Dark Knight : More scary than entertaining

Today, The Dark Knight has been released in Australia. To many, the movie was scary than entertaining. In this movie, people were not interested to see Christian Bale’s performance as Batman but Heath Ledger’s Joker. It was Heath Ledger’s last complete performance and already film critics heavily praised him the way he portrayed the character of Joker. The most prominent feature of movies like Batman and Daredevil is that everything takes place at night. There is no business in daylight. This is what makes these movies more scary. If you are one of those who hates movies that deals with darkness and night and killing and fights, then this movie is not for you. There is too many fighting and blood shade and Heath’s depiction of Joker, the mean minded nemesis of Batman devoid of sympathy was not enjoyed by many. Director Christoper Nolan deserves praise the way he described the whole setting. He has given meticulous attention to the details. He shot some scenes with in the high definition IMAX format. Special effects are used to transform Chicago city into Gotham. This is one movie that is definitely not good for people with heart problems.
