Product Description

Director Christopher Nolan (The Prestige) returns to Gotham City with this sequel to the critically-acclaimed fan favourite, Batman Begins. In The Dark Knight, Batman (Christian Bale, – American Psycho) squares off against a new, completely psychotic foe: the Joker (Heath Ledger, Brokeback Mountain). However, the Dark Knight finds himself fighting a battle on two fronts when he learns that a prominent political figure named Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart, Thank You For Smoking) is concealing a dastardly alter-ego known as Two Face.

Stills from The Dark Knight

From Amazon.co.uk

The Dark Knight arrives with tremendous hype (best superhero movie ever? posthumous Oscar for Heath Ledger?), and incredibly, it lives up to all of it. But calling it the best superhero movie ever seems like faint praise, since part of what makes the movie great--in addition to pitch-perfect casting, outstanding writing, and a compelling vision--is that it bypasses the normal fantasy element of the superhero genre and makes it all terrifyingly real. Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) is Gotham City's new district attorney, charged with cleaning up the crime rings that have paralysed the city. He enters an uneasy alliance with the young police lieutenant, Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman), and Batman (Christian Bale), the caped vigilante who seems to trust only Gordon--and whom only Gordon seems to trust. They make progress until a psychotic and deadly new player enters the game: the Joker (Heath Ledger), who offers the crime bosses a solution--kill the Batman. Further complicating matters is that Dent is now dating Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal, after Katie Holmes turned down the chance to reprise her role), the longtime love of Batman's alter ego, Bruce Wayne.

In his last completed role before his tragic death, Ledger is fantastic as the Joker, a volcanic, truly frightening force of evil. And he sets the tone of the movie: the world is a dark, dangerous place where there are no easy choices. Eckhart and Oldman also shine, but as good as Bale is, his character turns out rather bland in comparison (not uncommon for heroes facing more colorful villains). Director/co-writer Christopher Nolan (Memento) follows his critically acclaimed Batman Begins with an even better sequel that sets itself apart from notable superhero movies like Spider-Man 2 and Iron Man because of its sheer emotional impact and striking sense of realism--there are no suspension-of-disbelief superpowers here. At 152 minutes, it's a shade too long, and it's much too intense for kids. But for most movie fans--and not just superhero fans--The Dark Knight is a film for the ages. --David Horiuchi

I admit, I came to the new batman films with a somewhat preconceived notion that they would be typical comic book films, glossy and boring, but nevertheless an agreeable way to spend two hours or so. However, I was very wrong, whilst in opinion, it is not quite te masterpiece that some claim, it is nevertheless a brilliant film, the plot is genuinely compelling and the setting genuinely dark. Christopher Nolan has finally got the full potential out of the Batman world not only that but there is some stellar acting on show, not just with Heath Ledger but from Micheal Caine and from Morgan Freeman as well.

Now onto the Blu-ray conversion, which has been the subject of some controversy in the reviews below. My view is that so long as you watch it without purposefully looking for the aspect ratio changes, you won't notice them too much and they won't annoy you. What you will notice is that the film envelops you in the world of Gotham City.

Overall personally I like the fact that they filmed some of it in IMAX it adds to the film, rather than taking away, in my opinion. I also loved the film, it is fun and not totally serious, but it's still great nevertheless.

The Dark Knight is outstanding!!I bought the film on triple play so it had the blu ray,special features and the dvd.I loved the blu ray picture quality.Its one of the best blu ray picture qualitys i've ever seen on a blu ray!I am going to give the picture quality an a+.Now on to the story.The joker wants Batman to reveall who he is and if Batman says no he he will kill people of gotham.I don't want to tell you any more of the story or otherwise I will spoil it fore you.The story is nice and easy to understand but I think the film makers should of thought of a more exciting storyline.The actors in the film are fantastic!Especially heath ledger as the joker.He makes the film very very exciting because when he puts on an expresion on his face it makes you wonder what he planning to do.Christian Bale returns as Batman and he does a great job in the film overall the actors in the movie make it feel as if its a true story.So i am going to give the cast an a+.Now on to the special features.There are quite a few.

Special Features:Gotham Uncovered creation of a scene-director christopher nolan creative callaborators.umask the incredible detail and planning behind the film,Including stunt gaging.Filming in IMAX,the new batsuit and bat-pod.Batman tech-the incredible gadgets and tools in HD.Gotham Tonight-6 episodes of gotham cable's premier news program.The galleries-the joker cards,concept art,poster art,production stills,traliers and Tv sports.

Format: DVD
It is not often the case that the sequel is as good as, if not better than the original, but "The Dark Knight." is definitely a worthy successor to "Batman Begins". Words of warning though, pay attention to the certificate! Don't be one of those parents that let their eight-year-old watch this film and is then surprised that their child has nightmares. This is a very dark tale! Heath Ledger's well-deserved posthumous multiple awards, for his portrayal of The Joker, creates memorable and disturbing scenes, suggestive of deeply cruel violence; stealing every scene he is in. Christian Bale, as Batman, takes the story of our hero from triumph to tragedy; supported by excellent performances from Michael Cane and Morgan Freeman amongst others. But, of course, this is much more than intense drama. The special effects are stunning and the action will leave you breathless. The filmmakers have paid attention to every detail of the visuals and soundtrack to make this DVD worth watching many times over to pick up on everything that they achieved. If that is not enough for you, the second disk of features will probably give you all the information you could wish for about the making of the film. This two-disk release is well worth adding to your collection.

Format: Blu-ray
This is a film so good that I don't feel it can be fully taken in on first viewing. This was an issue I found with The Matrix as well. Both films are so loaded with ideas, so complex in the painstakingly loving creation of an alternative universe, that on first viewing it's easy to become overwhelmed and fail to absorb a large chunk of it all. That was my experience at the cinema, and as a result I thought the Dark Knight was just 'pretty good'. On seeing it again on Blu-Ray it's clear that it's actually 'Phenomenal' in every way.
The Batman world has evolved from the first film, as it should in every good sequel. Christian Bale is back and excellent once again, now finding himself battling imitators as well as bad guys. Ex-girlfriend Rachel is now dating hotshot star DA Harvey Dent, played by a tough and likeable Aaron Eckhart, and Heath Ledger truly deserved that Oscar as the Joker. His character must have been worked on for months. He comes across as a completely authentic human being, full of tics, personality and insanity and is utterly captivating when on screen. The script's plot is artfully written and shows off a terrific range of character arcs, stunning Bat technology, and bad guy shenanigans. Bale also gets to wheel out more emotion than before and faces harder choices in his actions. The photography is stunning, glitteringly clear on Blu-Ray and showing the film off to its full potential.
All of the actions taken throughout the film feel like they fit the story properly and service the script, not the other way around which is the case in so many superhero movies. In fact, it's hard to imagine how they came up with something so tightly written.
