The staff here at MediaTakeOut.com had our very first OFFICIAL STAFF OUTING - to the Batman Dark Knight move ... yeah, Fred is a CHEAP AZZ ... Well, anyway - we unanimously loved the film. Our only criticism is that It was a little long. Oh, it also would have been better if MediaTakeOut.com wouldn't have made us share one small box of popcorn. SMDH ....
It was good. LOVE the Joker he is clearly the sickest villain out there. It was a little long, but I'm still thinking about seeing it again.
FOR THIS TO BE HEATH LEDGERS LAST MOVIE WHAT A WAY TO REMEMBER HIM..HE WAS GREAT ..MOVIE IS GREAT
LISTEN TO MY MUSIC!!!!!!!!
I liked the old school Batman movie series better (Batman, Batman and Robin, Batman Forever..). I can't help but wonder if Heath Ledger is getting all this praise because he's no longer with us.
This movie was soooooooo CRACK!!!!
iT REALLY LIVED UP TO THE HYPE BUT WHY BATMAN VOICE SOUND SO FUNNY!

By far the best movie out this year (so far) LOVED IT! The Joker was sick heath Ledger did an excellent job
Hands down the best movie that has been out this year....Heath Ledger R.I.P. his performance was a classic.
The moveie was better than IRON MAN and saying alot. Not to mention I saw on IMAX. You must see it...althoe its sold out for til 2010!!
Heath was a beast in that pic
The Dark *** is definitely not overhyped. This has been the best movie this year since Iron Man. Heath Ledger performance was amazing and the plot had me on the edge of my seat.
Dark *** is a bit too long. It should have been at least a 1/2 hr ***.
Maggie Gyllenhaal: I appreciate all kinds of beauty, but there are more attractive "interesting beauties" out there than her. I was so distracted by the way she looked I could hardly concentrate when she was on screen.
Heath was excellent as the joker. I didn't want to buy into all of the buzz around him in this role, but he just tapped into something and it worked.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. It's as good as Iron Man, just darker.
DIDN'T SEE IT............
This movie was off the chain. Though Maggie Gyllenhall reminded me of Margot Kidder,the lady who played Lois Lane in the earlier Superman movies. They both ugly as hell.
I can't wait to it again though. Dark *** killed Ironman, and Ironman was the ish. Though I wish it was longer. I have no clue what part 3 will be about.
I'm gonna see it tomorrow, but thanks for the reviews.
I went to TRY and see it last ***, But in the central florida area (i was told this at the teller at citywalk) that most theatres in the area are booked for the next 3 *** weeks to see batman...
what is SMDH?
when the action slows down a little bit, it may seem like it's a little too long, but the movie itself was off the chain
THIS MOVIE WAS THE BEST MOVIE SINCE 300! I give it 5 thumbs up, lol....
If I have to wait months to see the movie I'll be watching it on DVD.
i seen da movie lass nite *** i muss say IT WAS DA ***!! Heath Ledger made dat part his bytch (mos def) *** it was worth da money!!
The movie was great! I give it 5 stars. I read the comics and graphic novels of Batman when I was a youngster. Contrary to the old school tv show and the first series of Batman movies, Batman was always a dark character, and the villains even more so, and this new series of movie lives up to that.
Heath was just too *** good!
SMDH=Shaking my *** head.
Yes I want to go see it. They say that this role is what drove him to suicide..I dont know
this move was tha bomb but it was a little too long. i think heath is gettin a lot of recognition becuz he gone but he killed it especially wit tha laugh
are you f ucking stupid? you thought batman and robin was better than dark ***? that film nearly killed the batman movie franchise.
My thoughts on it, this movie is a freakin masterpiece, very dark and gritty plot, fantastic story telling, outstanding acting, memorable characters, and crowd pleasing action scenes. I mean this film has ever thing to satisfy movie goers. truly a classic in my opinion.
im tryna get in there ***!
I'm going to see it ***. I refused to go on opening ***. Especially here in Philly, no thanks. But seeing Dark *** is definitely a priority of mine today, as I have been a Batman fan for YEARS!
Why have ugly women been getting the lead roles?
Nah serioulsy, I'm looking forward to it.
The movie was off the chain. Unlike the other Batman movies, this one and Batman Begins stayed true to the actual comic. Bob Kane would be proud! I wonder what the next story arc will entail. Bane perhaps???
I saw this movie opening *** at the esquire 7 in tha LOU!!! This movie was HOTTT! Loved it. My hubby may he RIP owned that joker role! I like when the "joker" said " I can make this pencil dissapear" then he impaLed that mans head through the pencil. CRAZY! The whole movie plot is dark and evil ! PERFECT!
Yes yes that was one of the Most HILARIOUS part in the movie! Ledger KILLED the part as Joker...This was a masterpiece!
I looooooved the Movie! Had to pre-buy tickets though. After I read the reviews on here I see that I'm NOT going crazy after all! Maggie Gylenhaal's face was wayyyy too old and decrepit to replace Katie Holmes. Hell Jennifer Beals wouls have done a better job of appearing younger and she's over 40. Her voice was terrible, I totally didnt feel sorry for her when she died but somehow if it were Katie Holmes or Jessica Alba, I would have. Her face has TOTALLY inspired me to quit smoking before I get age lines.
There are certain things about the movie that I did not get, Why did Batman go to save Harvey personally as opposed to Grandma? Either way I LOVED THE MOVIE! I didnt mind it being almost 3hrs long...I truly wished it were longer!
Heath Ledger was fannnntassstic! When I see him in the Joker role its pretty hard to imagine him as the same guy that starred in Brokeback Mountain, what and ACTOR!!
the movie is ok, I didn't like what they did whith twoface character, he should have had his own movie. not trying to play the race card but did anyone noitce the amount of blacks that was killed in this movie, just about every black cop you saw was killed, including the black comminsioner and the two black gangsters. the storyline was going nowhere.
That maggie chick was UGLY! Her face looked all sad and depressed the entire movie! Her face was all droopy! She had lines under her eyes like her face was healing up from getting a beating! All she needed was some white make-up, bright red blush and red lipstick and she could have had the role as one of the jokers henchmen or the jokers stunt double.
I tried to see it last ***, but it was SOLD OUT everywhere! I will try to reserve some tickets today.
People tell me the movie is an instant classic and that Heath Ledger out did ole Jack as the Joker! RIP Heath!
The Dark *** was the best movie I have seen this year, and the best comic-to-movie adaptation ever. The drama was fluid and realistic, the action was flawless, and Heath's version of The Joker was untouchable. My only gripe was that Batman's voice was annoying.
Hopefully they'll have The Riddler and Catwoman in Batman 3.
if you didn't see the movie why are you posting that you didn't see it? some of you all are stupid as hell!!
I haven't seen it yet but I plan to..
I just saw the movie and it was HOTT! The action, acting, special effects and make-up...clearly the best movie I've seen in a while. All the actors were good but Heath Ledger?! WOW-he did the dayumn thing! At first I thought all that Oscar buzz was a sympathy thing cuz of how he died. But now that I've seen the movie I can say he TRULY deserves to win. I ain't into white guys usually but that was the FINEST Batman I've ever seen! lol. But his voice was a bit much at times. I would've shaved about 30 mins off the movie cuz it was a bit too long but other than that-definitely worth seeing! And-y'all be nice...Maggie Gyllenhall is not the prettiest chick but isn't that the point? That a less-than perfect chick can get some love too?? Neither was Margot Kidder or Ellen Pompeo (Greys Anatomy). Bottom line: the movie is FYA!
UMMM DVD. AND MTO SIT YALL *** DOWN TRYIN 2 TELL US WHAT YALL DID LIKE WE CARE.
i guess i will wait til it come on pbs
I have heard nothing but postive reviews from people. Everyone who seen it said the movie was excellent. I wanna see it now!!!
Saw the movie at Battery Park theater in NYC and it was bangin...
FAR FROM OVERHYPED.
AND BETTER THAN IRON MAN.
..the movie truly lives up to the Dark Batman in the original comics and Heath Ledger is an amazing method actor. He killed the part of Joker. Maggie Gyllenhaal hall brings depth to her character that Katie Holmes only wish she could. The wholes cast was amazing...
*** Christian Bale is hot. lol...
I loved the movie. (Actually this wasn't Heath last movie when he past he just finished wrapping another movie in london so that was his last movie) Anywaysz the movie was great HEATH (Oscar) May he rest in peace. The actiOn was hyped... Kept me glued.
I agree with BklynRogue....batmans voice was very annoying! lol! but the movie was very good Heath Ledger did a good job...he was the star of the show instead of batman himself. Christian Bale did an alright job but the joker stole the show in my opinion. it was a bit long tho
This movie was wonderful and I absolutely loved Heath Ledger as the Joker not just bc he's passed on R.I.P but this was the best movie I have seen in a long time.
FROM WHAT I've seen across different media of the Joker character, I'd say that Ledger's Joker was well acted but different from most Jokers I've seen. The C. Romero Joker was great... as was the Jack ***. Joker. IDK.. its a different kind of batman movie these days so its just a slight departure from what "comic-like" mainstream Joker would be in my humble opinion.
419! LC! OH! TOL!!!
The movie was f ucking great!
Where I live it was none of that getting tickets at the theater... people had them all hemmed up from off the web, as did I, from movietickets.com.
Treat yourself and... Go See This Movie.
TWO GOT *** LONG!
AND TOO MUCH SUSPENSE...A *** ALMOST WENT INTO CARDIAC ARREST WITH ALL THAT *** AND EXPLOSIONS AND SH!T...
OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS GREAT :)
This movie was the SH*T!!!!
The action began the first minute, which I loved. I hate movies that take FOREVER to get to the action!
I had no problem with the length of the movie. As long as the action keeps coming and there is a great storyline, the time goes by fast anyway.
All of the actors/actresses were great! Heath Ledger (RIP) was definitely a incredible, well-rounded, versitale actor. He went from playing a *** in "A ***'s Tale", a teenage punk in "10 Things I Hate About You", a *** cowboy in "Brokeback Mountain", to the Joker in "Batman". Hollywood is truly missing great actor.
This movie was definitely worth the money and I'll probably go see it again in IMAX!
Heath Ledger killed it as the JOKER, By far the best BATMAN and this was the best movies this summer,it was LONG but it kept you interested I am beside myself wantes to go and see it again... LOVEDDDDDDDDDDDD ITTTTTTTTTTTT... RIP HEATH you made us PROUD...
Unbelivable movie, I thought. Christian Bale's character radiated on screen. I much perfer him in Batman Begins though, because you get more in depth with him!
Heath Ledger did an outstanding performance, and it's horrible of his death because the third Batman movie was also suppose to be about him.
The ending was unbelivable, and I really could have stayed longer!
Aaron Eckhart did an unbelivable job also, and I thought the movie was really just about Harvey Dent's -White ***- versus Bruce Wayne's -Dark ***-.
I can't wait till the third, hopefully Christopher Nolan will sign on, because Christian Bale will only do it with him!
Congratulations to the cast of this movie for an epic perfomance!
Seen it twice already....only because I fell asleep in the 12:01 premier showing. It was worth it....but long as hell!
Heath Ledger was great. That would have helped him distance himself from "Brokeback". I think it was Oscar worthy.
Christian Bale is one of my favorite, if not favorite, actors. Love his independent film work more. But he IS staring in the next installment of Terminator.
I HATED Batman Begins!!! I actually fell asleep in the middle of it at the theater, so I was truly upset when I was forced to go see The Dark *** today. It appeared overhyped and the movie trailer did nothing for me.
I take it ALL back!!! The movie was phenomenal! It had me on my all toes the full 2 1/2 hours! The underlaying themes were thought provoking the storyline and action was perfectly timed. The plot twists were well executed and last but not least Heath Ledger was amazing! For a good while I really didn't see him. I saw the Joker. For this to be one of his last major roles, it was a great way to end.
And I agree with someone else, this movie was a far-cry from a comedy, lol but everytime Batman spoke my friends and I bust out laughing. Not to take away from the movie or anything, but that annoying voice was a bit of comic relief...aside from the Joker's quirky insane gestures and antics.
To me, the only interesting scenes all included the Joker, Heath Ledger was excellent...besides that, a major sleeper! I fell asleep midway through it. Christian Bale (Batman) is not charismatic nor interesting. I still haven't been able to get past the 1st 10 minutes of Batman Begins. They need a better Batman. I still say Michael Keaton was the best!
I haven't seen the movie yet but wanted to see what people said. I think it's interesting to see all the comments focussed on Maggie's looks as opposed to how well she can act. Everything isn't about looks people this is why there aren't proper singers, actors etc because everyone is throwing stones livin in a glass world. There is beauty in everyone sometimes it might not be for you but it's there. We need to stop being so *** shallow in our society before there isn't anything creative left. When you become a casting director then you can cast who you want but until then STFU
^That is so true but I'm not going to lie I had a very hard time looking @ her....And to one of the above comments yes I thought that batman's voice was hilarious me and my sister couldn't stop laughing everytime he talked.
Heath was a really good actor. I have not seen the movie but I do plan on downloading a bootleg copy lol.
With that said MTO I don't know why yall pasted your logo across this picture cause you know you have no rights to it. And you guys are constantly hollerin about copyright infringement.
RIP Heath. RIP.
LOVED IT!! the joker was crazy; heath did a great job. it's so sad that such a great actor is gone.
the dude that played batman, christian bale, was hot. the joker was even kind of sexy to me! I know that's weird!
OK, well, overall I loved the movie. Batman's voice was a lil hard on the ears, tho. Heath Ledger was awesome. You guys gotta give it up for that performance. What's annoying, is that people are gonna play off his accolades becuz they are gonna assume he's getting them becuz he's dead. Truth be told, if you didn't think he was great you obviously didnt see the movie. I bet most of the haters didnt even see the movie but still up here commenting. I hate haters. Oh yeah, I would like to have seen Two-Face survive to the next movie, but oh well.
JadeFox you are an idiot for spoiling it for the ones that did'nt see it.
One of the best movies this year. It wasn't too long...it everything you could want considering how much a movie ticket costs these days. Heath Ledger MADE THAT MOVIE! As for the *** who screamed racism about the number of black folks killed...last I checked, 10 whites, 4 blacks, an asian and a mexican got killed. Sounds like equally opportunity killing to me.
Man, that movie was the best of 2008 hands down! The cast was wonderful and Heath Ledger played the hell outta his role as the Joker! The only things I didn't like was the length ( I had to pee, but didn't wanna miss anything so it sucked to have to sit there and hold it, lol) and I didn't like Batman's voice...Ewwwww!
ok..First the mopvie was long as hell....which was ridiculous...the joker(heath Ledger) was amazing..i loved him...he made me wanna be a villian..ok...the movie was WAY too amped up..it was that good...it was too many twists and turns and main characters...it americans the movie has to be simple yet confusing at the same time..this movie was difficult and confusing..which left half of the movie theater saying what the fcuk...there was too many un answered questions..what happened to the joker...where did batman go..why did they bust the batman light..why did the man go crazy over rachel...why did the man type his name into the screen..just complete madness...but to wrap things up...if there is a sequel.. they will not be getting my money until they play it on tv...
@yoyoduona get the f^ck outta here with that dumb sh!t ***!!F^ck you,and that punk a$$ websie!1 With that said i paln to peeep that batman out this evening
Heath Ledger did pretty well as the Joker and Chritian Bale is so fine! I didn't realize that he was the one that played in ***.
If I had to choose between this movie and Iron Man being the best, I would have to say Iron Man especially since Im not a die-hard Batman fan. However, I did think the movie was a litte over-hyped and over-rated. It seems like they've been promoting it since Heath Ledger died.
@yoyoduona..take your inter-racial website and stick it in your a$$.
that *** was crazy. loved it
I'm convinced you're a bit slow lol. The things you didn't get were quite obvious if you were paying attention. I would run down and explain it all, but I don't want to spoil it for everyone else. Gosh I hate pple who can't follow movies. Stick to romantic comedies.
and this is coming from someone with no previous interest in the Batman franchise. The plot explains itself.
and I agree I doubt anyone in particular would get an Oscar nom, but despite being a Super hero movie this should def be nominated as best pic or at least best cast ensemble.
yo!!! Batman was INSANE!! Heath ledger did an amazing job..joker was seriously messed and sick. the only bad thing is that it's too long.. other than that 5 STARSSS!!!!!!!!!!
**that movie was GREAT, I loved it every long @$$ second lol!! I really didn't realize how long the movie was because it was that good and i was that into it!!
it made my day yesterday**
You are stupid for telling the whole world your going to DOWNLOAD A bootleg copy of this movie! QUIT BEING CHEAP!
You are the idiot! You clearly can't read. The title of this thread states" to all that SAW batman the dark ***", meaning whoever saw the the dark *** come on here and give your opinion on the movie! If you haven't seen the movie yet what are you doing on here putting your two cents in about somebody writing what they observed in the movie? That's dumb! Whoever is on here posting for this particular thread and they haven't saw the movie yet know that folks are going to be describing the movie in detail!
Its was Fantastic..Slam Dunk...You might be mad cause it was long *** hell,BUT.....It was soooo worth it. Heath Ledger is/was da bomb!!! And I don't even like comic book movies. lol. Go see it!!
I thoroughly enjoyed it and didn't find it too long. It seemed as if they gave you something that the trailers didn't completely spoil. Just when it seemed things were over with, there was a fantastic plot twist which added to the length but ended on a sad not rather than the "american happy ending" version. It was definitely dark and I got lost in Heath Ledgers character, I didn't know he had it in him but he played a really good joker. He had that laugh down pack! They also did a good job portraying him as a psycho which is more true to his character than a bank robber as other sources have portrayed him. He was highly organized, intelligent and psychotic. Very good movie.
LMAO that MTO had 2 share a small box of popcorn.
couldn't get tickets *** i don't plan on paying $150 to see it either...
i will be purchasing the bootleg copy from my nail salon.
Batman sounded like a stage 2 cancer patient with a voicebox! Very detracting! Had to really pay attention and listen when he was in his costume. Great movie other than That! Batman saved Harvey because rachel was Fugly!
i really enjoyed it as well!
Man it was long but I stayed along with it.
Great Movie!!! Very Intense!!! Go See It!!!
I went and saw it last *** 7-20-08 and that mug is blay..you definitely get your moneys worth.. the joker did steal the show and he was the best joker to date.. i just wish the love interest would've been prettier, they used a not so attractive fake a$$ carey fisher ...thats my only complaint.. *** out to tiny lister jr..he did his thang lol
The BEST Superhero movie of all time, yes the movie was long, but it was also worth the money, Heath Ledger made me 4get about Jack Nicholson's Joker, it's just un4tunate that he was so wrapped up in the character that it cost him his life
@ Sassy_Like_DD, what movie theater did U go 2 that charged $150 2 see a movie?
I enjoyed the movie and I'm not a Heath Ledger fan but he did a good job. Jack Nicholson did a good job in a more funny way and Heath did it an a scary way. The movie was long but there was alot of action and good special effect. I give it two thumbs up
Thei movie was *** good. Believe the hype. Heath Ledger creeped me out big time as the joker. Not for kids at all. I still cringe from the joker making the "pencil disappear". Ouch! My nerves were *** in almost every scene that the Joker was in. You just don't know who he is gonna "F" up next.
Off the muhfuhkin' hook!!!!" What!!! Plus I saw that joint at the Imax theatre (A must if you're going to peep it!)Word life.Real Talk.Brooklyn Lives-Think B.i.g.
OMG! It was an awesome movie. I didn't want to jump on the Heath Ledger band wagon, but he was ssssssssssssss[SPAM]oooo great as the Joker! The movie is a definite MUST SEE!
@Qamil...The pencil disappearing made me jump big time. The joker had me all nervous through the whole movie.
Christian Bale was there, adding nothing to the vicious Batman character in this version... but I'll let him slide this time. Heath Ledger was the best villian since "No Country For Old Men"!! It was too long!!! Happy to see Eric Roberts working. His talents have been overlooked. Overall the movie deserves a B!
A lot of people are saying that Heath Ledger is getting a lot of praise for his portrayl of the joker because of his death, but in all actuality there had been a buzz about this role well before his death. I keep up with movies and before the movie even started marketing, there had been a hype about Ledger and the movie as a whole.
The first movie introduces the characters, the second movie sets the story, the third is all out war. Expect the next batman in 2010 to be the bidness. This is how trilogies work. I.E. MATRIX, STAR WARS any epic saga follows this formula. The movie was very good and well put together.
girlygirl, I fell asleep too. I did enjoy what got to see.
yo dere are some serious *** dumb people in here....
