One of Nolan's masterpieces, turned a superhero story into a dark, deep film.
Possibly the best Batman film to date. Heath Ledger as The Joker was utterly chilling.

Breathless plotting and cartoony action undercuts tone. Ledger's not overrated, though.

Order or Chaos? TDK asks many questions without giving any answers - 100% worth watching

"ground breaking achievement in cinema history"
A great movie by a great director. This movie could not have been any greater than it is.
to many viewings make the giant plot problems to obvious. Heath Ledger is Trancendent
sturdy filmwork supports knockout acting in a Gotham that feels sickeningly alive. 10/10.

Gripping and challenging. Dark, intense, even scary at times. Top-notch.
The Dark Knight is a 2008 superhero film directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, the film is part of Nolan's Batman film series and a sequel to 2005's Batman Begins. Christian Bale reprises the lead role. The film follows Bruce Wayne/Batman (Bale), District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Assistant D.A. Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal), and Police Commissioner James Gordon (Gary Oldman) and their struggles and journey in combating the new rising threat of a criminal calling himself the "Joker" (Heath Ledger).
Nolan's inspiration for the film was the Joker's comic book debut in 1940, and the 1996 series The Long Halloween, which retold Two-Face's origin. The Dark Knight was filmed primarily in Chicago, as well as in several other locations in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Hong Kong. Nolan used an IMAX camera to film some sequences, including the Joker's first appearance in the film.
