Quite possibly, the best super hero movie ever

I didn't know what to expect when I went to see this film the first time in the theater. (It's so common for a sequel - if you want to call this that - to not be nearly as well done as the original.) This film FAR outshone its predecessor! It was better in every way,...
I didn't know what to expect when I went to see this film the first time in the theater. (It's so common for a sequel - if you want to call this that - to not be nearly as well done as the original.) This film FAR outshone its predecessor! It was better in every way, and that's quite an amazing feat, considering how good "Batman Begins" was. (I loved the review by the "Most Helpful Positive!" He/she hit it right on the head: two lousy things were cleared up in Dark Knight. No more Katie Holmes! That in itself is worth a happy dance. And much more Gary Oldman! Another happy dance. Seriously though, when it looked liked Jim Gordan had been killed I said "I'm never watching this movie again." Then he crept up on the Joker and saved the day - that was the best moment to me.) The preformances were outstanding, and the way the editors handled such a huge cast of characters was perfect. We saw each character frequently enough to remember exactly what was going on with them, but infrequently enough so that we could keep up with what everyone was doing. The pacing throughout was fantastic. Maggie was a great replacement for Katie, and she was a much more believeable DA. To conclude, this movie is not one to be missed, by anyone. (That means people who like Batman or don't like him!) I watched it four times at the theater and once so far on DVD and I still haven't had enough!

EH...

ok so i waited to see what the "hype" was all about... and i have to say i was let down... not only did this movie drag on but the plot was weak... the action was maybe a good 28 min all together in the movie... batman sounded like he needed a ricola they was he talked....

Heath Ledger did an AMAZING job as the joker... he was wicked awesome and did a great job playing a sick and twisted character, the scene where he walks out the hospitol and the remote didnt work he just looked so crazy and the way he walked and talked... really showed how great as an actor he was, he will be missed... but all in all it was eh ok nothing great i began to get bored twards the end of the movie... sction wasnt what i thought drama was good.. the only reason why this movie went ape is b/c Heath died... sad but true...

    Horrible.

    I actually went to go see this opening weekend due to all the hype about how great it was. That was my first mistake. My second mistake was sitting there and watching this movie and not asking for a refund. Same stupid effects and a boring story line. It was one of those movies that takes 2 hours for something to happen, and then when it does you were sorry it did. I kept thinking through out the movie that it would end shortly and then another hour of nothing would happen. If you really wish to see this movie wait until someone else buys it and go watch it at there house. You can laugh at them for wasting their money.

    Good escape from life movie but the extremely poor soundtrack ruined it.

    All other categories aside the extremely poor soundtrack quality ruined the movie. The choices were eardrum splitting megadecibels or too low to hear with nothing in between. The viewer has to keep a fast hand on the mute and volume control buttons to the point where it just isn't worth the reminiscent of TV commercials audio harrasment.

    Shame because the rest of it scored high but not high enough. Mine went in the trash can.

    Worse Batman Movie Ever

    I am 83 years old and have watched just about all of the Bat Man Movies ever made and this is the first one that disapointed me. The plot is bad and the acting is worse. The moveie simply has no redeaming quality. I am not sure I will buy another Bat Man movie.

    Bet you don't use this.
