The Dark Knight


Christopher Nolan

Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth
Heath Ledger as The Joker
Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent/Two Face

The sequel to the successful Batman Begins movie promises even more action and suspense.

After the disappearance of Dr. Jonathan Crane (Scarecrow), Batman continues his efforts to purge Gotham City of crime and corruption with Lt. James Gordon and newly appointed District Attorney Harvey Dent. While their partnership proves to be effective, they soon find themselves prey to a new reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker.

Heath Ledger comes off with a superb performance as the Dark Knight's chief arch-enemy. His reprisal of the role earlier played by Jack Nicholson proves he is a worthy successor to the throne. The Dark Knight is also the last movie where we get to see Heath Ledger, after his untimely demise earlier this year.
