    Alright. What started as a trailer for Se7en, ended up stripping away all the Batman from the man, who is Bruce Wayne. Ok, I get it, Matt Reeves and company are after that gritty, grounded, raining all the time look; this pilgrim, for one, has not seen a better rendition of Gotham, and they succeed.

    'I ain't got no quarrel with the Viet Cong... No Viet Cong ever called me nigger' - Muhammad Ali, 1966

    From Sgt. Elias (Dafoe), the hippy 'Nam veteran carrying his XM177E2 like a cross, to Lerner's (Depp) lump in the throat - that flashes by - after witnessing a war-crime, to the hardened and menacing Sgt. Barnes (Berenger) giving a career high performance with a face with more battle scars than natural features.
