A lot of people say this is the best movie they have seen this year so far. I just wonder why.

This year so far The Avengers still remains to be beaten. The movie Dark Knight Rises is not bad at all there was just something about the movie that just didn’t click for me. Just like I went to see The Avengers (staying away from previews and write ups about it so as to be surprised by the events) so did I for Dark Knight Rises. In the case of Avengers I was swept of my feet, while here I just sat still.

Nolan only agreed to a third film on the basis of finding a worthwhile story, fearing that he would become bored halfway through production if he discovered the film to be unnecessary. He later came up with a story with the aid of his brother.

The studio after seeing the success of Joker in The Dark Knight, wanted to have the Riddler as the villain but Nolan went for Bane instead.

The thing that will trip you about this movie is Selina Kyle; Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) was well delivered and captured my very eye. The character is very similar to that of the comics and was SEXY. But on the argument on whether Michelle Pfeiffer or Anne Hathaway delivered the best version of the Cat, well looking at how the stories were written Pfeiffer has the upper hand due to the fact that the Batman Returns (1992) focused on her somewhat, while here she was just a character. But if that is set aside I will pick Michelle’s adaptation for the whole psycho fun she put into it.

The plot of the movie goes: It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning in that instant from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the crime rate in Gotham has also dropped massively. The plan between the Bat and commissioner Gordon was going well till a terrorist group and their leader comes into Gotham.

The raid of the group opens wounds, and tears a father son relationship that Bruce had. The terrorist Bane was not the only one bring in the blues in to Wayne’s life, a mysterious thief known as Selina Kyle too was roaming the street.

A series of unfortunate events leads to the comic history between the Bat and Bane, where we get to see Bane break the Bats back. Now the Bat is out of commission and Gotham is at its knees, “Who will save them?”
We all know the answer, The Bat.

As acting, goes Bale did well, but Anne Hathaway stole the show. The directing is not flawed at all Nolan is a master movie maker and all respect must be given to him. But the story to me was as weak as bread on water, and the movie was just too long for me.
Will I be seeing this movie again? Not really. But I dare you to miss this flick, regardless of what anyone says it is a movie to see.
