Batman The Dark Knight, also known as TDK, is an American movie directed by Christopher Nolan as part of his 3 part trilogy that reboots the story of Batman which began back in 1989 with Tim Burton as director. The Dark Knight is the second movie from Nolan`s Batman The Dark Knight trilogy which came out in 2008, 3 years after the first Batman Movie: Batman Begins. returning actor Christian Bale takes back his role of the character Batman and with a returning cast of Gary Oldman as James Gordon, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox. Aaron Eckhart is introduced as Harvey Dent, Gotham`s new District Attorney whom allies himself with Batman The Dark Knight to combat a new criminal mastermind calling himself Joker. Heath Ledger was chosen to play the infamous `Joker` whom takes advantage of the demotivated crime families of Gotham City and offers his services to killing Batman for a huge sum of money. The Gotham City`s Crime family agrees to the offer and Joker takes his sense of dark sadistic humor and turns it loose onto Gotham.
Batman armed to the teeth with his high tech gadgetry takes on Joker but Joker elaborately sets Batman up to fail causing Batman to choose one life to save out of the 2 people he admires the most in the world. Harvey Dent, like his comic book counter part, turns insane from a freak accident that grotesquely disfigures half of his face and body. (spoiler alert) Harvey, now calling himself 2 face, turns to villainy and takes revenge on on Gotham City and the corrupt cops that he believes is responsible for the death of his girlfriend Rachael Dawes.
Batman Movies: Batman The Dark Knight Review.
I was fortunate enough to see this Batman movie on the screening night, a day ahead from everyone else. I was blown away from Christopher Nolan`s Batman The Dark Knight. This Batman Movie has everything a guy would want, action, adventure, suspense; however, the film kept a great amount of love and loss to keep the women happy. The role of Heath Ledger as the Joker is epic. There will be no one at this time that can play a better Joker than Heath Ledger. During the movie, Ledger`s role of Joker gets you at the edge of your seats with his fantastic acting and spectacular twist to the Joker that has been played by Jack Nicolson in Time Burton`s 1989 movie `Batman`. By the end of the movie, I did not know who was the main character, Batman or Joker. Even though Christian Bale plays a very good Batman, fans wanted more of the Joker but sadly, due to a mixation of prescription drugs, Ledger passed away early 2008.
