I liked this film, but I don't think its a masterpiece like a lot of people say.
A terrifying and brilliant final act by Heath Ledger's Joker makes for this near-perfect action film one of the best from Hollywood in the last ten years. Yes, the writing's brilliant, the Batman/Bruce Wayne character was well-fleshed out, and Nolan's realistic adaptation are all there to bring us a film so good we can forgive it's two-and-a-half hour long. But minus Ledger, all these might become pointless.

one of the best action movies in the history of film .
Absolutely fantastic performance by Heath Ledger elevates this film above the vast majority of other films in this genre.
I'm still pretty opposed to Nolan but after his recent films this one really isnt so bad. I still find it preachy and the action sequences badly shot and Nolan's attempts at 'realism' counterproductive. But I think by comparison this one has enough genre staples to make for passable entertainment and give the film some humanity where TDKR feels sterile most of the time. Has redeeming qualities.
Nolan, molla Batman. A me i tuoi film non piaceranno comunque, ma a quelli che apprezzano Nolan, sì
An engaging struggle of fascist ideologies that thrills and entertains at the same time.
I finally watched this and it was as good as everyone told me it would be. The only thing that bothered me, was that it was 2.5 hours long.
GOD GIVE US BACK HEATH LEDGER...U CAN TAKE ANYTHING U WANT...I'LL TRY GIVING IT TO YOU...
Best Superhero movie of all time, even ahead of The Avengers and Spiderman 2. Although Christian Bale did ok performance as Batman, the majority of the praise goes to Heath Ledger playing the Joker with such awesomeness. The movie is a remarkable thriller about finding out what is going to happen next between the Joker and Batman for the battle of Gotham City. A must watch for everyone
An exhilarating viewing experience that manages, unlike its successor, not to buckle under the weight of its own ambition. That being said, this film's status as a great work of art does not hold up to scrutiny. Ledger's performance as The Joker deserves the praise it has received.
best dc superhero movie ever. especially when you put heath ledger on it as the joker.
I tend to ignore most of the super-hero movies that come out, however I went to see this one on the cinema and just re-watched it a couple of days ago and is still a very powerful movie. It's so well made and with such a strong concept that the fact that there's this man dressed like a bat doesn't even look ridiculous. The Joker and his fascination with chaos and anarchy are the driving force, but I loved Two-Face!
what a masterpiece. I remembered leaving the theater with strongest urge to look up to sky and scream, "WHY, Heath, WHYYYYYYYYYYY??????"
Has anyone seen it in Imax 3d?
I liked it, even in its clearly blockbuster conception.
standing ovation to Heath Ledger.
Bale's Batman becomes a one-dimensional, ragey beast, employing an over-the-top vocal delivery that becomes almost laughable. Luckily, Heath Ledger gives a scintillating performance as the tortured, twisted, and fun loving Joker.
This is probably one of the best super-hero movies that has ever been made. Nolan turned what was becoming a terrible franchise (think of Clooney doing Batman) into an exciting movie (even though "Batman Begins" was far from this one). People always talk about Ledger's performance (which is outstanding, of course) but the whole movie has a high level of quality.
''I Like This Film Because Of Heath Ledger's Performance As The Joker.''
Also, I was guessing what Maggie Gyllenhaal was doing in this movie. Still have no answer.
This role for Bale had to be like a holiday comparing to his other works, a bit to easy for such a actor. Ledger was at its highest greatness, absolutely perfect character and the chosen actor.
Watched again recently for the first time since seeing it in the cinema, really didn't work for me this time. The only compelling moments were when Ledger was on screen, the rest was dull and for a film that takes itself so seriously it's strangely devoid of any emotion. The only way I could see myself watching the DKR is purely out of curiosity to see the mess.
