    I have absolutely no idea of how to start this review.
    First off the bat, to the best of my knowledge there is nothing here that will shake the foundations and change the opinion of the Nolan haters.

    Set 8 years after The Dark Knight, this film takes a knackered and spiritually broken Bruce Wayne and places him in a situation where he must don the cape once more.
