In the second installment of the Batman movie series, Batman joins forces with Gotham’s new district attorney, Harvey Dent to fight the Joker. Playing the joker’s role was Heath Ledger, who has done a fantastic job. His performance was incredible. And I have to agree when people around me tell me that he should be awarded an Oscar posthumously.
Christian Bale was outstanding. Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent) has essayed his role with perfection. Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Caine were good too.
The screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan was outstanding. Christopher Nolan (who also directed the first batman movie- Batman Begins) has done an even better job with the direction of the Dark Knight. He has raised the bar of superhero movies to an all new level. The action sequences and special effects drew OOHHS! and WOWS! from my fellow movie goers. I actually heard people clap after a few such mind blowing scenes.
The twists and turns in the plot provide for an entertaining and thrilling two and half hours. I can safely say that this is by far the best superhero movie that I have seen. On a scale of 0-5, I would give it 5. [continues]
