Few days back only I saw this flick- The Dark Knight directed by Christopher Nolan. Normally I watch movies with my peers, but somehow this time around it was me all alone watching the flick, sitting on the very first row of the multiplex and trust me I have never seen a movie so captivating, and so enthralling to the core.
The best part of the movie is that..it beautifully captures the struggle within human mind. The portrayal of Joker- one the arch nemesis of Batman by heath ledger is top class..he is not devastating yet he is so cruel, and every time you see him on screen your brain starts thinking that “what the heck he gonna do now”..in fact you would love to hate him- such is the powerful portrayal of Heath ledger.
The hair raising sequences of the bat motor and joker chase where Batman strangles the whole trailer is simply amazing.
The role of Harvey dent the attorney is another high point of the movie..how he begins as a good man and ends up giving his life like a villain is superb.
Not only that..the dialogues which the character delivers are also one of the finest one done in any movie..just take a look
The Joker: I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can’t savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.
The Joker: I’m a dog chasing cars. I don’t have plans. I just do things. I’m not a schemer.
The Joker: This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. “If you’re good at something, you never do it for free.”
The Joker: Madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push.
Harvey Dent: The only morality in an amoral world is chance.
and the best one…..
Harvey Dent: You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
and many more…
I can bet that that this time around Heath should surely get posthumous Oscar for his portrayal of Joker.
Of course the constant struggle within Bruce wayne a.k.a The Batman..is another point in movie which makes the whole the special one.
Batman Begins (2005) was the first movie in the series and trust me when I saw the first installment..I was not at all impressed may be because I felt that it was a bit too philosophical. But the new edition has already proved its worth on box office and is going house full even after weeks of release.
I just wanna say that to feel the magic you need to watch it…after all
The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming!
