumacher's nuclear annihilation of the character and the Batman franchise as the 90's continued. As soon as I started to watch this film, in a darkened theatre on a warm Saturday night in June of 2005, I wanted to run out, find Chris Nolan and shake his hand and buy him a drink, I couldn't believe that someone had done this, had taken Batman and turned a film about him into one of the greatest films ever made. Not one of the best comic book movies, but actually one of the very best films in general to have been made. Words cannot describe how much I adore this film.
