Breakdown Analysis of the Chase Sequence in THE DARK KNIGHT

I loved Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, I watched it again recently for the first time in awhile and I was once again blown away by it's awesomeness! For me it's hard to find anything wrong with this film, I know there are mistakes, but I just don't really see them because of how entertainingly amazing the film is. There are some people out there though that like to pick apart movies and find something to tear apart. This is exactly what critic Jim Emerson has done in a feature on Indiewire called In The Cut. In it he breaks down the action scenes shot by shot showing us what the filmmaker did right and wrong. He did this with the chase sequence from The Dark Knight, which is in my mind one of the coolest chase sequences in film. That being said he does bring up some very good points in his analysis, but I still think it's a badass chase sequence.

Check out the video analysis below and tell us what you think! Do you think Nolan's chase sequence in the film is a mess?
