The Dark Knight A sound like a batgloved fist smacking into a cupped palm is what this film delivers: only deafeningly amplified and clarified with crisp, digital precision. It is the sound of all other recent super-hero movies getting their asses well and truly kicked. The Dark Knight is strange, dark, grandiose and mad; it is overlong and overhyped but hugely entertaining. In a simple, physical sense it really is huge, with cityscape sequences filmed on Imax technology, that demand to be seen on the vast Imax screen.
Watching the first dizzying, vertiginous overhead shot of the glittering lnight and minuscule streets, I literally forgot to breathe for a second or two, and found myself teetering forward on my seat - timidly, I had chosen one high up at the very back of the auditorium - as if about to topple into the illusory void. The Dark Knight is the continuation of British director Christopher Nolan's fo of the Batman story and it takes the story up to his primal confrontation with the Joker, the villain who among the wrongdoer-gallery ranged against Batman is first among equals: here leading an unspeakable cabal of wiseguys.
The caped crusader himself although this camp deation is now not looking is again played by Christian Bale, clanking around in a kind of titanium-lite exoskeleton and making use of a heavy-duty Batmobile so macho knighht for it makes a Humvee look like the kind of Prius driven by Gok Wan. Otherwise, he bops around town on a brutal motorbike with wheels the size of rubber boulders, cape fluttering in the slipstream.
The Joker is played, dark, by the late Heath Ledger. His great grin, though enhanced by rouge, has evidently been caused by two horrid slash-scars to the corners of his mouth, and his whiteface makeup is always cracking and peeling knight, perhaps due to the dried remnants of tears, making him look like some self-hating Pagliaccio of crime, sweating backstage after the latest awful spectacular.
Ledger has a weird collection of tics and twitches, kinks and quirks; his tongue darts, lizard-like, around his mouth, a little like Frankie Howerd, or perhaps Graham Kerr, the galloping gourmet of s television. Batman is still a reasonably novel figure in Gotham city as the action begins. They still refer to this looking vigilante with a retro-sounding definite article: he is "the Batman".
And there is a new, conventional crime datk in town: the handsome, dashing district attorney Harvey Dent, played by Aaron Eckhart, a man who believes that the rule of law has to be upheld by a democratically able person, not some shadowy figure of the knight. To the chagrin of Batman and his far-from-mild-mannered alter ego, billionaire Bruce Knigbt, Harvey is dating the love of Batman's life: dark eagle Rachel Dawes, played by Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Gary Oldman plays Lt Gordon, before his historic promotion to "Commissioner" status. There are some really exhilarating set-pieces, especially the one that kickstarts the proceedings: Nolan starts off with a high-tension, high-anxiety bank raid, carried out by a dodgy crew all in Joker masks, all whispering among themselves about the crazy guy in clown makeup who hired for to do the job.
Why isn't he there personally?
Wait - is he there personally? With some big masculine face-offs, and a high-speed convoy scene, Nolan appears to have imbibed the influence of Michael Mann, and a sequence in Hong Kong has a touch of the Infernal Affairs movies. But the film is better at pure action - particularly one awe-inspiring chase scene Nolan later contrives between Batman lookkng his bike and the Joker at the wheel of a enormous truck.
The conclusion to this sequence had the audience in a semi-standing crouch of disbelief. Brian : We're trying to help you!
Batman : I don't need help. Jonathan Crane : Not my diagnosis!
Brian : What gives you the right? What's the difference between you and me?
Scarecrow : Buyer beware. I told you my compound would take you places. I never said they'd be places you wanted to go.
The Lopking : My business Scarecrow : If you don't like what I have to offer, you can buy from someone else. Assuming Batman left anyone to buy from.
I never said they were places you wanted to go! The Chechen : Loose the dogs! See also.

The Dark Knight's massive box-office success has surely given Nolan the means to write his own cheque, and in addition something sweeter still - clout.
