5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and Gritty, 27 Dec. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Dark Knight Rises (DVD + UV Copy) [2012] (DVD)
A truly awesome and surprising film to finish Christian Bales time as The Dark Knight.A dark and gritty film with a performance to match from Mr Bale.Whoever follows him in the role has some big shoes to fill.In a year dominated by Marvel Comics with Captain America The First Avenger,(Chris Evans),and then Thor,(Chris Hemsworth), being major hits possibly only surpassed by The Avengers Assemble,DC had to pull out something special with The Dark Knight Rises and to be honest they did just that.
In my mind with DC's upcoming launch of The Justice League of America film they'd have been far better off persuading Mr Bale to stay on as The Dark Knight,the leader of The Justice League,no matter what the cost or accommodations needed,rather than trying to produce a film with all the actors having only one film as their character and the main one(Batman),being brand new.

If they'd followed Marvels lead using an established actor/character, (The truly excellent Robert Downey Jr who'd already had two successful outings as Iron Man,alongside Chris Evans,Mark Rufallo,Chris Hemsworth,Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner,then they may have something worth watching,but then DC Comics have always had some strange ideas for as long as I've been a comic lover which is well over 40 years.
Batman was always their most popular and strongest charector DC had,far more so than Superman,as the 3rd reboot with Christian Bale as the Dark Knight and the very successful XBox 360 games have proved.Get Mr Bale back in the role of The Dark Knight DC and do it quick or your heading for a multi million pound flop
