The Dark Knight (2008) is without a doubt the best Batman movie in history. And I know this might sound cliche but it’s one of the darkest movies ever made, and at some parts it is shockingly hard to watch. But don’t let that sway you from watching, because most of the dark scenes are produced by The Joker (Heath Ledger). He plays the role better than any human could have ever played it, and he delivered what some critics claim as the best acting performance in cinematic history. Even if you have no interest in super hero movies, you will be glad you watched this one.
