I always get a kick out of this. Why does it irritate some people that the majority love this picture? Just relax and take a deep breath. Everything will be a-okay.

I assume you are referring to the review ? What is the point of a movie review site if you are only allowed to like what the majority likes ? Many people liked the movie, many others didn't. And that is pretty much the way it is with almost everything. It is also called freedom of opinion, one of our basic rights.

You obviously just skimmed over what he said. He was refering to those who are "mainstreem haters" didn't say everyone should like it but alot of will do the opposite and hate a movie because it's famous

The fact that he's against it for being so popular isn't even the worst thing about his comment. but rather how unspecific and lazy it is.

Flawed - Basically describes every movie ever made. What film is considered perfect to every single person who ever sees it?

Overrated - A slightly more valid reason to dislike a film than it simply being flawed, but still not enough to give it a rotten rating.

"Overrated" is a logical fallacy. Being in the minority who don't like a film and the film not being worth everyone else's praise aren't the same thing.

I expect that from people on the Film General board on IMDb, but not from actual critics

ok sorry dude but you are wrong! just because most people loved this movie doesn't mean that its good, im not saying is bad BUT it is overrated, do you think transformers revenge of the fallen is good just because grossed alot?

Raoul Klein Twennaar

Give me one good reason why it is overrated? Acting, storyline(and yes, there's some narrowminded people who will actually use the fact that its story is not possible, but the fact remains that this storyline is even good when compared to any price- (forget oscars)winning script seen in film. The reason why everyone likes this movie is exactly the fact that all of the above and more is WAY above average. I would like you to rewatch the movie without being dubious about the 'superhero' vibe. It's NOT just a good movie because it grossed well....Get your facts straight.

I think you're confused about the point he was making. He's not making a comparison between the films, he's saying that just because a film is popular, doesn't mean it's good. Obviously all of the Transformers films are shit, and The Dark Knight is good. However, I do have to say it is a little over rated. So calm down, and try to realize the context of what someone is saying before you prattle on and make yourself look silly again.

I want this review gone it has to be a repeat there have been reviews too similar to this I'm just to use to The dark knight being at a 94% and 8.5 I just can't explain it

OMFG....this sat on top as the highest rated comic book film which it deserved for 2 years...1% above iron man and spider-man 2....now spidey-2 nonetheless a great film is above this when it isnt better than this....dude look wtf u did...ur review was unnecessary not to mention 2 years too late...so you had no business coming on here and reviewing a movie to bash it and destroy its tomatometer...when this film is now 9.99 on dvd.

Jul 14 - 05:25 AM

Duncan W.

Duncan Willoughby

i'm sorry not to say that 93% isnt a great tomatometer for this...but ledger's performance carried the whole movie and im sorry but for me 93% is just too low for such a memorable film with a memorable performance that stands alone b4 others...this should be like a 97%

Jul 14 - 05:31 AM

If Ledger's performance carried the whole movie then 93% is too high.

Ledger's performance was great, but everyone did a decent job in the film too! And so what if you didn't like the cast? Christopher Nolan's directing was artistically stunning and carried me (NOT the film) through the storyline. If there's any weakness about "Dark Knight," it's a superhero film and that leads to people underestimating it...a little like how Ledger's Joker underestimated the people of Gothom.

Ledger's performance is what made this movie unwatchable for me...I just found his character cheezy and forced. And I've tried watching this movie 5 times because of all the people telling me how great it was and to give it another chance.

No offense, but I find that assertion horribly unsupported. Subjectively, I can't convince to like Ledger's performance or the film.

However, I hope you being the "outsider" and not liking the film doesn't make you think of yourself as some intellectual rebel. When a film is liked by both the majority as well as the critics, it seems to point to a consensus by both the laymen and academic.

Also, you speaking of the supremacy of Iron Man is what throws your entire assertion into disrepute. Iron Man was nothing but a product-placing mockery in which Downey simply played his typical typecast: Hey I am the arrogant cynic, with witty one liners! How contrived.

I would be interested in what made his character so "cheesy" (a very powerful descriptive explanation)and how the Iron Man franchise is so authentic.

It just needs three more fresh reviews before it can climb back up to 94%.

Steven Mihaljevich

Lets say hypothetically that we take out Health Ledger from the film??? What is left? Oh yeah, thats right - A pathetic unauthentic deep voiced clown called Christian Bale as Batman, a B - grade actor named Aaron Eckhart, an absolutely useless narrative driving the film, Clown - like, children's program action sequences that were so boring I could cry, ITS A BULLSHIT ACT!!!! the best thing apart from Ledger was Gary Oldman, who had the hardest part in the film (playing the straightest character whilst still being charismatic) you guys are all such naive suckers - "Oh Heath! the acting! Oh the character of the joker! Wooowwww! - Can anyone look past the joker apart from me? Your blind as bat shit. The film is average to say the least! It takes more than one best acting Oscar to save a film

The father of films whose never been in films. I agree Christian Bale's voice as the bat was a little tweaked, but lets put you in a mask and tell you to make emotions when the viewer can't see three quarters of your face. Without the mask i thought he did kickass. And i don't think you're giving Aaron Eckhart enough credit. He's nowhere close to being a B-actor. Yes compared to Ledger's performance it's kind of hard to shine but there's no doubt in my mind he will always be two-face.

That is the most mindless logic I've ever heard. Not only would the movie still be amazing with some other vision, but Nolan took the character from the fiction and turned it into the new joker. Sure Heath was amazing but you're suggesting a movie will be worse without its main villain? Especially an inspired creation with amazing writing and top notch acting? Of course it would be worse, you're taking out half the plot you imbecile. The story is original, dark,strong, and well scripted. Stop trying to be different from the masses by voicing foolhardy, idiotic opinions.

They're allowing opinions. This person didn't like this movie. Is it that hard to understand? You need to stop wasting your life crying because this movie isn't rated as high as you want it to.

I'm sorry but you really need to take a step back because maybe you shouldn't be analyzing movies. The Dark Knight is not only the best batman movie ever made by far, it is a brilliant piece of artwork.
