And I loved Whedon dialogue when it is cracking wise.
I wouldn't consider the characterizations of Bruce, Dent, or Gordon neither poor nor groundbreaking.
They're are reasonably accurate outside of Two Face (which I consider inaccurate) but nothing special.
Without Heath's Joker TDK would probably be in the same category as Dark Knight Rises which is pretty good but far short of legendary.
