BATMAN - The Dark Knight - A Movie Review

Artist : Christian Bale Vs Heath Ledger
Director: Christoper Nolan

Dark, complex and Thrilling. It may be a Batman film, but this isn't a kid-friendly action movie full of the bams and pows of the original series. This is a pitch-black action-thriller with drama and tragedy. But still, it will certainly keep both comics fans and action movie audiences equally happy.

In this movie, the two lead characters, the Joker and the Batman have to deal with a violent past - a past that is dominated by the Father. For the Joker it is the vengeful, sadistic Father, while for the Batman, it is about the loss of the protective Father shot dead in a random street robbery. Both are troubled men, both are fractured, and they choose different ways to deal with their respective legacies.

The cast are -somehow- perfect. Christian Bale "IS" Batman. Heath Ledger excellent performance as a Joker -which is terrifying- many says the best Joker ever. Aaron Eckhart is equally good as the new D.A, Harvey Dent. And last but surely not least, Maggie Gyllenhaal deserves praise for taking over the role of Rachel Dawes from Katie Holmes.

This movie is awesome. Each set piece is done perfectly, leaving the audience breathless. THE DARK KNIGHT is surely filmmaking at its best. Its subject matter may be dark and depressing, but it's still entertaining as a superhero movie does. Excellent Movie. A must see.

Starring: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal
