This movie was initially panned by critics who soon changed their tune when real moviegoers gave it a thumbs up so I was very curious to find out for myself.
For me, this movie is a classic. It is nothing like the Batman series but it does appear to respect the other movies in terms of 'canon'.
Overall theme of the movie is to-ing and fro-ing of your opinion of the protagonist between sympathy and horror.
I have to say that Joaquin Phoenix was amazing in it. I think he could be in the running for an oscar, even.
Don't worry if you haven't seen a single Batman movie - you will still understand 95% of this movie as it stands on its own two feet without the loose connection.
