Musing Review: The Dark Knight
I think it’s easy to say that The Dark Knight will be the most successful film this summer, and it earns all the praise it’s received…
Heath Ledger’s Joker is absolutely horrifying, and it’s a shame he isn’t around to see his finished product. Ledger’s Jo ker makes Jack Nicholson’s look like a Saturday morning cartoon…..there’s no comparison anymore. This is how the Joker was meant to be seen.
Overall, this had a different feel from Batman Begins, and that’s OK. It’s a sequel…there’s no origin story here.
At just over 2.5 hrs, it did seem like there were some opportunities to shave the run-time a little….but, the extra time leaves you looking forward to the next scene that has the Joker in it…..
And I just saw this on another site, and have to say, once you see this, you’ll absolutely never forget the Joker’s magic trick….
Can’t wait to see this in IMAX! After thinking over it all day, I’m starting to realize how epic, amazing, awesome and fun this movie was to experience.
Now, if if manages to break Spidey 3’s record at the box-office, I’ll be one happy camper…BustedTees would totally have to make a shirt for that occasion, and I’d buy it, no questions asked.
