The Dark Knight, The Most In-Depth Superhero Movie

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.

Faith?

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.

    Dark night IMDB score is definately not belongs to BATMAN. I am thinking like that. Most probably score is blongs to JOKER. For the following scence you will also see that main character is so passive in front of audience. I do not know may be this is the really intentional approaching. The worst one is Batman is superhero in marvel mix charcter even better and stronger than supermen. It depends on people. This is my idea , thanks for your comment to the this movie. I agree with you.

    • SkyPath

      You can say that again, Joker definitely has the biggest scores in this 9, you have a great opinion! Thank you so much!

I must be sincere, am not a fan of action movie but I will share my partner thus post to read inorder to watch it together.it will be of great advantage to watch this action movie.

    For sure this is one of my favorite movie and this movie is a super hit in India as well. And to be honest there are many regional movie characters inspired by that Joker Villain character.

    Although I watched this movie for 3 times when I read your review I got new insights. Fear and faith insights is an eye-opener. I was impressed on Heath Ledger acting and while watching the movie compared to the hero, the joker character is getting more applause. While searching on Google to know more about this actor I was shocked and I felt really bad to know that he is no more.

    “If you are good at something, never do it for free” is my favorite quote (Joker) in this movie.

    Indeed this is a must watch movie!

    Much Success!

      Yes! Joker inspired many characters! Thank you so much! Heath Ledger has one of the best performance I have ever seen in my entire life, he is leaving too early.

      Indeed, I like this line too! I also like “Madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.” Because of this line revealed the real motivation of Joker: Makes people go crazy and shows the real side of them.

    • SkyPath

      I guess you want to say is DC, but I have never seen Flash and Supergirl before, actually, this is I heard supergirl for the first time, will find some time to watch!

  • Katie Mullen

    This article was very intuitive. You did not just give a story on the plot, you took it to a whole other level. The basis of the movie as applied to the characters symbolizing humanity with all its faults and attributes. I will always look at superhero movies in a new light after this. Thanks!

    • SkyPath

      The Dark Knight has so many great points, satire humanity, like what I said in the article, I think the real villain isn’t Joker, he just the man making these problems, these problems can happen without Joker, Joker just the man leads to our ugly humanity.

    I was expecting a technical review of the movie… You know things like how well it was filmed, special effects, and so on. 

    I was surprised by a very thoughtful treatment on the metaphysics of the movie, the juxtaposition of faith and fear, and the contrast between psychosis and sociopathy. 

    The English translation was a little rough, but it was good enough to relay the full thoughts and intent of the reviewer. All things considered, this was a very good post.

    I like what you said about faith. I don’t think you exaggerated it in the slightest, and instead spoke the truth. This world is full of negative energy, and it grows daily. We see this when we’re out driving. We see this when we’re at a day job. We might even see it while running our daily errands. To have faith and persevere, through even hopelessness at times, will open up a lot of positive doors in our lives. We just have to believe and trust this positivity in a world full of negativity.

    • SkyPath

      Thank you so much, yes, we see negative energy all the time, but we don’t need to have negative energy because we see, instead, we need to dissemination our positivity to everyone, try to influences all of these negative energy! That’s how to make this world better!

    The dark knight is a rather intriguing and captivating superhero movie. Though for some time I have tried to carve out time to watch superhero movies, its good to say I enjoy a diversion from the traditional captain America and Batman movies.

    This movie I am very sure has not thought of surpassing its ratings. Thanks for the review. 

    • SkyPath

    Firstly, I think you have done good review on the movie, dark Knight. Truly for me it’s one of the best superhero villian movie I have ever seen. I also feel this is an highly intellectual movie considering the what their crime scene looks like ,the joker character that challenges you to use not just your physical abilities but your mental power to before you can crack his plots. It’s one of the greatest movie of all time.

    • SkyPath
