The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight

Saw The DARK NIGHT oops KNIGHT recently (2 days back) at the same theater where i saw IRON MAN and if you are one of my regular readers u must be knowing how bizarre my last trip to that theater ( SATYAM multiplex) had turned out to be . So to avoid all the problems i had to face last time i decided to start from my house well before time and ended up reaching there 1 hour before the show time 😦 .

Well ,lets come to the movie. Quite frankly i have always found BATMAN as the most boring of all the superheroes but i think i have to accept that this movie has changed my opinion completely . The movie was just AWESOME!!!. Two and a half hours of spectacle that u would witness would be sure to make such an impact that u cant ignore thoughts creeping in even after the movie gets over.. 150 mintues is long for an Hollywood movie by any standards but the movie has everything in it that would make it an enjoyable and thrilling ride .

I must say that this must be one of the best superhero movies i have ever seen. The movie deviates From the normal conventional and stereotype superhero action movies where you have the super hero fighting his ass off to make the world better. Yes ,the batman does involve in some rescuing acts in this movie but it goes unnoticed before the Heath ledger’s ( joker ) role of a psychopath.




The movie has an unusual importance for the Joker’s character . Joker’s performance has to be the best i have seen from any villian. He plays a role of a psycho.The make up that had been given to accentuate the inner character was superb whihc makes him even more terrifying . He makes an impact from the very first scene he shows up . He is cruel , he is terrifying and yes he is intelligent .Every expression he makes looked natural which brought an unbelievable amount of life to his psychotic character.

ThIs would be one of the very rare movies in which you would enjoy a villain’s charecter more than the heroes .I had to admit that christian bale’s (batman) role was totally overshadowed by heath ledger’s stand out performance.No wonder Talks have been going for an oscars already . He was just amazing every time he was around .

Special effects and stunt sequences are simply superb , a special mention to a car chase involvving police van, joker and the batman would be a must . The scene lasts for a looong time until BATMAN’s car is thrown away by a bazooka. There was a huge roar ,when without warning Batman suddenly pops out form his car in a thing that looked like a bike with MRF tyres fitted and AK 47 on both sides 😀 . What ever that thing was it looked awesome .

Aaron Eckhart who plays the role of Harvey dent was good too .He added Something which made the script even more powerful and interesting . His make up for the later part of the movie was just excellent .Reminds me of the movie MUMMY . Quite scary i would say .

The movie ends as usual with BATMAN fleeing and the government blaming him for some deaths which makes it easy for the director for another sequel .

On the whole the movie was superb ,a huge applause which followed in the hall after the movie got over said it all .I would recommend this movie to every one , including those who stay away from action movies.WATCH IT !!! not to catch up a super hero flick but for the sake of late HEATH LEDGER’s wonderful performance .

    “ThIs would be one of the very rare movies in which you would enjoy a villain’s charecter more than the heroes .I had to admit that christian bale’s (batman) role was totally overshadowed by heath ledger’s stand out performance.”

  10. in the words of the joker.. “lets put a smile on that face” *does the pressing of lips together in the eerie fashion thing*

    the joker is the BEST super villain of our time. real pity that the man behind the makeup had to die. his death is our loss. may his soul rest in peace.

    we love you heath ledger and we loved the joker even more. you shall live on in our hearts forever!

  35. dekha ya nahi trailer?????????? 😡 chances hai ki tu ne nahi dekha ab tak…. 😡

  36. ekdum jhakaas picture hai bhidu. watched it in IMAX and the experience was double jhakaas.

  37. This seems a very nice movie…

    P.s. How are ya? Lots of hugs and kisses

  38. 🙂

    quite same review of what I thot 🙂

  39. good review for an equally good movie. Like you, even I found Batman quite boring, mostly because he comes out only in the night (of course, bat comes out only in the night). But this movie sure did surpirse me. again, I feel its becuz of Heath’s performance rather than the presence of Batman. and also I feel that the transformation of Harvey Dent was not written well.

    My all time fav Superhero is Spiderman, I watched SP 2 in Telugu (cuz that was the only option I had at the time of the release) and watched SP 3 four times in five days !!!

  40. I keep meaning to torrent this movie.

    Maybe Ill do that tonight since I have read your review!

  43. I am well, thanks. However, about your question on my blog, I have some problems, so everything is NOT fine. But thank you for asking.


  44. I remember commenting somewhere on your blog!! Where where….. Ohh I got lost in comments 😀

    I got a few seconds scary dream yesterday which made hair on my neck stand………… and now I realized who was the villain in the dream….. the joker……. really, I will write about it afterwards, thanks for reminding indirectly 🙂

  45. thanx 4 ur meherbaani… :mrgreen: i m honoured,,, 😆

  46. saw it today,n loved joker but i think bale looks impeccably handsome ! i cant stop swooning over him !

    “There was a huge roar ,when without warning Batman suddenly pops out form his car in a thing that looked like a bike with MRF tyres fitted and AK 47 on both sides 😀 . What ever that thing was it looked awesome .”

    yes yes yes! it looked phenomenal !

  47. I been waiting to watch this movie for sometime now. I MUST see it this weekend….
    I am sure I am gonna love it. although I love superman much much better than all the superheroes… but then yeah Batman is a human, while superman is from another planet.


  48. @smallstar
    oh ..i hope everything comes back to normal soon..

    @ meghna
    hmm. .. well yes bale looked good..specially with that exceptional physique 😉 …
    Did people cheer for him when he popped out in that batpod ,, 🙂

    @ sudha

    would love to read about ur dream 😉

    @ riddhima
    😆 😛

    @ xylene
    watch it without fail ..i love spider man more..superman movies have more stories less heroic things thats what i feel 😛

  49. @arvind: I hope the same thing, but… I have the impression that everything is really getting worse! 😦


  50. The only thing is missed in the part 2 is the BACK UP, rest of the movie as you said is superb.

  51. @ smallstar
    hmm.. it would be better 🙂
    thanks for the kiss 😛

    yeah 🙂 movie was superb..

  52. @arvind: yeah I think it, too! 🙂

  53. This movie is one of the best out there…and it’s worth a watch for a lot of reasons, Heath Ledger being one of them. “Why So Serious”?? 😀

  54. Why so serious.???
    never thought this line would become this ffamous 🙂
    yeha its an awesome movie


  56. I went ans saw this movie the day it came out – July 14, 17 – I cant remember the day but I left the movie theater in tears. Not because the movie was horrible, it was absolutely fantastic, but because the world had lost such a wonderful actor, a wonderful person. Mind you I had never met Heath but you could just look at him and see that there was just so much good inside him, that there was this quiet strength that almost made him angelic. The DVD came out Dec. 19, I went and bought it. To be honest I have every movie Ledger ever played in. Its almost been a year since his death – god it doesnt seem like it and the oscars are coming soon. I say if he doesn’t win it there may be riots in the streets.

  57. The dark night is a fantastic film and surely film of the year and i would put a large part of that down to heath ledger performance as the joker. I am a very big movie fan and for me the role of the joker is the best performance and character i have seen any actor/actress play ever in the films ive seen. Overall a fantastic peice of work the batman films are a different hero movie they are quite mature films despite the whole hero villain thing but great work. A final point, it really is a shame to lose such a talented actor he performed to the best and he flourished well done Sir Heath may god be with you 🙂 R.I.P x

  58. i loveeee himmmmmm!!!!!

  59. i love you jokerrr beautiful foto mucukssssssssssss

  60. Hey buddy tht was a nice Job.I felt like watching it though fiction is not my favourites.u hav paid a tribute to Heath Ledger thru ur review.Cheers!!!
