Teeter97 - The best Batman movie to date. No one thought that anyone could match Jack's portrayal of the Joker and those people are right. Heath didn't match it, he exceeded it. Heath's performance alone makes this movie worth watching. Great action, great acting, and thrilling all the way through.

Jim Carrier95 - The best acting job ever by Heath Ledger playing The Joker. You can never look at The Joker the same way ever again. This series of Batman movies keep getting better and will be untouchable by any other comic book movie series.
