    Torn....

    I want a hero that will hold my flashlight during the dark night. You know, I really wanted to like this movie. I know a lot of people do by the reviews and the way my friends talk about it, I just don’t know what I missed. This movie is actually pretty great. It is just not that great of a movie. Let me explain this to you. The movie has a great story and is creative, just would have fitted into a comic book better. It is rather stressful to sit down and watch the whole thing through. I don’t know, it’s just too dark for a relaxing watch, definitely good for a serious viewing though. Now, you might be thinking that I am the type that does not like gritty, dark films, but I have watched and enjoyed films such as: Flags of Our Fathers, Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, etc. Also, people come to love the most horrible character I have ever seen depicted in a movie of any type, the Joker. Now, I just don’t find it too humorous when you make a joke of a pencil going through some dude’s head, killing your hired hands, and blowing up hospitals. There is more, but I do not wish to spoil your afternoon with spoilers. (There is a reason they are called that.) What I meant earlier by the first sentence in this review, is that Batman seems to have lost his edge to kill or at least seriously threaten the head honchos. In the first installment of the series, he leaves his mentor on the track to his doom. In this film, he is reluctant to hurt that pretty face of the Joker’s we have all seen. Watch the film and prove me wrong, you will most likely enjoy it for at least the first time.

    The Nolan 4k remasters are not WB's best 4k effort

    Plagued with smatterings of heavy DNR and somewhat soft visuals, most of these Nolan Batman remasters are not the end all of UHD Blu-ray picture quality. The IMAX shots stand out, but Nolan insisted on not using the camera negatives as a basis for these new scans, so they're already somewhat gimped compared to what Sony and some other studios normally do. They really needed new soundtrack mixes since, again, Nolan is probably tone deaf. He's the Woody Allen of modern cinema sound. Stating these are the original theatrical mixes does not leave me with confidence given how poorly Nolan supervised mixes tend to sound. Dolby Atmos from a real professional audio team would have been far superior. Are they in some ways better than the original Blu-ray's? Yes, in terms of overall picture quality, but still somewhat disappointing when compared to most 4k catalog efforts put forth by Sony... nice, filmic transfers with a lovely amount of natural grain and detail... "A Few Good Men" is a standout in terms of 35mm 4k scans... and usually effective Atmos remixes too.

    4k REVIEW ONLY

    OK so if you don't own the bluray version already and have a 4k television/disc player then I'd recommend the buy. The picture is crisp and benefits from the upgrade. However if you already own The bluray I'd say you already have a great movie and buying the 4k version just isn't worth owning both. Nolan's movies are exceptionally shot and after watching both sides by side it's noticeable in difference but only slightly because the bluray holds up. I guess my point is ,if you've gone 4k it's easy to want to upgrade your favorites in a collection but not always affordable. 4k is still pricy for reissued previous releases so it sometimes feels like a cash grab. Sometimes movies benefit from the conversion like The Dark Knight but not always. Do you homework. In conclusion if you're on the fence and have the bluray I'd pass. If you're wanting to upgrade some great titles to 4k and this is in your collection then it's a buy. If you don't own The Dark Knight already and are buying 4k then get it.

    Good movie, weak DVD.

    My problem isn't the movie, it's with the lack of DVD features. I wanted to see behind the scenes footage and bloopers. You don't see those kind of bonuses anymore. Maybe directors are afraid it'll ruin the movie's image. I paid about $10 more for this second disc. Here's what that got me: - A montage of stills with a guy talking about what he was trying to convey with his music composition. - A montage of stills and some video about the evolution of Batman's suit and gear with director commentary. The creation of the "Bat-pod" was kind of interesting, at least. - 6 scenes from the movie in IMAX format. Yawn... - Production stills gallery. This is what the internet is for. - A bunch of fake news coverage. I've seen better on YouTube. - A digital copy of the movie. No thanks, I downloaded that months ago. These "features" could have easily been fit onto one disc.

    The best Batman movie ever? hardly

    I don’t get it, bale was not the best Batman and heath ledger was not the best joker. Bob Kane never meant for Batman to be too dark for kids to enjoy, and the joker so evil that heath ledger couldn’t emotionally handle it. I was let down in those regards, too psychotic and not enough heroism to the series. It was okay, but there are much better Batman actors and movies. Sorry bale and ledger.

    This movie was ok but definitely over hyped. the filming and cinematography was great in this film. Heath ledger was the only good part about the film. the rest of the cast did okay but didn't really stand out in their roles. The story had great ideas but wasn't the best delivered. A lot of the movie felt forced on the audience. overall was a decent popcorn flick but that is about it

    This movie is known all over American and known as an awesome movie and is overated for no good reason. The movie is just ok, but nothing special. The only great thing about the movie is Heath Ledger, the acting is good, the plot is good, and the action is good, but it just isn't the big great movie you would expect. Overall an ok movie, expected it to be better.

    Love the movie but hate the case. Returned it for the standard bluray version in a normal case, so I can properly store movie with all my other movies. Some may like these collectibles, and if you do, this would be great. Just not for me...

    Out of the 3 UHD Batman movies, The Dark Knight Rises is the best in terms of image quality. This one is good, but I believe the last one really hit the nail in the head.

    One of the greatest superhero films ever. The strange thing about this disc is that the widescreen ratio flip flops during certain scenes. I wish it had stayed in its original aspect ratio.

    Very different from the Batman I grew up with. The movie was action packed, but not what I was looking for.

    Pretty good movie, but Jack Nicholson was a waaaaay better Joker to me.
