After watching and reviewing American films in this class, it is my turn to submit my favorite movies and justify their importance in the film industry. Out of all the movies I have seen, the only one that had emotional impact with me was the 2008 film, Batman – The Dark Knight.
The movie shows the dangerous impact of criminals in Gotham city and how to deal with it. Batman, Bruce Wayne was played by (Christian Bale). Bruce with out the batman suit is a rich and carless guy who has one goal in life “Girls”. However, the real Batman is very controversy to this, he acts as an uncovered honor hero who wants to protect Gotham city from criminals, especially the Joker (Heath Ledger). The joker has nothing important in his life. Everything is worthless he killed for only one purpose, fun. The joker started in the movie by interrupt a group of criminals who are scared by the new Gotham’s hero, Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) the district attorney who is aiming to be the next governor, and if he reduces the amount of crimes in Gotham city he may have a better chance to be the next governor. However, after an incident made by the Joker Harvey’s face was burned, also his mind too was burned with criminal thoughts. The Batman and lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) decided to cover Harvey’s last attempts as a criminal and let him die with an honor. In addition, Harvey and Bruce both have some emotion to Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal).
The movie shows great fights between the two main characters Batman and The Joker. Batman wanted the most to arrest the Joker and brings him to the justice. However, the only concern for The Joker was to know who the real Batman is. “The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules. And tonight, you’re gonna break your one rule.” this was one of the Joker’s quote to illustrate his concerns of knowing who the Batman is.
