This iReport is part of an assignment:
Did you see 'Dark Knight?'
I attended the Las Vegas IMAX showing at 3 a.m. this morning...I'd been following the development of the movie for a long time, and expected a masterpiece - but this managed to exceed even my high hopes.
I went in knowing that Heath Ledger's performance would be phenominal - what delighted me was that the script, plot and dialogue were equally amazing...the two elements are each made stronger by the other.
As a comic book fan, it was really exciting to see the Joker finally portrayed as the disturbed maniac he is - as much as the earlier actors were good, I think we've finally seen "the" Joker on screen.
This photo shows my friend Mario Carrillo in the theater lobby at the Palms casino at 6 a.m. - right after we got out of the film.
