    " and whether it is overrated or not, is up to you to decide. that is merely on the scale of your own expectations."

    Subjectivity explained pretty well there. Reviewing the comments for the top 5 films on this site, and all of them descend into similar over/underrated dichotomies...

    why do pseudo-intellectual douchebags try to pass themselves off as intelligent movie critics by dumbing down the plot to make the film sound average. if you're going to put the dark knight up against any superhero movie, you're going to find that in all aspects, the dark knight surpasses it by a landslide! how does that make it bad? if it can be considered #1 in its category?

    people often rely on movie conventions to criticize this film, often missing the essential point.
    "bruce wayne was a dull, flat character."
    bruce wayne, was not the primary focus, his relationship with characters were their to define the motive of his alter egos actions. his alter ego, being the primary focus as a character, symbolically. the dark knight was a symbol for the actions of all throughout the film, and the relationships were their to accompany the actions of the people in their final decisions.

    "it's just another action blockbuster."
    be that as it may, an 'action blockbuster' title should not do its part to discount the dark knight from its scaling on whether it is good or bad.
    is 'usual supects' just another crime thriller?
    is 'the good the bad and the ugly' just another western?
    of course not, in their respected genres they're high calibre and create a well-told story with its own unique setting, character archs and tools. you can't ostracize and attack a movie just for the field it chooses to fight in, if it does it so well.

    the dark knight is one of the best superhero films in recent memory, and whether it is overrated or not, is up to you to decide. that is merely on the scale of your own expectations. but saying the movie is bad, without actual reason, is indefensibly stupid. you don't have to like it, but you casting imaginary stones won't coax peoples original opinions or create this intellectual illusion that you so desire.

    there's more criticisms that people have adressed that would take a lot of time and effort to get into, but i'll draw the line at where i have.

    (this comment is aimed at some of the bad TDK reviews/comments that i've read on this site.)

    Best superhero movie I've watched. But it doesn't change the fact that it's way overrated boohoooo. It also need not be that long.

    Hats off to Heath Ledger.
