Best comic book movie ever made to the big screen. Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker. Good music and score and good acting.this film just show how dark is batman and it did it well.

I was never a fan of batman movies, this one was different. it seemed a more adult themed movie than other batman movies, and even if you are not a batman movie fan , it is the kind of movie you would enjoy, as a dark thriller, a farfetched dark thriller but a dark thriller, with action.

This movie is a masterpiece. Everything being beautifully done down to the costume/makeup (Joker). Heath Ledger gives us the must iconic and mystifying villain ever portrayed on the big screen. One of the greatest movies I have seen. I think it is overrated just because it is #4 on this list. It breaks my Top 25 but not my Top 10.

Let's Put a Smile on that Face

Batman isn’t a comic book anymore. “The Dark Knight” is a haunted film that leaps beyond its origins and becomes an engrossing tragedy. It creates characters we come to care about. That’s because of the performances, because of the direction, because of the writing, and because of the superlative technical quality of the entire production. This film redefines the possibilities of the “comic-book movie.”

“The Dark Knight” is not a simplistic tale of good and evil. Batman is good, yes, The Joker is evil, yes. But Batman poses a more complex puzzle than usual: The citizens of Gotham City are in an uproar, calling him a vigilante and blaming him for the deaths of policemen and others. And the Joker is more than a villain. He’s someone whose actions are fiendishly designed to pose moral dil...

No witty title required.

After Batman flew off the rooftop after witnessing the Joker card in Batman Begins, a sequel was awaited. The hype was higher than Snoop Dogg (*Badum Tss*).
But the wait payed off… Big time.
Back in Gotham, Batman is in full effect. He is an organized person of justice, going on missions nightly, as we see in the first few scenes.
The movie is structured so well. The prologue puts us right into our new villain's work and from there, we get one of the best stories put to screen, with some of the most menacing character relationships and threatening plot points. The Dark Knight exceeded the expectations of a normal Batman film. This had crime, gangsters, an actual city, a hero and a villain.
There was always something around every corner, with so much going for it and it worked.
So man...

Welcome second movie.

The Dark Knight
Christopher Nolan and gang are back with their long awaited sequel to their 2005 hit Batman Begins. Begins was a surprise critical darling and extremely well made. It was shocking considering it was the first attempt at Batman in 8 years. Overall the first run at Batman on the big screen turned out to be a failure. No one expected Nolan to follow up his comic book debut with an even better film. It was unheard of for a sequel to better then its predecessor especially one on such a high level. Nolan proved us all wrong.

Turning this into a crime drama was one of the best ideas Nolan could have had. Delve further down the well of realism and bring more into the batman world. It's much easier to get behind a superhero when there is a since of realism to his or her story...

Was I the only one annoyed by the unnecessary vacuum noise throughout the majority of the movie?  Vacuum cleaners do not build suspense in my book, they build irritation.  This movie was good but not great.  I am surprised it's still considered so popular.  I personally prefer Batman Begins, which does make my top 50.

I, too saw The Dark Knight, in the movie theatre, when it first came out 3 years ago, and it was a wonderful movie.  Both Christian Biale and (the late) Heath Ledger gave wonderful performances ini TKD.  Too bad that Heath Ledger died so young.  Heath Ledger's "Joker" was even more sinister and dangerous, as well as much craftier, than Jack Nicholson's Joker in Batman.  The craftiness of Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight lent it an even more villainous edge.

It was an amazing movie with Nolan at his best and Christian Bale did justice to the role. Liked bad Batman Ending.

I just watched it for the second time and I still find it to be very good film. I don't think it deserves to be #1 or even in the top 10. Maybe in the 25-30 range.
