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

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

I order this (through amazon) a couple days ago (December 12, 2011) and just got it today (December 14, 2011) in the mail.
It did NOT come with the cardboard slip cover.

|2 Disc BluRay? Could it not fit on one?||
Honestly, I'd have no trouble believing a good-looking version of this rather long movie would be something they'd want to be (mostly) on its own disc, without including all the features as well. If you get a look at it, you'll have no trouble believing they used as much space as they could. ... Read More
