Not just a perfect comic book movie, not just a perfect Batman movie, but darn-near a perfect movie, full stop.

The movie's a real neo-noir all right, wallowing in darkness, thrilled with how bad we are, and getting such a kick out of our impending doom it cheers you right up.
August 25, 2018
A film is only as good as its villain. By that standard, The Dark Knight achieves true greatness.

The Dark Knight always ought to be played on the biggest screen possible, and played loud, like a Led Zepplin song. Director Christopher Nolans' skyscapes, the helicopter shots and views from the 200th floor, are IMAX at its best.

It might not be the most fun superhero movie ever made, but it's certainly the most mature, complex and intriguing of them all. [Full review in Spanish]

The Dark Knight may not supply a happy ending, but there is a feeling of exhilaration as Batman rides off from the pursuing cops, and the realization that this is another big step forward for comic book movies.

The action sequences are like being injected with a shot of adrenalin straight into the heart.
December 13, 2017
This may seem like faint praise, but about the highest compliment I can give Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight right now is to say that there were many long stretches during which I didn't even realize it was a superhero movie

Too much psychology and not enough pop. It's possible to be too serious, you know.
May 31, 2017
Pretty deep stuff from a popcorn picture, and it's one reason why the movie theaters right now are such a rich vein of entertainment.
May 31, 2017
One of the most stylish extravaganzas in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

As summer movies go, The Dark Knight is head and shoulders above most.
May 31, 2017
You will feel utterly numb after the screening of The Dark Knight. The film is bleak and brilliant.
March 8, 2017
The Dark Knight may mirror the ethical dilemmas & duplicities of the War on Terror, but it also offers a different, better way through them, with a seriousness that Bush & his clowns were never able to muster
October 21, 2014
The weight of expectation should have crushed this movie.

August 20, 2014
Nolan has squeezed enough material for a saga into two and a half hours. The action moves insanely fast, the exposition is breathless, and the big setpieces practically tread on each other's heels. Down time doesn't exist in this film.

August 20, 2014
Declaring Christopher Nolan's Batman movie to be the best-ever comic book adaptation or one of the top action flicks of all time understates what he accomplishes.
August 20, 2014
This is an impressive film in many ways, and Nolan directs with real confidence, yet the overall result feels cumbersome.
August 20, 2014
The Dark Knight is a clever, loud, technically brilliant film, superbly designed by Nathan Crowley and dramatically lit by Wally Pfister. Whether such a movie can bear the increasing moral weight imposed upon it is another matter.
August 20, 2014
The Dark Knight is a triumph from beginning to end.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
