The Dark Knight.
The screenplay, the pacing, the performances, everything just came together perfectly and made it such a thrilling ride. The characters all found their worth and contributed highly to the overall plot, making it emotional. You were connected to all of them.

"We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher. To break barriers... to reach for the stars... to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we're still pioneers... that we've barely begun and that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us. That our destiny lies above us."
