The Dark Knight

{4.5/5} “Some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

The Dark Knight, released in 2008

Batman and Jim Gordon are working on taking down the mob in Gotham, when the Joker decides he’s not getting enough attention. Meanwhile, Rachel is dating the new district attorney Harvey Dent. And Bruce Wayne continues to act like a millionaire playboy, like taking the entire Russian ballet company on his yacht.

I was wowed by this movie the first time I saw it, but I now think that it’s not quite as satisfying as its predecessor.

The scenes on the ferries, especially the last scene with the prisoners, are tremendous.

It’s about different types of heroes.

Stars Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Nestor Carbonell, and Keith Szarabajka. Directed by Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins).

James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer’s music comes to the fore more often than in the previous movie. A splendid new theme for Harvey Dent is added.

This is the 3rd time I’ve seen it.
