Certifications!..The BBFC certified the film with a rating of PG 12,The Motion Picture Rating certified it with PG 13because for the intense sequences of violence andaction, some sensuality and language
My Thoughts:I would rate the film a rating of PG12 because there is some sortof violence and offensive language spoken. So therefore a childmust be supervised with this sort of behaviour. Also because all othe BATMAN movies are aimed at this audience group.Also because even though the film contains some source ofviolence, the violence is not that extreme like American History Xwhich delivers a searing scenes of rape, pervasive language,strong sexuality and nudity. American History X was rated 18.I didn’t get the chance to watch this movie of the Batman sequel,but from the reviews and posts I have read from different sources Ihave a sense of thinking that it looks absolutely awesome!Especially after watching the trailer, it gets all the ticks from me; itsgot the thrill, suspense, action, ad reline everything!!
Critics!New Yorker film critic David Denby revealed "Do the Movies Have aFuture?“Commenting on based on all of the Batman films, Denby questionedwhether the film was just another predictable heroic crime movies.The audience theory he used to back his points up was the culminatetheory; the audience getting used to the predictable crime, thrill anddrama.
Uses And Gratifications Theory4.EntertainmentThe Dark Knight comes under Entertainment in the uses and gratificationstheory. The movie is pumped up with lots of suspense and thrill,entertaining it’s audience in every way to make them want to feel a partof all of the action and macho.
