The Dark Knight Review

The_Dark_Knight_Batman_1_If ever a movie lived up to all the hype surrounding it, The Dark Knight is the one. You start off with a great story, throw in a great cast of actors, add a lot of adrenalin inducing action and you’ve got one heck of a great movie experience. Heath Ledger gives an outstanding performance as The Joker, one of the most psychotic movie villains of all time. Reprising their roles from “Batman Begins” you have Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/The Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s/Batman’s butler, Gary Oldman as police Lt. James Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, who basically runs Wayne Enterprises and procures all the equipment Batman uses.

Maggie Gyllenhaal takes over the role of Rachel Dawes from Katie Holmes and Aaron Eckhart joins the cast as District Attorney, Harvey Dent. We start out with what looks to be a simple bank robbery, but find nothing is as simple as it seems. The crime syndicates of Gotham City are soon meeting to decide what to do about the gung ho District Attorney, the police department and Batman, when approached by The Joker with a proposition to rid the city of Batman and return Gotham to it’s previous crime ridden ways. They of course soon find that this plan too is not as simple as it might seem. There is plenty of action, thrills and entertainment in this movie. We highly recommend it!
