The Dark Knight didn't impress me

Earlier tonight I watched The Dark Knight and I wasn't impressed. It's not a bad movie; it's a good movie. It's just not so great that it deserves to be anywhere near #1 on IMDb or draw the biggest crowds I've ever seen at the cinema. I'm guessing this has to do with people's attachment to the Batman character or the superhero genre. It's probably the best such movie I've ever seen. It has far more depth than most such movies while still retaining the usual good vs. evil combat and effects. I still recommend seeing it if you watch a lot of movies as it is one of the better movies this year.
