Dark Knight, Joker, Nemesis, Two-Face





Today, I was so excited because I was finally going to catch the well-rated, well-promoted, and well-produced movie, Batman:Dark Knight. If you have visited my blog earlier, you might noticed that my blog's picture is the movie's poster. After so many days, hours, minutes, seconds, I could watch the movie with my friends, it was something that I was looking forward to.


To be honest, I really like the action, but, the storyline was a bit dull. Maybe due to the over-rated compliments from most people, we really had high hope. We expected more. The story begins with the robbery of a bank by the Joker. It was a genius plan. After that, the movie introduced a white knight who was going to save the corrupted Gotham City, Harvey Dent by Aaron Eckhart . Of course, don't we forget the leading female actress, Rachael Dawes by Maggie Gyllenhaal. Harvey and Rachael were lovers in the movie, proving that batman is a curse to Bruce Wayne. Last but not least, our biggest villain - Joker by the late Heath Ledger.




Actually, in the movie, there was compassion, romance, love, loneliness,... Everything was in the movie. But, the timing of the movie was just not right. The showdown between the batman and his nemesis-Joker was not action-packed enough. Even though the explosions were amazing, I couldn't help to feel sleepy towards the end of the movie which too much dialogues were involved. Nonetheless, this was a must-watch movie. I had to admit that Joker quite stole the show from batman.


In this movie, I had 2 favourite scences. Well , to my surprise, they were not those violent scences. The first scence was when the batman had to choose between Rachael and Harvey. To save Gotham, guess who he had chosen. The second scence was when the people from two ships had to decide their own fates. At the end, the consciences inside the people had shown that there is still hope. Well, I can't be too specific, it would only spoil the fun. Why so serious?



In the end, the dark knight will always be the dark knight. But, who is going to be the two-face. Want to find out? Check out the movie by yourself again.



P.S : The movie is about 2 and a half hours long. Brace yourself for this extravagant movie.

Not good. It's sci fiction. Waste of time watching. You should watch berita terkini Tv3, CNN, Bloomberg, etc to know what's currently going on around the country.
