** On that note, while Heath Ledger did a fantastic job as the Joker and earned his Best Supporting Actor award, it's hard to deny Aaron Eckhart had a heart-wrenching performance as Harvey Dent....

* HellIsThatNoise: The Joker's leitmotif, an incredibly creepy rising whine of PsychoStrings (accomplished, appropriately enough, but scraping razor blades across piano strings).

* TrueArtIsAngsty: ''The Dark Knight'' is easily the darkest film adaptation of Batman made at it's release. It's also the most critically-acclaimed.

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Batman Begins'' is widely seen as a great reboot to the Batman film franchise. But the quality of ''The Dark Knight'', with its writing and Creator/HeathLedger's Oscar-winning performance as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker means ''The Dark Knight'' is widely seen as superior, and it also ended up being one of the highest-grossing films of all time as well as one of the most critically acclaimed superhero movies of all time.

** ''The Dark Knight'' is easily the darkest film adaptation of Batman ever made. It's also the most critically-acclaimed.
** [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane and the sheer terror he brings in the third movie]] might have surpassed it in the darkness factor....

* SoCoolItsAwesome: Whenever there's a discussion about what is the greatest superhero film of all time, ''The Dark Knight'' is a serious and heavy contender.
** More critics named ''The Dark Knight'' the [[http://criticstop10.com/best-of-2008/ best film of 2008]] than any other film released that year (including ''Film/SlumdogMillionaire'').

* CriticalResearchFailure: When Batman goes to retrieve Lau from Hong Kong, all the Chinese characters speak in Mandarin. Hong Kong is a Cantonese speaking region and unintelligible with Mandarin. While Lau could have been performing business in Mandarin, he continues to speak in Mandarin instead of Cantonese to the guards that attempt to rescue him.

* CompleteMonster: ComicBook/TheJoker (who describes himself as an "agent of chaos") is introduced by killing each of his goons during a bank robbery. The Joker proceeds to exploit the Mobís desire to be rid of Batman, casually murdering henchmen, politicians and police to force Batman to unmask himself. He also makes the accountant attempting to unmask Batman a target; ties a crime boss to a pile of money which he then burns; kills a gangster by making a pencil disappear...eraser-end first; blows up a hospital; attempts a PrisonersDilemma Scenario to get a boatload of civilians and prisoners to blow each other up; and, primarily by manipulating a SadisticChoice leading to Rachel Dawes's death, and then by {{mind rap|e}}ing an injured Harvey Dent in the hospital and is the driving force behind his transformation into Two-Face. The Joker's main motivation is fun, but he also wants to show that anyone and everyone can and will become a monster if pushed far enough (or even if just given the chance). He's proven wrong. Even so, he doesn't care; no VillainousBSOD, just an annoyed shrug and an attempt to blow the two boats sky high with his own detonator. All the while, the Joker states how heís just out to give Gotham a "better class of criminal". Alfred put it best when he said "Some men just want to watch the world burn."
