Back in 2012, this movie was my top priority. Eventually, was is it any good? Yes, it was pretty awesome. Was it better than 'The Dark Knight'? Absolutely not... In fact, I even think that 'Batman Begins' was better but it is definitely a tribute to Nolan's skills that even though this movie was a disappointment, it was still quite impressive. This movie had basically one huge obstacle : its predecessor was near perfect and it was an impossible task to reach again such a level of awesomeness. On top of that, there were just too many characters involved. For example, Anne Hathaway really impressed me as Catwoman but she didn't have much to do. Tom Hardy was also impressive and Bane was a pretty cool villain but he didn't come near the Joker in terms of mayhem and personality (Furthermore, while the Joker remained a mystery which was his greatest strength, they gave a more detailed background for Bane but this back story wasn't really impressive and the twist at the end, which wasn't really a surprise, made him merely a henchman which belittled even more this character). Furthermore, you barely got see the Batman which would have been fine if they didn't already use the same trick in the first movie. Still, I was entertained throughout the whole thing, it was filled with some great actors and the directing was really strong which is something we got used to with Christopher Nolan. In fact, the first hour was great, probably as good as 'The Dark Knight' was and there were some rather emotional scenes, especially the scenes featuring Michael Caine who was just heartbreaking. To conclude, we have been accustomed to get greatness everytime from Mr Nolan and it wasn't so great this time around but it was still fine but it is really time for him to move on to something else. I can't wait to see what he will do next and it will be, again, my top priority. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, this farewell to the Batman was still a very good flick and it is definitely worth a look.
