The Best Scenes From 'The Dark Knight'

Vote up the best scenes from 'The Dark Knight.'

The Batman character has been around since the 1940s and portrayed in so many ways that it's often hard to pick a favorite. On top of that, with each iteration of the Dark Knight comes a new interpretation of his villainous rogues' gallery, and all kinds of new character dynamics. One of the most highly acclaimed versions of the Batman story is The Dark Knight featuring Heath Ledger's rendition of Joker. Ledger's portrayal of the classic villain even won him a posthumous Oscar for best supporting actor. 

With acting like that, it's no wonder some of the best scenes of the film are centered on Joker's appalling mischief. The Joker hospital explosion and bank scenes are some of the most notable, but other Dark Knight scenes make this movie the dark masterpiece it is.

Some scenes are memorable because they offer a more in-depth look at a character; some are awe-inspiring because of the visual effects; and some can be considered the best based on dialogue alone.
