Dark Knight reviewsThe release of the Dark knight to the platform is making film reviewers crave for more space to tell away their views about the latest movie. Dark night is an electrifying stunt that involves a demented villain, a troublesome thug and an everyday writing device over in a flash as incarnated by the late Heath Ledger. The movie is crowded with actors and other stuff like a love triangle, a second super villain, angry mobsters, doomed clowns, an intricate financial rip-off, a side trip to Hong Kong, and, of course, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling, sea-to-shining-sea pyro-automotive mayhem.

The Dark Knight” is an ambitious venture by Director Christopher Nolan who contemplates on roaring flames and flying rubble as if he just realized they exist just the other day. The movies is onset with Batman being sick is in ill repute among the citizens of Gotham, who now revile him as an out-of-control vigilante. Meanwhile, the municipal criminal element, led by Salvatore Maroni (Eric Roberts, an even less-likely Italian mob boss than Tom Wilkinson was in the last picture), has problems of its own: Somebody has hovered millions in ill-gotten gains out of the syndicate’s secret bank accounts. Then there’s the crusading new district attorney, Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), a straight arrow who’s just as committed to thug-busting as Batman is, but equally opposed to the hooded crime-fighter’s corner-cutting butt-kickery. Batman, for his part, welcomes Dent’s arrival on the scene — what with the entire burgher bad-mouthing lately, he’s seriously considering retirement. On the other hand, Bruce Wayne, the man hidden beneath those bat ears, can’t help noticing that Harvey is also making moves on the girl of his dreams, Assistant DA Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal in for Katie Holmes, thank you, God).

The Dark Knight” has a knack for Dent sufferings which constitute of a gruesome injury that leaves half of his face looking like something you might find hanging from a hook in a meat locker. Ledger takes over the movie with his performance as the Joker. It glimmers with unexpected tones and edges, making the movie are thick and operatic. The character has a flaw; he’s supposed to be an improvisational maniac with murderous schemes, one involving two ferries filled with terrified passengers. Ledger plays him as a wild card. Ledgers make it through an original appearance as a scary and funny and completely convincing fellas as supposed. This is the epitome of the debutant Dark knights.
