So much fun.
Heath Ledger will always be remembered for artfully sliding into insanity as The Joker, or letting the ache in his soul flower during Brokeback Mountain, and that’s fair.
But don’t forget how he lit up the screen as a fake knight winning big on ye olde jousting circuit, “changing his stars,” while AC/DC thumped on the soundtrack.
Everything here works, from Paul Bettany gettin’ folks in the cheap seats riled-up while selling Ledger like a WWE announcer introducing The Rock, to Shannyn Sossamon’s saucy princess.
And Ledger as “Sir Ulrich von Liechtenstein?”
Rest assured, he will rock you.
