    I honestly bought the book purely for the sake of having The Dark Knight written down I was expecting the movie dialogue and situations, straight from the screen, but the book delivered much .The additional side stories Like how Crane managed to sneak his way back into TDK and just who Chechen is were both unexpected and very true to the characters they portrayed They were a pleasant surprise and definitely have a bit of re read value to them.But unfortunately a big hit on my opinion of I honestly bought the book purely for the sake of having The Dark Knight written down I was expecting the movie dialogue and situations, straight from the screen, but the book delivered much .The additional side stories Like how Crane managed to sneak his way back into TDK and just who Chechen is were both unexpected and very true to the characters they portrayed They were a pleasant surprise and definitely have a bit of re read value to them.But unfortunately a big hit on my opinion of the book was the way it destroyed the Joker s character His dialogue Most of the dialogue in the book for that matter was rushed and lacking any detail or description There were literally just big paragraphs with quotes no breaks or pauses Not to mention how pathetically brief his actions and fights were And, much to my dismay, there were no scenes that really brought out his thought process or inner workings If you hadn t seen the movie you would have no idea how terrifying his character was All and all I still finished the book in a day and was fairly happy with it The terrible portrayal of the Joker really hit me hard considering he was a big reason why I got the book in the first place, but c est la vie

join forces with Gotham s new District Attorney, Harvey Dent, to take on a psychotic bank robber known as The Joker, whilst other forces plot against them, and Joker s crimes growanddeadly.Christian Bale Bruce Wayne BatmanHeath Ledger The JokerWhen we think back to truly worthy sequels, sequels which surpass even their original predecessors, many of us would proclaim such masterpieces as Aliens, Godfather II, Empire Strikes Back, Terminator 2So with the coming of 2008 yet another sequel will be honoured enough to take it s place among these glorified masterpieces Undoubtedly, English Director Christopher Nolan begins to resemble the mythical King Midas, in the sense that every film project he breathes life into results in a deep, puzzling masterpiece of depth and serenity Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige have all mesmerized and set alight mindful debate among critics and fans alike, and for me been hailed as 5 star masterpieces which breach the synapses 2005 sees the release of Batman Begins, under the helm is none other than English Director Nolan and Warner Bros The batman franchise, after Joel Schumacher s Batman Forever and Batman Robin had been taking it s last dying breaths after turning into a colourful farce of nipples and cartoony villainy.Only a miracle could of repaired the damage done, and if any man can provide miracles Christopher Nolan surely can Batman Begins not only gave new life to a dying franchise, it redefined comic book Graphic Novel adaptations in terms of realism, acting, and adrenaline pumping cinematography This was a whole new re imagining for Bruce Wayne becoming the Batman, and quite frankly evenbelievable than Tim Burton s efforts in 1989.So 2008 sees the The Dark Knight, from Warner Brothers and once again the directorial genius of Nolan David S Goyer and Christopher Nolan collaborated on the story of this film The script itself was written by Nolan and his brother Jonathan funnily enough after watching The Dark Knight, Goyer stated I can t believe my name is on a movie this good.This time the hype, the anticipation, and the attention has increased a hundred fold since it s predecessor New cast additions include Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart and the late Heath Ledger, while old veterans return such as Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Micheal Caine and the Dark Knight himself Christian Bale Obviously the tragic death of Heath Ledger after the completion of the movie warranted alotattention for viewers due to the complexity of seeing his last performance However, The Dark Knight is testament to Ledger s legacy, his swan song, his immortal role among many chameleonic characters in his resume His roles in Brokeback Mountain, Candy, showed his adult raw talent for tackling sensitive controversial material, while A Knight s Tale, The Patriot and 10 things I hate about you showed he could entertain and be charming So with The Dark Knight we witness his best film to date, his guaranteed Academy Award grabbing carnation of the maniacal nemesis of batman, The Joker Let it just be said Heath truly is immersed 100% into the confines of the character, he makes us believe and sometimes agree with his views on society and people Joker never seized to make me laugh in appreciation despite what could be considered sick antics, I considered genius Who else could do a pen trick with someone s head Dress as a nurse with a silencer in hand and his clownish face glistening Hide in a body bag to infiltrate a mob boss s joint Who else could immortalize Batman s most famous, opposing force, Joker Without a doubt Heath Ledger bar noneSometimes, truth isn t good enough, sometimes people deserveSometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded To prepare for his iconic role as The Joker, Heath Ledger hid away in a motel room for about six weeks During this extended stay of seclusion, Ledger delved deep into the psychology of the character He devoted himself to developing The Joker s every detail, namely the voice and that sadistic sounding laugh Ledger s interpretation of The Joker s appearance was primarily based upon, of the chaotic, disheveled look of punk rocker Sid Vicious combined with the psychotic mannerisms of Malcolm McDowell s character, Alex De Large, from A Clockwork Orange Ultimately for his efforts, The Dark Knight was the first comic book movie to ever win an Oscar for an achievement in acting, specifically to Heath Ledger posthumously for Best Supporting Actor.Heath Ledger posthumously won a total of 32 Best Supporting Actor awards for his work on this film, including the Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, SAG and Critic s Choice award Christopher Nolan beautifully captures Gotham City filmed on location at Chicago Whereas Batman Begins was styled after the iconic piece from Ridley Scott s rainy, dirty Blade Runner, the sequel The Dark Knight mirrors the feel and look of Micheal Mann s Heat giving us a true homage to masters of cinema and film, and we see Nolan has been inspired by the best, rein visioning his own unique directing and styling to give us a fresh and powerful Gotham City.Indeed, a similar scene in Michael Mann s crime saga, Heat, inspired this film s introductory bank robbery sequence As a matter of fact, William Fichtner, who had a notable appearance in this scene, was also in HeatI am an agent of chaos And you know the thing about chaos It s fair The Dark Knight runs at nearly 3 hours, yet never ceases to lose any momentum It doesn t waste a scene or moment of it s run time every event is utilized and necessary to a meaningful complex plot Nolan tells a story worth telling and like his other film projects, nothing is ever as it seems, he is in a way the new master of suspense, a shadow of Hitchcock proportions Action sequences are mind blowingly frantic, old school, eye grabbing stunts and in their chaotic intensity we see that they serve purpose to the plot, yet eveninterestingly, are not played for pure entertainment value alone.Audiences are meant to watch, petrified, simply hoping that the outcome will go the hero s way and another show stealing performance from it s villain Attention is never lost because we are immersed in a breathtaking, almost completely unpredictable story, that makes us think andimportantly gains our emotional liability We come to care for the characters, because they are believable, developed, and personified.Interestingly, this film and its predecessor have one word themes which are driving forces in the stories and explanations for villains Batman Begins centers around Fear Scarecrow Ra s Al Ghul , while the focus of The Dark Knight is Chaos The Joker Two FaceDon t talk like one of them You re not Even if you d like to be To them, you re just a freak, like me They need you right now, but when they don t, they ll cast you out, like a leper You see, their morals, their code, it s a bad joke Dropped at the first sign of trouble They re only as good as the world allows them to be I ll show you When the chips are down, these these civilized people, they ll eat each other See, I m not a monster I m just ahead of the curve Maggie Gyllenhaal results in being amature Rachel Dawes than Katie Holmes Morgan Freeman again provides his authoritative presence to the role of Wayne Enterprise CEO Lucius Fox, and under anyone else s portrayal, the part would be less than memorable Legendary Gary Oldman underplays his world wearied lawman with such honest finesse and plausibility, you never feel for a second any of it is artificial The irreplaceable Michael Caine makes a gentle, reassuring, foster parent presence for Bruce Wayne yet again as faithful Alfred, and the story would surely diminish without his strong presence and interlacing moments of humourous quips and anecdotal advice for the masked hero.Aaron Eckhart whom plays Harvey Dent, really excels in being The White Knight politician of Gotham City whom is likable, and charismatic The attraction between Gyllenhaal and Eckhart is believable, whereas the love triangle which forms between the complexities of Harvey, Rachel and Bruce are greatly helped by amazing chemistry between them Dent s dual personality comes into effect very well, as we the audience scratch beyond that exterior, we see a dark side to Dent A dark side the Joker inevitably wants to exploreOh, you You just couldn t let me go, could you This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object You truly are incorruptible, aren t you You won t kill me out of some misplaced sense of self righteousness And I won t kill you because you re just too much fun I think you and I are destined to do this forever Brilliant scores by James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer In fact the scores could be two new characters in the film in the sense of depth and emotion they stitch together with the powerful resonance in the scenes The chase where Batman first uses his Bat pod bike is nerve tinglingly delivered thanks to the effective use of musical genius and poignant sound The movies climax and final scenes elevate The Dark Knight s soul into the heavens, creating a moving, emotional, turbulent, deep message of honour, sacrifice and themes of the greater good Batman isn t the hero we deserve, he s whatever we need him to beHe s strong, he can take itand as we hear deep words like this, the tones in the score give the words evenpower A power they deserve.Overall The Dark Knight rightly received 8 Academy Award nominations,than any other film based on a comic book, comic strip, or graphic novel First film based on a comic book, comic strip, or graphic novel to win an Academy Award for acting Best Supporting Actor.The Dark Knight was everything I expected it to be and evenso in places, it s certainly the dark masterpiece I predicted, but I do get the feeling that it s been overly hyped for the wrong reasons See it not just for Heath s performance which is defining and immortalized, but also see it because Dark Knight is the greatest comic book graphic novel to movie ever DC comics Warner Bros must be singing and praising Nolan a hundred fold.Dark Knight really does have the last laugh An astonishing achievement that really does succeed in redefining sequels and graphic novel comic book adaptations James Gordon Jr Why s he running, Dad Lt James Gordon Because we have to chase him James Gordon Jr He didn t do anything wrong Lt James Gordon Because he s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now So we ll hunt him Because he can take it Because he s not our hero He s a silent guardian, a watchful protector A dark knight.

    It was okay No substitute for the film, of course, no book could ever hope to fully portray what the film did Certain scenes were quoted almost right from the script with no attempts to delve into the thoughts and emotions of the characters, which is what probably irritated me the most That s one reason I like to read film novelizations, to get at least one person s perspective on what lies behind the dialogue O Neil took the easy way out a little too often in this book for my tastes.


  7. Ivy Ivy says:

    5 starsNice to have a novelization of the Dark Knight Liked that it talked about what happened in Batman Begins Wish that it talkedabout the Joker Still want to know what the Joker s real name is.What did you think of the Justice League trailer


  8. Thomas Myers Thomas Myers says:

    I like reading novelizations for the insights and expanded features However, this one is lacking in magic Also, it is hard to recommend an author who uses the word whimpering twice in three paragraphs.

    I m actually reading the other book I posted tonight I got confused The status update belongs there.
