BEST. MOVIE. EVER. Seriously. Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker was PERFECT! I cannot put into words how spot on and just absolutlely perfect he played the role. That is really The Joker. He absolutely stole the spotlight. It's very sad that he died after giving the performance of a lifetime. I think he surpassed the job Sir Anthony Hopkins did with Hannibal Lector. The overall movie was definitely more of the dark comic book Batman, which how its supposed to be (ahem..Mr Burton). The story line doesn't leave much to be desired. My only complaint is that Maggie Gyllenhaal isn't hot, but her acting did the role plenty justice. I was curious how they would do Harvey Dent, and again, perfect. Whether or not they do another one is irrelavent, this one can suffice for a life. Read HHDX's review of the movie, its awesome. here's a quote :
"Ledger’s creation of a villain who is so capable of being so vile and endearing at the same time is truly a masterpiece, and is performance few are likely to ever forget."
** i saw it twice. Do your self a favor and see it in IMAX (i did the first time). I will see it a 3rd time
