An amazingly rich thriller that will still be memorable years down the road. I believe this to be the deepest comic-book movie ever made, certainly the darkest. Although I slightly preferred Wall-E (my favourite movie of 2008 so far), I believe that this movie will get Oscar recognition. Obviously Heath Ledger for his literally insane performance, but I think we could very well see a Best Director and Best Picture nomination as well. It is so much more than just a Batman movie. It is so much more than just a comic-book movie. It is so much more than just a summer blockbuster. This movie and Wall-E are going to be the best two mainstream movies of the year. I don't even remember the last time my favourite two movies of the year were BOTH mainstream. After the awful summer of movies we had last year, it is a welcome relief. A combination of great, great action sequences with a thoughful and engaging story that NEVER slows down. Huge accomplishment for both Nolan and Ledger alike. And heck, the rest of cast was pretty picture-perfect as well. Most definitely recommended.
