IMDB Synopsis:

Eight years on, a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham’s finest, and the Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy

Ok, if you’re comic book nerd like me, you will understand why I didn’t find the twists and turns of the Batman plot to be surprising. However, this film had a brilliant cast, director, cinematographer, etc. Literally, everything about this movie was completely fantastic. I would change a few things, but I can’t say much without spoiling some of the ending. Anne Hathaway did an amazing job as Selina Kyle/ Catwoman, any feminist would be proud. I hope for the future DC comics will put together a movie based on a superheroine. It’s refreshing to see Marion Cotillard take on another complicated Nolan character, because I prefer her in these kinds of roles rather than the one she took on in Midnight in Paris. (I loved that movie though). Bale delivered Bruce Wayne brilliantly, although he is an eccentric billionaire, the man has accessible qualities about him. I like how the different characters in Wayne’s life reflect different internal struggles, like Gordon representing Wayne’s conscious. I must warn you though, this is a longer film, so make sure you prepare yourself mentally and physically. I recommend it to everyone!
