THE DARK KNIGHT

When the Batman franchise was reopened I unlike a lot of other people around was excited for the possibilities of the film. If someone could come in and make a real good Batman film that would be great plus to be honest [here it is] I never hated any of the Batman films. The old school one is just that and that makes it fun, the first two Burton ones were really good in my opinion, and the final three were very cartoon/comic style fun. There I said it I found a reason to like each one even though they got less great as they went along. Then came "Batman Begins" which is arguably the best in the series and of all comic book films, I can see the case made for it.

So after that one I knew the next would be just as good if not better with the inclusion of the Joker. The hype surrounding this film was extraordinary but I think it was well deserved as I loved this film. Now sure there was a lot of additional hype since one of the stars passed away right before the films release but even without that I think this film would still have done the numbers it did. I mean sure that added some I am sure but there is all the batman fans, DC comics fans, comic fans in general, fans of the film before this one, action fans and well fans of just good movies. There was a lot this film had going for it and thankfully it delivered on all fronts.

With excellent writing and picture perfect direction from Christopher Nolan this film could not help but be great. The best thing about it still is the performances and of course you know who I mean. Heath Ledger did an outstanding job on this film with his portrayal of the Joker. Now the Joker is very arguably the greatest villain in all of comics, in fact I really thing he is. But he could also be the greatest villain in all creative history, especially this version of him. Now the comparisons started immediately with Ledger's Joker and Nicholson's Joker but to be honest you can not compare the two. They are two different versions of the same character in two different films, each one very much compliments and steals the show in their respective film.

Aside from Ledger [I could go on about his performance but every one else has] there is our lead Christian Bale who like in the first does a great job here. Aaron Eckhart is absolutely wonderful as Harvey Dent better known as Two Face, great performance there. Michael Caine once again is the perfect Alfred for these new films as is Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon. Maggie Gyllenhaal is the new Rachel and a better one I think, and of course the always brilliant Morgan Freeman is just that, brilliant. On a side note I loved that Cillian Murphy reprised his role of the Scarecrow in this film, brief but great.

I am sure you all know the story by now, a crazed madman [I guess they mean the same thing] comes lurking into town and offers the mob his services in killing Batman. His name is the Joker and he knows what he is doing, he is very good at doing that in which is what he does. Basically he knows how to cause chaos better than any one ever, and he is very very good at it. Enter Batman who is there to take up the challenge but Joker has a side game going, one that involves a man named Harvey Dent. When all is said and done the Joker will be changing the outlook of this city.

The reviews are many on this film so for more in depth details about any of this read those, I am very late to the party reviewing this mainly because I never felt the need to repeat every one else. But alas here I am stuck in my ways and have to get something out there. So here it is world I very much recommend this film and if you have yet to see it, BUY IT NOW.

Hardly a comic book or super hero fan here but I really liked this movie. It really takes off after the second half is in full gear. I like Christopher Nolan's take on the Batman story much better than Tim Burton's film. ;-) Nice work here on your review.

Outstanding critique! I have this exact edition in my collection and couldn't agree more with all of your points. I'm due to revisit this one!

Thank you very much

agreed on all points. Sadly I fear that the next sequel won't be of the same caliber, it almost always works out that way. Too bad Ledger passed--he would've made an appearance in the next movie.

Man I am hoping it is as good as the first 2, and yeah he would have been great in another one.

I completely agree- I think that the hype was well deserved! Do I dare say that I think Heath made a better Joker than Jack? I think so. Oh, and by the way, I changed it to the Dark Knight!

I don't think this was intended to be a scary movie. But whatever bejesus, I don't have any more of it because this movie scared all of it out of me -- forever.
