The Dark Knight is an absolutely wonderful movie of all time. It is not a simplistic tale of good and evil.Every single aspect of this movie is spectacular,amazes us, I mean everything: acting, story, characters, action scenes, anything. The Dark Knight Trilogy tells us about the beginning , fall, rise everything about Batman. The Dark Knight is about the fall of the Batman.
The movie starts with the robbery. A gang of criminals robs a Gotham City mob bank, murdering each other for less share of money, at last only Joker remains, escapes with all the money by a school bus.Batman, District Attorney Harvery Dent and Lieutenant Jim Gordan from an alliance to rid Gotham City from crimes. From the past one year the crimes have decreased due to Batman. The robbers take all the money from the bank who came from the underworld.
Mob bosses Sai Maroni, Gambol and the Chechen hold a videoconference with their corrupt accountant Lau, who has hidden all their funds from the remaining banks before Gotham police reach their money. He fled to Hong Kong. In between the meeting Joker came and warned them that Batman will rescue all the money from anywhere. Joker offers a deal that he would kill Batman in exchange for half of their money. When Joker kills Gambol, ultimately the mob accepts his offer
Batman finds Lau in Hong Kong and imprisons him in Gotham City to testify. Joker want to see the Batman’s face and threats strings of murder unless Batman reveal his face.Starting from the murder of Police Commissioner Gillian B. Loeb and Judge Surillo.
Joker’s next target was Mayor Anthony Garcia, but Gordan sacrificed himself to save the Mayor. Dent knows that Rachel is next. Rachel was Harvery’s girlfriend and Bruce’s (Batman) ex girlfriend. Bruce decided to reveal his face as he can’t let the Joker kill Gotham City people. But, In the conference Dent confessed that he is Batman which made him the target of joker and villain in the people of GPD(Gotham Police Department).
Joker attacked the police vehicles where they were taking Harvey Dent for custody, but eventually, Batman appeared from nowhere, which made Joker suspicious about the real Batman. Though Batman save Harvey and the police officers from the attack of the Joker but Batman was too suspicious on taking Joker lightly.
In the ceremony, we all saw Gordan take a shot in saving the Mayor, but when we saw Batman take control over Joker, it was Gordan who caught Joker. But as we know how clever the Joker is in the movie, he already made plans for killing Harvey and Rachel. On asking the address where he trapped both of them, Joker gave the address to Batman but he gave him the different one.
Batman was supposed to save Rachel and Gordan was supposed to save Harvey, but by the time Batman arrived there, he found out it was Harvey whom he was saving. Batman succeeded in saving Harvey but the explosion burned the half face of Harvey which later people called “Two-Face”. On the other side Gordan didn’t make it up on time to save Rachel whom he thought was Harvey.
Two-Face & The Hospital
Harvey was having treatment in the Gotham General Hospital. By the time when Harvey was having rest, Joker showed up and started burning the fire inside Harvey against those who betrayed Rachel whom he’s supposed to get married to and mainly against Batman.
All Joker wanted is to show Batman that the good one can too fall from good to bad and people after seeing Harvey’s doing, all will lose faith in each other. After burning the fire inside Harvey against Batman, he blew up the whole Gotham General Hospital.
Anyhow Harvey escaped the hospital and started hunting those people who betrayed Rachel’s trust and those who are in contact with the Batman.Now Harvel had an evil name called “Two-Face” which makes him the anti-villain of the movie. He killed all those people who betrayed Rachel and helped Joker in killing Rachel for money. Now the only two left were The Batman and the commissioner Gorden.

The Final Act
Not only Joker’s target was Harvey but during the climax i.e, the end of the movie, we saw all the people of Gotham were on two ships, one included the citizens and the second one included were the prisoners. Joker handed the detonator in both the ships so that one of the ships will blast from one of the own people of Gotham. This may prove that people are not selfless for their own life. But no one did what the Joker was expecting to do.
On the other side, Harvey kidnapped Gordan’s son so as to protect him, both Gordan and The Batman will come and he can kill both of them. But he got successful and he got killed.
Who Won at the End?
By looking at the end, many people you may have heard saying Joker won at the end, but it was Batman who won. Joker was almost won by making Harvey villain and Batman the hero who actually killed Harvey. This could’ve led to losing the faith in the people but knowing this, Batman turns himself villain in front of the people that prevent losing faith and humanity from the people.
