The Dark Knight
Several Months Back When I watched the trailer of The Dark Knight in You Tube,
thought was like “What the Hell " ... In a role where Jack Nicholson played as the joker..
will Heath Ledger fit the bill..., has Christopher Nolan gone bonkers or what.
Similar Responses to the trailer in You tube, or rather several responses similar.
Bingo, Bang on Target, Bull Eyes. Now no one talks about Bruce Wayne, Christopher
Nolan or even Batman. It’s Joker all the way around now. It’s dispiriting to know that Heath Ledger has passed away. That was an Oscar winning performance.
If you haven't had a choice to read one of DC Comics Brilliance, Batman, do read it if you
get a chance then you can understand the brilliance behind the script. This definitely doesn't fall under the genre of comic book turned film category. Instead this has the potential to make the reverse true. The perception of one who has read/haven't read the comic definitely will come into play. Those 2 sects will have different reviews/feel for the movie. Reading a single comic and watching the film is as good as not reading at all. I still remember the Batman Show which comes in DD Metro on Saturday's 6 PM when I was going to school. I never missed it. This was the video snippet of the same.
I always watched this during those days. Great Times!!!!
One of the greatest disappointments in the film is Katie Holmes; she wasn’t there in the movie to play the role of Rachel Dowes. That was a big letdown. Somehow Maggie Gyllenhaal was uninspiring. Alfred was as usual. The film looked like Nolan already had a sketch of ‘The Dark Knight’ before 'Batman Begins'. Looks like he warming himself in Batman Begins. The Real sport was The Dark Knight.

Agreed Dark Knight is good. Too good, you bet!! But to beat God Father, Nah. I won’t agree to it. Can’t agree. God Father is an epic by itself. As I post this blog, Dark knight is leading the list with around 1 lakh votes with 9.4,another 1 lakh vote similar .. Freezeeee...The Dark Knight will sustain the spot where God Father was ruling for decades.
The film begins with the famous Joker Bank Robbery, with all the ingredients for a true
action flick. Then as the movie goes I somehow felt bored for the next 40 - 60 minutes, I felt things were dragging. Whenever the Joker comes, one tend to go to the edge of the seat then sliding slowly to the stretched position, the film made me oscillate like this for the first 40-60 minutes, then the rest of the movie is what you call “Pinni Pedal Eruda Padam”... There is no stopping by. The Biggest plus is the music. The slow reverberating batman theme is purely awesome and adds a thrilling, edge of the seat action feel. This is not a movie based on a graphic novel not a action flick. Like the fusion music, for some reason for the screen play in the film, it gives you a different feel. Spider Man, that's a true comic hero adapted film. This one gives you a completely different experience.
Though it was dragging for me in the initial, when the climax reel was spinning I felt like wont the movie be any longer. Won’t I have a sequel to this. Not sure whether the Nolan plans to have sequels for the Batman Series. It will be interesting to see if can bring up Robin into the frame but then it will become like a true comic adaption but it will be fun anticipating to watch out whether he can turn the same like what he did for 'The Dark Knight'. Apart from the Joker Villian, there are other interesting villains known by Batman Enemies, will be entertaining to see if Nolan can play with those stuff.
