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 Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
This movie was a lot of fun! It was a nice ending to the darker, more serious Batman trilogy. Tom Hardy was great as Bane and in my opinion made the movie. Anne Hathaway wasn't as annoying as I'd expected, but she was still a little annoying. In any case, I liked the political and societal intrigue this movie had that kept at the heart of the Batman tradition.
I thought this movie was amazing. It was fascinating to watch how much Bruce Wayne had to go through in order to save Gotham City from the masked terrorist known as Bane. Batman, now proclaimed as a fugitive, also has to get used to being hunted down by the police. I thought Catwoman was a nice addition as she manages to allure Batman with her schemes.
I really enjoyed the final installment of Nolan's Batman films. Whatever you say about Nolan's delivery, you must admit he has his finger on the pulse of society. This film spends a lot of time talking about (and fighting about) class inequalities and class warfare. I doubt that sending an army of ex-cons to terrorize Wall Street would have helped the financial crisis much, but it's interesting to see that scenario played out, especially with Batman and Catwoman thrown in. It was a fun movie.
