Easily the best 2 hours 37 minutes I've spent in the movie theater in a long long time. Usually super hero movies aren't that good. Usuaully they're all about special effects and are scarce on plot and character development. Call me old-fashioned, but I do like the plot to make sense, and I kind of want to form some connection to the people I'm watching. Well, this movie had it all: ACTION, check. PLOT, check. CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, check. MORAL DILEMMAS, check. Interesting dialogue, CHECK. It wasn't a superhero-in-a-can movie. It actually kept you guessing and kept you thinking. Two of my favorite things in a movie. And Christian Bale's not bad to look at either. Bonus!
