The Dark Knight
USA, 2008 | Length: 152min | FSK: 16 | Director: Christopher Nolan Cast: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman

The follow-up to the action hit »Batman Begins«, this action thriller reunites director Christopher Nolan (»Memento«, »Batman Begins«) and star Christian Bale, who reprises his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the Gotham City streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens as The Joker. Dark, grim, haunting and inventive, this visionary masterpiece is nothing short of breathtaking, representing Nolan's most accomplished and mature work to date, as well as the possibly best performance ever by the late Heath Ledger (»A Knight's Tale«, »Brokeback Mountain«) who is simply mad-crazy-brilliant as The Joker.
