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.

Brilliant Movie - Action packed and tense - not to be missed! - The Dark Knight review by Kazzie

Spoiler Alert
18/08/2008

A lot of people commented that they are put off this film with the fact that it is so long. However, the film is too good to realise that it was so long!

Christian Bale plays batman excellently again - and is along the same theme as Batman Begins (a little "darker" than previous batman films).

The late Heath Ledger played the Joker brilliantly and really presented his acting talents. Again, comparing the original Tim Burton's Batman - Heath Ledgers batman is a little darker (and crazier) than previously played by Jack Nicholson - which was more comedy and tongue-in-cheek humour. At certain points of the film I even questioned whether it should have been a higher certification than "12A"

In the film, the new District Attorney, Harvey Dent - is Batman's key to regaining a normal life. Harvey is a great guy who has the power and attitude to clean up Gotham (usually left up to Batman) - however things don't go to plan with the Joker and corrupt cops around and things aren't that simple when Harvey Dent's girlfriend just happens to be Rachel - Bruce Wayne's childhood sweetheart and all-time love (as shown in Batman Begins)

I liked every aspect of this film – action, tension, special effects, impressive acting…and more! I was glad I saw it on the big screen - please watch you will not be disappointed (Although my Husband was a little annoyed that the storyline did not tie in with the "old" batman films!! Lol)

If you liked Batman Begins - you will love this!

A Very Dark Night Befell Us - The Dark Knight review by GavinK

Spoiler Alert
25/12/2008

I went along to this expecting a somewhat harder storyline, but was astounded by the violence, noise and documentary style of a very dark film. I fear the team responsible for this have forgotten just how daft, batty, ludicrous and just plain nuts the Batman series has been! Jim Carey, Jack Nicholson, Tommy Lee Jones amongst others, including an incredibly sexy and OTT catwoman, have all stepped up to the plate and played their roles perfectly, to our expectations. However this latest offering appears to be nothing more than an appeasement to the die-hard gore seekers. Yes there are memorable moments and at points I felt some scenes were thrown in just as a casual nod to Batman of old, to try and keep us oldies happy. But the sheer level of violence and realism throughout left me cold. If this is entertainment, leave me out of it. I felt I was watching a training video for aggression and insanity at times, and this is one film that I will not revisit.
