The reason I love The Dark Knight is because it is the most perfect rendition I have ever seen of good vs. evil and that evil that I’m talking about is my #1 favorite character of all time, and I don’t see any character surpassing The Joker, because what you have is an evil so psychotic, so sadistic, and with zero empathy for the world he’s destroying in his path that nothing he does next would surprise you unless it was something good. He’s genius in all he wrong ways because he faces his enemies with impossible choices and enjoys watching them scrirm. He’s not even able to kill the one person who stands in his way because he enjoys the thrill of having a nemesis, because he understands that like the Devil needs god, evil needs good, and The Joker needs Batman or life would just be so boring. From the many ways Joker got his scars to The Joker’s twisted logic of what’s right and wrong, the Joker is the greatest character in film history in my opinion and I dare you to argue that fact.
- Actor: Heath Ledger
- Quote: “You, you just couldn’t let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are, incorruptable aren’t you? You won’t kill me out of some miplaced sense of self-righteousness and I won’t kill you because you’re just too much fun. I get the feeling you and I are destined to do this, forever.”
- Action: Burns an incredibly large amount of money just so he can “watch the world burn”.
