(USA) If this is what a post-apocalyptic world is going to be like, then we’ll all die of boredom way before dehydration or roaming gangs of feral cannibals get to us. We can’t ever remember a Denzel movie this uninteresting—a threadbare plot, lightweight characters, miscast actors and a rubbish screenplay all feature prominently here.
(USA) Cross The Exorcist with The Omen, toss in an attractive female lead and you get The Unborn. Penned and directed by David S. Goyer, who was a scribe behind The Dark Knight, expectations are undoubtedly high behind this supernatural horror-thriller.
Category IIB. There are no spoilers in this review. And indeed, there is nothing about “The Dark Knight” that is spoiled. To call it simply a “comic book movie” does it a great disservice; this is an amazing film that doesn’t – and doesn’t need to – rely on its genre’s trappings for its resounding success.
Batman's back - and how. It took one disastrous, campy mess of a film to destroy Warner Brothers' biggest franchise, but "Batman Begins" is so good it makes you forget the four uneven films before it - even Jack Nicholson's classic Joker. This Batman puts the capital "D" in "dark" and creates delicious new possibilities in the process.
