Set within a year after the events of Batman Begins (2005), Batman, Lieutenant James Gordon, and new District Attorney Harvey Dent successfully begin to round up the criminals that plague Gotham City, until a mysterious and sadistic criminal mastermind known only as "The Joker" appears in Gotham, creating a new wave of chaos. 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
The Joker's fate at the end of this movie was left ambiguous. This is in line with the comics, as The Joker would routinely be presumed dead to end a story, only to see him return in later stories very much alive. See more »
When Joker is in custody they take away his jacket and gloves--when he's sitting in the holding cell clapping for Commissioner Gordon, when Gordon removes his handcuffs and when Batman is attacking him in the interrogation room, he has no gloves. But right after his escape when he's riding in the back of the police car, his jacket is still gone but he suddenly has gloves again. See more »

Three of a kind, let's do this!
Huh, that's it? Three guys?
Plus 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.
If he thinks he can sit it out and still take a slice I know why they call him "The Joker".
[up on the roof, breaking open the alarm box with Dopey]
So why do they call him "the Joker"?
I hear he wears makeup.
Yeah, to scare people. You know, ...

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.

I had the honor of watching TDK during a screening and was completely blown away! This isn't just the best Batman movie ever made, this is one of the best movie ever made. Everything in this film is excellent, not one piece of annoyance.
Bale marvels as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Ledger has made The Joker in to an iconic movie villain. His performance belongs there at the top with Hopkins Lecter. The Joker has finally been portrait properly on film, he has earned his place between the big boys in movie villandom. This is the true Joker every Batman fan knows, loves and fears. Ledger deserves any and every movie award known to man for this brilliant display.
Nolan has made his "I will always be remembered" movie, this is the crownjewel in his portfolio. Perfect directing, perfect story, perfect balance between action and drama, everything is perfect.
Even if you hate Batman, you will love this film. If you don't, then something beez wrongz with youz!
