What an epic way to end such an incredible franchise! I was blown away by every moment of this movie, especially the freakin' awesome ending. Tom Hardy stole the show with his terrifying performance as Bane, a classic Batman villain whose rep was tarnished by Batman & Robin and was flawlessly restored with this film.
I liked that this was more of a sequel to Batman Begins than The Dark Knight, with Ra's al Ghul's legacy and the League of Shadows being the main focus and the Joker left out entirely out of respect to the late Heath Ledger. Christopher Nolan has crafted the perfect superhero film trilogy and will forever be remembered as the man who perfected Batman.
