Finally saw the movie last night. Wanted to see it unriffed before I watch the riffed version.
My Verdict, 4/5 stars.
Very good movie, lots of action, Ledger should get an academy award nomination and Bale is great. Liked the scene with the prisoner on the boat who asked the warden to give him the detonator so he could toss it out the window.
Not sure why all the fuss was on riffing this film. It was good, but not Citizen Kane or The Third Man or anything like that.
I am still puzzled WHY they had to pin Dent's murder victims on Batman instead of some random thug that either got away or was already dead. There had to be a better option.
I know the movie was only two hours and giving a fully realized character turning evil/insane event would be hard to fit in one moive, but damn, Dent went evil/insane VERY quickly.
