Visually stunning, especially if you can get the chance to see it in an IMAX theatre. Too violent for a 12A certificate. Too long.
Heath Ledger does a good job of chewing the scenery.

It's certainly well worth seeing, but the IMDB rating is OTT at the moment. It'll probably adjust downward after a while when the hype has died down.

decent enough movie and Heath Ledger does a very decent Joker (Posthumous Oscar? mmm .. not that good imo)
Maggie Gyllenhaal is never in a million years going to be enough eye candy for a part like that...she's a baw faced howk.
Film is a bit long but very well done 7/10?

christian bale and michael kane are in it as well...look out for them ;)



edit:
having said that about maggie, I probably wouldn't object to being this wee fella

I wasnt going to get involved in this thread as I am a massive Batman fan and didnt want spoilers etc.

But the shear weight of presence offered by the words "baw faced howk" were enough to get me posting!! pmsl
