    "The Dark Knight is easily the best Batman superhero movie to date. The setting, the actors, the dialogue, all perfect. Heath Ledger's role as the Joker is one of the most bone chilling on screen villians to ever be seen. The only thing that isn't perfect about this movie is Christian Bale's odd choice for Batman's voice. A must see for all fans of the genre."

    "Joaquin Phoenix had some pretty big shoes to fill after the incredible performance and interpretation of the Joker by Heath Ledger. Is it better? I think they are equally great that tries to explore different sides of the iconic character's psyche. Regardless, it's a movie like Joker and warrants a watch or re-watch again."

    "Terrific movie! Batman faces off against the Joker and his minions to save Gotham from those evil doer's. This movie has a ton of action and thrills. Also the acting is top notch especially spellbinding is Heath Ledger's The Joker. In his last major film role he knocks it out of the park with his portrayal of the Joker."

    "After watching The Dark Knight, I firmly believe this is Christopher Nolan's magnum opus. All of the performances from the actors are masterful, and while I occasionally forget his other works, The Dark Knight always left a strong impression on me, and that's why I think this is one of the best movies of all time."

    "The Dark Knight is one of my favorite movies of all time and I'm not even a fan of superhero movies! I love the way Heath Ledger and Christian Bale portrayed their characters. Their interaction is so believable that I believe it damaged Ledger's mind that led to his suicide. "

    "The Dark Knight was the turning point for the Batman series. It showed a much darker side of Gotham, Bruce Wayne, and the many inhabitants of the city. It did great justice to the comic and remains one of the best comic book adaptations in Hollywood. I loved every minute of it!"
