Nothing I can say or anyone can say will do this film service, but I'll say whats great about it anyway. Although not the feel good film of the year it may be one of the best if not the best film of 2008. This stuff is Oscar worthy, the acting was great, of course Heath Ledger was absolutely amazing, if anyone deserves the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor it is him. He sent chills down my spine and made all my childhood fears seem as funny and goofy as the Apatow clan. It is sad that a talented actors life was cut short, if he is nominated and wins it'll be more sad that he couldn't accept the award for his magnificient role. The action scenes were terrific and beautifully made and the film is beautifully shot, every scene is great. Although lengthy, at 2hrs and 24mins(plus credits, 2hrs and 32mins) if you enjoy it'll seem short and you'll want even more. The story is tragic and depressing but when title comes up you'll wonder, WTF! just happened! you won't be able to not feel exhilarated, unless your part of the majority of people who didn't like it.
One of the best films of 2008 if not the best, it's genre defining and you thought comic book movies were for kids. It's thrilling, action packed, dark. The best comic book based film, best Batman film, best summer movie, maybe best film of the year, enough said, I'm trying but nothing said could do this service
In simple words "Absolutely Amazing"
