Yes please. I saw it last night and it was amazing. Best film I've seen this year, and one of my favourites ever. I found it engaging from beginning to end. Only things I didn't like were:
- The ending. After the whole section where The Joker gets captured, send Batman to the wrong place and then The Joker escapes, the ending was a bit flat.
- Two-Face. Not as good as The Joker, and the effects on his face were so over the top - almost funny. I liked the way it showed how he became Two-Face, but once he turned bad, a little disappointing.
- Bale's voice as Batman. Need I say more?
The Dark Knight was the best movie of 2008, it seemed like every time I thought it was the last action sequence, they just kept coming back with more. Simply amazing, and this is coming from somebody who thought that Batman wasn't even a superhero because he didn't have any super powers.
Saw it opening night and it was AMAZING, Heath easily is the best joker ever and christian bale is all ways the best batman sept that they write him to have way to deep of a voice.
Two face was a lil flat but only cause of the over the top CGI they did for his left face they should have toned it down a lil bit so as to be believeable, otherwise the movie was amazing, Though I have to hate heath now because he played such an amazing part, then died they can no longer use joker in a future batman movie.
"I enjoyed the movie, but Christian Bale's voice for Batman was too deep and hard to understand sometimes, other than that, the movie was excellent.I totally agree, I was like wtf did he say when he first talked. Heath did phenomenal job portraying the joker, he definitely outshined Christian Bale. It's simply the Best Batman yet.
"About four or five people in my theater went "Oh shit, Debo!" during the boat scene.lol yeah i was like??? isn't that zeus from the one hulk hogan movie? lol i knew he was debo too but i laughed that he allways plays such bit parts.
Maybe the cheese has slipped off my cracker, but wasn't that Michael Jai "Spawn" White, as the gangster that The Joker shanks, early in the film?
Loved the movie. I thought it stumbled and fumbled during the last half hour, and ended with a thud, but the rest of it is near perfect.
"Unlike some of you,I thought-two-face was really well done.His teeth were cgi of course,but the burnt part of his face was mostly make-up,and only a little cgi touch up on it,I respect it for htat reason.Two Face was perfect... especially if you think about the last time they had two face in a movie.... yeah it was the movie with bat nipples
he's not going to win an oscar for this. Critics and all that stated on Friday that it was all hearsay and that bloggers were behind this oscar movement. I for one, think other wise. Also, there will be another joker, just you wait. They can't kill of a character that was so important to the comic book. They will replace him, but none will be as good .
Ledger played an AMAZING Joker in this film. What a great performance, really brought life to the Joker.
And yeah, I agree with the two face effects being kinda weak. I know that's what he looked like in the comic, with the twisted lip and all, but it just looked stupid in the movie. And the eye was like: "Really? That's the best you could do?". Aside from that though, I loved the movie.
The Dark Knight was probably the best movie theater experience I've ever had. I was at a crappy theater with the sound turned up way too loud, so calling that experience the best certainly says something about the movie. I sat in awe pretty much the whole time. I would safely call it the best movie I've seen this year. Just big moment after big moment, relentlessly moving toward the finale. Heath deserves the Oscar for sure.
Two-Face is definitely one of Nolan's most clever tricks. I thought Dent was a gimmick incarnate in the comic and on the animated series, but the nickname, the coin, and his motives got the "realism" clearcoat and I was most pleased with the results. Besides, Aaron Eckhart is normally a complete tool(case in point, Thank You for Smoking's tag-worthy line about being as good a talker as Manson was a killer even though Manson never killed anyone!) but this is easily his finest performance. Yes, the makeup takes a big step over the line of surreality, but I don't think I've seen that particular brand of, "Oh my, god..." gooeyness since the first two Hellraisers. Ultimately, his best, and downright savage, scenes late in the film are hard to appreciate in a full run-time since they're a sticky molten core of emotional intensity after two hours of...well, some already pretty brutal emotional intensity.
This next comment may draw the ire of the middleschool mind, but I think he should get an Oscar nod just as much as Ledger. Yet, I agree with claysol that Ledger won't get recognition conventional wisdom should afford him and, by extension, Eckhart will also remain awesome only because the casual moviegoer says so.
The Academy giving out awards to deserving parties. Why don't we all just throw up our arms and try to be decent men in an indecent time.
I have a poster of the TC's picture of the Joker. Everynight I fall asleep staring into it. And everynight I have sweet dreams of teaming up with Heath Ledger and taking down the Batman. Last night was special however because we handed Batman a bomb. Batman started running through the city trying to find a safe place to place down the bomb. To the right there were nuns. To the left there were cutre little duckies. Batman could put the bomb nowhere and had no choice but to take the blunt of the blow, but it was just a fake bomb that said "boom" when it hit the fuse.
We then started to say "curses, foiled again" and ran away. Maybe tonight will finally be the night where we can take the Batman down.
All I have to say is I'm speechless. I don't know what to type, there are no words to describe how amazing this movie is, or how Heath Ledger did more than "nail" his character. Not once in the 150 minutes of this movie did I say, "Wow, this dialog sucks" or "Was this scene really needed?" like that awful "sex scene" in the Matrix Reloaded.
