Why So Serious ?
Batman - The Dark Knight
Venue : Imax Adlabs (mumbai)

I can confidently tell you that there has been no movie that i have wanted to watch so much like the batman movie the dark knight , especially after the previous batman movie (batman begins).
With so much expectation from the director , the cast and the screenplay...i went in to the theatre..
the next 150 minutes of the movie have simply been amazing...i was not one bit disapointed with the movie , the movie had everything , heroes turning villans , villans turning mad , humour , thriller , twists , and of course action...i will not try and review the movie as i won't be a good critic..
but according to me , batman -the Dark Knight will be remembered for the performances of the late heath ledger ..he has for me given the best performance any actor can possibly give for a villanous role..i was speechless , amazed ..and scared all at the same time..
his antics with tricks , his licking of his scars around his lips while muttering the infamous tagline " WHY SO SERIOUS ? "...the smile...the frown...the look..the walk..the talk...
The movie wasn't the best movie ever made..but it is definitely the best superhero movie i think..
although on second thoughts i think the weight of expectations mite have compelled me to believe its on par with batman begins... and on some levels i think batman begins was slightly more brilliant..
overall ..its a must watch..and for batman fans like me ...you can watch it 5 times and not get bored..
