The Dark Knight vs. Past Batman Movies

It is no surprise that The Dark Knight had the biggest opening weekend of all time. It is a truly great movie. But how does it compare with past Batman movies? Here is a gallery that shows the visual differences between the most recent Batman adaptations and the older ones.

Also, pulled directly from the New York Times, here are some quotes from these movies, as well as earnings, lengths, etc.:

Batman: The Movie (1966)

“Some days you can’t get rid of a bomb.” – Batman

Time and Rating:
105 minutes with a PG rating.


“Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moon light?” – Joker

Time and Rating:
126 minutes with a PG-13 rating.

Batman Forever

“Holey rusted metal, Batman! The ground, it’s all metal. It’s full of holes. You know, holey.” -- Robin

Time and Rating:
122 minutes with a PG-13 rating.

The Dark Knight

“Some men aren't looking for anything logical. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.” – Alfred

Time and Rating:
152 minutes with a PG-13 rating.
I think that The Dark Knight is the best Batman movie, and the best superhero movie, of all time. Click the source link below to read even more comparisons.

It's hard to find what is wrong with a movie that seems so well crafted and put together. Well let's start by saying that the Dark Knight is very boring and messy.

The plot is incoherent, with too many undeveloped subplots. The movie tries to be realistic but logic has no place anywhere. It tries to be dramatic but the drama is manufactured, out of place, and doesn't build up from anything. Lots of poor philosophical monologues going nowhere.

It's obvious there is not comparison between those films, owing to the fact the epochs and the resources are extremely different. but they have something in common, both were successful in their epochs. said...

So, I do not really suppose this is likely to work.
