Slappy McGee’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Some people just want to watch the world burn."
To me this is the BEST. COMIC BOOK MOVIE. EVER.
I have still never seen a comic book that I have liked more or that I have thought better captured the spirit of the characters and tone of a comic book feature. This movie never hits a false note.
And after 10 years, it still holds up as the Best Ever.
Every time I see Heath Ledger's Joker I am saddened at his loss. He brought something to the world of villains that has rarely been equaled (and never surpassed). Just brilliant work, inside and out. His attention to detail was astounding.
The direction by Nolan is equally astounding. Great action, beautifully framed shots and a sharp detailed eye for visual storytelling - as always. Just great, great direction. A hallmark of the franchise.
I could go on and on, but I will stop here. By now, you either love it or don't. My endless praise is not going to change anyone's mind on this film. Heh.
But if you don't like this film... you need to turn in your film geek card pronto. Or at the very least, block me. Please block me. I want nothing further to do with you.
WHY SO SERIOUS?
