Critic Review - Los Angeles Times

To see it is to understand that Nolan and his co-writer brother Jonathan saw a chance to go deeper into familiar characters and mythology, a chance to meditate on darker-than-usual themes that have implications for the way we live now.

It says TDK has 2 rotten reviews in the "top critics" section and I only see 1, so where is the other one?
anyway Kenneth Turan rules! he takes the movie as it is not comparing it to any other comic-book movie and not judging the movie's darkness or saying that is a bad thing.

Thank you Kenneth Turan for rescuing NPR's TDK reviews from the ****up clutches of David Edelstein and Armond White. Who the **** ever thought it was not ok for a superhero movie to be dark?

What is the difference between Top critic and T-meter? I know that RT community is what we write, but don't what T-meter is.

Top critics are critics that are considered more notable than the other critics. The T-Meter shows all of the critics reviews on RT
