Well, it lives up to its hype. But I was more interested to see if Heath Ledger‘s performance as the Joker was really as good as people were saying, or just some Hollywood PR man’s attempt to sell the film. I’ve got to say that Ledger steals the film for me. It’s a great performance as the Joker. Dark, funny and very sinister. Should he get an Oscar for it? Probably and I think he will.
