Elevator Pitch In an increasingly lawless Gotham City a new force for law and order The Dark Knight emerges to take on the Joker, a grotesquely altered criminal who used his malevolent sense of humour to put the inhabitants at risk.
Content Lots of great set pieces in the grim cityscape as Batman sets the wrongs to rights.
A View Despite later shots at the Batman franchise, the Tim Burton films are wonderful in their ability to capture the tone of the comics. I particularly like the Batmobile. Despite the more sophisticated later versions don’t miss this one.
