The 300+people who voted to kill the other boat... well, as the Joker said, you see people's true colors when they're about to die. And even though they voted on it, none of them had the courage to act on it.
Two Face's mean streak is understandable. He's horribly disfigured and lost his love. He's not thinking straight at all. He's become the villain and at the end he realized it but allowed it to consume himself anyway.
Joker... it wasn't resolved because he's in custody, I assume. And they didn't kill him off because he was meant to be back to fight another day. But yah... now that Heath is really gone, I don't know how that'll work.
In the end, it's a great film though a bit long. It's PG-13 but wow, this is one scary, violent film for even that rating. I don't think I can take my mom to this.
