Manufacturer Description

The follow-up to Batman Starts, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the part of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on criminal offense. With the aid of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Lawyer Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy structured criminal offense in Gotham for very good. The triumvirate proves productive, but soon discover themselves prey to a climbing criminal mastermind identified as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman nearer to crossing the great line among hero and vigilante. Heath Ledger stars as archvillain The Joker, and Aaron Eckhart plays Dent. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast as Rachel Dawes. Returning from Batman Starts are Gary Oldman as Gordon, Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

The Dark Knight arrives with great hype (ideal superhero motion picture ever? posthumous Oscar for Heath Ledger?), and extremely, it lives up to all of it. But contacting it the ideal superhero motion picture ever appears like faint praise, because part of what tends to make the motion picture wonderful--in addition to pitch-ideal casting, fantastic producing, and a persuasive eyesight--is that it bypasses the typical fantasy factor of the superhero style and tends to make it all terrifyingly real. Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) is Gotham City's new district lawyer, billed with cleaning up the criminal offense rings that have paralyzed the town. He enters an uneasy alliance with the younger police lieutenant, Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman), and Batman (Christian Bale), the caped vigilante who appears to trust only Gordon--and whom only Gordon appears to trust. They make progress until finally a psychotic and lethal new player enters the game: the Joker (Heath Ledger), who offers the criminal offense bosses a remedy--get rid of the Batman. Additional complicating issues is that Dent is now dating Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal, after Katie Holmes turned down the chance to reprise her part), the longtime adore of Batman's alter ego, Bruce Wayne.

In his very last concluded part prior to his tragic demise, Ledger is fantastic as the Joker, a volcanic, truly terrifying drive of evil. And he sets the tone of the motion picture: the planet is a darkish, dangerous area in which there are no easy selections. Eckhart and Oldman also glow, but as very good as Bale is, his character turns out instead bland in comparison (not unusual for heroes experiencing more colourful villains). Director-cowriter Christopher Nolan (Memento) follows his critically acclaimed Batman Starts with an even far better sequel that sets itself aside from notable superhero movies like Spider-Man 2 and Iron Man since of its sheer psychological effect and striking feeling of realism--there are no suspension-of-disbelief superpowers right here. At 152 minutes, it is a shade far too prolonged, and it is significantly far too intense for kids. But for most motion picture fans--and not just superhero fans--The Dark Knight is a movie for the ages. --David Horiuchi
