The Dark Knight Rises

The third and final instalment in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy sees the Dark Knight (Christian Bale) facing off against soulless terrorist Bane (Tom Hardy) and the enigmatic Catwoman (Anne Hathaway).

Taking place eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, Gotham City revels in some long-awaited peace. Yet Selina Kyle (Hathaway) whispers that this is merely the calm to a chaotic criminal storm. As terrorism and class warfare descend, Bruce Wayne (Bale) emerges from the seclusion of Wayne Manor. Still pinned for Harvey Dent’s crimes, Batman returns to the city as a wanted fugitive in order to prevent the fall of Gotham, as well as the rise of Bane.

A smart, stirring spectacle that faces down impossible expectations to pull off a hugely satisfying end to business. Boy, you’re in for a show tonight…

Preamble complete, the dark knight duly rises for the bruising final stanza in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, a satisfying saga of revolution and redemption that ends the tale on a note of thunder.

The film begins slowly with a murky plot and too many new characters, but builds to a sensational climax.

A truly grand finale raises Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy to the peak of big-screen comic book adaptations.

Superhero filmmaking on an unprecedented scale. Rises may lack the surprise of Begins or the anarchy of Knight, but it makes up for that in pure emotion. A fitting epitaph for the hero Gotham deserves.

After being a massive fan of the Dark Knight it was great to anticipate Christopher Nolan's follow up from that great classic superhero film. After wondering wether he could pull of a great follow up to that great film. I was staunch with anticipation to achieve the such things. I walked in with hand's done with the biggest anticipation of any film in the...

This is a great movie. It takes movie making making to a higher level with an intelligent story.The special effects were not over the top but blended in well.It has a few twists and turns in the story which does keep you locked in.

The moment has come at last. The speculation and rumour is finally redundant. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES has arrived, and it is indeed the epic final act to Christopher Nolan's Batman saga that many were clamouring for. It's a titanic film, dwarfing even the sizable scope of the series' previous chapter THE DARK KNIGHT, and while it does come dangerously close...

I won't deny, I'm a self-professed Marvel fangirl. But GOSH. This. Film!! So much love. It really didn't feel like the staggering length of 2hrs 44mins, I was enjoying it far too much. Tom Hardy was magnificent as Bane - he managed to be imposing, playful and awe-inspiring while (impossibly!!) drawing my sympathies to him. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was another...

Definitely the third best Batman movie I have seen. Main positive was Joseph Gordon Levitt. Been a massive fan of his ever since I saw Brick and it is good that he is getting some good roles. Wasn't a huge fan of the final Anne Hathaway also looked good in the catsuit and seemed to be having fun but she was one of a few fairly underdeveloped...

I walked into the cinema with a few reservations as i am sure many did. The Dark Night was amazing, it would take something special from Mr Nolan to top that movie. Thankfully he once again outdid himself. The Dark Night Rises was fantastic, i was completely blown away with the whole movie. I was so amazed with Tom Hardys portrayal of Bane, who gives...

I am still coming to terms with how I really felt about this movie. The story was great and the cinematography was excellent, it never ceases to amaze me. I had my reservations beforehand about the casting of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle but I thought she was phenomenal. My personal opinion was that it was not quite as epic as 'The Dark Knight' as without...

...I came out of The Dark Knight Rises with, well, a shrug. An all around feeling of "meh". Which has only been amplified by my recent re-watching of The Dark Knight (which is far from a perfect film itself). I'll be brief and try to keep things as spoiler-free as possible, but nothing really made a whole lot of sense to me with Rises. Not Batman's leave...

Christopher Nolan has made a fantastic triolgy and this 3rd movie was no exception, This just amazed me and had a great ending just tied it up nicley and it was nice to see the cast back again and some new cast members from Inception Nolans other movie. 5 stars

The legend comes to an end in spectacular fashion and although it has its fair share of faults and issues, it still delivers in spades. Christopher Nolan has stayed true to his promise of standing alongside these characters and delivering a beautiful conclusion to wrap up the trilogies characters and their stories and emotional arcs, even if some of the new...
