The Dark Knight is one of the best Batman movies I have ever seen. In fact, it is one of the best movies I have seen in my life. It has all the elements of a blockbuster movie, Great actors, Great sets, Amazing costumes, and explosions galore. Christian Bale did an amazing job as Batman. He didn't disappoint me at all with his performance in DK. He continued his amazing performance in Batman Begins in this movie. Heathe Ledger, as joker, also portrayed his character well. The acting was definitely one of the strong points of this movie.What I think is missing is the humor that is embedded in Joker's character. Granted that this retelling of Batman was a return to the original Darker superhero, it would still have been better if the Joker was a "jokester." In DK, the Joker was merely a psychopath with no clear motivation. He did what he did just because. I wish that his crimes were more of pranks: really dark pranks. I also wish that the villains in DK were explained better.

I just got back from the dark knight. I was so pumped to see it that i woke up at 7:45 to go to a 9:00 showing, the theater was still packed! When i came out of the theater there were no parking spaces left and there was a stretched out line. Heath, my god, that was a great preformance, enough said. Batman Begins was my favorite movie, now this has taken over, if you don't see this box office record setting phenominah, you have no taste in movies.

The movie was an amazing sequel to Batman Begins. It'll have you at the edge of your seat like if you were on a roller coaster. With all it's intriguing plots, twists, and turns. You're bound to love this movie. The role of Batman has been best filled by Christian Bale once again, this time better than ever. Even so, it doesn't stop their. The sociopath Joker is played with oscar screaming all over it. NO ONE! I repeat NO ONE! HAS EVER BROUGHT THE JOKER ALIVE NEAR AS GOOD AS HEATH LEDGER. "Why so serious?" will always be a phrase to remember. The movie will have you mesmerized to the point you won't realize how long you've been there, honestly I think that would be the last thing on your mind. Many could complain that it was too short. As for the outcome of what takes place towards the end, lets just say say there's a lot more than meets the eye. The preview aren't even a fragment of everything you'll see. I give it a 5 out of 5. Without a doubt, best movie of the year 2008.

Once again, we're going back to Gotham, and its better than ever. Christopher Nolan's visual and mental take on the caped crusader becomes even more enjoyable with the addition of new characters and an intrigueing story line. As everyone is well aware, Heath Ledger gives his final, stunning performance as Batman's greatest enemy, the Joker. His acting in the film has astounded critics so much that he may be the 7th actor in history to recieve a posthumous acadamy award nomination, and judging how great his perfomance is, he may even be the second actor in history to win one. Then their is also the new addition of Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) Who becomes the new district attorney of Gotham and helps Commissioner Gordon and Batman track down crooks. He also becomes the new love intrest of B-Man's girl Rachel, but most suprisingly of all, (Spoiler Alert) He becomes the deformed and derranged killer known as Two-Face, a villian that b-man will probably face in the inevitable 3rd installment

Wow. I can't wait for this movie!!! Found out a band in NYC named Kongcrete produced an awesome video for their Joker theme song in tribute to Heath. [BLOCKED WEBSITE] The music video and music rock! Their other songs on myspace.com/kongcrete and iTunes are like Rage, Korn, Linkin Park, and Publc Enemy on steroids. Anybody know more about this band? Is the song supposed to be in the movie? They have a poll on myspace, and I voted for Punisher as the next movie they need to write a song for! Counting down the days!
