A big crazy guy gets himself a nuclear bomb.

I can't think of a single moment in the entire movie that provoked a "This is awesome!" response. For a Batman movie, coming from me, that is pretty bad. Although, if I hadn't seen the first two movies, I probably would have thought this one was great. But it doesn't manage to do anything that Nolan hasn't already done much better. And it's a shining example of why comic book movies shouldn't try to imitate The Dark Knight. Comic book characters are simple and naturally campy. If you take them seriously, but don't have a brilliantly intelligent script that warrants being taken seriously, the result will be... not so good. If Christopher Nolan himself can only get it right 2/3 times, the Zack Snyders and Marc Webbs of the world are doomed to failure.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.… (more)
