Yes Heath Ledgers' performance was awesome and that just makes his death so much more tragic - what he should have gone onto. But is it just me or is everyone blinded by the Ledger glow - the movie plot fell apart half way through and from then on it simply became holy-difficult-choices-Batman the Joker has set up ANOTHER vast rig of explosives in the blink of an eye! I realize the Joker is an insane genius but when he keeps producing these highly elaborate explosive rig ups the movie started becoming tiring and too illogical even for Gotham reality. I mean - the guy burns all his money! So how did he pay the vast hoard of minions who slipped explosives through all the hospitals and lugged all the barrels into the bottom of the ferries?! And HOW did they get that past anyone anyway?! Ok its a movie but the story disappeared and DA Dent's sudden moral shift into Two face with the coin was unconvincing. Sorry - definitely not worth the hype. 3 stars for set, cinematography and good acting from all - shame about the plot.
