The Dark Knight

Here’s a lengthy review of the ‘Dark Knight’ movie.

The author basically says what everyone else has been saying.

I really want to see this movie, but it sounds downright troubling.

Anybody got some feedback for me?

  1. for all of that talk on the review, it wasn’t that gory. the real tension was the psychological/ethical one. the movie definitely made some statements. Heath Ledger was a freak of nature in this movie. It was incredible and dark and thought-provoking.

    definitely not a movie I’d take kids to see (or a lady with an easily seared memory), but still a must-see movie for me. I want to go again. As far as Batman hype goes, it didn’t disappoint.

  2. it was fantastic. i highly suggest it.

  3. Like Focker’s portfolio–strong to very strong. More tension than violence. No sex, language. A couple grisly scenes with the Joker. Touches on a lot of unique themes. Victimhood, altruism in the face of under-appreciation, altruism for self-satisfaction or greater good, human goodness/evil, all that good stuff.

  4. Ladies and gentlemen, Robin Vermillion has commented on my blog.

    I am now free to depart in peace…

  5. we saw it, and i loved it. for a movie. there were some very strong themes, but it’s worth seeing. i like being confronted with that stuff every once in awhile. reminds me not to forget that it’s out there, in some ways. ya know?
