The film itself is the third and final instalment in Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy. It's a very good - if somewhat overly long - movie, drawing on several comic book sources (especially "Knightfall" (1993) and "No Man's Land" (1999)). The film continues the saga established in "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" ... here, a few years have passed since the Joker was defeated and Two-Face was killed. Batman has not been seen in a long time, and Bruce Wayne lives as a recluse in the re-build Wayne mansion. Unfortunately, trouble is afoot! Talia al Ghul, daughter of Ra's al Ghul (played by Liam Neeson), now heads the League of Shadows and, with Bane as her henchman, she's decided to destroy Gotham City - and finish what her father started. Batman must do what he does best - figure out what's going on, draw on his physical skills and technology, and defeat the villains!
The movie has several sub-plots - concerning such characters as Catwoman, and police officer John Blake (who's shown, in the final moments, to be Robin) - and it does succeed in allowing space for in-depth characterisation. It's a movie with high production values, and a sophisticated storyline.Read more ›
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.
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?

Never been a Batman fan, but this trilogy if watched, will leave you struggling not to be a fan.
With that being said, this film was the weakest out of the three. Read more

I would hate to be stuck in a lift with Christopher Nolan ... he is obsessed with overtalking. Maybe he would have made better films in the silent era. Read morePublished 20 days ago by scott c.
It's not bad, just about an hour too long for actual plot substance. In fact, plot, it very lacking. Rather boring.Published 24 days ago by Justin Tuijl
