all of it. However calling it the very best superhero motion picture ever looks like faint appreciation, considering that part of what makes the motion picture excellent-- in addition to pitch-perfect casting, impressive writing, and an engaging vision-- is that it bypasses the typical dream component of the superhero genre and makes it all terrifyingly genuine. Harvey Damage(Aaron Eckhart)is Gotham City's brand-new district lawyer, accuseded of cleaning up the crime rings that have disabled the city. He goes into an anxious alliance with the young police lieutenant, Jim Gordon(Gary Oldman), and Batman(Christian Bale ), the caped vigilante who appears to trust just Gordon-- and whom just Gordon appears to trust. They make progress until a psychotic and fatal brand-new player goes into the game: the Joker(Heath Ledger ), who offers the crime managers a solution-- kill the Batman. Even more complicating matters is that Damage is now dating Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal, after Katie Holmes rejected the opportunity to reprise her role), the longtime love of Batman's alter ego, Bruce Wayne.In his last completed role before his tragic death, Ledger is great as the Joker, a volcanic, really frightening force of evil. And he sets the tone of the motion picture: the world is a dark, unsafe location where there are no simple choices. Eckhart and Oldman also shine, however as excellent as Bale is, his character turns out rather dull in comparison(not uncommon for heroes dealing with more colorful villains ). Director-cowriter Christopher Nolan (Memento)follows his seriously well-known Batman Begins with an even much better follow up that sets itself apart from notable superhero movies like Spider-Man 2 and Iron Male since of its sheer psychological effect and striking sense of realism-- there are no suspension-of-disbelief superpowers here. At 152 minutes, it's a shade too long, and it's much too intense for kids. However for the majority of motion picture fans -- and not simply superhero fans-- The Dark Knight is a movie for the ages.-- David Horiuchi On the Blu-ray disc The Dark Knight on Blu-ray is a fantastic home-theater showoff disc. The detail and colors are incredible in both dark and bright scenes (the Gotham General scene is a fantastic example of the latter), and the penalizing Dolby TrueHD soundtrack makes your house rattle. (After providing us just
Dolby 5.1 in a number
of huge Blu-ray releases this fall, Warner came through with Dolby TrueHD on this one.)Among the most fascinating components of The Dark Knight was how certain scenes were shot in IMAX, and if you saw the motion picture in an IMAX theater the film's aspect ratio would all of a sudden alter from standard 2.40:1 to a thrilling 1.43:1 that filled the screen 6 stories high. For the Blu-ray disc, director Christopher Nolan has somewhat re-created this experience by shifting his film from 2.40:1 aspect ratio (through the majority of the film )to 1.78:1 in the IMAX scenes. While the result isn't as significant as it remained in theaters, it's still an appealing experience to be enjoying the film on a widescreen TV with black bars at the top and bottom, then seeing the 1.78:1 scenes totally fill the screen. The primary reward feature on disc 1 is "Gotham Uncovered: The Development of a Scene,"which is 81 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage about the IMAX scenes, the Bat match, Gotham Central, and others. You can watch the film and access these featurettes when the icon turns up, or you can just watch them from the primary menu. A welcome and unusual feature is that in addition to English, French, and Spanish audio and subtitles, there's an audio-described option that permits the sight-impaired to experience the film as well. Disc 2 has two 45-minute documentaries on Bat-gadgets and on the psychology of Batman, both in hd. They integrate motion picture clips, talking heads, and comic-book panels, however aren't the kind of thing one has to watch two times. More interesting are 6 eight-minute sections of Gotham Central, a faux-news program that gives some background to events in the motion picture, plus a variety of trailers, poster art, and more. The BD-Live part on disc 1 is more fascinating than on some earlier Blu-ray discs, which could be just a matter of the material beginning to catch up with the technology. There are three brand-new picture-in-picture commentaries, by Jerry Robinson(developer of the Joker), DC Comics president Paul Levitz, and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.-- he's a Batman fan who's made some motion picture and TV cameos), plus you can tape your own commentary and upload it for others to watch. There are also three brand-new featurettes ("Sound of the Batpod, ""Harvey Damage's Theme," and"Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard ")and two movement comics("Mad Love,"featuring Harley Quinn, and"The Shadow of Ra's Al Ghul"). Not offered is the digital copy of the film(compatible with iTunes and Windows Media, standard meaning, download code expires 12/9/09 ).-- David Horiuchi Product description The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime.
