It's been eight years since Batman was last spotted on the streets of Gotham. For him, it's Mission Retirement. But now the city is under threat from terrorist Bane. An easy job, specially when the Dark Knight is keeping a close tab on all that's going on in his city?

Movie Review: Hey Gothamites! This is your last chance to hoot, whistle, clap, scream... and do everything possible to cheer for your iconic super hero who makes a final appearance in this epic conclusive part of Hollywood's greatest triology of the 21st Century. So what if that hero is turning all grey! So what if we see him falling and failing each time he tries to rise! So what if the movie really makes you wait in order to get a glimpse of Christian Bale do what he does best. For when he puts on that mask, you get your penny's worth. The end result: You end up wanting more!
Now just incase you are expecting the Joker kinda pack of fun (yes, Heath Ledger's Joker still has an edge over this one) here, remember this movie is only and only about Batman. Precisely what we want, right? Of course, there's the new recruit Selina Kyle ( Anne Hathaway) who, as bundle of spiky fun, is smart, sexy and convincing as the jewel thief dressed as Catwoman. Not to miss out is Tom Hardy, the bad guy whose Bane is an evil mix of brawn, brains and digitized vocals. For the rest, it's over to Batman's holy trinity -- Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and the ever-faithful butler Michael Caine. As for the plot, this is where all the earlier and incomplete links are joined together... till everything falls in place. But hey, remember there's Batman (Christian Bale) too! Never more vulnerable.... never before seen struggling so much -- emotionally and physically -- to make Gotham a crime-free city... never before so charged up!
Now for the action: Unlimited. The background score: Heart thumping. The special effects: Well, the magic of the Batmobile and the batty antics -- flying, and all that -- is still heart-stopping. But it is The End - all that super bang-bang stuff and the surprise! surprise! element that forces you to get back to doing all that you did when this movie began -- hoot, whistle, clap, scream... and do everything possible to cheer! So Just Go and Do (read Watch) it!
