I fail to understand how this movie is third in IMDB top250. I agree that the movie was good but number three – naah. The overall plot is good with good performances by Chris Bale (The Batman) and Heath Ledger (The Joker) and certainly one of the best movies of 2008.
Couple of things were predictable in the plot like The Joker acting dead while some junkies present him to the gang-lord (dont know who he was) for the prize money. And when Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) declares himself as Batman.
There were also couple of cool scenes in the movie. The first scene with Bank robbery, and the one where The Joker goes to the “conference” of the gangsters. Among the action scenes, the one where Batman’s car converts into a motor bike and when he topples the truck down with his strings, were the best. Even the “prisoner’s dilemma” was used aptly in the end by means of the “social experiment” in the ships by The Joker.
I would give it 5 out of 5.
