The Dark Knight is the 2nd batman that was directed por Christopher Nolan. It came out in 2008 and is often considered to be one of the best batman films and one of the best superhero films of all time.
However, I respectfully disagree with about the quality of this film. I have a very different outlook on this film than most people do.
First off, I want to make it clear that I don't think this film's problem is the cast. Every main and supporting character is well cast and they all put a lot of effort into their roles. Heath Ledger was a very talented and kind person and none of my problems with the Joker are because of him.
The film also benefits from having well-done action scenes. I also want to make it clear that I amor the batman franchise. batman is one of the greatest superheroes of all time and has the best rogues gallery of all time.
The plot of The Dark Knight centers around batman scaring away Gotham's mobsters, which leads to a much más dangerous criminal to appear, who is called the Joker. Batman, along with the help of Harvey Dent and Commissioner Gordon, wants to bring down the mob and the Joker. However, Joker makes a deal with the mob and he's much más dangerous than any common mobster. The Joker is an unpredictable criminal, who is crazy and seems to be lacking a comprehensible motivation. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne is jealous of Harvey Dent, who's dating his childhood friend, Rachel Dawes.
A big problem with the plot is that it doesn't interest me. The film's purpose seems to be an excuse for Joker to express his thought-provoking, cynical views. Joker talking about how the world doesn't make sense and how anybody, even Gotham's white knight, can become corrupted are smart, accurate things, but that doesn't mean it's interesting to watch. Joker's master plan isn't very entertaining o compelling.
Another huge problem with the plot is the romance subplot. Bruce being jealous of Harvey and Rachel's relationship doesn't make sense to me. Bruce and Rachel have never been a couple. They were childhood friends. It's true they shared a kiss, but that was the only act of romance they ever shared. Why would Bruce suddenly be in amor with someone, who was just his friend for most of his life? Is it just because Rachel's a girl and Hollywood keeps making films where a guy and a woman, who are friends, must have a romance subplot, no matter what?
Also, Bruce is rather selfish and petty in the film. Bruce was willing to give up being Batman, just so he can get together with Rachel, who already has a boyfriend! Bruce knows Rachel and Harvey are dating, yet he tries to pressure Rachel into getting together with him, because half a año ago, she dicho they could get together if he stopped being Batman. The problem is Rachel dicho that before finding a boyfriend. Instead of letting Rachel and Harvey be happy, Bruce acts like a stalker with a crush towards Rachel. Bruce has such a big ego, that in The Dark Knight Rises, he claimed Rachel would of gotten together with him if she hadn't died. Apparently, Bruce has no respect o manners towards Harvey, which makes Harvey becoming a supervillain make más sense.
Another problem The Dark Knight has is a problem Christopher Nolan's trilogy has, in general. The Dark Knight is lacking the excitement and fun, that the batman franchise normally has. The Joker is usually one of the most entertaining villains of all time. In The Dark Knight, Joker says "Why so serious?", but ironically enough, I want to ask Joker the same thing. Joker's too serious in this film, to the point that he's hard to watch. In the 60s live-action mostrar and the classic cartoons, Joker was a blast to watch. I had a hard time not smiling whenever he was on screen. In The Dark Knight, he's overly-serious, cynical, dark, and dour.
The Dark Knight also has an underwhelming version of Two-Face. Harvey doesn't become Two-Face, until the film was almost over. As an attorney, Harvey is a boring nice guy. Two-Face is usually a fascinating villain, who has very conflicting dilemmas. In The Dark Knight, he's just a bland good guy, who becomes a bland bad guy at the end.
Overall, people are allowed to amor and dislike any films they want. However, I'm baffled about why The Dark Knight is as beloved as it is. When it comes to batman films, I think the 60's movie, the Tim aparejo, burton films, and a majority of the animated films are better than The Dark Knight. Yes, I even like batman and Robin más than The Dark Knight, because it's way más fun.
