I was veyr surprised and happy with the amount of screentime Two Face got. That being said though cant see him returning. Yes, hes and interesting character, but the way Nolan makes is a vigilante like Batman whose killing for the right reasons. I cant see him being a main villain, and i cant see him "miracaulosly living"
I finally caught the movie, and while I liked it, I do have problems with it.
The Joker's part, as it was written, is archetypal. He's presented as an agent of chaos, and someone of pure evil, and someone cartoonish and black-and-white.
This contrasts, rather obviously, with Ledger's highly detailed and nuanced performance. We know that there is more behind the makeup and the motivation, but the movie never touches it (and the idea of saving it all for a supposed sequel is somewhat galling).
And it ran a little long, and I'm sure the DVD release will be even longer. It's still a good movie, and Ledger provides a bravura, screen catching performance the likes of which we rarely see any longer.
I'm going to see it again Sunday probably and I just bought the movie soundtrack ! This was definatly one of the most entertaining movie's I have seen .
Question, does anyone know which scenes were filmed in the Pinewood Studios in England? They don't say which scenes were filmed there on Pinewood's website, but just mention that they used S Stage for parts of the movie.
I like the Dark Knight much better than Batman Begins after seeing that one again. I think I had a problem with how Gotham City was depicted in the first. That elevated train... not physically possible. I couldn't stand it. And then there was that one bit player who works in the water main control tower.. what's his name? Oh yeah.. MR. EXPOSITION. His delivery of all the pipes about to blow was comical and really distracting.
And haha.. that is all I didn't like about the first. Oh and also young Bruce Wayne looks more like Josh Hartnet than Christian Bale. I mean come on... we've seen what young Christian Bale looks like! Cast someone that looks like him! They cast his dad very well!
And after several listens to the score for Dark Knight, there are some hightlights but nothing ever comes close to some of the iconic tracks of the first.
I just got back from my trip to Calgary. I saw Dark Knight there on the IMAX screen - Awesome! That's all I can say - Awesome!
The only gripe I had with the movie was Scarecrow's part, it was too short and completely unnecessary. It would've been better if his role was expanded in the main story better. Either have him in there in a longer role or not at all.
I definitely will go see it again.
I didn't stay until the end of the credits. Was there any mini scene? Did Superman show up and say they are forming the Justice League?
