The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight ★★★★★

It's simple, We kill the Batman, Just when you think Christopher Nolan couldn't top Batman Begins, He drops a masterpeice and releases The Dark Knight, Just 3 years later, It's rightly lauded as one of the best comic book movies of all time, And it's hard to argue against that, To think every one was baffled when Heath Ledger was cast, As the iconic Batman villain The Joker, Boy did they choke on their words, He rightly won a best supporting actor Oscar, For his mesmerising take on The Joker, God rest his soul, Just think how good the follow up would've been, The opening scene is one of the best of all time, And perfectly sets the tone for what's to come, Aron Eckhart brilliant as Harvey Dent, Maggie Gyllenhaal as a recast Rachel Dawes is an improvement on Katie Holmes take, It's a shame Cillian Murphy is just a bit part this time, But that's my only real grumble with the film, Hans Zimmers score is as always top notch, The jump scare gets me every time, I'm not afraid to admit that 😅, The scene in China is one of many highlights for me, A film with many, An incredible work of art, Thankyou Christopher Nolan
