This installment picks up 8 years after the previous film. Harvey Dent is still praised as a hero while Batman (Christian Bale) has gone into hiding as a criminal. Our new criminal is Bane (Tom Hardy). He wears a breather mask that makes him look like Hannibal Lechter, but sound like Darth Vader. He is huge and strong plus he has those fancy gizmos and loyal men who work for him. He is a seemingly impossible foe for ailing Batman who kept reminding me of Rocky V.

Anne Hathaway makes for an interesting Catwoman who freely walks the line between good and evil. She is perhaps the most complex character in the story. The film has an incredible amount of action with important plot points happening nearly all the time. You don't want to go out for popcorn during the feature, you will be lost when you return. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Blake, a police officer/detective who grew up in an orphanage...do you see it coming?

PARENTAL GUIDE: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

Absolutely superb! Even though I don't particularly like Christian Bale, I've got to admit he does make a good Batman, I just don't particularly like him as his alter ego (ego being the operative word) Bruce Wayne. But the movie itself is superb, just as good as all the latest Batman movies (Begins/Rises).

The Dark Knight Rises was a film that I anticipated ever since the end credits of The Dark Knight.

When the time came that The Dark Knight Rises was to be released, I was ecstatic to say the least. I was first in line on the day of it's release at the IMAX and I was not disappointed. I was thrilled at the spectacle and swept away by it's action and scope.

On my return from the cinema I was reading reviews and could not fathom the bad reception the film was getting. I decided it merited a second viewing and to my surprise, I wasn't as thrilled as I was the first time. I was able to take it in on a second viewing and actually look at it from another point of view, rather than the excited man child I became on my first viewing.

You have to admire the film's scope, vision and the massive technical undertaking but despite this, The Dark Knight Rises but then starts to dip the more you think about it...

I started to notice all the major flaws in the film and the real lack of substance that I was trying so hard not to see.

The main problem I have with the movie is the extreme pacing issues. The film's opening hour or so is a very well thought out, slow build up. However when the pace is cranked up a gear, I couldn't help feeling that the film was in too much of a rush to squeeze everything in. It doesn't settle on any plot point to let the film breathe before rushing ahead of itself to get to the next spectacle. On a first viewing you can't help but get swept up by it but on return it starts to crack. For instance, the stadium scene was a major focus point of the movie but it was over before I felt it had even started. It leaves you breathless but not in a good way.

Brilliant film, ends the trilogy very well and for me they certainly saved the best for last! The only slightly disappointing thing for me is that because i've seen it an know what happens i will never get to see it for the first time again.

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.

Perhaps the best in this particular trilogy, for a dark tale it it manages to be remarkably funny. The story line can drag a little at times after you've identified where the plot is going but well worth the wait.
