Review: The Dark Knight

The best comic book adaptation of all time. Heath Ledger is stunning.


I agree. Everyone is stunning. The Nolans present a brilliant and dark film. Gary Oldman is great. Christian Bale’s Batman is the definitive screen portrait. His Bruce Wayne is a pitch-perfect playboy caricature. Heath Ledger is creepy, disturbing and utterly brilliant. He is the Joker. The underrated score by Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard. Aaron Eckhart puts on a successful performance. Maggie Gyllenhaal works out well as the love interest.

This is a pretty great movie. The Dark Knight is another testament to the fact that Batman is the best superhero character ever created.

– R.H.
