THE DARK KNIGHT (2008) Film Review:
Danny Kulick and I review Christopher Nolan’s exemplary THE DARK KNIGHT, the second of an intended trilogy of Batman films. Starring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne and Heath Ledger in an Oscar-winning role as The Joker, it’s one of the best comic-adapted films in history and a truly excellent, timeless film.
My review of the spectacular Christopher Nolan film, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, the third in a trilogy of films starring Christian Bale as Batman. Though not as exemplary as its predecessor, THE DARK KNIGHT, this most recent film proves once again that Nolan is the most sophisticated and intelligent blockbuster filmmaker of our day. Epic in scope and beautifully constructed, TDKR crafts a suitably awesome addition in the Dark Knight trilogy, and features excellent performances by newcomers Joseph Gordon Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Anne Hathaway.
