I TOTALLY agree about Batman's raspy voice. It drove me nuts! Very distracting. I classify Bale's performance as "plain oatmeal". Not great, didn't suck.

I did enjoy Eckhart as Dent/Two Face. He was to a fault the "good guy" while Gordon was a much more realistic portrait of good. They had to exaggerate Dent's "goodness" in order to help nimrods comprehend his dual nature, I think. However- the way the effects folks made him look as Two Face was terrible. I hated it. It wasn't even scary or believable, whereas Ledger as the Joker freaked my clown-loathing self out. And his little clowny henchmen.... *shudder* Wonder if this would be worth seeing again on IMAX?

I agree entirely with your comment on the make up for Two Face. It really was terrible. I think that contributed to my dislike of the performance/portrayal. Eckhart wasn't bad in the film. He just had too much to overcome, especially in comparison to Ledger's Joker.

And indeed, there are a good 20 minutes or so shot specifically for IMAX. I'm up for it if you are. Just say the word. ;)
