One of the greatest trilogies of all time,
This review is from: The Dark Knight Trilogy (Blu-ray + UV Copy)  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)Christopher Nolan (INCEPTION) delivers possibly the greatest trilogy of all time with The Dark Knight Trilogy - one that rivals the likes of The Lord of the Rings, The Dollars Trilogy, Star Wars and The Godfather Trilogy. Each film is leaps and bounds past the previous installment in terms of quality, with the storyline and set pieces for each film constantly outdoing the last. Batman Begins sees Christian Bale (AMERICAN PSYCHO) tackling Bruce Wayne's inner demons and becoming Batman for the first time, taking on his former mentor Ra's Al Ghul (played by Liam Neeson, SCHINDLER'S LIST) and saving Gotham City in the process. The 2008 sequel - the sensational The Dark Knight - sees Batman facing off against his most infamous nemesis; the Joker, portrayed in chilling style by the late Heath Ledger (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) in a performance that ranks as one of the greatest villains in cinema history and most definitely the greatest cinema villain in a long while. The third and final film in the trilogy is The Dark Knight Rises. Batman's last stand against the corrupt and the evil shows him struggling to regain every ounce of power he once had to come out of retirement and face his deadliest foe yet: the seemingly unstoppable Bane - menacingly portrayed by Tom Hardy (BRONSON) - who challenges Batman not only to his physical limit, but also pushes his mental skills to their absolute peak.
Fantastic supporting cast from Gary Oldman (DRACULA), Anne Hathaway (BRIDE WARS), Morgan Freeman (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION), Michael Caine (THE ITALIAN JOB) and many others prove that The Dark Knight Trilogy is not just a series of average blockbusters which boast big names and have nothing to show for it - it's a trilogy that enlists the best director of his generation, some of the most iconic actors of all time, one of the biggest comic book icons on the face of the Earth, stunning plot twists and sensational set pieces. Absolutely essential viewing not only for those who want to see the Batman legacy given justice in film, but for anyone with a mere passing interest in just watching some damned good films.

Errr. The Dark Knight Rises leaps and bounds ahead of The Dark Knight?.. I certainly didn't think so! It's true that the first two films look wonderful in blu-ray though.

Mr. A. Y. Abu says:
Errmm Michael Caine wasn't starred in The Italian Job. I think you confused Him with Donald Sutherland

I thought Batman Begins was terrible, for me, anyway. Whereas the dark knight rises is one of the best films I have ever seen. Just a slight better than The Dark Knight, the second film of the series.

In the same way I'd be spoiling The Empire Strikes Back if I said in a review that Darth Vader was Luke's father. You'd be very hard pressed to find someone who isn't aware of Ra's al Ghul being played by Liam Neeson, regardless of having seen the film.

Oh my god, please don't tell me you thought the Mark Wahlberg version was the only one of it's kind....??!!
