About this movie

Christopher Nolan returns to complete the Gotham trilogy that launched with Batman Begins and reached the stratosphere with the billion dollar blockbuster The Dark Knight. Inception's Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt join the cast regulars along with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) and Tom Hardy as the powerful villain Bane. Christian Bale prowls the night as the Caped Crusader, fighting crime and corruption with the help of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman.

This is the perfect end to the best Batman movies out there. It completes one of the greatest trilogies in cinema's history. Christopher Nolan has proven to be one of the greatest film directors by giving Batman a new life with this trilogy. I have experienced watching this movie with D-Box on opening night and I still remember this movie brought me the very best experience I have ever had in a theatre. I even went back to watch this film a second time on an Imax screen. Every action scenes are breathtaking and spectacular. Micheal Caine's performance is brilliant and Christian Bale as usual embodies both Batman and Bruce Wayne perfectly. I truly enjoyed all three Batman films but the Dark Knight Rises is my favorite for multiple reasons. As a peace officer myself, I found the climatic scene at the end very special where the police forces are freed after spending weeks underground and go all toghether fighting to reestablish order. They seem weak but still motivated knowing they'll be fighting for their lives. But at the very moment they see the symbol, which points to Batman's intervention, the police forces get energized and willing to fight more than ever for what is right. Another poignant scene is when Bane completely breaks Batman in half leaving him crippled. It was something no other vilain had ever done. No one ever stood with Batman in a fist fight. To watch Batman lose and have his cowl broken was something special and emotional. It lead us to see Bruce Wayne gradually recover from an impossible injury and face his fears like never before. Just thinking about the last jump he had to do without being attached gives me goosebumps. It was a do or die moment. The relationship with Catwoman is also very interesting to watch. I loved when they escaped toghether with Batman's flying vehicle. Anne Hathaway filled Catwoman's outfit more than fine. The arrival of the new policeman John Blake was a nice introduction to the Robin character. The twist at the end with Miranda Tate and the surprise at the very end made this film even more perfect for me. It is almost flawless. I give it a well deserved 5 stars!

One of the best conclusions to a trilogy since Lord of the Rings. Brilliant, emotional, intense, exciting conclusion to the epic trilogy that redefined superhero films

My favourite of the trilogy, lots of weight with a strong arc for Batman, and the best on screen portrayal of bane yet (not that there's much competition)
