This week we’re covering the greatest movie Batman movie ever made — perhaps the greatest superhero movie of all time: The Dark Knight.

Today we’re answering two different questions. Since we know the Joker is doing all kinds of illegal things I tallied up all the different crimes to determine HOW MANY life sentences. Because there is a lot of murder. For Batman, we answer the question, can he use the self-defense justification to fight crime? Or is Batman just as guilty as the criminals he fights?

Who is legally responsible for all the death and destruction?

Find out today!

Stay until the end when tally up the sentences for both the Joker and Batman.

Have you ever watched a movie and thought “that looks illegal.” It probably is! Welcome to Laws Broken, a series on LegalEagle where I tackle your favorite movies and show you how legally irresponsible they are.

As a lawyer, it’s hard for me to watch movies, because I’m constantly thinking about how the main characters are breaking the law or opening themselves up for civil liability. But my pain is your entertainment!

Got a non-legal movie that seems illegal? Let me know in the comments!

I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous from a legal perspective. Today I'm taking a break from teaching law students how to crush law school to take on the movies and TV.
