Wow, how dark is the new Batman film!
Serena and I got time out to go to the cinema at the weekend and nipped off to a matinee performance of The Dark Knight.
What a different film. I almost feel like I didn't enjoy it as it is so bleak!
Visually the film is stunning and the audio also rocked our socks off (if anything the cinema had turned it up to 11)!
I can't really fault a single actor either, but for me Aaron Eckhart stood out as Harvey Dent.
A lot of media had been produced around Heather Ledger's performance as The Joker, and I admit it was scarily out of character for him, and an extremely believable performance of a psychopath, however I don't know if it warrants an Oscar. But then did Anthony Hopkins deserve a Best Actor nod for Silence of the Lambs? (Best Supporting Actor maybe?)
Anyway, the film scores 8/10 from me, but if you do go along don't expect to leave the cinema in an upbeat mood!
