Once digested the introduction to the world of the Caped Crusader in Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan is an attack on the enemy’s iconic Batman : the Joker. Maintaining the ingredients that have worked well in the first installment of what should be the final in a trilogy, the feature film made to evolve some of the characters in an intelligent way as that of James Gordon, always excellent played by Gary Oldman in great shape, and it introduces a Joker completely barred, ultra-violent, and that the interpreter to the deadly fate, Heath Leadger, will be marked without a doubt the spirits by erasing memories version yet already very relevant to Jack Nicholson. Here, the less cabot and more psychopath, the Joker is clearly scary, even in his make-up far more… animal.
The film’s editing is even more readable than the previous with less ellipses, brutal, despite still a few weaknesses in the combat scenes. However, the lengths of the first game find themselves again in the second part of the film, which introduces a second villain in the person of Two-Face, which is unfortunately a bit bland after a Wild and terrifying. The interpretation of the actor remains, however, is worthwhile, especially in comparison to that of Tommy Lee Jones in the opus of Joel Schumacher… The general atmosphere of the film treated fairly “polar” by the producer, nevertheless, remains good-natured.
Excellent film in itself and without any doubt, a reference in the field of film super-heroic, The Dark Knight – The Dark Knight reminds those who have forgotten that a good villain often makes a good story.
The whole movie is excellent but we may, however, reproach him with a damaging lack of balance. The weight of the about the film on the fight against crime and the dark side and taciturn of the vigilant that can be Batman (still brilliantly played by Christian Bale) eclipse a bit on the heroic side, except maybe in the conclusion of the film. Similarly, the two enemies featured in the movie simply have not the same weight dramatic while their services are in the two quality cases : we note that the second part is more longuette because of it. It is without doubt the only real defect in which the film may suffer, but it is not all the same not a trivial matter.
Excellent film in itself and without any doubt, a reference in the field of film super-heroic, The Dark Knight – The Dark Knight reminds those who have forgotten that a good villain often makes a good story. However, despite its numerous qualities, the high quality does not have throughout the film and goes down sometimes to a level more “normal” which is a little disappointing and slow process at times. But it is a bit of a paradox of gourmet to this overall level of quality…
