      Glenn Kenny MUBI This may seem like faint praise, but about the highest compliment I can give Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight right now is to say that there were many long stretches during which I didn't even realize it was a superhero movie Dec 13, 2017 Full Review Ryan Gilbey New Statesman Too much psychology and not enough pop. It's possible to be too serious, you know. Jun 2, 2017 Full Review James Christopher Times (UK) You will feel utterly numb after the screening of The Dark Knight. The film is bleak and brilliant. May 31, 2017 Full Review Juan Pablo Russo EscribiendoCine With a memorable performance from Heath Ledger, masterful direction from Nolan, and bold storytelling, this film stands out as one of the best comic book adaptations in film history. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 10/10 Mar 11, 2024 Full Review Akhil Arora AkhilArora.com It doesn’t matter how many superhero movies its crosstown rival makes; it’ll never match the brilliance that Nolan delivered the same year Marvel began its infinite project. Firing on all cylinders … this is the most complete film Nolan has ever made. Oct 17, 2023 Full Review Christian Eulinberg InSession Film For the longest time, I’ve viewed this film as the Godfather of live-action Batman films. Sep 26, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
