The Dark Knight is the second film in the rebooted Batman film franchise.
Like the first, Batman Begins, this one takes up the difficulty mantle of trying to make a comic book world seem real, and succeeds brillently
.To say this film is "edgy" "gritty" or even "dark" does it a disservice because those worlds are so often missused. But nevertheless it is all three.
The film starts a bit disjointed, and has a few minor plotholes, but apart from that its practicely perfect;A complex, interesting story, believable characters, superb acting and some nice stunts too. Heck, they even chucked in some very nicely handeled morel dilemas too.
Oddly, many aspects of this film felt like I was watching "Prison Break". I put that down to the complex, clever ploting, the location and the apperence of William Fichtner near the start. As well as one specific scene involving some convicts on a boat which was a very "prison-break-esq" moment.
Overall, an excellent film which ends on a pitch-perfect note. One that both concludes the film nicely, as well as setting up for a hopeful third film.For those who watched the film and are eager for more, similar toned Jocker-ness, I strongly recommend the following excellent short amateur film;
