I walked into the theater expecting nothing. And I was fucking blown away. The Ra's Al Ghul twist completely caught me off guard, and just the overall portrayal of Nolan's Gotham was amazing.
It's worth mentioning that I was also pleased with the use of Gordon. I always thought of him as a joke and never so much as a minor character.
I can't say enough good things about this film. It's an outstanding origin story, yet it's more than that. It isn't just the introduction to "The Dark Knight." It's the introduction to Batman.
Dark Knight is far superior to Begins.
