Overall, The Dark Knight is a superior
There's a blend of serious themes and crowd-pleasing
action, with lots of ideas and a flat-out exhilarating roller-coaster
plunge into this story of darkness -- for another saga of Gotham
City's Caped Crusader.
It's a real tragedy Heath Ledger won't
be around to enjoy the spotlight for his amazing performance
of the Joker.
I really liked this film.
Everything you've heard is true! Heath
Ledger is the best Joker ever.
As Batman broods about the high crime rate
in Gotham City, Harvey Dent (the new district attorney) is doing
something about it.
Enter the Joker, a criminal with no apparent
agenda and no concern about the body count when crime is concerned.
The Dark Knight is
an excellent parable about the fight between good and evil, and
the innocents who become expendable.
The Dark Knight
returns to Gotham City for a second, even moodier and more savage,
installment of the franchise.
The picture delivers action, matching Batman
against the Joker -- who goes wild in psychotic cosmetics and
robs banks and blows up hospitals for the sheer kick of it.
The motion picture leaves out the predatory
glamour that makes the comic book films that have come before
it look more like kid's stuff.
This flick is more about mind games and
might be the darkest super hero movie ever made.
