Just incredable! If you like movies like The Godfather or Goodfellas and combine it with somewhat of a saw feel, and combine that with a Batman movie, what do you get? The Dark Knight and you better believe that this is defently the best movie of the year by far.
The movie starts off with a bank being robbed by a group of men wearing clown masks who each have their separate task in order to complete the heist. Once the person finishes their task, the other person with them has been secretly told to shoot them so that they have less people in the gang to share with leaving more more money per person. This goes on until theres one man left. The bank owner who earlier tried to take out the gang says that "theres no honor" and "no respect" anymore and that his boss iss just going to do the same to him. After this the man takes off his mask to reveal that he is The Joker. The Joker takesnoff in a school bus with all the money and later on Gordan and investigate what happened.
The cinomatography, acting, direction, plot, dialect, atmosphere, lighting, and overall brilliance of this movie is astounding. However I only recommend this one for kids 10 and up due to some violence generally due to The Joker's sick humor. Also there is a surprise character in this movie too, but I don't want to give it away because its awesome when he appears.
Many people also say that people only loved the movie due to Heath Ledger's legendary performance, but I must say, Aaron Echhart's performance was also amazing and should be noticed also as legendary.
Overall a perfect 5 out of 5, it's hailed as the best comic book movie of all time, and is without a doubt the best movie of 2008 not to mention the oscar buzz that Heath ledger and Aaron Echhart might get nominated as well as the movie could be nominated for best effects and even best movie of the year. The academy and the fans on the same side! Now thats proof that this is truly incredible and honestly with performances, great plot, and excellent direction that is present throughout this entire movie, makes this a movie that is not to be missed.
