Movie Review: The Dark Knight
I sort of feel bad because the main reason I watched it was because Telkontar expressed a profound fondness for the movie. OTOH, this isn’t the first movie we’ve had different opinions on.
Best Part: The first 45 minutes. Some pleasant, well-orchestrated tension and violence.
Biggest Question: How did anyone accomplish any of the things they did? Why were all the key moments in the movie hidden in the scene breaks? What, actually, was the main conflict? (Admittedly, yes, that’s three questions.)
Too Long By: 75 minutes. If it had ended at the 1:20 mark, I probably would’ve liked it. No such luck.
Additional Gripe: There were no rules in this movie-world, which means that anything could happen — and when anything can happen, nothing matters.
Joker’s a winner
Â Over and over again:
Moral quandaries ho!
Final Score: 4/10, including a full point docked for making me sit through Heath Ledger licking his lips for at least 60 minutes of the run-time — between that, the Batman-voice, and the non-stop soliloquies, I got no-joke nauseous.
