And it's a masterpiece. This is possibly the best super hero movie of all time. Even the critically acclaimed Spiderman 2 doesn't come close to touching The Dark Knight. Never have I watched something that combines action and dramatic elements so well.
I wouldn't want to spoil the show for you, so I'll leave the plot out.
I don't mean that it's good because it's action packed, or has you on the edge of your seat for 2 hours. In fact there's lots of talking, lots of it.
The show is awesome beyond words because of how powerful the script and direction is. The Joker is insane, he's not motivated by money, he doesn't care about anything, he has nothing to lose and all he driven by is to bring chaos and suffering. Harvey Dent's downfall was so tragic and moving it's hard not to shed a tear for the turn of events. Each scene in the show was expertly directed to tear out the emotions from the depth of your heart - the terror of the insanity of the Joker, the sorrow for Harvey's loss, the sadness but respect for the choices Batman has to make.
At the end of it, you're left wondering in fear as to what a human is actually capable of. Throughout the show, there are no hints or suggestions of super powers or supernatural occurances, only the darkest of the human soul. That's what makes the Joker so terrifying - he's just another man, albeit an intelligent one driven to the edge.
There's an extremely powerful interplay of human emotions, of hope, of human at its best, and also at its worst. You'll be touched there's no doubt about that.
The show is also all about choices, and making sacrifices for the better of others. That's what makes a true hero.
The Dark Knight has risen above all the movies in the same genre to deliver an absolutely spectacular performance.
Also, the soundtrack by Hans Zimmer is so awesome I went to buy the cd right after I came out of the theatre.
If I could give it 6/5 I would!!!
