    i think you've gotta say that ledger was a pretty good actor (and his presence on the screen in any movie was phanominal ) but i was just saying "below" that he could have been given more character to play with,more insight to the joker,on how he became the joker like in the michael keaton batman movie where he starts out as a small time hood,even portrayed as the one who may have killed bruce wayne's parents. If the dark night is the first b.m. you see, you aren't gonna to know much at all about the joker character except what you imagine....please read my review ,it explains this. In this movie he basicly pops up out of nowhere like a jack in the box and goes on a rampage without rhyme or reason until batman puts him back in. Those of you that don't know what a jack in the box is ( a classic toy, a box u can hold in your hands,you turn the crank on the side until a clown pops out of the top with that clownish disturbing face that would scare the crap out of a young child. i don't see them around anymore, they were fading out when i was younger.)
    it's just true that they were going for an action packed movie.and people these days haven't cared much about story for a long time. i do like the fact that much of the stuff with the expolsions and car chases is real and not cgi. i rememeber seeing that new rambo movie and the blood looked cartoonish . i would rather see ketchup or that red looking fake blood (more fun) from the seveties than see cgi images. take a look at "death proof"dir. by Q. T.> ..real car chases! no that cgi crap.

    Like I say hype - the death of Ledger was utilised as publicity for the film, it was spun something rotten. If Ledger had still been alive then people would of made natural comparisons with his portrayal. But as we never like to speak 'ill of the dead' what were the critics going to say? It's like standing up at a funeral and saying this bloke was no good which is something that just isn't done. Ledgers death was quite 'convenient' for the film all things considered, film was finished and in the editing stages when the death happened. That has to influence the final edit and I am not even sure we are even seeing the film that was originally imagined. While certain people had their heart in the right place, Depp and Co for example donating money to Ledgers daughter Matilda, I just saw the rest profiting from Ledgers death.

    What amazes me is that the majority of people fall for all the hype, but then it seems to work time and time again. It even works with me to an extent, but then a film has to deliver on it's promise. So far the majority of films that are over-hyped never deliver - this is one of those films.

    "fallen lords" basicly replied below that the dark knight is over rated and i agree ,i do say it was an action romper stomper but far as the story goes,not that great,and believe it or not, ledger could have been better if character had been written better, ...see my review.
