I saw the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight the other night, and man, it was amazing. The hype is valid. Heath Ledger's performance is beyond wonderful, and Maggie Gyllenhall does a lot with a thin role. Ledger's Joker takes over every scene, slowing down the action, making you forget the makeup, that it's Heath Ledger, that he's dead. You only realize at the end how sad it is that he's gone and can't reprise his masterpiece. Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are great as usual, and don't get the praise they deserve for the fine acting they always deliver.
I recommend this movie for everyone over age 10.
