The Dark Knight (2008)
Great Movie!!...and to the poster, "Mozared", from below
Loved this movie..I'm a big fan of Heath Ledger from his '10 things I hate about you' days, and will always and forever remain a fan of his acting! The plot was great, every actor/actress' were phenomenal..especially Maggie G. as Rachel. So, yeah, maybe "the batman" didn't have to make his voice so deep, but he definitely had to change it to separate himself from Bruce Wayne..I thought it was fitting.
So..to the poster "Mozared", below me, to answer your questions, why did Dent turn bad and why didn't he kill the joker when he had the chance?...Dent believed in fairness his entire life, that's what he lived by...when things started to become unfair in his eyes, such as his love being killed and his current predicament, to him, the only fairness that was left is flipping his coin. When he flipped it with the joker, he landed on heads..the joker lives, same with Maroni in the car scene, and Ramirez. Even if it causes chaos, like when you stated...him "turning bad". The joker, as well, convinces him that "chaos" is fair, as well as convincing him he,the joker, was locked up at the time, so Dent needs to go after the people who actually put him and Rachel in the warehouse. It was fairness in a sick way, if you will. Basically, Dent is just like Batman..he has rules he lives by. We all know what Batman's was, and Dent's rule was "fairness".
Now why does the joker have so many loyal men?, well it's simple these men aren't working with a full stack of cards! And actually in the original series, his 'men' came from an asylum, called Akhram...crazies, bi-polar, schizophrenics, you name it. He was able to "lure" them to do bad things for him, it wouldn't be that hard when they're "not well" to begin with!...as you saw with the guy Dent interrogated in the alley..Batman explained the joker, "feeds off these men".
And lastly, why is the Joker able to get around with explosives and no one noticing him?....well he has too many people working for him, that he bribes with money, as we saw, and you definitely don't think he set those traps up himself, do you? plus, they're "cheap".
