A satisfying conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. Various issues with plot holes, in fact there’s a lot wrong with the characters, story, and screenplay and yet somehow it’s still a great film. I enjoyed it much more the second time round, and wouldn’t be at all surprised if it became a film that can happily be watched on the big-screen again, and again, and again…

(Incidentally, the aeroplane scene near the start of the movie was filmed near Inverness in Scotland, possibly influenced by similar aerial shots near the beginning of 1980’s ‘Flash Gordon’ filmed over the Isle of Skye …)
