Final farewell

Christopher Nolan gave himself a simple manifesto when beginning work on The Dark Knight Rises, the latest - and final - instalment in his Batman series.

'I think the challenge with a sequel is to give the audience a reason to come back to Gotham,' the director and screenwriter says, referring to the fictional city in which the stories are set.

Batman Begins

Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins fails to live up to expectations.

Nolan, who also directed Memento and Insomnia, packs plenty of explosive action and interesting gadgets into the film, but fails to develop his characters.

The wonderful supporting cast which includes Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman is sadly wasted.
