Definitely a great movie. And it will definitely make billions in the box office.
The early reviews on are in, and they are overwhelmingly positive. (Rotten Tomatoes measures critics reviews in at 96% positive, so far. )
Perhaps most notably, new villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy, is said to measure up to the late Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning Joker in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy grand finale.
