Why so serious? Actually, the seriousness of these new Batman films are why they are so good. Long gone are the cheesy lines by Arnold or the goofy bright set locations. This film is dark and gritty. The Oscar-winning performance from Heath Ledger was incredible. His Joker is one of my favorite movie villains. The action is really good straight from the start. My biggest complaint is the switcheroo they pulled with Katie Holmes and Maggie Gyllenhaal but that is a pretty minor complaint.
