In his last completed role before his tragic death, Ledger is fantastic as the Joker, a volcanic, truly frightening force of evil. And he sets the tone of the movie: the world is a dark, dangerous place where there are no easy choices. Eckhart and Oldman also shine, but as good as Bale is, his character turns out rather bland in comparison (not uncommon for heroes facing more colorful villains). Director-cowriter Christopher Nolan (Memento) follows his critically acclaimed Batman Begins with an even better sequel that sets itself apart from notable superhero movies like Spider-Man 2 and Iron Man because of its sheer emotional impact and striking sense of realism--there are no suspension-of-disbelief superpowers here. At 152 minutes, it's a shade too long, and it's much too intense for kids. But for most movie fans--and not just superhero fans--The Dark Knight is a film for the ages. --David Horiuchi
On the DVD
Unlike the Blu-ray disc, The Dark Knight on DVD is completely in 2.40:1 aspect ratio. You can, however, watch the six IMAX scenes separately. Also on disc 2 are "Gotham Uncovered: The Creation of a Scene," which is behind-the-scenes footage about the Bat suit, the Bat pod, and the music; eight-minute segments of Gotham Central, a faux-news program that gives some background to events in the movie; plus a variety of trailers, poster art, and more. Last, there's a digital copy of the film compatible with iTunes and Windows Media (download code expires 12/9/09). --David Horiuchi
love this movie! this is one of my favorite movies! highly recommend!Published 2 days ago by Jennifer L. Eccles
The absolute best Batman movie, in my opinion. Christian Bale's death was a terrible loss, even more so because the movie ends with a hint of a sequel.Published 2 days ago by RITMISProf

I'm a huge fan of this movie but I'm gonna review the Blu-ray itself.
This is one of those near-instant play blu-rays. The movie will start within 1 minute of it loaded. Read more
Excellent opening sequence, and of course, Heath's performance crackles with insanity. Batman is a complex hero that needs enormous talent and darkness to pull off. Read morePublished 9 days ago by mr. books

|Can it be real that nobody in the other ship chose to blow up the other...||
So money = human life? Your argument doesn't apply because it doesn't relate to people dying.

|For those who bought TDK for $8.99...or recently from Amazon ONLY||
I came to ask the same question.
I looked around and Walmart.com is also selling it for $8.96. The prices aren't always the same in-store and they won't match their own website (?), but you could always take a look if you're near a store. Or you could print out Walmart's price and do a price... Read More

|Did the Joker Know Batman's True Identity?||
No the joker doesn't know who he is. He is not one of Ras's men either. The"I thought you were Dent the way you through yourself at her" means nothing. It means that he would have literally thought that Dent was the real batman, but he was wrong.
Also, the joker just knew that Coleman... Read More
