Dark Knight Brilliant According To Politicians

Batman Dark KnightIn my eyes, nothing makes a film more appealing than it getting berated for having an inaccurate certification. Black Knight, the latest Batman movie, is the most recent film to undergo these perils. The film has been rated a 12A which means that anybody can go watch it but that children under the age of twelve should be accompanied by an adult.

However, politicians Ian Duncan Smith and Keith Vaz believe that the 12A rating is not enough because of the graphic realism that is present in Dark Knight, unlike previous Batman films. Such is the current trend with this type of film, Dark Knight is a much grainier and perhaps realistic incarnation of the film.

Smith, who took his 15 year old daughter to the film described Heath Ledger’s Joker as being “a brilliantly acted but very credible psychopathic killer, who extols the use of knives to kill and disfigure his victims during a reign of urban terrorism laced with torture.” – So I think it’s reasonable to assume that I’ll be heading off to see that then. “Brilliantly acted but very credible” seems like an odd statement too.

The film is doing well in terms of complaint ranking, bagging an impressive 82 so far although it still has a little way to go before it reaches Casino Royale’s magic 100 figure. We also thought we’d use this post to try out some tabloid title writing techniques.
