Okay, the bottom line...'The Dark Knight Rises' directed by the mega talented Christopher Nolan, is not only the very best comic book hero movie ever made, but in my opinion, it's worthy of an Oscar nod. That's how good it is.

The film, which was written by Nolan and his brother, Jonathan, with story by David S. Goyer, picks up 8 years after the death of Gotham's, D. A. Harvey Dent, as well as the demise of Bruce Wayne'/Batman's (Christian Bale) soul mate, Rachel Dawes.

For those of you who may have forgotten, Dent is the dude who went psycho and became the super evil 'Two Face'. Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) convinced Batman to take the fall for Dent's murder so he could implement extremely harsh anti crime laws.

And it worked. For the last 8 years, Gotham City has been crime free. Problem is...everyone thinks that Dent was a hero and Batman a villain.
