Dont get me wrong, I thought it was a really good movie, but I didnt think it was that great overall. I thought the whole two face thing wasnt done very well, to me anyway it seemed kinda contrived and shallow how quickly the two face  change happened. Also the girl who plays rachel was pretty medicre at best, she was better than Katie Holmes by far but theres something about her face I dont like. Maggie Ghelenhal isnt ugly, but her face looks weirdly pig like, I wanted to see her punched in the face.

I have to agree, two face was just annoying and the movie dragged on way too long.

Personally, I thought much of the acting in the beginning of the movie was very poor, and that the plot had many holes and inconsistencies. I enjoyed the film, but I agree, it is quite overrated. I really didn't like it as much as Batman Begins.

I don't think its overrated. I mean i don't regard it as the best or my favorite movie of all time.

It is however my favorite superhero / comic movie out of all of them.

Megan Fox is a terrible actress, sure she looks good but looks only get you so far.

Also I didnt like how they faked Gordan's death, it seemed like a total cop out way to bring him back. Also showing Scarecrow at the start just to show a random cameo annoyed me bit, the guy who lays Scarecrow is one of the best actors around and to see him reduced to a cheap cameo role was sad in a way.

I'd give it like 9/10, but the way people are acting as if it's the best film ever is ridiculous. There's plenty of flaws with this movie, like with plenty of others, but no one seems to give that any thought.

The Dark Knight is probably one of the best movies ever. It isn't at all overrated

83 sounds about right.
I think it's more about all the idiots running around thinking it's god's gift to cinema. It's a great movie and far better then most crap that comes out, but it is nowhere near the best.

Yes. The story was hard to figure out, the chronology / plot needs a lot of fixing. The music was somewhat repetitive - particularly that siren sound that came up every time something was about to happen. The scenes themselves were directed and acted out excellent - that was what made the movie great.

I heard that the siren thing was Jokers theme and they wanted to make like jaws so you know he's coming or something like that.

It's a great film, but certainly not the best out there. I'd rank it at a similar level to Zodiac.

I wouldn't say it was anywhere near the best movies ever. Best Summer blockbusters and best adapations, probably, but of all the movies ever made, there's plenty better. The real test will be how it holds up once all the batfags have stopped ruining everything with their 'why so serious?' stuff and it can be experienced as its own entity.

That siren sound was perfect. It perfectly represented the Joker: Always there, ruining your day, and there's nothing you can do about it.

Yeah... they could probably have done something better with the costume instead of having that huge plastic-looking one, I mean the guy could barely turn with that thing on, a costume should not slow down the hero.

Do some of you really think the Dark Knight is one of the best movies ever? I know its just your opinion, but I am curious as to why you think it is. I thought it was a very enjoyable hollywood blockbuster with some amazing action and acting wrapped up in a semi intelligent plot. I wouldnt even call if the best film of the year. But thats just my opinion.

  Was has been your favorite film this year, FilmGuy?

  I've been pretty disappointed with this summer's flims. The Mummy was half-decent, Hancock was uninspired, and Indiana Jones destroyed the franchise. Iron Man was cool, though. I've seen alot of other, non-action/superhero films this year, but I'm a little brain-fried at the moment. Can't remember them.

It was the best comic book movie made for sure, but not the best movie ever.

The rating it got from rotten tommatoes, putting it up near THE GODFATHER, and above movies like DONNIE DARKO is fucking insulting in my opinion. It's great, but it doesn't even touch greatness like that.

On IMDB it's beating City of God. >_>
It also has the same score as Godfather and Shawshank Redemption.

I think it was a great movie and all, but I found a few parts of the plot odd and messy and some of the acting to be just "okay".
I also thought the action scenes were poorly done.

Don't get me wrong though I think it is a terrific movie but I put it with movies like 'Fight Club', 'Children of Men', 'No Country for Old Men', 'Se7en' and 'Leon'.
Excellent movies just not perfect.

The movie was a mess, batman was barely in it, when he was he wore that dreadful bat suit and hang around the a police station (what's dark and scary about that?) . I think Nolan went to far with doing what he wants.

It's not the next Godfather, obviously. But it's still very good. Not overrated.
