For 3 years after Batman Begins (2005) I’ve waited for the sequel. Now it’s here. For those who didn’t get the joke above, well, go figure it yourself.
I remembered back in 1989, I was still in pre-school, dad took me to my first Batman movie. I was F scared of Batman more than I was of the Joker. This time it’s different.
Heath Ledger (died Jan ’08) took the limelight, nailing the Joker character, playful, sinister and mentally derailed. Coupled with seasoned actors, Bale, Caine, Freeman and Eckhart, The Dark Knight is one imperishable, spectacular and chaotically-brilliant movie.
The Dark Knight belongs to a category where no comic adaptation could enter before. Every frame forces you to the edge of the seat, and once in a while, you need to remind yourself to breath.
Dark Knight certainly is not an action movie. It’s a film that explores literary themes of the hero and villain, as well as order and anarchy. I highly recommend it, in fact, I already booked for another screening.
This is my favorite scene.
The movie poster. The movie’s catch phrase: Why So Serious? There’s actually a marketing site for The Dark Knight, whysoserious.com
I’ll be dishearten if this movie isn’t nominated into Oscar for Best Movie and Best Actor (Heath Ledger).
ps: Thanks to I, queueing for the tickets isn’t an easy task. Sorry dear, I’m sure you’ll be sleepy during your training.
