Where to begin...where to begin? This movie (Dark Knight) rocked the hizzau!!! I just got home, so I am still reeling from it's awesomeness...I'm diving in, but as usual, any spoilers will be typed in white text. Highlight if you want to know...
First up...Heath Ledger. I truly am speechless. The most AMAZING performance I have seen all year! Truly, truly brilliant. When he looked across the table at Batman and said "You complete me." I. JUST. DIED! If he were to win a best supporting actor nod, it would be well deserved indeed!
Next...Aaron Eckhardt. Do guys get any hotter? I saw him running on the lakefront last summer while he was filming. I kid you not...I just wanted to lick his face:P I knew he was going to turn into Two Face by the end of this movie, and I still hoped against all hope that he wouldn't. I loved him! Wow, did the sh*t have to hit the fan in order for him to go bad! I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY KILLED RACHEL DAWES!!! They killed Rachel Dawes!!!
Christian Bale...*sigh* He is so dreamy is almost hurts. I know he is going through some family troubles, but in his defense...I read his Mom was a circus clown? I think if your Mom is a clown, you have the right to family issues. He is the best Batman ever! The raspy voice really didn't bother me. Seriously what else can I say? Just too hot!Lastly, I sooooo love Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine in their supporting roles. They are so spot on. Not that I would expect anything less from them. When the guy shows up in Morgan F. office and says he figured out who Batman is and tries to blackmail him. Morgan F.'s response was priceless! ".....Well good luck with that." Loved it!I about died when they killed Commissioner Gordon! Then I about died when he came back! I loooove Gary Oldman. He is so fabulous, and I so buy him as C. Gordon. He was the uber actor of the eighties (remember him as Dracula?) and then he kind of vanished. I was so glad to see him in this role:)
They actually flipped an eighteen wheeler on Lasalle St.! That was not computer graphics. Soooo cool! Can I say that Chicago is Gotham City? What a great city...and I am not being biased here;) Tons of action...all over the city. The movie just never lets up.
Just go see it. Pay the babysitter and go. It is well worth the price of admission...now go!
