azebz 2023/01/13



In the city of Gotham, crime is rampant and its citizens are afraid to walk the streets at night. Batman (played by Christian Bale), the caped crusader, has been fighting crime for some time now and has managed to strike fear into the hearts of many criminals. The Joker (played by Heath Ledger) is a new villain who has come to town with a mission to wreak havoc and cause chaos.

The Joker’s first move is to rob a bank, which he does with precision and brutality. He then announces that he will kill people every day until Batman reveals his true identity. Meanwhile, Harvey Dent (played by Aaron Eckhart), a new district attorney, is determined to take down the mob boss who controls Gotham’s criminal underworld.

Batman teams up with Lieutenant Jim Gordon (played by Gary Oldman) to try and stop the Joker’s killing spree. They manage to save one of his targets but realize that they need more information about him if they are going to stop him for good.

Harvey Dent becomes the hope of Gotham City as he successfully prosecutes high-profile criminals with help from Batman. However, his love interest Rachel Dawes (played by Maggie Gyllenhaal) becomes increasingly worried about his growing obsession with taking down organized crime in Gotham.

The Joker kidnaps Harvey and Rachel in his attempt to bring Batman out into the open. In a tense showdown on two separate locations, Batman arrives at each location but ultimately chooses to save Harvey while Rachel dies in an explosion caused by one of the Joker’s henchmen.

Harvey survives but suffers severe facial burns which lead him down a path of madness as he takes on the persona of “Two-Face.” Meanwhile, the Joker continues his rampage through Gotham, leaving chaos and destruction in his wake.

Batman finally confronts the Joker in an intense showdown where he manages to capture him. However, Two-Face also traps Jim Gordon’s family and flips a coin to decide their fate. Batman arrives in time to stop Two-Face but not before he loses one of his allies.

In the end, Batman is forced to take the blame for Harvey Dent’s crimes and go into hiding. He entrusts Jim Gordon with continuing the fight against crime in Gotham while hoping that one day he will be able to return and make things right.

The Dark Knight is an intense, dramatic movie that explores the themes of chaos, justice, and heroism. Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker is widely regarded as one of the greatest performances in cinema history, earning him a posthumous Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Overall, The Dark Knight remains a timeless classic for superhero fans and general moviegoers alike.




“The Dark Knight” is a 2008 superhero movie directed by Christopher Nolan.

The movie begins with Batman and Lieutenant James Gordon teaming up to take down the remaining criminal organizations in Gotham City following the events of “Batman Begins.” Their efforts are complicated by the arrival of the Joker, an anarchic and unpredictable criminal who seeks to create chaos in Gotham City. As Batman tries to stop the Joker’s schemes and protect those he cares about, he must also confront his own limitations and ethical dilemmas.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
