The Dark Knight Review

This movie has undoubtedly exceeded my very unrealistic expectations , in fact, this movie would have exceeded my expectations no matter how high they were. I am sick of his movie being compared to stupid movies like Spider-Man and Fantastic Four because saying that this movie is one of the greatest comic book movies of all time is bringing it down a notch, because folks believe it or not this is by far the greatest comic book movie of all time, and not only that, but it’s also one of the greatest movies of all time period. That’s right, I said it, and I’ll say it again, this is one of the greatest movies of all time. What are you gonna do, call me a fan boy, say that I would’ve liked it even if it sucked because it was a Batman movie. That’s not true at all, I didn’t start liking Batman until Batman Begins, which was in my opinion an A+ movie, but this was so much better in so many ways. This is an amazing movie, if you miss seeing it, I’m sorry. 

Let me start my next comment with a little message to the 1 to 1000000000000000 ratio of critics who didn’t like this movie. There was barely any of you out there, but to that minimal amount of people, Fuck You. I’m sorry, I know that I’m supposed to allow everyone to have their own opinion, but I can’t think of a single reason to give this movie below an A, and A+ for that matter. The only reason I could possibly think of is the fact that you couldn’t handle everyone in the world liking it, so you had to be the few people to give it a bad grade, or maybe it was that you couldn’t handle the fact that this genre of movie could bring a movie this amazing. Whatever the reason, to those very few critics who didn’t give this movie a good grade, find a new profession and fast, the one you have right now isn’t going to work out.

This movie was flawless, I could watch this movie 100 times and still not figure out a single thing that bothered me in the movie. It was flawlessly directed, written, and acted by every cast member especially Ledger, but I’ll get to that later. Maggie was ten times the Rachel Dawes that Holmes was. Aaron Eckhart was delightfully cool and fun that transforms into disfigured and dangerous, and he makes the part his own with such indiscribeble flair. Caine and Freeman are at the top of their game as always. Christian Bale was fantastic, he added much more complexity to a complex character, he surpassed his original already good performance with flying colors. 

Now we get to Heath Ledger, I’ve been looking forward to this performance for a year now, where as I was anticipating the movie itself for three years. My expectations for this character were off the charts, I knew this character would be amazing, but to tell you the truth, I had no idea. The Joker actually exceeded my expectations, he was insane, disturbing, hysterically funny, suicidal, and loads o fun. It is impossible for a character to be better than this, impossible. I am just sad that I started my Top 50 characters list before I saw this movie, he would have been near the top, For Sure. I don’t want to give anything away, but lets just say that he makes feel insecure while he’s around you because he torments your mind with disturbing choices. The Joker is what you would get if you put Jack Torrence, Alex DeLarge, Hannibal Lecter, and paint in a blender and then multiplied it all by 10. Heath Ledger/The Joker is amazing, he kills, destroys and burns, whatever comes his way for one purpose only, to have a blast. Well, while The Joker was having a blast, I was having a blast watching him. He put a smile on my face every time he walked on the screen.

The Dark Knight is spectacular. Oh, forgot to mention this, this is a comic book movie so every kid on earth is gonna wanna see, but take my word for it, do not bring children to this movie. As much as I want to see this movie make a lot of money because it’s amazing I’m gonna have to say do not do it, this movie is not and will never be intended towards children. Anyways, back to the review, The Dark Knight could not have been better than this was. Go see it multiple times now, you will not regret it. If you go in there wanting to have a good time, you’ll have and amazing time. If you go in there thinking you’ll have an ok time, you’ll have an amazing time. If you were dragged into it and you hate Batman and super hero films, you’ll have an amazing time. If you go in there trying to be a critic and attempting to point out flaws because you feel that there has to be at least one person who hates it, you’ll still probably have an amazing time, except for a few of you who are blinded by comic book physique. I know I said it multiple times already, but I’m going to say it again with a few different adjectives, The Dark Knight was unbelievably incredible and leaves you with an astonished speechlessness. This is why I love movies. The Dark Knight is a masterpiece.

Grade: A+

  1. Man that was a great movie and I liked everything you said it could not be bettter by one of gothams favorites

  2. Loved the movie, but your review was lacking

    1. There are not 1000000000000000 people in the world so when you say 1 in 1000000000000000 people that is simply outrageous.

    2. What do you have against paint in a blender

    3. Your cuss words hurt my ears

    but seriously, dark knight was jesus in movie form

    one question, in that shot where batman comes out of the alleyway on his motorcycle, why are the flames spinning aroun the front of his bike?

  4. masterpiece

    this is the very first time in my LIFE i love a movie in this way

    i’ve never seen an actor like ” the joker ”

    no more words to say….

  5. Okay, this movie was epically amazing, I completely agree, but there are some things about it that keep it from flawless, c’mon.

    Maggie Gyllenhal might be a better actress than Katie Holmes, but let’s face it, she’s nowhere near as pretty. She looked like an old, sad, drooping pug, like a seventy-five year old woman dressing up as a girl in her early twenties. I couldn’t help but think, amidst how spellbound I was throughout the movie, “shit, bitch is lookin’ fug” every time she came on screen. When the Joker was calling her pretty at the dinner party, I was like, “Wow, I see why you call yourself the Joker.”

    Also, and I know he’s supposed to disguise his voice and everything so there’s a legitimate reason, but really – Christian Bale’s child-molester voice? HAHAHAHAHAHA. The first time I saw the movie, I barely noticed, but the subsequent times? Wow, I just couldn’t take certain parts seriously. Towards the end he growls something along the lines of, “Don’t shoot the boy, Harvey” and I die. It’s just… hahahaha, too much, dude – too freakin’ much.

    BUT none of this should be taken as a testament to my thoughts on the movie as a whole – I maintain that it is one of the best movies I have ever seen and I, like you, will never get tired of watching it over and over and over again. Magnificent, Heath Ledger is untouchable, and anyone who hasn’t seen this masterpiece is severely missing out.

    Especially on Blu-Ray – it’s SICK.
