- Quick review:
- The labyrinthine plotlines will drive you batty, and the new villain, Bane, is a muscled-up mug with a Darth Vader wheeze, but so what? Christopher Nolan’s gargantuan, gravitas-soaked Bat-trilogy ends in a spectacular display of action and Bat-gizmo cool, and Anne Hathaway’s cat burglar Selina Kyle, all lips and legs, brings a much-needed spark to Christian Bale’s baleful eyes. With Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman returning, and Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt joining the Gotham City throng.
