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 don't like this film, I don't 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. (though aleph's review has the only redeeming reading i've ever seen for this film.)
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…
Favorite super-hero movie of all time.
I loved it!
Incensato come un capolavoro incredibile è la riproposizione in salsa fumettosa di un capolavoro vero, cioè Heat di Mann. Dalla rapina iniziale, allo scontro Joker-Batman, tutto combacia. Di nuovo tante botte, tante esplosioni, tanti soldini e delle improbabilità temporali nella seconda parte che fanno paura.
This is everything you want in a superhero movie. Everybody remembers it for the Joker and for its inherent dark tone, but doesn't get enough credit for elements like its subtle humour and awesome action pieces. In a film landscape where the box office is dominated by superhero films, nothing seems to be giving the audience the full package. You get either quirky and fun but devoid of any real stakes for the heroes or their universe in the Marvel series or you get dark and gloomy for its own sake without any levity (or good writing or directing) in the new DC Cinematic Universe.
From the very first scene The Dark Knight is a tension-filled ride. As soon as…
my hair literally disintegrates leaving me completely bald every time I watch this. what a FILMÉ
A single philosophical stance maximalized as an entire city, the lawful good and evil struggling for breath against a backdrop of chaos and darkness.
This movie is bloody fantastic, enough said review done
This is still a great movie. There are plenty of holes here and there, but overall they made a complicated movie well-paced and with good flow. The acting is amazing. I wasn't a big fan of two-face's terminator look, but other than that a well-made film.
I want you all to vote on what you think are the greatest films of all time!
