I agree, The Dark Knight was not an entertaining movie, and I walked out in the middle of it, lest I fall asleep.

I expect my entertainment to be empowering and maybe escapist, but not so 'dark' and depressing.

How it got a 9 rating on IMdB, I have no idea.

You can never give a movie a proper rating or opinion if you walked out in the middle of the movie lol.

Rather than comment on my review, maybe it would be better to post your own review.

Seeing half of an unentertaining movie is plenty of time to form an opinion.

Yes OK it it IS enough to form an opinion of course, but it's not really a fair review.

Now you're starting to stutter.

Do you have a review or not?

It was pretty good, best parts were in the second half, that's where most of the escapism you wanted was. Chases, fight scenes, flying, explosions, deaths, drugs, hallucinations etc etc.

Not bothered to make a full review or anything, I didn't know that I had to make any review, lol.

I have to agree, in that, the second half is what drew me in. Maybe I'm just easily entertained. Actually, I know I'm easily entertained...... *stares out window, only to be distracted by a curious little squirrel gathering nuts*

Yeah, doesn't take much for me!!!

This movie was simple amazing. Heath Ledger as the joker was stellar and I loved the nods to Nickleson's Joker in several scene and character traits(the laugh was identical). This is the joker I always loved but never saw because it was too dark, twisted and gritty. Thankfully that is popular these days
People who are saying this movie sucked have little taste and probably thought the prequel star wars trilogy was actually watchable.

Me and my two friends went to see TDK the first night it came out. I had seen all the good reviews on yahoo and rotten tomatoes and thought to expect a great movie. Well, I set myself up for dissapointment, but not really, this movie is so not the great movie that I' was made to believe I would be watching. Even my friend agreed with me, it was overhyped, I mean, people are probably watching it because of Heath Ledger's death. I've seen some great movies, and this was not one of them. The one who did like it was my friend who is really into Star Wars, he doesn't make sense to me and refuses to give me a rating from 1 to 10 or a to f for movies, he seems to lie and say movies he wants people to watch are good. Like, a lot of people thought clone wars sucked, and he said it was not that bad. Well, the movie goddam sucks, and he wants to lie to himself that it was not. Maybe just personal opinon but i swear to you TDK is not a great movie. I can name so many other movies this year that were far more entertaining than that.


I mean, even Hancock was more entertaining. And honestly, we had gotten into the movie theater 70 minutes early, along with a lot of people, just waiting to watch it. And these people were so excited that they kep clapping at movie trailers, so they were already hyped up, and ready to clap , because the theater was packed. But it's been so overrated. Go see Hancock, Step brothers, or something else, this movie is quite boring and slow. And that Maggie Gylenhal looks like such a dork, I would never buy a sexy billionaire, who walks around with sexy women, fall for the girl who looks like a nerdy college student. The scene where they are at the party, and Batman walks in with 3 hot chicks, then you see Maggie with her covered up dress, and grandma hair pinned back, absolutely ridiculous.

Dark Knight = A Most Horrible Film

- I cannot agree more. If I was not with my friends in the cinema, I would really wanted to walk out within the first 50 minutes. Having stayed watching the whole movie painfully, I can decide for certain that Dark Knight is the worst movie that I have ever seen.

I really liked TDK, Pocky, how can you say Hancock was more entertaining, it's good for one watch, TDK is so much more intelligent and multi layered it'll be worth buying and watching again and again.

Hancock is like one of these "Off the production line" movies and very predictable.
I thought the Star Wars prequals were crap but if your friend liked them so what, I have a friend who loves that crap too, but I wouldn't claim he was lying to himself about how good it was for him.

The Dark Knight is a most distateful film. It starts off with horrid violence, guns and more guns. The joker shoots a huge gun, a rocket laucher and carries explosives in his jacket. It's sad to see that entertainment comes from seeing people just shoot off bullets and act stupid crazy.

This film was not the batman I grew up to love. The fun, comic book character from the comic books or the lovable TV show. This was a film passed off as a batman film, and trying to be the next Die Hard or James Bond film.


I counted more than 400 bullet shots in this film, it was silly gun violence and it promotes guns and explosives as the only way to entertain the ignorant public. The joker was nothing more but trying to be insane and it was mostly pathetic to watch how hard he tried.

Batman had NO batcave, he's still the wannabe James Bond from the first film, there's nothing superhero about this Batman, he's basically a pissed off dude in a GI-JOE costume. He's like a ninja or government operative. Silly really. You see, they have tried to make Batman too real, like a ganster and dealing with thugs on the streets, but the ironic part about all of this is that you can't have one guy blow up a hospital and get away with it. In a way, nothing you see in this movie is real, but because they are using real looking cars and guns, the appeal to the audience is more real. so it's still a morphed reality.


The problem with this film is that they have taken the fantasy away from Batman. He is now a real guy that bleeds and has his GF killed. He's now more like the Punisher with a cape and more money.

And again, you have another rooftop ending. What is it with superhero films and rooftops this summer? IRON MAN's battle was on a rooftop, The HULK's battle was on a rooftop, SPIDERMAN's battle from last year or so also took place on a rooftop. I mean come on get more original. Here it's not a rooftop, but again a high rise building. Almost a rooftop. The Joker is a lame remake of the CROW and the GOTH look. It just puzzles me that most young people prefer darker characters that kill and act like criminals and they consider this to be great work.

There was nothing creative about the Dark Knight, it was basically a shoot em' up violent film that promotes insanity and guns. And anyone who likes this movie should see a therapist soon because there is nothing to like about it. Two faced with a burned face get's up from the bed, with one side of his face with acid burned skin and he can still move his eyes without his eye muscles. Yet, people think this is reality.

Batman has become some sort of Bruce Willis of Gotham City. And if you think about it, Batman has to be one stupid dude, everyone in Gotham City has a gun, except him, that's not a very smart Superhero.

In the end, I prefer the sillyness of Tim Burton's Batman and The very entertaining Tommy Lee jones as Two Faced.

And to mothers, if you don't want your kids to end up in a prision for shooting someone please don't take them to see this film.

Jedimiller.



To Make this Even worse they also taken the Sci-fi Away from Batman in the Nolan Batman Films

This film is More Like Horror Film than Superhero Film Except Just like it's prequels, The Dark Knight is devoid of Fantastic Elements thanks to the Tradition of Christopher Nolan.

No way man.... The Watchmen was amazing.
A truly adult and dark comic book film.

Much better than TDK.


Granted it's not Spiderman or X-men or Fantastic 4.... but why would anyone want it to be?


The watchmen is a truly excellent film.


But it's all personal opinion at the end of the day.

Why The Dark Knight's Joker is Mostly Pathetic?

"fun" of the comics?

This was based on the much darker comics about Batman...

The Joker stole any scene he was in, played as a true psychotic (which he is in the comics) by the late Ledger.

And Morgan F.'s line about the guy trying to blackmail Bruce Wayne was utterly priceless... "Let me get this straight, you think that our boss, one of the richest men in the world, spends his nights pummeling Gotham's worst criminals with his bare hands, and your plan is to blackmail this person? Good luck..."

Sure it was darker, but so were the original Tim Burton movies... If you're comparing to the camp tv show and movies of yesteryear....that is a completely different ballgame.

Personally, I liked the film, and millions of others seemed to also, voting with their dollars at the box office....

And if you want to get hoity toity with it, you can always examine the social commentary about what defines madness, what will people due to survive, etc.

wow...the dark knight was an AMAZING movie.

It accurately depicts what the creators of Batman intended for Batman to be.

Its just like Ninja Turtles...the TMNT were supposed to be very dark, and violent ninja's when they were originally created, but 'morally acceptable' demands made it such that they had to sweeten things up and make them less realistic, and more feel-goody


Batman is no different.

He lives in a city ridden with crime and corruption, beyond anything we know here today.

He's a regular man who relies on intellect and gadgets to overcome the bad guy. The original creators never intended batman to be a cheesy idiot with a dorky sidekick who mutters ignorant, half assed one liners like "holy torpedoes batman!"

Yes, there were big guns, explosions, and blood.

It always makes me laugh when someone says "i didn't like that movie because ti was VIOLENT"

pa-lease

explain to me how thats any different than, say, this:

I actually enjoyed the film. The joker was played to perfection just like in the comic books. He his a ruthless psychotic maniac who loves chaos and I feel Heath Ledger did a great job of portraying that. I'm still not satisfied with any of the Batman's. I guess a bad movie for some is a good movie for others. Also I'd like to point out that when Batman came to life on television for the first time people would have demanded it be taken of the air if it showed the true Batman and all his villains like they were portrayed in the comic books. Nobody wanted that kind of evilness on their television. That's why it came out as comical as it did so that parents would endorse it for their children to watch and buy the action figures etc... Those days are long gone now and I'm glad to see the real villains of the comic book days come to life on the big screen and television. It's OK if you didn't like The Dark Knight Jedimiller, as long as I enjoyed it is all it matters to me.
