I checked out the Dark Knight on Imax last evening.
First off I would have seen it opening night but it was sold out in Charlotte for the first week it was open.
My friend Ty had picked us up tickets earlier in the week. The line was really long to get in and for the box office tickets for the next show. When I walked pass the box office line the sign showing tickets available said -1 tickets left. I bet the person that didn't get the seat but was sold a ticket was pissed. It was so hot I decided to go get a coke from concessions. I would have grabbed a popcorn, but who can pass up the astronaut ice cream from a science center?
I'm one of those people that just can't deal with the imax false sense of motion.
There were several times that I thought I was going to punk my astronaut ice-cream all over the lady in front of me.
The close up shaky cam style at times didn't help. All in all, it is amazing how close the imax experience makes you feel to the atmosphere of the movie.
Dark Knight is really a main corse villain movie with a side of hero.
This movie has an all star cast with maybe the exception of Maggie Gyllenhall.
Health Ledger steals the show, and Gary Oldman is solid as ever. Arron Eckhart was a nice surprise. I've enjoyed his acting since the movie "Thursday".
I wouldn't be surprised if Health Ledger receives an Oscar for best supporting actor for his role of the Joker
There are only a few plot holes that I saw and the only other annoying thing was Christian Bales over the top gruffy batman voice.
I'll have to see it again, because I feel like you miss some of the screen action on Imax. I'd give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
