The Dark Knight movie poster

The Dark Knight, which is part of Christopher Nolan's Batman film series is a follow-up to the action-hit Batman Begins (2005). Christian Bale reprises the role of the caped crusader - Batman.

The film focuses on Batman's fight against a new villain, a psychopathic criminal named Joker (Heath Ledger), who is the mastermind of numerous organized crimes in Gotham City.

With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to eliminate and dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. Their partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as the Joker.

Reviews & Ratings:
"Nolan has shown a new way to tell a superhero story, and it may turn out to be the only way to tell a story about heroes in this troublingly amoral time. We may want our white knights, but it's the dark knight that we need."
~ Katey Rich of CinemaBlend

I never realized that they don't use Batman in this title for the first time until you brought it up. That's kind of strange. Check out my site if you're interested in tv show info and where to find free tv shows online:

This is the best Batman movie I ever seen. Joker is the best. Too bad he died.

I have a problem taking Bale seriously. I just cant get excited about any of his Batman movies because as soon as he talks as Batman I start laughing, that voice is terribly cheesy, and after Cartman openly mocked it on South Park its all i can think about.
