The Dork Knight stumbles.
Cinematically excellent and with exquisite editing and composition this is a quality product. What it IS NOT is Batman, Nolan's or otherwise. There is almost no overlap of the character from the first two (damn near perfect) films. The core values of the character, literally the thing which makes him Batman was totally missing from the film. Logical inconsistencies aardghh splutter too many too list getting dark , so cold....help.
On the other hand if camp Batman ever comes back Adam West has a genuinely funny and camp villian to play against=Bane.
See the first two films instead.
If you are not into comics.....
It's great lots of bangs and whoops and stuff explodes so that's good. No Bruce Willis though.
