This film doesn't just live up to the hype...it blows away your expectations.
Heath Ledger's Joker is one of the best performances i've seen in a long time - menacing, unhinged with a wicked sense of humour. But that's not to say that the rest of the cast didn't all give excellent performances as well. The action scenes are thrilling, adreniline fuelled and jaw-droppingly excecuted. There is powerful imagery that will stay with you for a long time too, PG-13/12A be damned, this isn't a kid's film. This is hard-hitting, occasionally nightmarish stuff, and it's brilliant. The fact that it goes on for 2 and a half hours and leaves you wanting more is a testament to what Nolan and team have created here. Barely putting a foot wrong, The Dark Knight is without doubt one of the best superhero films ever made, if not the best of all.
