"To say expectations for this film were high would be an understatement worthy of an award. As there isn’t an award for understatements, you’re going to have to accept that as fact. Christopher Nolan brought Batman out of camp and into the gritty reality of crime as well as being down right dark. Two films are what Nolan has under his belt which tell the story of the tragic hero, both of which are critically acclaimed and commercially successful. He had a challenge on his hands, that much is true."
