Reviews for The Dark Knight

Review - Dark Knight, The

A bit too unrelentlingly dark for my taste. I thought it was pretty good for the first two thirds, and Heath Ledger made an incredible Joker, but by the final third, I was just bored and eager for it to be over.

We saw it at the Catlow with Tami and Jason Stevenson, Nate and Karen, Will and Margaret and Hannah Tran and Jamie Stowell.
