Movie Review
The Dark Knight

MPAA Rating: PG-13 (for intense sequences of violence and some menace)

Review by Tasha (Age 14)  Review by Kaitlyn (Age 10)
Rating:   5 stars out of 5 Rating:   4 stars out of 5

Tasha's Review:

From the insane batmobile that transforms into a motor cycle to the long black cape and dark costume Batman comes to the big screen once again but this time bearing a different title, The Dark Knight.  With his trusty friend and butler Alfred at his side Batman is back but so are his rivals.  From the Scarecrow to the one and only Joker it seems as though this time Batman might have a real fight on his hands.

As many people know, Heath Ledger played the Joker and man did he ever do his job well.  His performance definitely was Oscar worthy for he not only used his humor but his great acting skills as well.  The little things he did to tie his character together were amazing from the infamous Joker laugh to the way he licked his lips made his performance all the more outstanding.

I am definitely giving this movie 5/5 stars because in my opinion it was the BEST Batman movie ever made.

Kaitlyn's Review:

I thought this movie wasn't too scary but it was also funny and suspenseful.  

My favourite character was Alfred the butler.  I liked him because I thought he was very wise.  I also thought that he knew the right things to say.

My least favourite character was Harvey Dent.  I kind of liked him at the beginning but at the end I stopped liking him because he started killing people by chance.

My favourite parts were when the Joker and the Batman were fighting because sometimes they said funny things to each other.  I also liked the parts when Alfred was talking to Batman about the pros and cons of his choices.

If I were to rate this movie I would rate it 4 out of five stars.
