    Only if you've seen it....

    I always though Fight Club and The Machinist were kind of similar.

    I can see where you'd get that but I don't agree 100%.

    The Dark Knight is like a bizarro Spider-Man 2.

    Hero realizes that being a superhero sucks, and considers retiring.
    He wants to be with the girl he loves, but can't, because of his superhero life. A new man shows up in his loved one's life, who wants to marry the girl he loves.

    Only, TDK is different than Spider-Man 2, in that..

    The hero doesn't win the heart of the girl he loves.

    The hero fails to save the girl and she dies

    At first I thought only the one scene where it shows Bourne volunteering but I can see other similarities.


    Kind of . They both have a similar feel and the twist but they still feel very different to me .
