Visionary director Christopher Nolan's superbly mean and moody reboot of the Batman legend sees Christian Bale as Gotham City's leading citizen, crimefighter and saviour, Bruce Wayne. Forgoing the cartoonish goth of Burton and the gloss of Schumacher, Nolan and screenwriter David S Goyer plunge deep into the dark heart and soul of both the city and its bat-fixated saviour with an adventure that goes back to the Dark Knight's origins before pitting him against Cillian Murphy's toxic psycho The Scarecrow. From cast to execution, it's a blockbuster that sends out an awesome signal.
