The Dark Knight (2008)


First off this movie made more money than any other in box office sales in the first weekend of it being released. That should tell you something right there. Christian Bale returning to this incompleted trilogy as Batman was fantastic, even better than his first appearance as Batman. The movie also had Heath Ledger's final, and most believable role as the Joker. He actually passed away during production and there is a part in the film where he is replaced with a double from what I hear, but to be honest I cannot tell the difference. Besides these two amazing actors Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and, the legendary, Morgan Freeman all come together in this film to make it one of the greatest films in recent history. If you haven't seen the first Batman movie directed by Christopher Nolan you should, but it won't be necessary to completely understand the movie, at least if you've heard of Batman. I'm giving this movie a 5/5.

Is it too early to give a movie a perfect review? No, I just set the bar for all other movies.

  4. I saw some of the movie, but still think it was awesome. Heath ledger's performance was one my favourite Joker in a Batman movie ever. Great review. Followed

  5. It was good, but not nearly as good as Batman Begins. Way overhyped!

  7. Was great, but Bale really bogged it down. He is normally an A+ actor, but he really gave a poor performance in this. His annoying lisp to his grunts. Really, had this been a movie about Joke and Two-Face, I would have considered it one of the better movies ever. I just feel Batman was really worthless in this.

  15. Really? Best movie in recent history? It was good, yes, but with that ridiculous "batman voice" and horrible conclusion of Heath Ledger's character, it hardly deserves 5/5. Also, if you're going to have your own blog and write reviews that are worth a minute and a half of people's precious time, maybe you should read up on the proper usage of commas. Instead, I'm too distracted at the unnecessary choppiness of your ill-constructed sentences to even comprehend your undeserving raving of a movie that is simply a bandwagon action flick. I want my minute and a half back.
