The Batman had too much BF%
The Lambo was to generic.

I gave the film 7.4 /10

Still not seen it yet matey, so I'm gonna get out of this thread quickly.

What did you think??

Personally thought it was good, but not as good as people are making it out...


Ledger was AMAZING...Deserves an Oscar for that performance, thought he borrowed of Jack Nicholson well...but still made it his own...loved the way the brutality of the Joker was delivered by him so well you actually laughed...but you could feel the malevolence
EG: The Magic Trick....Normally a scene like that would make you shocked etc...but he delivered it so well that when it happened everyone laughed....put that in another film you wouldnt laugh...like the pen scene in casino...its not a 'funny' scene....

and when he walked out the door with the grenades in his jacket...you could see him teasing them actually wanting to do it...Ledger for that alone will in my head be remembered as one of the finest actors of the 20th century

HOWEVER

Bale in Batman mode was AWFUL

What was with that voice he had when he had the outfit on? sounded like he was trying to be Michael Keaton


Personally thought they could have done more with the film, I felt something was missing the whole time

Ledger gave a great performance.
Make up on the ' two faces' ( aka my avater) was great.

i agree that heath ledgers performance was impressive...and tbh i did (before i watched the film)have a suspicion that he was only gettin so much recognition because he died.

i think bale as batman was still a good choice, his voice near the end of the film is very poor however, he sounded like a smoker who gets through 10packets a day.

i found myself laughing at most joker scenes, the magic trick was awesome, id personally rate it as 8.5 out of 10.

personally thought 'two face' was under used and would have been better off being used to setup for another film....I question whether his character actually died though

I thought when his charecter was shown that he was going to be put aside for the next film and was really surprised with what they done.

Bale's voice with the suit on was just bizarre, I dont know why they made it so husky.
Having re-watched Batman Begins it grated me that Rachel wasn't being played by Katie Holmes I always find when they re-cast so soon after the inital movie it annoys me.

Again I can only echo the other comments re Ledger's performance and the joker, likewise I didnt expect him to be as good as he actually was he truly made the film. The magic trick was a great example of when the whole cinema started laughing at something which was pulled off to a tee.

Really enjoyed it although a bit to long for me, loved the moral's which were involved.

Supermod

Everything I think was just spot on...apart from Batmans voice.
I would rather it was Joe Pasquales.

Now you see this pencil and now you dont!!! Taaaaaa Daaaaaaaaaa

I thought Bales batman voice was abit strange.....seemed abit out of place

I loved it, ledger was brilliant, altough it did seem to be a little bit long and the cinema i watched it in was really hot :x

Agree that batmans voice was awful but as far as i know it wasn't bale doing that, it was messed about with in the production of it, really don't know why though, it was laughable really

just thought id add another bit of the film which i found was one of the best bits of acting. It was when the joker sat down with the gangsters and when they laughed at him, the black guy calls him crazy, and the jokers reply, went something like "im not...no im not!" and it really did feel like the joker was upset with that comment, if you dont remember it, i recommend you type in "joker magic trick" on youtube and you will see it because its just after it...if you have a look, tell me what u think.

I agree that batman's voice was really annoying.

Especially near the end of the film when he is talking to Sirus and was still using the husky voice, even though Sirus know's its Bruce Wayne!

I saw it last night, really enjoyed it.

Yeah Batmans voice really was a bit strange, i also felt his fighting style and fight coreographylacked something in comparison to Batman begins.

One thing that i really didnt like was the motorbike, they completely lost and sense of speed when he was on it. It was very obvious that the bike was moving slowly and his cape was being flapped around to make it look fast. lol
