Christian Bale returns as The Dark Knight.
It is absolutely more than an action movie, it’s a film that explores literary themes of the hero & villain, as well as order & anarchy. For as much (brutal and bone crushing) action as there is in this movie, it’s the acting that makes it a great piece of work. All the actors have their moments. The Dark Knight possesses the essence that should always exist in the handover from comics to the big screen. This film is the darkest Batman, as well as one of the blackest, violent and gripping films, ever made.
I have fond & scary memories of the character and actor below. Thank you, Heath Ledger.
