Batman (Christian Bale)
   Despite the horrific massacre that occurred with the midnight opening in Aurora, Colorado, the film went on to gross 160 million for the opening weekend. Unfortunately, the late Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker was way to hard of an act to follow. 

Bane (Tom Hardy) Opens a can of whup-ass)
     The nemeses Bane’s only scary quality was physically administering  back-of-the-alley ass whuppins, otherwise he was just another run-of-the-mill evil freak wearing a mask. 

Bat Girl Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway)
        Our boy Batman spent way too much down time throughout the film as a result of all of those ass whuppin’s he received from Bane. Anne Hathaway looked like she was wearing butt padding in her pants to make those close-up, rear ass shots look tempting when she was on her motorcycle. The storyline was OK as was the action but this trilogy conclusion was no match for the intensity of Ledger’s Joker!

***Good! (Ride In The Middle)!
