Enthralling...An ambitious, full-bodied crime epic of gratifying scope and moral complexity, this is seriously brainy pop entertainment that satisfies every expectation raised by its hit predecessor and then some.
Full review
by: Justin Chang
Beyond dark. It's as black -- and teeming and toxic -- as the mind of the Joker. "Batman Begins," the 2005 film that launched Nolan's series, was a mere five-finger exercise. This is the full symphony.

Heath Ledger is amazing in this film, so are all the actors for that matter, but once you get over these performances you soon start to realize how poorly written this movie really is. I was disappointed

This film is close to the original magazine in harshness, before mainstream got a hold of it and made it nice. This movie is surprisingly good and not like any other batman movie I've seen come out. Not for young kids at all.
