Ledgers performance completely buries Jack Nicholson's as these two films bury the Tim Burton films.
I won't share more other than to say i doubt anyone who loves Batman will be dissapointed.
Good to hear, but I am not suprised to hear it.

Sticky this thread.

Great reviews are rolling in. Check out IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.

TDK will rule the summer. The Bats is in.

For some reason the film opened today (Wednesday) in Australia, a day earlier than films usually open.

Trust me, no emulating of anyone is going on. (Why Nicholson would think of his Joker as his own defining role is beyond me anyway). This Joker is a man without fear of any kind. Restrained when he wants to be, but never, ever less than threatening. His ingenuity is a shock and so balanced by both flakiness and focused power. An amazing portrayal, just amazing.

Aaron Eckhart is brilliant too, this is a career defining role in a way his normal nice-guy stuff has not been.

This is a very intense film. Very cleverly done.

Wow. This film makes BATMAN BEGINS (which I enjoyed a good deal) look like a mere preamble to this intense, richly dark epic. I must see it again in IMAX this time for those 'big' sequences. Ledger's performance wipes Nicholson's work off the face of Batman lore, and its a fitting if regrettable finale to his brief career.

A hastily-written late hours review is here -- but much better to see it than read about it! Not a perfect film, but it will grab you in the gut and refuse to let go easily... buckle up.
