From Amazon.co.uk

Of all the "most anticipated" movies ever claiming that title, it's hard to imagine one that has caused so much speculation and breathless expectation as Christopher Nolan's final chapter to his magnificently brooding Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. Though it may not rise to the level of the mythic grandeur of its predecessor, The Dark Knight Rises is a truly magnificent work of cinematic brilliance that commandingly completes the cycle and is as heavy with literary resonance as it is of-the-moment insight into the political and social affairs unfolding on the world stage. That it is also a full-blown and fully realized epic crime drama packed with state-of-the-art action relying equally on immaculate CGI fakery and heart-stopping practical effects and stunt work makes its entrée into blockbuster history worthy of all the anticipation and more. It deserves all the accolades it will get for bringing an opulently baroque view of a comic book universe to life with sinister effectiveness.

Set eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, TDK Rises finds Bruce Wayne broken in spirit and body from his moral and physical battle with the Joker. Gotham City is at peace primarily because Batman took the fall for Harvey Dent's murder, allowing the former district attorney's memory to remain as a crime-fighting hero rather than the lunatic destructor he became as Two-Face. But that meant Batman's cape and cowl wound up in cold storage--perhaps for good--with only police commissioner Jim Gordon in possession of the truth. The threat that faces Gotham now is by no means new; as deployed by the intricate script that weaves themes first explored in Batman Begins, fundamental conflicts that predate his own origins are at the heart of the ultimate struggle that will leave Batman and his city either triumphant or in ashes. It is one of the movie's greatest achievements that we really don't know which way it will end up until its final exhilarating moments. Intricate may be an understatement in the construction of the script by Nolan and his brother Jonathan. The multilayered story includes a battle for control of Wayne Industries and the decimation of Bruce Wayne's personal wealth; a destructive yet potentially earth-saving clean energy source; a desolate prison colony on the other side of the globe; terrorist attacks against people, property, and the world's economic foundation; the redistribution of wealth to the 99 percent; and a virtuoso jewel thief who is identified in every way except name as Catwoman. Played with saucy fun and sexy danger by Anne Hathaway, Selina Kyle is sort of the catalyst (!) for all the plot threads, especially when she whispers into Bruce's ear at a charity ball some prescient words about a coming storm that will tear Gotham asunder. As unpredictable as it is sometimes hard to follow, the winds of this storm blow in a raft of diverse and extremely compelling new characters (including Selina Kyle) who are all part of a dance that ends with the ballet of a cataclysmic denouement. Among the new faces are Marion Cotillard as a green-energy advocate and Wayne Industries board member and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a devoted Gotham cop who may lead Nolan into a new comic book franchise. The hulking monster Bane, played by Tom Hardy with powerful confidence even under a clawlike mask, is so much more than a villain (and the toughest match yet for Batman's prowess). Though he ends up being less important to the movie's moral themes and can't really match Heath Ledger's maniacal turn as Joker, his mesmerizing swagger and presence as demonic force personified are an affecting counterpoint to the moral battle that rages within Batman himself. Christian Bale gives his most dynamic performance yet as the tortured hero, and Michael Caine (Alfred), Gary Oldman (Gordon), and Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox) all return with more gravitas and emotional weight than ever before. Then there's the action. Punctuated by three or four magnificent set pieces, TDKR deftly mixes the cinematic process of providing information with punches of pow throughout (an airplane-to-airplane kidnap/rescue, an institutional terrorist assault and subsequent chase, and the choreographed crippling of an entire city are the above-mentioned highlights). The added impact of the movie's extensive Imax footage ups the wow factor, all of it kinetically controlled by Nolan and his top lieutenants Wally Pfister (cinematography), Hans Zimmer (composer), Lee Smith (editor), and Nathan Crowley and Kevin Kavanaugh (production designers). The best recommendation TDKR carries is that it does not leave one wanting for more. At 164 minutes, there's plenty of nonstop dramatic enthrallment for a single sitting. More important, there's a deep sense of satisfaction that The Dark Knight Rises leaves as the fulfilling conclusion to an absorbing saga that remains relevant, resonant, and above all thoroughly entertaining. --Ted Fry

Product Description

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

This review contains spoilers.

The weakest of the three films, by far. The premise is on a par with The Dark Knight in terms of scope and scale, but the execution is much poorer. Whilst the plots of the previous two films could arguably stand up to critical scrutiny this one fails right from the get-go, from the atrociously incautious CIA agent to the remarkably flimsy plane. Later I noticed, without really intending to, two glaring production errors: Cat woman speaks when her lips are clearly not moving; and a henchman falls on his backside as though struck during a choreographed fight scene despite receiving not even a glance from an opponent.

All-in-all there seems to have been less effort put into this film than the prior two, and it shows. Pity. Maybe it was a little rushed?

5.0 out of 5 stars Gothams reckoning..... 7 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First of all, Nolan has made the greatest trilogy of all time, and while the film probably won't demand repeat viewings like The Dark Knight, it's narrative structure and beautiful photography by Pfister, make this film the superior one in the series.

Where the first movie explored fear, and the second movie chaos and anarchy, this film is based on redemption and pain, because as many people have stated, both Bane and Bruce experience pain throughout the movie.

And this is what makes Bane an interesting villain, because he is the polar opposite to Batman, but the same, as Nichy once said, 'you stare into the abyss long enough, it will stare back at you'. Bane is Batmans abyss, what he could have become if he had joined the League.

Structurally the movie fits in perfectly with the others, and this is what makes this the best trilogy of all. Everyone is dedicated to Nolans vision, from the cast, to the crew, they believe in what he has done, and this makes it better viewing for the audience.

The cast are fantastic, and the question of the ending? it's perfect, Wayne has paid his due to Gotham, and Gotham to him, after all it took away his parents, and made him unhinged. But this movie finally, shows him at peace, and the last scene confirms that this epic trilogy is over.

It's sad to think this, Nolan resurrected a franchise that went out of control, and then some, and has managed to give the movie a conclusion, that not only respects the source material, but the movie goer too.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the trilogy. Highly satisfying. 26 July 2014
Format:DVD
Christopher Nolan's final film completing the trilogy of Batman is a great success. From the isolated prison Batman finds himself in, to redemption it is all here. The cast is a little more inspried to. Tom Hardy as Bane is something that looks like he has been dragged from Mad Max 2, but it all works so well. The flashbacks are highly effective and the relationship between Caine and Bale is magic, almost emotional.

All 3 films are cinematic experiences, and really can only be viewed at home on a huge TV or projector to get any kind of effect, that is the downside to these type of films. They need the whole hog to be completely appreciated.

Overall Nolan made Batman ok to like again. And rounds this trilogy off with maximum effect, even for non Batman fans there is something here to spark interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the 3 films 25 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Whether or not you love this film will depend on how much of a 'Batman Film' you want. If you want the caped crusader going around beating up baddies for 90 minutes you will be disappointed. If however you want a tense, grueling adult thriller with a fearsome villain and a downtrodden protagonist battling insurmountable odds until the very end, then you will be delighted.

To get the most out of Nolan's Dark Knight series, unlike other superhero movies, I think you must put aside your childhood fandom and enjoy it as pure adult drama. With part 3 especially you must engage with the 'Man' part of 'BatMan', ie. Bruce Wayne and his worsening struggles.

The Dark Knight Rises has much more Wayne than Bat, in fact Bruce does not wear the costume for a large part of this movie, his struggles are undergone as a mere man, reduced to ordinary flesh and bone, his millionaire toys taken from him and his body broken. This is where a lot of viewers seem to feel let down, as they didn't want this, they wanted a triumphant Bat Man dominating the screen. Instead we get a downtrodden Bruce Wayne suffering terrible distress and we yearn for the Bat to return. Which he does... Eventually.

Bane is an awesome villain. I would go out on a limb and say he's even better than Joker. And yes, I repeat: Bane is even better than Joker. Why? Because of his sheer physical presence and brutality. As a psychological opponent, Joker was deadly. But as a pure physical opponent, Bane's close-combat strength and hand-to-hand kills are terrifying. His masked face and towering presence make him a show-stealing villain, proving simply too strong for our hero to handle without some help.

Which brings me to Catwoman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turned me from a Batman hater to Batman fanatic! 12 Jun 2013
By Laura Hartley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I'll be honest, I only went to see The Dark Knight rises because my friend dragged me to the cinema. I knew that The Dark Knight rises was seen to be one of the most anticipated films of the year and everyone who had seen it before me was ranting and raving about it and comparing it to The Avengers, but for some reason, I just couldn't get excited about this film. So as you can see, I went into the cinema with a less than favourable attitude towards Batman, and having almost zero knowledge about the rest of the trilogy, but I came out speechless, I had been completely won over and I just didn't know what to do with myself.

Now, I have never, ever give a film a five star rating, in fact, I don't give ratings period because I can't possibly translate everything that I want to say into a few stars. Anyways, back to my point, I've never given a film a five star rating, but here I am, giving one now. The Dark Knight Rises is an absolutely phenomenal film and I really don't think I'll do it any justice with this review. The reason I'm giving The Dark Knight Rises five out of five stars is because prior to watching the film I hated Batman. I hated the Dark Knight Trilogy, I hated Christian Bale, I hated everything to do with Batman, but when I came out of the cinema, I was completely smittten. I knew right then, that a new obsession had been born and that I would be all BatmanBatmanBatman for a long time yet. I don't think my views on a film or series have ever undergone that rapid a transformation from hate to obsession within the space of two and a half hours, and that is why I am awarding The Dark Knight Rises with my first five star rating.

The Dark Knight Rises is set eight years after the events that took place in The Dark Knight and there is peace in Gotham.
