A GREAT PIECE OF FILM!!!!
Seriously...when I first found out that Heath Ledger was to portray the Joker I thought it was the worst idea ever in casting history..however, when I saw the first pick of him in that strange yet menacing make up I knew ho would be amazing in it. However, all the actors did a great job as well. Christian Bale's Batman has proven to be the most grounded and realistic portrayal of a superhero of any kind. You get to see him conflict between his life as Bruce Wayne and as Batman and how it affects the people close to him. Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman do a great job as Alfred and Fox, while Aaron Eckhart's Two-Face is truly astounding...watching him start out as a young political hero in a horrible city and him ending as a tragic villian wanting revenge for the lost of his loved one. Even the Rachel Dawes is more enjoyable as a character (who is played by Maggie Gyllenhaal) However, I believe the true hero in this film belongs to Gordon (played by Gary Oldman). His version of Gordon is what a real cop should be. All the decisions and actions he makes in the film is motivated by his love of justice and to bring the peace for the people of Gotham. Overall, this is truly a great piece of film!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
