The Dark Knight Movie Summary
This sequel to Batman Begins picks up nine months after the first film. A new threat has entered the Gotham City crime scene, the Joker. The harlequin hooligan is robbing banks, but only banks that have the money of the mob. The mob begins to get desperate. The combination of the Joker and Batman is having an effect on their business operation.
Meanwhile, Batman, the new District Attorney Harvey Dent, and Lieutenant Jim Gordon form an uneasy alliance to rid Gotham of the remaining elements of organized crime in Gotham. They plan to irradiate the mob money and track it. However, Dent is concerned about corruption in Gordon’s police force, and Gordon is concerned about leaks in Dent’s office.
Despite their differences, Dent’s idealism impresses Bruce Wayne, and he offers to support his career. Wayne believes that Dent can become the symbol that Gotham needs, and Wayne could finally give up being Batman and lead a normal life. However, Wayne’s plans hit a snag when his girlfriend of choice, Rachel Dawes, is currently dating the district attorney.
