Synopsis:
"The Dark Knight" reunites director Christopher Nolan with star Christian Bale, who returns to continue Batman's war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.

Long Dark Night - The Dark Knight review by Corinthian

Spoiler Alert
04/03/2009

I have to confess that I'm not particularly a fan of comic strip but my wife is and this film had excellent reviews so I hired it. In summary this film could not be criticised for lack of action, (it is non stop), or the acting; Heath Ledger is indeed brilliant as the evil (very scary) Joker and Christian Bale and Michael Cain play their roles well, but the film has a very flimsy plot and is far too long! Also 12 Certificate? I'm not easily shocked but this film is extremely violent and I won't be encouraging my 13 year old to watch it.

Overrated - The Dark Knight review by MC

I was not particularly impressed with The Dark Knight but that's not surprsing after something gets rave reviews it usually turns out to be the opposite. Disappointing.

Ledger - The Dark Knight review by JD

Spoiler Alert
02/03/2017

I write the 8th review to date. All 5 scores (from 1 - 5) have been given. I am surprised anyone would give this less than 3 stars. It is quite long and the plot is not that original or dynamic but come on this is batman. Heath Ledger's flat was allegedly a shrine to the joker when he committed suicide. I can imagine that he devoted himself entirely to the role, it is utterly mesmerising. The tortured evil is utterly convincing. Caine and Bale are belittled by his brilliance. His death is a devastating loss.
