First of all, I have to say I’m not a fan of Batman, but this superhero movie definitely will promote your thinking. “The Dark Knight” scores 9 in IMDb, it makes me confused before I watch it: “This movie rate higher than Avengers: Infinity War? seriously?
I just think how “The Dark Knight” need to do so they can beat the unbelievable scene in Avengers: Infinity War? And I’m not a huge fan of DC which I said it before, Batman actually didn’t even caught my attention, so I ignore this movie for a long time.
Until these few days, I saw some information about the Joker that Heath Ledger plays, finally interested me. You can see how talent Heath Ledger is from a little scene, although he passed away too early, you still can feel his soul in this movie.
If There is a Superhero in Reality?
I think Batman is a hero who is quite close to reality, of course, ignore the huge property he has and why does he have time to punch people, that is “What kind of world is the world that needs superheroes?” I think this question is very interesting because I didn’t think about that before I watch this movie.
In that world, “Superhero” doesn’t means another form of “freak”? People scary about an unpredictable thing, no matter is your stroke got disrupted, or your planning vacation or a vacation that has already been planned but has encountered a storm, “unpredictable” is what people be afraid and also it is “Batman”.
Yes, he really helps the citizen, but with another angle is: “What if he changes his mind one day? We don’t even know who is he?”
People are afraid various possibilities, even this thing not yet happen, they can devouring another one to live with on one’s last legs, I think the villain of this movie is not the Joker, but the dark side of humanity.
And you know what? The real world is staged this movie, the only difference is we don’t have Joker and Batman.
The Ace of Joker
Why does Joker can talk a deal with the gangster? Why Joker can fool around with police? Why Joker can lead out Batman? Actually, it is based on “Fear”, because people are afraid of losing their money, reputation, even hope.
“Fear” is such a powerful status, is the oldest and strongest emotion of mankind.
Joker caught the emotion of “fear to lose” by a human, so he can manipulate people whatever he wants, even have much capital to deal with other people. You might say Joker is very sinister? For me, I think he just catches the point.
And we need to think in turn, everyone will have a weakness, and the weakness usually comes from other people want to take control of you. He actually knows he is not a psychopath, his thinking is clearer than anyone else, only is he doesn’t have a moral conscience.
That’s why Joker so arrogant because he doesn’t have any emotion of fear, he doesn’t have a plan.
I have to praise the acting of Heath Ledger, too good to makes people “fear”, instead of saying that he plays the Joker, I would say that Joker is another side of him, I think that’s why many of the people think his death associated with the Joker this character, even if it is not the case.
I believe everybody is living for they faith, and this faith actually is easy to disappearing because of reality. You will start imitation the people choice the easy road, suddenly, you already be a people full of negative Energy, or be a people not interested anything around you.
I think it the same as the crime or the same as people’s trust in society. For now, many of the shooting Incident, really makes people losing their hope, these perverted killer seems to be more and more, is hard to keep faith in this situation.
I am an atheist, but I believe religious existence have they meaning, I believe there has a good side and also a bad side, and the good side maybe a kind of “faith”? It can keep your initial heart under any condition.
Because when people starting lose they faith, society will really begin to fall apart, people will no longer believe in each other, no longer believe in justice, no longer believe in hope. You maybe think I am too exaggerated, but this is a gear wheel of society, we can’t see from outside, but it can run without them.
Very Attentive Plot Arrangement
For a superhero movie, “The Dark Knight” plot arrangement is extremely professional, I can even say this movie will still stunning even take off Batman, even as a crime film, still has a potential to get a high score.
I think this is associations with a fascinating villain, they are too strong that really makes audience nervous, after all, superhero has a principle of winning, I think this point is same as Thanos, powerful villain and also has a self-concept, sometimes is more brilliant than superhero, and this movie is like this.
I definitely will recommend you to watch this movie, even you haven’t seen any one of the trilogy, or even doesn’t see Batman at all (like me), I still think it worth to watch, because it is a very mature superhero movie.
Still have to emphasize the outstanding performance of Joker, in my opinion, Heath Ledger takes this movie to another level, Rest in Peace.
