THE DARK KNIGHT is a superhero film based on the DC comic character Batman as he continues his war on crime in the city of Gotham.

Violence

Batman is seen repeatedly beating the Joker during an interrogation, but this is without both impact and injury detail. In another scene, a character pushes a man's head down onto a pencil, killing him; again, there is no impact or injury detail. During gun fights, people are shot down and killed but this is without sight of blood and injury.

Threat

There is a sustained sense of threat throughout. The Joker is shown continually threatening both individuals and large groups of people in various situations; in one scene, there is moderate knife threat as he plays a knife over both a man and woman

A character suffers injury to their face and parts of their skin have been totally burned away.
