How can I begin to describe the final installment of the Dark Knight trilogy? Well, let’s just get started.
With our returning cast members Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman; Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox; Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon; and Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, we are immediately reminded why we venture into the darkness of Christopher Nolan’s Gotham.
