The late Heath Ledger’s Os­car-win­ning por­trayal of The Joker ce­mented his place as one of Hol­ly­wood’s greats. The Dark Knight sees Gotham’s ris­ing su­per­hero (Chris­tian Bale) mak­ing progress in his vig­i­lante quest, with the help of Lt Jim Gor­don (Gary Old­man) and newly ap­pointed District At­tor­ney Har­vey Dent (Aaron Eck­hart). That is, un­til the ap­pear­ance of psy­cho­pathic mas­ter­mind The Joker, whose es­ca­lat­ing vi­o­lent games throw the city into a new era of dark­ness. Bat­man uses every weapon in his ever-grow­ing arse­nal to great ef­fect and the cast de­liver mas­ter­ful per­for­mances.
