Ledger did a good job as The Joker, but right when you see him you know that he is dangerous.
No don't agree with that either. The Joker, when drawn properly, always has a creepy dangerous look to him:
The Penguin is the kind of villain who's supposed to look harmless, even comical, and that's what's deceptive about him. Not the Joker.
