Before: Best movie ever on IMDB??
Plot: Dark as Batman should be.
Acting: Michael Cane, Garry Oldman and Morgan Freeman - spot on, as always. Heath Ledger - bloody good.
The girl: Maggie Gyllenhaal - WTF?? Suffice to say, I'd almost prefer to have her brother Jake make out with the Joker, Brokeback-Mountain-style, then her. Only good thing is she Spoiler (rhymes with "cries").
The action: Yes!
The bad guy: Oh yes!
Annoying: Look, visitors at the Cinema City: do not laugh as morons when the Joker tells a joke. This is not Die Hard. He's a *sad* clown.
Bottom line: Better than Godfather? No. But motherfucking good.
