Don't get me wrong, I jumped in my seat a few times during The Dark Knight, but I only had to actually look away once when they showed "Two-faced" and his new face. Overall, I really liked the movie, and was totally blown away by Heath Ledger and his Joker. He was definitely aware of Nicholson's version of the Joker, but created his own character and held it perfectly. He had an affected voice that worked to make him scary but not ridiculous. So much fun. I won't go through all the plot because knowing the story would give away too much. My big criticism would be that Christian Bale seems to growl all his lines as Batman, and his upper lip doesn't move because of the mask. But the other actors were all terrific - I LOVE Gary Oldman. And Maggie Gyllenhaal was an excellent replacement for Katie Holmes. You could follow her attitude and understand when she was pissed at Bruce and why. And as supporting characters Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine shone. They were memorable without being distracting. I highly recommend this one. 4 of 5 stars.
