About this Film

The Dark Knight

ODEON says...

The wait is over - Batman is back! Christian Bale is back as the legendary crime fighter Batman, who is taking on Gotham's evil new mastermind, The Joker (Heath Ledger). 

'The Dark Knight' follows on from 'Batman Begins' seeing Bruce Wayne's alter ego taking to the streets and one by one putting the bad guys behind bars while making Gotham a safer place. But there's a new criminal in town with every intention of ruining Batman's crusade and bringing the city under his own control. 

The Joker's psychotic insanity spreads fear across the city, rallying an army of followers to join his campaign and kill Batman in the process. 'The Dark Knight' also co-stars Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman as key figures supporting Bruce Wayne in his crusade against crime. Gary Oldman returns as Commissioner Gordon and Aaron Eckhart leads as the new District Attorney, Harvey Dent.

'The Dark Knight' is the second film of The Dark Knight Trilogy, considered by many to be one of the best of all time. You didn't think we were only showing the one, did you...

Honestly, the only people I've come across who enjoyed this movie were either Heath Ledger fans or those who are head-over-heels with all these special effects. My's overrated. The only thing I enjoyed about this movie was Ledger's performance, which was outstanding, by the way. But other than that, it was just another action comic movie with lots of 'cool' effects. Towards the end of the movie, I kept looking at my watch.....

I went to see The Dark Knight and thought it might not be that good, but it was by far one of the best films I have ever seen in my life. The special effects were fantastic, the storyline was not over-complicated and made sense, and Heath Ledger as The Joker was nothing other than genius! You have to buy or watch this film as it is one of the best films ever made! loved it!

Batman Boring

Reviewer: hc2Date: 2008-12-08

I agree with what Boozie wrote about this film. It wasn't that good and that was hugely disappointing becasue i thought Batman Begins was awesome, but this wasn't, for a start for me it was too long as i was fidgeting a lot during the film and there didn't seem to be a constructed plot of substance, it was all cobbled together with just the Joker causing mayhem for the sake of it making it repetitive. Another criticism is that it didn't define what was right and wrong between Batman and the Joker and that it came across as though the film conveyed violence as we don't even see what happens to the Joker when he is caught. Also Christian Bale's voice when he was Batman was annoying as it sounded as though he had a sore throat. But i don't think the moive was all bad though. Heath Ledgers performance in particualar was phenomenal and i liked the non-diegetic sound (music outside the text) which built up the tension when the joker was around and even some of the action sequences were good, in particular when Batman goes to Hong Kong but even then they were nothing special. Overall even these good points couldn't save the movie of a disappointing franchise. There were things to adimire but i can't say i really enjoyed it.
