Thinking about it!

Coz there’s lot to be discussed…

The Dark Knight!

Went for a show of The Dark Knight, the new batman flick. I was just spellbound. Loved the movie. Lived so much up to the reviews in various newspapers. Solid solid acting performances, strong script, but most important brilliant characterization. Each actor in the movie has a good role to play and plays his/her’s well. The villain is like this super duper character. Somewhere in the mid of the movie, I was made to believe that such a real life villain would be extremely scary. I think this definitely is one of the finer performances off late by a character as a villain.

Batman too appears to become a stronger superhero. There is enough substance to make him come out as a hero with a purpose. He is an outlaw, someone who cannot afford to be celebrated as a hero. And he has chosen to continue to be the same outlaw. Batman’s other half, the rich Bruce Wayne is another role in which the actor fits to his best.

Action sequences are truly amazing. U gotta watchout for the shot where a huge truck is made to hang in mid air. The Batmobile converting into a bike also a really cool makeover.

All in all, a truly enjoyable action flick. Good performances, strong story line and most of all a villain that is scary. The movie does deserve a watch for sure and even a second one I would think.

And yes, The director did play his joker really well.
