is simply fuckeeennnn’ awesome! I’m loving Heath Ledger moooorrreee! The movie lasts about 2 and a half hours and I think it’s still not enough.
The story started as Joker (Heath Ledger) distracted Gotham’s stability. On that moment, Batman (Christian Bale) is being hated by the people in Gotham and Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) was being the District Attorney. Dent had to deal with mobs and allied with Batman and Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman). He was also dating Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gylenhall), which made the situation “warmer” between Batman and him.
The effects are, as usual, stunning–just like other superhero movies. The mood is really, really dark, just like Batman movies’ character when Michael Keaton took the role. The gadgets were beautiful as well, from Batmobile, Batpod, his “usual” Lamborghini, every single gadget in the movie is just great.
The dialogue and scenes, especially the ones with Joker in it, are simply beautiful. You must let your eyes “leave” the screen because the movie is just too good to be missed! I’m really happy to watch it on the premiere
Acting scores? Heath Ledger is the best in this movie. He played his role very well, far ahead beyond Jack Nicholson’s acting back then. He definitely made people think that Joker is a psycho (and cool at the same time) supervillain, who kills people and does bad things only because he wants to. He is insane, freak, crazy, mad, but he’s greeeat! His voice makes it even better. The dialogues between him and his soon-to-be victims, the way he did (awful) things from mass-murdering, video-capturing until blowing a hospital down.. Geez!
Christian Bale did well too, but he was not as fantastic as Ledger. Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, and Maggie Gylenhall are good actors, though they didn’t steal my attention. Aaron Eckhart from No Reservations was also stunning. Ah yep, forgot to tell you, not only Joker, but Two-Face–the other supervillain in the movie–is also sweeeettt!
The ending was like, “uhmmmm…”, but I’ve gone through 2 or 3 climaxes watching this movie. Great movie, much much much beyond my euphoria after I watched Transformers. Well done, Christopher Nolan!
