Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It's finally here! Three years since Batman Begins, two years since we first heard about casting, and now one year since the first trailer. The Dark Knight is finally upon us! Does it live up to all of your hype and expectations? Were you surprised by its length and immense story? How was the late Heath Ledger as the Joker - the best villain or the worst villain you've seen? Has Christopher Nolan created a masterpiece on the level of The Godfather II or instead just a lengthy and boring mess? The Dark Knight is easily the most buzz about movie this year and now the full experience is upon us which means it's time to let it at all out. Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of The Dark Knight.
To fuel the fire, I absolutely loved this movie. I've seen it twice now and after watching it the second time, I can officially confirm that it is an epic and incredible masterpiece. Nolan has shown us that there are no rules in Hollywood and that he can make a comic book movie that's vastly better than the first - an amazing feat considering that one was already brilliant. The Dark Knight may truly be the best superhero movie ever made and is undoubtedly the best superhero sequel ever made. Not only is Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker flawless and unquestionably deserving of an Oscar, but the story, the visual effects, the music, the filmmaking, every last element of this masterpiece absolutely stunning - nothing else has ever come this close to perfection! The Dark Knight is, hands down, a phenomenal film!
What did you think of The Dark Knight? Nolan's masterpiece or nothing amazing?
