    Even still, I don't think it will amount to anything regarding the next movie (if there is one). And it shouldn't.

    This coming from a man with Hellboy as his avatar.

    [Btw, is Hellboy 2 any good? The first one was okay, nothing amazing, but interesting enough to make me consider seeing the new one.]
    I thought it was outstanding. Of course I'm biased because Del Toro is by far my favorite director. Although I still think his best stuff is the Spanish language films he has done. Ron Perlman is a great Hellboy imo. Blue collar through and through. Someone on here said it was just eye candy, but per GDT that is "eye protein." Visually stunning. If you like lots of non-CGI creatures and outstanding set production, this is your film. I left the theater smiling.

    The movie is not perfect (no movie is), but I have no doubt in my mind that it is the best Batman flick to date (and I hold the '89 Burton film in high regard). It didn't feel at all to me like there was too much going on, unlike in Spider-Man 3, Batman and Robin, or Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. I was able to follow everything without any confusion as to what was going on, and none of the major characters seemed to have throw-away appearances, even though

    If there was one thing that underwhelmed me about the movie, it was the ending. It seemed a little rushed to me.
    I was probably too harsh in my initial assessment. I think getting tickets early to get decent seats, sitting through 20 min. of concussive previews and then a 2:30 film had me a bit fatigued towards the end.

    Huh. That's interesting. There doesn't seem to be much to the story at this point, though.

    Oldman was quietly fantastic just like he was in Begins.

    I agree with Indy's positive take on Ledger's Joker. I thought the same thing about the way he used his eyes and mouth and developed the pauses in his speech pattern. Small things that make a big difference if properly done (as they were here IMO).

    One of the things I worried about going into the theater was constantly watching the movie and thinking "That's Heath Ledger... and he's dead now". IOW, not being able to separate the character from the actor. That just wasn't a problem. This wasn't so much Heath Ledger playing the Joker as it was just The Joker.

    Meanwhile, the comments about Nicholson's Joker are spot on. It was always Jack Nicholson playing the joker. Every scene you knew how the Joker would react because it was Jack Nicholson and we've all seen Jack Nicholson before. Jack Nicholson plays Jack Nicholson first... and then the character.

    Ledger became somebody else for this role and allowed himself to get lost in it. ....IMHO.

    And Oldman was quietly fantastic and really gives the franchise a moral center.
