The Dark Knight

Good Morning

May the Lord of the Universe, Keeper of Souls and Ruler of Heavenly Kingdom, bestow good health to all of you. As for me, I am well fed and living happily. Despite minor glitches and heavy workloads, I am still alive. Good Day to all of you.

Yesterday, me GF and I went for a movie somewhere in Cheras. I never knew Cheras is this good. Many places for outing and having fun. Why should I go to Berjaya Time Square or Mid Valley to watch movies when Cheras has it all. All those places are crowded with school childrens and I hate them all. They should all stay at home and do some reading in order to become what is known as Man. It is not easy being man. Humans are everywhere, but how many humans are actually men?

Okay. To the movie then. Batman : The Dark Knight, is a sequel to 2005’s Batman Begins. The Batman is played by Christian Morgan Bale which he is professionaly known. Batman Motion Pictures are numerous and each of them is directed by dfferent Directors and played by different actors. Each movies from these directors does not share the same plot and storyline. Thus, do not be confused with them and please never ever try to relate any of them. You don’t understand!!!

The Dark Knight was the last film played by Heath Ledger (the guy from 10 Things hate about you) before his death of drug overdose (I do not know of the real stories, whether Drug Abused or Accidental Drug Overdose or what, let him Rest in Peace. May God bless you). He played the Joker very well.

A 5 Star Motion Picture for me. A must see and Worth to Watch Movie Award is given to Dark Knight. Below is the review from Wikipedia (Please be warned of spoilers):

The film begins with the Joker robbing a mob-owned bank with several other accomplices, whom he tricks into killing each other. That night, multiple Batman impersonators interrupt a meeting between mobsters and the Scarecrow. The real Batman subdues everyone but suffers injuries which lead him to design a more versatile suit. Batman and Lieutenant James Gordon contemplate including the new district attorney Harvey Dent in their plan to eradicate the mob, as he could be the public hero Batman cannot be. Harvey Dent is found to be dating Wayne’s love interest, Rachel Dawes. The mob bosses meet to discuss how to handle Batman, Gordon, and Dent, while a Chinese mobster accountant, Lau, lets the gang leaders know he has taken their money to Hong Kong to prevent the police and the district attorney from seizing it in an imminent bank raid. The Joker arrives unexpectedly, offering to kill Batman for pay.

Batman successfully abducts Lau in Hong Kong and delivers him to the Gotham City police, therefore the mobsters agree to hire the Joker. The Joker tells all of Gotham that if Batman does not turn himself into the police, more people will die each day. When the Joker begins killing public officials, including Commissioner Loeb and the judge presiding over the mob trials, Wayne decides to turn himself in. Before he can do so, Dent announces that he is Batman, to draw the Joker out of hiding. The Joker attempts to kill Dent, but Gordon and Batman intervene and arrest him.

Batman interrogates the Joker, who reveals that Dawes and Dent have been taken to opposite sides of the city, far enough apart that Batman does not have time to save both of them, and placed in warehouses rigged with explosives. Batman speeds off to save Dawes, while Gordon and the police head after Dent. However, the Joker has switched the locations, sending Batman after Dent and Gordon after Dawes. With the help of a bomb planted at the police station, the Joker escapes with Lau in tow. Batman arrives at Dent’s location in time to save him, but Dent sustains severe burns to the left side of his face. Gordon does not arrive in time to save Dawes, and she is killed in the explosion. In the hospital, Dent is driven to madness over the loss of Dawes. The Joker frees Dent from the hospital and convinces him to exact revenge on the cops, mobsters, Gordon, and Batman.

While Harvey “Two-Face” Dent confronts the corrupt cops and the mobsters one by one, flipping a coin to decide their fates, the Joker burns Lau along with the mob’s money. The Joker announces to the public that he will rule the streets and that anyone left in Gotham at nightfall will be subject to his rule. With the bridges and tunnels out of the city closed due to the Joker’s bomb threat, the authorities begin evacuating people by ferry. The Joker places explosives on two of the ferries—one carrying convicts, the other with civilians—telling the passengers on each that the only way to save themselves is to trigger the explosives on the other ferry; otherwise, at midnight he will destroy them both remotely.

Batman locates the Joker and prevents him from destroying the ferries. After being defeated by Batman, the Joker acknowledges that Batman really is incorruptible, but that Dent was not and that he has unleashed Dent’s madness upon the city. The Joker is subsequently captured by the SWAT team. Batman finds Dent holding Gordon and his family at the building where Dawes died. Dent proceeds to judge Batman, himself, and Gordon’s son through the chance of a coin flip. Dent shoots Batman in the stomach, but before he can determine the boy’s fate Batman tackles him over the side of the building. As Dent lies motionless on the ground, Batman and Gordon realize the fallout and loss of morale the city would suffer if Dent’s acts of murder became known. Batman convinces Gordon to blame him for the murders to preserve Dent’s image. As Gordon destroys the Bat-Signal, a manhunt is issued for Batman.
