Batman: The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight reunites Christian Bale who is Bruce Wayne/Batman with Christopher Nolan in their follow up from Batman Begins. One year after Batman Begins we see some familiar faces such as L.T Jim Gordon played by Gary Oldman and a new face in the new district attorney Harvey Dent played by Aaron Eckhart they team up with Batman to eliminate organized crime in Gotham in this action drama summer film.As these three begin their crusade against organized crime they prove to be effective that is until they find themselves  at the mercy of the unrelenting psychopath known as The Joker played by Heath Ledger. The Joker is a criminal of Gotham who cannot be bought, doesn’t want money, doesn’t want power, but simply wants to spread a message of panic and fear. He has become an agent of chaos causing anarchy through Gotham believing that everyone good can be corrupted while pushing  Batman on the edge to crossing the line between being a hero or vigilante.The Dark Knight goes far beyond to just being a comic book movie this is great film writing at its best with oscar award winning performances from every actor in this. Everyone’s dialogue was almost perfect one character who I believed to have some of the best dialogue I believe was overlooked because of Heath Ledger’s Joker performance was Michael Caine who played Alfred. The short parts that Alfred had each bit of dialogue he had with Bruce Wayne or Rachel Dawes played by Maggie Gyllanhaal was simply phenomenal. The action could literally be taken away from this film and it would still be a must own movie. This Batman movie is like no other Batman movie it took out the fantasy that was in every other Batman movie and made it look and feel as if it were real. This is a movie that will keep the audience suspenseful and somewhat shocked throughout the entire film. It is a must own film and I personally recommend this to anyone searching for good films.

  1. I would give it 4/5 stars. I just don’t like Christian Bale in movies unless he is playing a crazy man or an asshole (such as American Psycho and The Machinist). He has the ability to be a good Bruce Wayne, but he hasn’t shown much potential. Heath Ledger has one of the greatest performances ever in this film.

  2. I guess I kind of agree the movie was so good that I didn’t even mind I thought he did a decent job he reminds me of Keanu Reeves in the Matrix movies ….Heath Ledger and a character who I believed was overlooked was Alfred’s character Michael Caine who in every bit of dialogue he had was just phenomenal.

  3. absolutely. I think that the Neo-Syndrome is happening a lot. The first movie they’re in is amazing (Batman Begins, which is my favorite superhero movie, since I thought it was better than the Dark Knight simply because Christian Bale ACTUALLY did good) and the next ones have a dullness to the character. Other examples of the Neo-Syndrome are Iron-Man and X-Men.

  4. Well remember they did have Christian Bale be the star in Equilibrium which was basically just a rip off of the Matrix maybe the directors do see him as this type of actor and only see him playing this kind of character
