    Revised movie franchise by Christopher Nolan was a smash hit and a likable4 movie by fans of the hit comic book hero and critics alike! Alas! I enjoyed this fast paced well acted superbly directed first rate movie. Bale plays bruce wayne/Batman so well I had to just sit on my edge of my seat! Well crafted movie with first rate cinematography. this movie cried out for Oscar so well, I wanted it to be a nominated film. Great looking sets and decorated sets. this film had the right feeling of a first rate box office champ. a 5 star movie in my book! Nolan thank you for bringing this to the big screens.
