The Dark Knight
Power of choice…each of us is merely one choice from our darkest or most valiant moment. In the World, everything burns and some men just enjoy watching it happen. Corrupted by betrayal, lying and murder The Dark Knight is plagued by the misfits of society.
Gotham City does resemble a much different place than previously portrayed. Sun shines bright and there is a stint of hope for the future as the citizens of Gotham City rally together to eradicate evil with the help of DA Harvey Dent and Batman!
Joker wreaks havoc upon Gotham City as he challenges those who have yet to reach their darkest place. Priding himself in every evil connotation and drive to disrupt the peace…this man has no allies…the world is his enemy…or playground!
The Dark Knight is a fantastic film that many questioned the darkness revealed, in many conversations about the film-some Christians have doubted seeing The Dark Knight due to this fact. Please do not miss out on the redeeming values of this film! Recognize the influences, the drive of making a decision, and how people can choose to be different and not go with the norm. I was also impressed with a really neat portrayal of a Christian in the film-subtle-but it was there. Disclaimer-I would not take the kids along-action and violence last the entire time
So for this time-go see the movie-I won’t ruin it with a summary for you, but think about this:
Can the heroes in our life ever fall?
What drives people to darkness?
Don’t judge a book by its cover (including one that may appear good)?
What does it take to change society?
To what is it worth taking a stand?
