The Dark Knight ★★★★

Flawed, imperfect, problematic and po-faced with a constant stream of wondrous moments, a terrifying performance from Ledger and a real flair for tension, character, and action. It’s all too easy to bash the dark knight, for what it does wrong. On the other hand, the good stuff makes Nolan’s film one of the greatest blockbusters of its era and sitting in the upper echelon of comic book movies.
