Dark Knight Rationale

Improved Essays
The Dark Knight was the second of a trilogy of the Batman movie series directed by Christopher Nolan. The movie promise to be one to be remember and as others might say an iconic movie for what superheroes and/or future Batman movies should be. The Dark Knight movie was released in July 2008, and for the comic book/superheroes fans that have not seen it I can only tell you one thing: go see it. It was produced by the well-known Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. who are known for producing movies that have earned over 100 million dollars in revenue. This movie is full of action, crime, and drama leaving its audience at the edge of the seats wanting more.

It was hard to understand and it seems like he worked too hard for it and at the end it did not payed up for him. Heath Ledger on the other hand did his best work on that movie. The way he did his makeup, custom and the way he behave as the joker was expended and making the character one to remember. As you might already know, the drama of the movie takes place in the city of Gotham and as you see the movie you will have to be extra vigilant due to the fact that there are too many things happening at once. The action scenes are to die for due to how realistic they were and the sound that accompanies them will have you at the end of your seats wanting form more. The main plot is how the Joker can ridicule everyone that steps on his way specially Batman which he tries to uncover on multiple occasions. It amazes me the psychology used by the Joker to keep me on the edge of my seat and constantly asking myself how he really got those scars. It was unfortunate to see how the co-star took his life due to the toll the role had on him, however it was a masterpiece from beginning to end.

The Dark Knight is tremendous blockbuster entertainment: everything you could hope for and then some. It is not perfect but then, like its hero, like his late co-star, and as Nolan’s tribute so ably observes, nobody is. I would recommend people to watch and enjoy this masterpiece of a movie and despite the tragedy, I hope you enjoy all the characters and story behind

    Many people can say that they have fallen in love—just as Batman does. And, throughout their lives, all people are faced with some type of moral dilemma, without any obvious or absolute right choice—just as Batman does. The character the audience relates to does not even need to be a good character either. If done correctly, people should be able to relate to any protagonist. Roger Ebert writes about The Godfather, what is referred to by many as one of the greatest films of all time, that the audience “sympathize[s] with characters who are essentially evil”, because the film forces them “to consider the Mafia entirely on its own terms; in fact, “Don Vito Corleone…emerges as a sympathetic and even admirable character”.…

    He manages, however, to remain obnoxious for most of the film, despite all the awful things that happen to him, chiefly because he instigates most of them, by being so spoiled. The two characters artfully complement each other, with their chemistry being one of the film's biggest assets. Technically, "Rough Cut" is a true masterpiece, both in cinematography and in editing, with some very impressive shots and the artful way of which the film shootings are depicted. The final battle between the two protagonists is definitely the most technically accomplished, in all of its aspects. Overall, "Rough Cut" is a true…

    Which hurt the film in trying to show how important these decisions were. Lastly, for those who like the seemingly invincible Batman from the comics or other adaptations will find that Batman is beaten to easily by things such as dogs, car crashes and falling from heights. Whereas, any other time he comes out of situations that seem impossible to survive only to fall victim to the former, leads the view to question Batman…

    Because Benedict is painted as the villain, I find myself cheering for Ocean in spite of that fact that he is the thief, wishing for him to win back the girl of his dreams. The movie succeeds in defying the “hero and villain” archetypes and pulls the viewer into the story in an unexpected way. While Ocean may be a thief, he is charismatic, caring for those he loves, and protective of the ones close to him. On the other hand, Terry Benedict is cold, close-minded, and seems cruel - even though he is the one being stolen from. With each character having a unique talent that they contribute to the heist, it gives them an individuality and a different reason to love each one.…

    I found myself rooting for them in many of the suspenseful scenes. I thought these two acted their parts very well and whenever they were not side by side my heart ached for them. Something no one knows is that James Wan used a real actor as the crooked man. I liked that he did this because as people start to find this out and watch the movie again they will watch for the crooked man and notice that he is a real actor. I also like it for the simple fact that the actor he chose, Javier Botet, can do such weird things with his…

    Lee Pace, the actor of Ronan, is a talented actor with lots of potential. But, all that potential gets thrown away when you can’t even recognize him. All of the makeup on Pace’s face ruins his performance, and takes away from the otherwise great movie. But, with Loki, we see barely any makeup, which allows us to see the great performance from Tom Hiddleston. We get to see all of the smug actions from Loki in fantastic fashion, which allows Loki to be so…

    The other notable here is Googy Gress playing the villain of the piece Foster Cotton. Gress doesn’t actually fight the preposterous nature of the story, he dives in head first, and benefits from it. That’s the problem with the other actors who NIGHTMARE CODE has an original and somewhat refreshing story, but lacks a sense of fear or tension because of the filmmaking choices made. It’s a subpar debut for director Mark Netter, but there’s still promise in the enticing stories he could bring to the…
