Most Memorable Moments From The Dark Knight


The Top Ten

1 The Interrogation Scene

Batman and The Joker are alone in a room with a only a table between them. Joker tells The Batman that in order for him to win and stop the madness going on in Gotham, Batman must break his one rule (murder). - Hernandez1614

One thing I noticed from this scene was a camera man in the glass. For a split second, you can see the camera man in the glass to the right just as Batman picks up the Joker and slams him into the wall.

Perfectly illustrates one of the, if not the best hero vs villain, good vs evil, right vs wrong relaftionship in history. Batman and the joker

2 The Bank Heist (Intro)

Best intro for movie of all time... this was such a amazing intro for this masterpiece. - DarkKnight2005

One of the best intros to any movie I've seen! I love how none of the school buses notice that there's one coming out of the bank haha

A well filmed sequence by Christopher Nolan. I never would have guessed Joker was one of the guys in masks. - Hernandez1614

"I believe, that whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger."
Best superhero movie quote ever! - 331433

3 The Chase

This part is full of great moments. The Bazooka, The Truck flipping, Joker challenging The Batman to run him over. - Hernandez1614

This scene took place in Chicago which is my favorite city - Ajkloth

Best thing is the writing on the truck: S laughter is the best medicine...

4 The Last Monologue When the Batman Disappears

"Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight" - Ajkloth

I can't think about it without getting chills.

5 Joker Crashes the Party

"Where is Harvey Dent? " - Hernandez1614

6 Harvey Dent Becomes Two-Face

A "do nothing else" politician becomes a murderer. Mr. Dent broke an oath to end crime in Gotham which means not everyone else can make promises kept for themselves and others.

When he turns his face and reveals his burnt face, it surprises you. - Hernandez1614

7 The Hospital Explodes

Joker walks away as the hospital explodes. - Hernandez1614

8 Joker's Magic Trick

Funny way to officially introduce The Joker. It also shows that he's really insane. - Hernandez1614

This scene made me laugh when I was 7 years old - Ajkloth

I'm gonna make this pencil disappear, tada! It's gone...

Truly hillarious

9 "You Wanna Know How I Got These Scars?"

The Joker explains to people how he got the scars on his face. - Hernandez1614

10 Two-Face shoots Maroni's driver after a coin toss and the car flips

The Contenders

11 Two Face Tells Gordon to Tell His Son It Will Be Alright
12 Joker Riding In the Cop Car With His Head Out the Window

This part is pretty symbolic as The Joker mentioned earlier that he's just a dog chasing cars and that he wouldn't know what to do with one if he caught it. - Hernandez1614

13 Rachel Dies

All the other scenes are amazing.
But for me when Bruce says " But Rachel, Alfred? "...
I die every time I hear that. there is so much emotion and agony that Christian Bale has expressed in 3 words. I personally was extremely joyful when Rachel dies but it was Bruce's conversation with Alfred which always reduces me to tears.

14 The Joker kills Brian on the news flash.

And what's so scary about it is that we never got to see what happened to Brian after the camera went off.

This scene still makes me concerned about how kids are going to react to this film.

Probably the scariest scene in the movie.

The first time I watched this movie, I didn't realize the Joker killed him - Ajkloth

15 Two Face Reveals His True Motives To Batman
16 Hospital Scene
17 Commissioner Gordon Gets Shot

I actually thought he died. Fortunately, he didn't. - Hernandez1614

Faked death for his family's safety - Ajkloth

Didn't Bane shoot him in TDKR also?

18 I Want My Phone Call
19 Joker Clapping His Hands
20 I Won't Kill You, But I Don't Have to Save You

Batman Begins.

21 "And here we go."
22 Madness is Like Gravity
23 "I'm not wearing hockey pads."
24 Escaping the Prison
25 Bane's Tears

This is not the dark knight! Dark knight rises!

It's a moment so subtle you may miss it. As Thalia tells her and Banes' story of survival in the same prison Bruce suffered in, Banes' iron will cracks, and a single tear escapes. A small yet powerful moment that reveals the man behind the monster.
