Uhmmm how do I start. This latest Batman movie is everything a Batman fan wants to watch in a movie. But it isn't the typical superhero movie, it's a dark drama and a mind blowing thriller that will leave you breathless. The film is great, its exciting, spectacular, full of action and adventure, suspense and mystery to the fullest and some nice black humor in selected moments, it will keep on the edge of your seat the whole time. The story is excellent, it is one of the best adaptations from a comic book, of course with some changes but only for the benefit of the movie. The plot is very well developed, Batman and Gordon find alliance with a newly appointed DA Harvey Dent to stop a vicious killer with a warped sense of humor known only as The Joker, a threat to both the good, and the evil of Gotham City but some circumstances will change everything. The cast is one of the best ones in a move, Christian Bale is very good as Batman, he is a great actor and confirms that is one of the Best Batman's ever. Heath Ledger steals the show, his performance is flawless, you really can see a demented person whose only joy is to kill and create chaos, with this role, his final one, he stops being a great actor to become one of the greatest. Aaron Eckhart has a superb performance as Harvey Dent/Two Face, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman as great actors, their performances were really convincing and maybe the weakest one in her acting was Maggie Gyllenhaal but still very good and decent. Well my conclusion is that The Dark Knight is the best movie of the summer, the best Batman movie maybe just behind Tim Burton's Batman and a movie that will be remembered for a very long time.
