    ★★★★½

    This movie exceeds all my expectations, from the absolutely great cast and their phenomenal acting, cinematography, directing (hail Chris Nolan), screenplay (hail Jonah Nolan), soundtrack (hail Hans Zimmer), and the breathtaking special effects.

    I can watch this over and over again! ♥

    Zack Snyder, however, wasn't the perfect director. The movie could've turned out to be much better if (say) Chris Nolan was the director, but alas his hands were full with The Dark Knight Rises at that time.

    Loved Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, and Amy Adams here.
