Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale complete their Batman trilogy – following Batman Begins and The Dark Knight – with an ambitious, apocalyptic drama in which Tom Hardy's musclebound Bane is planning to wipe Gotham City off the map.

The odd thing is how little Batman has to do. He's a limping recluse for much of the film's first half, and he's rotting in jail for much of the second, so a vast supporting cast is left to do most of the work.
