The Dark Knight

Category: Movies
Genre: Action & Adventure
Why so serious?I think, this is probably the darkest and the best Batman film ever made so far. Heath Ledger (RIP) was brilliant! Heath’s portrayal of the Joker makes Jack Nicholson’s seem like a joke. He was really scary.

I got exhausted watching this film. It was 2 and a half hours long but it felt longer than that. It felt like every scene drained my energy not because of boredom but because I was hooked. The film taunts the audience to choose. To think. To join in the chaos. The eternal battle between good and evil becomes something even more. It asks you where you draw the line when lives are at stake and then asks you “Why so serious?”.

Christian Bale was also good as the conflicted Caped Crusader but honestly, the Joker stole the show. Other villains were introduced in the film that added to the chaos. I really suggest you watch it. It’s worth it. Batman fans won’t be disappointed.

I give it 4.5 stars.
