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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant End To A Brilliant Trilogy. 22 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
After the success of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, a lot was expected from The Dark Knight Rises. It's fair to say that this film; doesn't disappoint. Batman is as determined as ever to fight crime, and he also has better gadgets; than before. Batman hasn't been Batman in 8 years, he is blamed for Harvey Dent's Murder so is hated by all of Gotham apart from Commissioner Gordon and his close friends, and of course Robin. Cat Women is as unpredictable in the movies than in; the comics. Bane is a scary, evil villain, who is the only person in the Batman films who can beat Batman in a fight. After Bane beats him close to death, Batman is dumped in a torture prison with no hope of survival. He builds himself up and escapes. Where he then proceeds to stop Bane blowing up Gotham; with Bane's nuclear bomb. Batman eventually beats Bane in a fight but has plenty more work; to do. The film is very entertaining, unpredictable and also has a very good story. Christian Bale is as good as ever as Batman/Wayne as is the rest of the cast; in their roles. Fair play to Christopher Nolan for ending the greatest Batman sequels with a very good film. A must buy for all Batman fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectacular ending to a terrfic trilogy 19 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray
With The Dark Knight Rises, we have what was almost thought to be impossible; a terrific ending to one of the best movie trilogies ever created.

In my opinion this is the best of the three films and features even more great performances, in particular from Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle (aka Catwoman) and shows who to truly bring a female comic book character to life. While people may complain about not being able to understand what he's saying, Bane is still a great villain and Tom Hardy does a great job with his performance.

The action is spectacular in this movie, and is once again filmed beautifully. DC now have a tough job in trying to convince me to see Batman vs. Superman, as I don't think its possible for this to be topped.

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 Good finale. 14 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very good ending to the trilogy, finishing with Bruce, but leaving the way open for a follow up with Dick. Well worth the price and re-watchable, Good stuff from Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman as usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out on a high! 14 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I know I'm swimming against the popular belief but TDKR for me is the best of the trilogy. Both the others movies were superb ... I thought that TDK would never be bettered but I was delighted to be proven wrong.

The story grips throughout, the acting is top notch, the effects superb and the whole trilogy is very neatly tied up and finished.

Five stars to Chris Nolan for direction, Tom Hardy for a villain equal to Ledger's Joker a to Sir Michael Caine for bring both smiles to my face and tears to my eyes in equal measure.

I wish there was a fourth installment but if you're going to end then this is how you do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As Batman Begins 6 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a perfectly acceptable sequel to Batman Begins, however it pails in the face of the first movie in the series. The storyline and script are good but a little too dark and dismal for me. The acting is superb however which makes up for the less than exceptional plot.
