Loc: It's all about the location.
It's only a matter of time before Robin and the Joker come out of the closet...one wears leotards with a bondage mask and the other guy wears more makeup than the members of Kiss and Motley Crue combined.

I didn't like it. After renting it I doubt that I'd buy it. I found it too long and it couldn't keep it's focus. Instead of a single strong plot, it was as if they tried too hard to string a number of different plots together and the pieces just didn't quite fit. It seemed clumsy. Not to mention there was like 6 or 7 climaxes in the movie. As the movie stumbled along I started feeling more fatigued rather than excited as the ending approached. As far as Batman movies go, I enjoyed Batman Begins much more. And compared to other action movies, I also enjoyed Iron Man and Transformers ('07) more than this one.

I've seen movies like that, too. My wife doesn't like me to watch them. I don't remember anything involving batman, though....

Regarding the last sentence, you my want to try more green M&Ms...

Thats interesting. I enjoyed the more complicated plot. Then again, I like to read books that follow parallel plots as well.

I loved the way the plot was connected and thought it fit very well and the Joker was extremely entertaining to watch. My only knock on it however is that some character development was a bit rushed especially with one character in particuliar in which I think could have been developed into the plot of the next Batman movie.

I agree, Dr. House. I thought the Harvey Dent character could have been stretched out a bit more to make the transformation just a bit more plausible.

It will be interesting to see where they go with the villains in the next movie. IMO it will be hard to top the acting performance of Heath Ledger and Aaron Eckhart.

**Warning Spoiler Alert***

If they had known that one villain would not be available for the next film, they might have given the other a longer lifeline. Now we must go back to the Penguin...
