Critic Review - BET.com

Heath Ledger is Diana Ross and these other kids are The Supremes. Believe the hype, Mr. Ledger as The Joker is categorically brilliant. The late-great actor turned another Batman movie into a riveting film that will be Oscar worthy only because of him.

Clay Cane, you'll probably never read this, or care, because your ego, I'm guessing, is as out of wack as The Joker's psyche, but your statement, "The late-great actor turned another Batman movie into a riveting film that will be Oscar worthy only because of him." Is senseless, a blind, rookie-critic review, a statement that you thought 'sounded' bold in it's delivery, but is completely disregarding the good merit's of Christopher Nolan and his entire crew. The script, the direction, the corparate push, was that made by Ledger? I thought his performance was great just like the next guy, but that's all you're going to be if you keep posting blatten reviews like this, the next guy down the list.

I'm sorry but I agree with the critic. Never have I been so disapointed in a movie than this one except for the Masterful job by the late, great Ledger.

I respectfully disagree. It's not that the rest of the movie sucked, but Ledger's performance was one major factor that contributed to the huge success of it in the first place.

Lets say hypothetically that we take out Health Ledger from the film??? What is left? Oh yeah, thats right - A pathetic unauthentic deep voiced clown called Christian Bale as Batman, a B - grade actor named Aaron Eckhart, an absolutely useless narrative driving the film, Clown - like, children's program action sequences that were so boring I could cry, ITS A BULLSHIT ACT!!!! the best thing apart from Ledger was Gary Oldman, who had the hardest part in the film (playing the straightest character whilst still being charismatic) you guys are all such naive suckers - "Oh Heath! the acting! Oh the character of the joker! Wooowwww! - Can anyone look past the joker apart from me? Your blind as bat shit. The film is average to say the least! It takes more than one best acting Oscar to save a film
