My opinion on The Dark Knight is well known amongst certain friends. Suffice to say that, like Batman Begins before it, I thoroughly dislike this film. Whilst there’s things I nit pick in the writing or the performances my biggest beef with TDK comes with the direction. The pacing is off, rushing important plot elements to shoe-horn in irrelevant sequences like Hong Kong and the dilema of the ferries. The action is shot too-close, too-dynamically to give a sense of frenetic urgency. Which it does, at the cost of being able to discern anything that’s happening. I could go on, but I’ll spare you.
It’s enough only to say this: I have never enjoyed a Christopher Nolan directed film and I consider him the most overrated director working today.
