The first half of The Dark Knight is nearly flawless. Then the Joker is arrested, and everything goes downhill fast. The dialogue is cringingly bad. The turn of Dent awkward and rushed. Basically it is just another superhero movie, when the first half truly felt like something that was elevated out of that genre. It doesn’t quite ruin the movie for me, but it does mean that Batman Begins is my favorite. They especially nail the dark and seedy nature of Gotham in that one, too. I am looking forward to The Batman. I like Pattinson; feel it has been unfair that some pigeon hole him into his twilight character.
What really throws a wrench into things is Leto’s Joker. At first, I hated it, but in THAT world, the way Joker was portrayed made sense, BUT they didn’t expand the character. Given all the variations with the Batman franchise, you are almost forced to pick and choose highlights.
I’d imagine the favor ratings of Ledger’s Joker to Leto’s is at least 5 to 1 and rightfully so. But to each their own.
