The Dark Knight — The best Batman movie ever made to date — 9*/10

  • Overall: For its grit and realism, it is definitely great work by Christopher Nolan. There are some genius things and a few weaker things. It's all about the Joker.
  • Who is it for? Those looking for a psychotic realistic version of Gotham.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Known actors: Christian Bale, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.
  • Setting: DC Comics universe, in a realistic version.
  • Style: Dark action superhero.
  • Story: Very detailed and captivating with many successive plots. There are a few good risks that were taken, many action scenes, solid Joker moments. Realistic. Dark.
  • Ending: Amazingly good, thanks to the Joker.
  • Epilogue: It's not a waste of time and it's short.
  • Dialogs: The Joker's are great, the rest, not so much.
  • Characters: Here, the Joker is the top dog. The rest lack depth and usually fall into some form of stereotypes or other, especially the bad guys. Batman isn't so bad, but why do they have to make his voice so gravely all the time?
  • Acting: My hat goes to the Joker, once again. A royal performance, the best since Nicholson (read my review here), maybe even better. Others are pretty solid too, no complaints here.
  • Visuals: Realistic.
  • Special Effects: Great.
  • Afterthoughts: I saw it multiple times and still see the jewel, although personally, I don't like the stark realistic look and some of the stereotypes.
