Watch this film, relax about it, there'll be something for you. Go into it too critically, and you may wish you hadn't bothered.

All that is necessary to say about this movie has been said, (except perhaps that the Blackgate Prison on Gotham would appear to be a Guantanamo Bay analogue, and therefore the Dent Act is the legislation that allowed Gitmo to be put in place.) I liked the film a lot, but not necessarily as a political statement… watching it was an enjoyable experience, and I'd watch it again. It can be interpreted on a number of levels, it stands up well enough alongside the latest Batman offerings… all well and good. The length isn't so much a problem as the plot-holes. It's Batman however, and plot-holes will always be there. While some people say that it needed editing, I think rewriting would have been more appropriate. Just enough to close up the biggest holes would have been fine. (For example, the cops trapped in tunnels? They get dug out from the mainland side… it's nicer that way.) As it is, Christopher Nolan did what was necessary to finish off his trilogy and offered a different side of Batman for the audience, but in the process engaged in sub-par story-telling and unneccessary detail. All the moves were logical in relation to the overarching vision, but the logic is a little twisted and self-fulfilling. In other words, the story could have been more succinct and natural. Okay, forget it. The film was a box-office success, and to some extent a critical success. The acting is just fine, so all you have to do is put your brain in neutral, don't question it, and there's kick's a-plenty to be had, five stars worth of kicks, in fact. Start to question the film's inconsistencies however, and it's all over, one star.

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.

This is a review of the "The Dark Knight Rises - Limited Edition Steelbook" Blu-ray. This is a deluxe item, comprising of the 2-disc film set in the case. The imagery on the steelbook is fantastic, depicting Batman engaged in conflict with Bane. While I think this is a very nice item, it is rather expensive - at £25. You can buy the standard Blu-ray of this film for under £10 ... so unless you're a collector, I wouldn't recommended this particular edition. On the positive side, it is region free - so plays in all Blu-ray machines.

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.
