    Nobody's Perfect... BUT BATMAN IS!

    I know this was most people's reaction to the film... BUT NOT MINE!

    So who cares if Bane doesn't have the venom tubes?

    So who cares if Catwoman shoots Bane?

    It beats the crap out of X-Men Origins: Barakapool, thats for sure.

    I'm known for hating movies that are nothing like the comics. Well, how does this stay true to the comics?

    It has that kind of "Knightfall" feel.

    Probably just because it's Batman getting his back broken, but still.

    I'd pick this over TDK any day, which proves this is the best!

    Catwoman was hot, Bane broke Batman's back, Batman kicked butt, it was dark, some people got killed/horribly injured, it heavily implied that there IS a Nolanverse Robin/Nightwing/Batman II, so why hate it? If all you want is explosions and action then why hate this movie?

    I mean, it has action, a good plot, suspense, drama, some comedy here and there, and explosions, which, in my opinion, is what a good movie NEEDS.

I'm honestly not sure where to start. The words to accurately describe this film may not have been invented yet. This film was so incredible that it is quite...

      It is hard to get too much into this movie without revealing too much about the plot, but this is essentially a wonderful compilation of story arcs from Knightfall and No Man's Land.  At times the movie plods along through some unconventional storylines and perhaps the average fan without as much exposure to the comics will find this lacking in energy, but the way in which this trilogy of films was wrapped up served to highlight the overall vision of the writer and director.  As with this cast f...
