Ok I guess?
Release Date: July 18, 2008
Director: Christopher Nolan
Who should watch this movie: Aspiring actors who don’t care about the story and only want to see Heath Ledger in his defining role. People who are curious what all the hype is about and are prepared to be disappointed.
When should you watch this movie: When you are bored and have time to watch a different and better movie after this one is done.
The sell: Is it a complete waste of time to see this movie? No, not really. Heath Ledger carries this movie from start to finish and it is compelling to watch. This movie would be a lot better if the storyline about Gotham’s savior was more convincing, but I cannot suspend my disbelief that a lawyer played by Aaron Eckhart is what the city really needs. If you, however, are able to do the mental acrobatics necessary to get behind Harvey Dent as a heroic character, by all means, watch this movie.
