The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight 2008 (PG-13)
The brooding Bat (Bale) is back (after 2005's “Batman Begins”) and has been making headway battling criminals in Gotham City. At least until super-freaky evil mastermind The Joker (Ledger in his last completed role before his untimely death) enters the picture. And if our hero didn't have enough trouble, good guy District Attorney Harvey Dent (Eckhart) is also having some personality issues. Caine, Freeman, and Oldman lend their talents again (as does director Nolan). Fortunately, boring Katie Holmes has been replaced by the more lively Gyllenhaal as Bruce Wayne's friend, ADA Rachel Dawes.
