In his article “Batman’s take on 9/11 Politics: Drop the Fear Mongering” Michael Dudley interprets the film The Dark Night as endorsing the use of extraordinary measures —when necessary—to fight terrorism, but claims that the film’s true meaning is to ensure that the extraordinary measures end as soon as the threat ceases. He demonstrates that although “fear mongering” once had its place in the time period after 9/11 that time period has come to a close and we must reexamine the methods we use to obtain justice. Despite the fact that he thoroughly interprets the film, often times examining certain scenes at great length, his assertion relies heavily on the use of a pathetic appeal he makes very late in the peace in which he writes about how we still have the chance to save our morals and values, without ever directly correlating how the movie states this. This late appeal to readers’ emotions weakens his otherwise comprehensive analysis of the film.
