Starting with 2005’s Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan gave the world a new-and-improved Batman. Gone were the familiar flashy comic book stereotypes, replaced by a dark, gritty hero of today’s world in a realistic noir vibe. Batman Begins captured the imagination of comic fans and proved Batman could be more than what he had (d)evolved into in prior cinema efforts.
Following that film was Nolan’s The Dark Knight, where Batman once again proved himself king of the comic book heroes alongside a new and more twisted Joker than ever before. Now the third and final installment in Nolan’s Batman trilogy has come to an end with The Dark Knight Rises, and what an end it is!
The film is nothing but brilliant from start to finish. It ends an amazing film series with a bang that will be talked about for years to come by film and comic fans alike.
