Assignment #20 The Dark Knight Critical Review

You are the one and only expert of your opinions.  Write about your specific opinions about the specific elements from The Dark Knight that stood out to you.  You can write about specific characters, actors, overall character development, dialogue, cinematography, story, plot, etc.

Include a picture relating to The Dark Knight (movie poster, etc.) to begin your review just like I did for this post.

 This critical review will be written in paragraphs and be at least 200 words.  
When referencing character’s or actor’s names make sure you spell them correctly with capital letters beginning each name.

1)  Begin your critical review with a general synopsis of the story (short summary- 2 sentences maximum) followed by your overall opinion of the film.  Do not include spoilers anywhere in your review. 

2-4)  Go in to detail about your opinions and the film elements that support your opinions.  Write about each element in its own paragraph. Include examples from the film to support your opinionsFor example, if you liked/disliked the character Bruce Wayne/Batman (Christian Bale), you could write a paragraph about what you liked/didn't like about the character citing examples from the film. (3 paragraphs minimum).  There are many specific things you could focus on in your paragraphs.

5)  Conclude your review with a final paragraph summarizing your opinion and giving a final recommendation (thumbs up, thumbs down, 3 out of 4 stars, C+, etc.).  You choose how you will grade each film, but use the same grading system for each film review.

This outline will give you a 5 paragraph critical review.  You can write more than 5 paragraphs if you so desire.
