Quando comecei a assistir mais filmes eu precisava de um caminho pra seguir e caí de cabeça em um monte…
The Dark Knight
Why So Serious?
Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as the Joker.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Isn't it funny that true classics can stand up to decades of close scrutiny and critical analysis, yet still retain their standing among the greatest films of all time...but a deluge of completely obvious flaws in today's so-called "masterpieces" are immediately evident upon first viewing?
Let's begin this review by asking a question: what does it mean for a film to be "intelligent" or "mature"? These types of words are frequently kicked around like a ten-cent hacky sack when people discuss films such as this, but what do they mean? In what context do these adjectives apply? I would like to find out.
I'll begin at the top and work my way down, starting with the best aspects of this…
The mother of all comic book man superhero sequels finds Batman battling a baddie that not only terrorizes Gotham City in every way you could imagine but haunts your ass with his mesmerizing performance that in my opinion is one of the greatest performances in cinematic history. The mask in his hand. Bootleg Point Break moment. Backstab. Colonel Sharp? Hello school bus. The makeup on his face. The voice you never forget. I prefer Gary Oldman as a baddie but Gordon is the shit. Batman uses a gun? Bat groupies? When Batman talks he sounds like he needs to shit but can't. Sir Michael Caine is a legend. Where did Katie Holmes go? Harvey Dent's hair. Courtroom shenanigans. Who would…
I'll admit, I'm not gonna lie. I was REALLY scared to revisit this again. This really got me into film. It's not the film that started my love for film, but it's the first film that made me say "I wanna go into the film industry" so it's really close to me. I've seen this countless times but I noticed that for many people, it does'nt hold up well today so I was really scared to revisit it. Thankfully, I still love it as much as I did the first time I saw it years ago.
Christian Bale does another great job as Batman/Bruce Wayne. I also don't mind his voice here. It's a lot more gravaly and exaggerated than…
If you do not like this film, I do not like you!
Introduce a little anarchy.
This film is just astounding, My all time Favourite.
* The incredible direction of Christopher Nolan.
* The masterful cinematography by Wally Pfister.
* Heath Ledger's iconic and memorable performance, not many have captivated the screen as well as Heath Ledger. Totally immersed into his character, completely compelling. Along with brilliant performances from Caine, Bale, Oldman, Eckhart and Freeman.
* The brilliant score by Hans Zimmer adds another layer of excellence to this masterpiece which helps create a scene to be so much more.
* The Greatest Batman film? Yes. The greatest comic book film? yes. The Greatest film of all time? ye- okay lets not push it.
i don't think i will ever not be angry with the nolan batman films.
but let's just focus on this one scene. the "some men just want to watch the world burn" scene. because it is the perfect evidence for just how committed nolan's films are to casting anyone resisting oppressive systems as villains.
alfred: a long time ago, i was in Burma, my friends and i were working for the local government. they were trying to buy the loyalty of the tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. but their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. so we went looking for the stones. but in six months, we never met anyone…
Batman does some stuff. Joker does some stuff. Robin still trapped in closet.
What else can I say about this landmark in the superhero genre that reminds us of the times when DC was good. The action setpieces are amazing, Heath Ledger's post-humous performance as the Joker is haunting and the themes of chaos vs order are more relevant than ever before now. A true classic.
I would check that I've watched this before, but I didn't like it the first time. I also may have fallen asleep, but I'm not 100% sure if I did see it before.
Rated RAAM for Racism Against Asian Men.
Heath Ledger's Joker absolutely makes this movie. I completely buy into Christoper's Nolan's darker version of Batman.
6 out of 5
Still the best comic book movie of all time.
My favorite film of all time. I have always been a Batman fan, more so a fan of comics. This movie is everything a great movie should be, and sets a gold standard that may never be reached in my eyes. Its the a machine of a film, with every cog in the machine working in unison. A masterpiece.
The best superhero movie of all time, and it's not even close.
(Maybe The Incredibles)
