    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Great visuals and music on re-imagining a new Gotham city, however the script is fundamentally flawed. I could be harsh writing this review because I have been comparing it with Nolan's trilogy.

    I'm amazed by the filmmakers being able to gain access & trust straight to the corridor of power of The Philippines. Starting with the interview of Imelda Marcos at her palace-like residence, the film introduced her as an exiled royalty, who hope to restore the status of her dead husband president. But as the film goes, it peels back layers and uncover more truth about political history of The Philippines and she was staging a comeback.
