The Dark Knight Reviews
Owens grade: A+
The Direction Of The Movie Is Totally Innovative,The Screenplay Was Like A Non-Linear Video Game,And The Performance Of Heath Ledger As The Joker Is Nothing But A Masterpiece
"BEST 'JOKER' MOVIE EVER MADE"
This however does not mean Heath overshadowes the rest of the cast. Christian Bale's Batman is great, because it isn't just a superhero, it is a symbol. This makes Bruce Wayne's character also much more hearth and makes his motivations more believable. The over the top Batman voice did not even throw me off guard, because I was so invested in the character.
The side characters are also great. Aron Eckhart as Harvey Dent and Michael Caine are the stand-outs for me. They gave me the versions of their character I always wanted to see on the big screen.
Maggie Gyllenhall is also a great replacement for Katie Holmes, she gives a lot (and I mean a lot) more dept to her lines than Katie did in the first movie. Her character has also a lot more to do in this movie.
The action is also top notch. The motorcycle chase scene was breathtaking. And a lot of the stunds become an inspiration for future movie to come.
All in all this might be not only the best comic book movie ever made, this might actually be one of the best action movies period.
I realise the enjoyment that can be found in watching The Avengers team up for the first time and RDJ find his footing again in a fun summer blockbuster but this is the best comic book movie ever made.
Yet this movie is one of the best moves ever made! Heath Ledger works magic in this film, Bale returns as my favourite Batman/Bruce Wayne, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman and Maggie Gyllenhaal all turn in performances that only feather the true epicenes of this movie.
But Heath Ledger though...
