THE DARK KNIGHT (2008)
It has been three years after the prequel “Batman Begins” (2005). “The Dark Knight” is the sixth film that brings Batman into widescreen since Tim Burton’s “Batman” (1989). The Director is still Christopher Nolan who is previously known for his unique indie film “Memento” in 2000. The movie breaks the all-time Box Office records. It has earned more than one billion dollars in worldwide and has already passed "Titanic" Record in 1997. The movie is based on Frank Miller’s version of Batman, which is more mature and realistic. Christian Bale is Bruce Wayne. Thiz role seems to be a big leap of his career since his first appearance as an innocent kid in Steven Spielberg’s war movie “Empire of the Sun” in 1987. “The Dark Knight” is also starred by regular Cast members like James Cain, Morgan Freeman and Maggie Gyllenhaal who replaces Katie Holmes’s character in the previous movie. The best of all is Heath Ledger who delivers his last performance as the eternal enemy of Batman, Joker. The other villain is played amazingly well by Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face. Nevertheless, if they want to show original Joker’s character as in its comic, in my opinion the dream Cast would be Adrien Brody or Jim Carrey. The Script is nicely arranged by Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan. The storyline is dynamic and unpredictable. The action is on the right track, is filled with “Bat” equipments and car chase showdown. It’s a good movie to watch, it’s simple and explosive at the same time. I think that if we want to be fair, we also have to give high appreciation to Tim Burton’s “Batman” which has already set up an impressive tone for other next Batman movies or even other Superhero movies later. Burton successfully provides a new acceptable point of view for thiz kind of genre. The tone is dark, mysterious, and full of believable characters and environments.
