The Dark Knight Review

Yes, The Dark Knight is an incredible film, and it definitely has appeal for the masses -but I don’t think it lived up to all the hype it has received.   For the most part, the plot was well thought out and the story seemed to flow quite nicely but at times it tends to drag on a bit.   There are awesome visual effects in this movie, notably Two-Face’s, scared face.  Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine were all pleasures to watch, and Heath Ledger really did give the performance of a lifetime.  While there were aspects to the film I enjoyed, I also found a few things I disliked. First on that list: Maggie Gyllenhall. I wish Katie Holmes would have reprised her role as Miss. Rachel Dawes, because I just couldn’t stand Gyllenhall!   Secondly: I am a traditionalist when it dealing with the Joker, which means no makeup and no glasgow smile, but I did enjoy how the Joker was portrayed. And, last but not least: why must Christian Bale make that stupid voice, while playing Batman?  He makes a wonderful Bruce Wayne but I’m still not sure if I like him as the Bat. As a sequel, this is wonderful, but  I still prefer Batman Begins.  4 Stars.

I agree with pretty much all of the points here. Yes, Bale's voice is annoying. And yes, I prefer Joker without the makeup too. Heath Ledger performance was amazing nonetheless, though.

    What can I say about this movie that hasn't already been said....This Is THE GREATEST COMIC BOOK MOVIE EVER MADE!!!!Christopher Nolan has shown the world that Batman isn't a franchise that died off after Batman and Robin, he shows that there is still an audience for this type of movie. Chris Nolan has pretty much made the movie of his career it'll be hard for any of his other movies to top this movie. This is the Batman film that we've all wanted to see, it's dark and very violent for a PG-13 mo...
