A lot has been said about the latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight. Especially Heath Ledger‘s performance as the Joker has been praised a lot. I became sceptical about the film because of all the hype.
This evening Silke and I went to watch The Dark Knight ourselves. I must say it deserved all the hype. The movie was exciting, disturbing and full of action. Heath Ledger was simply brilliant. He reached a level of malignant madness that will assure him a place in the midst of legendary movie villains.
All in all it was one of the two best Batman movies ever. It reflected the dark ambience of the comics perfectly.
