ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film The Dark Knight

Goyer's bad script. CHECK. Nolan's incapability to pace his film and to not threat his audience like children. CHECK. Generic Hans Zimmer Soundtrack. CHECK. The Bat voice. TRIPLE CHECK. Completely ruining the noir like elements of the series in exchange for a poor man's Heat. ULTRAAA COMBO. And yet, I don't hate this enormously overrated film. And we all know why: Heath Leager. He is the only reason this film exists.
