The Dark Knight

Batman : The Dark Knight was superbly superb!! The Dark Knight is the sequel to Batman Begins (2005) with Christian Bale played as Batman. This film concentrate on Batman's conflict with his well-known enemy, the Joker by Heath Ledger and a district attorney (DA) Harvey Dent by Aaron Eckhart.

Bruce Wayne / Batman (Christian Bale)

Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, a wealthy industrialist, playboy, and philanthropist. In The Dark Knight, Batman is in dilemma whether can he quit and live a normal life. Further more, the Joker tells all of Gotham that if the Batman does not turn himself in to the police, then he will kill people every day. When the Joker begins killing off public officials, including Commissioner Loeb, despite the best efforts of the police and Batman to stop him, Wayne, who was in total guilt decides to turn himself in to the police. But before he can do so, Dent admits in public that he was "the Batman" to draw the Joker out of hiding.

My favorite character of The Dark Knight, my favorite actor all along, and my favorite negative role in movie : the Joker ( Heath Ledger)

Ledger as the Joker didn't use a mask; instead he used makeup that highlights the red scar of a grin with the grungy hair and the yellowing teeth. To the clown prince of crime, the Joker preferred a knife than a gun, As quoted the Joker said the better to "savor the moment."
To prepare for the role, Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character's posture, voice and psychology, and kept a diary, in which he recorded the Joker's thoughts and feelings to guide himself during his performance. [wikipedia] The Joker represents the last completed role for Ledger, who died in January at 28 before finishing work on Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Some of the Joker quotes that i like:
"What doesn't kill you, makes you stranger."
- telling people about a dad who carved a smile into his son's face with a razor
"I don't want to kill you. You complete me." told the Joker to Batman.
"I choose chaos." the Joker said that he's not interested in wealth or fame.

Harvey Dent / Two Faces (Aaron Eckhart)

Dent as a the new DA tries to rebuild Gotham's image for the better facing a problem with the Joker's leadership of the criminal underworld. Dent's face is burned during an explosion set up by the Joker which in the same time killed Rachel Dawes. He went mad and blame on Gordon, Batman and the Joker. The Joker frees Harvey from the hospital and convinces him to exact revenge on the cops, mobsters, Gordon and Batman. He takes the nickname cops had given him when he was in the Internal Affairs division, "Harvey Two-Face", and sets out to make things "fair", confronting the mobsters and crooked police who ruined his life by flipping a coin to decide their fates. Batman and Gordon arrange for Batman to take the blame for Dent's crimes in order to preserve Dent's image as Gotham's White Knight so that the Joker wouldn't win if anyone found out about Dent's corruption and madness.
