Bane has arrived and plans a campaign of terror that will push the city to its limit. Batman will once again take the mantle of hero in order to save his city. This is so far one of the best movie of 2012.the score is good and the directing is well done.

All Good Things Come in Threes

This film was never going to be as excellent as 'The Dark Knight'. Even the most devout Nolan fan, in their most elated state of creator worship, would have been all too aware of this film's inevitable failure to top it's critical darling of a predecessor. Setting this aside, 'The Dark Knight Rises' still ends up being a film of tremendous quality. Most blockbuster filmmakers state a desire to avoid CGI, but Nolan actually makes good on his word. Its spectacle recalls the motion pictures of the late, great David Lean, and its plotting has a marvelous Dickensian flavour. The script ventures through various implausibilities, but then so did 'The Dark Knight's. Add the muted, creamy visuals of cinematographer Wally Pfister, and you have a sense that the film is made with a distinct artistic ...

The legend ends: The Dark Knight Rises

"The Dark Knight Rises" leaves the early days of the superhero genre far behind, and moves into a doom-shrouded, apocalyptic future that seems uncomfortably close to today's headlines. As urban terrorism and class warfare envelop Gotham and its infrastructure is ripped apart, Bruce Wayne emerges reluctantly from years of seclusion in Wayne Manor and faces a soulless villain as powerful as he is. The film begins with many new characters, but it builds to a sensational climax.

Even though The Joker was more of a performance oriented character, that's what he is known for but Bane is more of strength, and Tom Hardy did an amazing job of getting into the shape. Also, I really think this movie had the emotional chord that struck well like Batman Begins. All of these characters and their act...

Flaws or no flaws, it's Batman.

Possible Spoilers, but who cares, we've all seen it.

I remember walking out of the theater, having witnessed The Dark Knight Rises, and thinking to myself: Wow. That was perfect.
It wasn't. I came to understand that. For a time I actually hated this film, but after another watch, it solidified itself as amazing.
When I was expecting The Dark Knight Part II, I got something different.
It's quiet, it's toned down, it's almost a character study.
Admittedly, there are problems. Yes, he mopes around for eight years, yes he got into Gotham in no time after escaping the big well (more on that later). But I am willing to forgive those errors.
Bruce Wayne once again is a person and not the Batman. We are back in Batman Begins, trying to build up a reason for our damaged hero to become a sy...

My favourite pairing is between Bane and Bruce. I find those scenes extremely thrilling and intense.

I don't think there's anything wrong with either of the Burton-directed Batman films - it wasn't until Joel Schumacher took over things that the films started to go downhill.

But I think Nolan's vision added another dimension to not just Batman, but his villains as well. Say what you will, but I think his trilogy will be a benchmark for not just all future Batman films, but super hero films in general.

The Dark Knight Rises is the best Batman movie yet. However I still have a soft spot for the first ever Batman with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. The Dark Knight Rises is compelling, story driven, great cast, I wish Michael Kane had more lines and more screen times. I would of like to see both Kane and Freeman had a scene togethe r. Nolan did a great job telling the story and directing the actors and the action scenes.  Watching the cops and the bandits going at it, that was a great sequence. Few obvious sequence I didn't like are the switching the chase scene starting from New York, all the sudden you're an L.A. that was plain view for me to see, I hope  most of the audience notices that. Overall the film was an A for me.

I've noticed that even after Bane's voice was altered, some people still had trouble understanding him.  I had no problems at all.  In fact, I could clearly understand every single word that Hardy spoke.  I thought his performance helped create a much more unique and threatening villain than I ever considered Bane to be.  What say the rest of you?

My thoughts match jsbill - I thought the movie was groundbreaking, well and truly. I went in not expecting much (I wasn't a fan of Dark Knight) and came out with tears rolling down my face. The characterisation of Bane for me was the winner, Tom Hardy does such a fantastic job of making Bane feel out of control and darned scary. Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale's chemistry was also surprisingly well done, they to me felt like they clicked and I just wanted to see more and more of them together with their little quirks. I couldn't recommend seeing it enough, although i'm sure by now most of you have seen it :)
