I have finally seen a movie that places hand in hand the thrill of car chases, loud guns, and great special effects with that of a finely tuned script. Imagine that! Usually summer blockbusters are seriously lacking in anything resembling a plot line. It was good to sit enthralled in a movie theater again.
Heath Ledger absolutely walked away with this entire movie in a tightly clad black glove. What an incredible character, so deeply deeply wrong on many levels. The Joker is an instant classic villain not to be topped for some time to come. What a sad thought it is that we won't be able to enjoy an encore performance due to the quick demise of Heath Ledger. He'll be missed for his talent.
