  • The Dark Knight: Film Analysis

    clock finally hits midnight, neither have exploded, and the Joker 's permanent smile is a little smaller. Additionally, the Joker succeeds in turning Harvey Dent, the city 's "white knight" into a vengeful, punishing villain known as Two Face. Dent is completely destroyed by the murder of his soon-to-be wife and now decides to be the agent of justice. He begins by going after those in the police department, then later the mob leader who hired the Joker. In these cases, he decides their fate by a coin toss. Some are allowed to live while others are not. Dent justifies this method of giving out justice by arguing that chance is the only thing that is fair. In his mind, it was not fair for him to have been the one who lost everything when Rachel died. Chance gives a solution to Dent, an objective, emotionally-ignorant means of justice. In his last moments, Two Face decides to make Commissioner Gordon experience what he experienced with Rachel. He makes Gordon tell his son that "everything is going to be alright", knowing very well that it was not. To Dent, this is fair and just. He then tosses his coin and, right as he is about to murder Gordon 's son, the Batman pushes him over the edge, ending the reign of terror. At the end of the movie, Batman faces the ultimate question of justice. Dent was Gotham 's hope for a crime-ridden city. If the public knew how he turned, all that had been achieved would be destroyed. Batman makes the choice that no one else could, to take the…

    Utterson surpasses Victorian expectations, both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde fall flat. In fact, between the two of them, they fail in nearly every regard to obtain normalcy. Dr. Jekyll fails to uphold the “well tried maxim” that is “Heaven helps those who help themselves” (Smiles 33) by being “sold a slave to [his] original evil” (Stevenson 78).
