it was absolutely great movie..as Catholic we should be able to see how even hollywood can so eleganlty explain the battle between good and evil when superpower are not in it at all. Batman is awesome and the concept come from Catholic as well. i bet those who didnt like it at all would not know about how religous comic guys really are, and there roots . The joker just wanted Batman to spoot to his level, and he wouldnt, Batman took an ass kicking for the good of people, and very few appreciated it at all, he did this in cover(fought evil) and stayed praisless beying unknown. we need Batmans in Catholicsm, not reseverd types anymore. we need people who praise Jesus on the way to the movie and that, not who wait for a buiding so noone see them doing it, and they can feel at home doing it! Lets stand up for our faith like the early christians did people! Jesus is recruiting Batmans today

I'm not sure I agree with what has been said regarding Batman's motivation behind letting the Joker live, especially in comparison to Ra's Al Ghul. In the first movie, it was clear that if Ra's Al Ghul were allowed to live, he would continue trying to destroy Gotham. Realizing this, Batman chose to do nothing to hinder Ra's death. Call it a necessary evil. If he could've let Ra's live and still keep the city safe, that is the choice Batman would have made. However, that was not a logical choice, based on his desire to protect the city from crime.
It's different with the Joker, though. The Joker has no shred of decency or morality in him. He is a living definition of anarchy and chaos. Because of this, he fears absolutely nothing, not even death. This is clearly indicated by his maniacal laughter as Batman seems to let him fall to his death. Killing the Joker would have proved nothing, except that the Joker had won in his effort to bring Batman down to his level. The Joker is clearly disappointed by Batman allowing him to live, as it shows that there is a difference between them.
