Overview and Review of Batman: The Dark Knight directed by Christopher Nolan.
Batman and James Gordon continues to exterminate crime in Gotham City, and this time they joined forces with a District Attorney named Harvey Dent. A new freak of a mastermind has taken over "organized crime" in Gotham City named Joker. No identity, no family, no nothing.
This is by far one of the best movie I've seen in 2008. It's Batman - he is a Hero.. so it must be loaded with action scenes right ? Well, get a load of this movie - it is not just action scenes you would enjoy but great memorable dialogues too. But, actually almost everything about this movie I enjoyed - the acting, the action scenes, the Lamborghini, the musical score, and did I say the dialogue ?
Christian Bale did a great job acting as the super-rich-i-can-do-anything-i-want bachelor Bruce Wayne and with his deep voice in his caped suit with all those flashy rides. Of course, Heath Ledger - actually made an ASTOUNDING PERFORMANCE as the Joker. Joker was a very provocative antagonist. He would really try hard to corrupt you. The other casts did their best and was exceptional. Just right for their part.
This movie is pretty much applicable to real life - it's not all fantasy. The comparison between the Corruptible(White Knight/TwoFace) and the Incorruptible(Dark Knight/Batman). Batman is now #1 in my Super Hero list. *laughs*
I also like the scene with the 2 Ships. `twas brilliant and moving. It also got me to thinking: "What If I am There?.. What would be the best thing to do?". And guess what? I did not pass. Mwahaha. Shucks. I need to think about that more often.
Batman: The Dark Knight sure amazed a lot of people, because it exceeded most of their expectations - the writing, the acting, the music and of course the directing. There was never a dull moment to the movie - you'd be glued to the screen most of the time. Everything is excellent!
Joker says: You would really know who that person is... when
Line I like :
Lt. Gordon: Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.
