A classic for our time,
This review is from: The Dark Knight (Two Disc Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)Christopher Nolan has given us what we always wanted, This icon of a movie blew me away, if you think it was too long, sorry, I disagree, I was hooked from opening to closing credits, Nolan continues his exploration and expansion of the batman character, and does so with devestatingly good effect, Heath Ledger (RIP) really gave his all for this and it is a crowning achievement for what would be his last full involvement in a movie.
The main point for me though was humanity( ferry scene) and how both citizen and criminal alike did not bow to the extreme pressure they were put under, and that they were willing to go the distance against the odds, so many lessons here for people to learn from.
Christian Bale's Batman also taking the brunt of what happens shows how Batman is capable of being the hero people want, whether or not it is good for his image, blah blah image!! he does it for the people of gotham,
On a final note stand up all involved with this film, and take a bow, you have earned it
