At a glance:
That which does not kill you will only make you stranger. Stranger still is how Christopher Nolan managed to better the already formidable Batman Begins (2005), what with how tricky the franchise is. In the past 10 years or so, blockbuster adaptations of comic book superheroes have rarely touched the greatness, nor captured the essence, of the character at hand, perhaps with the exception of Iron Man (2008). Between Bruce Wayne and the Batman however, there's already enough character struggle to perish all thoughts of any Catwomen cleavage needed for blockbuster appeal. Rarely does an overtly mainstream picture discuss power, justice, due process and the rule of law so accessibly for the regular moviegoer. Bruce Wayne is billionaire playboy and expert criminologist at the same time - yet story is filled with legal themes, almost academic even. I ain't even at The Joker yet.

Watch out for:
|Never start with the head. The victim gets all fuzzy.|
Most memorable line:
Alfred: "Some men can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with - they just want to watch the world burn."
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
★★★★★ Can't wait for the next instalment. Surely Two Face will have more screen time?
