Batman's struggle against The Joker becomes deeply personal, forcing him to "confront everything he believes" and improve his technology to stop him. A love triangle develops between Bruce Wayne, Dent, and Rachel Dawes.Written by

(at around 1h 22 mins) Following the truck flip at the end of the car chase, the Joker approaches Batman, and 2 of his henchmen are visible: One who touches Batman's mask and gets electrocuted, and another who stands to the left of the screen, doing apparently nothing. This henchman disappears completely after Joker spits on the other, and is nowhere to be seen when Gordon arrives. See more »

Three of a kind, let's do this!
That's it? Three guys?
Two guys on the roof. Every guy gets a share. Five shares is plenty.
*Six* shares. Don't forget the guy who planned the job.
He thinks he can sit it out and still take a slice?
[up on the roof]
I know why they call him "The Joker".
[breaking open the alarm box with Dopey]
So why do they call him "the Joker"?
I hear he wears makeup.

Large blue flames dissipate in the center to form the new Batman symbol. The film title does not appear until the the closing credits. See more »
The Blu-ray version of the movie has several of the big action scenes and high altitude photography scenes in ordinary 16:9 (1.78:1) widescreen ratio while the rest of the movie preserves the "scope" format (2.39:1). This is because these scenes were filmed in IMAX, whose format is 1.43:1, thus attempting to recreate the effect witnessed in IMAX theaters, as well as preserving as much of these shots as possible.

The Most Realistic True to Heart Movie Based on Comic Books.
A brilliant tense movie from the beginning to the end in which tells the story of the rising new menace in Gotham city known only as the Joker and how the Dark Knight has to reach his limits trying to control the havoc he breaks in Gotham city.
The movie is an extraordinary piece of the filmmaking art in all its aspects, the plot is carefully and smartly written as a intricately wrought canvas, the character development is very satisfying, the movie was shot well and nicely directed, the epic score fits the scenes and add up to the whole visual experience, the acting was intense by all cast where each fit their role perfectly, specially Heath Ledger who managed after all these years of having the Joker around in comic books, animations, TV series and even movies to literally bring this complicated character with all its twisted, brilliant, sadistic, dark and sometimes funny personality to live on the big screen. This is the last movie that Heath Ledger filmed completely and I believe some how he saved the best for last as he managed to put an outstanding final act of a realistic Joker and managed to put a smile on our faces before death brings down the curtains on his talent.
