Truck Flips Happened Before The Dark Knight

I'd just like to point out that The Dark Knight was not the first movie this decade to feature a big truck being caught up in wires and flipping over, okay?! Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines did it in 2003 and did it better.



This message was kindly brought to you by People For Recognition That Motion Pictures Existed Before The Dark Knight, a non-profit organisation made by people who like The Dark Knight but are rational enough to realise it isn't the greatest movie ever made in the known universe and that it didn't invent cinema. Thank you and good day.

How many minutes was Heath Ledger on the screen in The Dark Knight? Because that's how many minutes I liked it. Not just liked, but it was probably the best performance in a superhero film, EVER. The rest was pretty much a forgettable mish-mash.

In The Dark Knight they really did this on set, in T3 it's just CGI.

I find it hard to believe all the rabid obsessive fanboys are in love with The Dark Knight because they used practical effects or whatever.

Paul, I wouldn't go that far, but Ledger's scenes are always the best.

Actually Mierzwiak, I'm pretty sure most of the stunts in that T3 truck/car chase are practical rather than CGI...
