Movie Review : The Dark Night

I rate this movie 10/10. I really like the the movie more than I liked the Iron Man film. From start until the end of the film it is full of action and suspense. Joker is really hard to catch. The Dark Knight manages to exceed expectation with a villain so maniacal, his desire for destruction begins to make sense to the point you understand his desire for all out anarchy while you are cheering for the opposition in a war that basically boils down to one side against individual terrorism. The film presents a character so destructive and without a care for those landing in his path of decimation that you are left to your own devices. Love him. Hate him. Hate to love him or love to hate him, director Christopher Nolan has guided an actor into a dark realm not often realized. The Joker finds his place alongside villains that go by the name of Hannibal, Scarface and John Doe himself.

This sequel does not let down the first movie. If anything it surpasses it. Heath Ledger offers a magnificent performance in his last movie. He defintely deserved the oscar that he won for his performance. This is some psychological stuff.
