Why watch this film?
Without a doubt, this is a Joker movie -- even though Batman is rightfully the protagonist. It's the villain that leads the action of the film, expanding the story and capturing the attention of the viewer. This is all based on a complex script and a memorable performance from Heath Ledger, who died before the movie was released in theaters and couldn't receive the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor that he was awarded by the Academy. The IMAX camera sequences are breathtaking, in a production that reaches the highest technical and creative standard seen among superhero films. There is also the whole issue of good and evil, chaos and order and all that which will be clear to you between the lines of the dialogues, just pay attention. It is a serious movie, yes, and there are those who say it is less fun precisely because of the seriousness -- but that's far from being a problem, right?
