    Great! Jack did a great upgraded joker since the 60's. I love the story and was great! I think The Dark Knight was better but for this movies time, I love it!

    good acting and costumes enhance this good looking film. Basinger, keaton and Nicholoson do good work here. The score is a step up fro the action sequences. A shocking ending helps.
