When Batman, Gordon and Harvey Dent launch an assault on the mob, they let the clown out of the box, the Joker, bent on turning Gotham on itself and bringing any heroes down to his level. (www.imdb.com)
The Dark Knight is my favourite movie of all time. I saw it 10 times at the theatre before it ran its course. This movie had everything you could ask for in a Batman/comic book/super hero story. The plot is filled with lots of action, drama, fighting, explosions, terror, and craziness. Everything flows together and the musical score fits perfectly. Christian Bale is the best Batman, and no one will ever be able to surpass the role of Heath Ledger as the Joker. Very sad though this movie was not nominated for Best Picture, because it was one of the best movies of 2008 and of the 2000’s. Such a great experience on the big screen and small screen.
my star rating: 10 out 10
