The Dark Knight Rises
The Legend Ends
Following the death of District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman assumes responsibility for Dent's crimes to protect the late attorney's reputation and is subsequently hunted by the Gotham City Police Department. Eight years later, Batman encounters the mysterious Selina Kyle and the villainous Bane, a new terrorist leader who overwhelms Gotham's finest. The Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.

He did it. He actually did it.
I cannot believe I'm even typing this, but it's true...
Christopher Nolan successfully crammed 10 pounds of shit into a 5 pound bag.
Didn't even think it was possible!
Is every citizen of Gotham City a fucking idiot? Let me count the ways...
The first example goes all the way back to Batman Begins, when Bruce Wayne disappears for something like 8 years, then comes back one day without anybody asking where he was. They act like he just got back from taking a piss. And on the very same day that Bruce returns, Batman shows up. What a coincidence! To a person who doesn't have a broken brain, it's a lot more...but…
Before I start this review, I’d like to say the following: If you liked or even loved the film, that is fine. I frankly envy you. This is a film I wanted to love. But I didn’t, for reasons I will go into during this review.
Previous to this rewatch, I had last seen The Dark Knight Rises at the midnight premiere. The idea of a filmmaker finishing off a comic book trilogy and summing up their run of a character was great. But alas, I was disappointed with The Dark Knight Rises, because what we’re left with is a film that’s pretty dramatically unsatisfying. The reason I could enjoy Batman Begins was because aside from logic fails, that film…
After seven years and three films, Nolan’s Batman journey is over. The question is, is The Dark Knight Rises the send off the trilogy deserves? Sadly the answer to that question is a crushing no. Having re-watched both previous films this week I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this is the weakest film of the trilogy, and to make things worse, it isn’t even a good film, period.
In many ways the film’s problems existed throughout the series - needlessly long, inconsistent pacing and incoherent and bitty plotting - yet here they are magnified, partly because they are at their very worst and partly because it also lacks the compelling characters and exciting set pieces that…
I'm Gotham's reckoning.
Superhero films finally have a good trilogy. I'm not proclaiming this on the same level as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy or the original Star Wars Trilogy, but I'm saying this is by far the best superhero trilogy we've ever had. With that said, it's competition for that title wasn't exactly stiff. I'm also a huge Marvel Comics fanboy so it hurts a little admitting that.
The story is epic in scope and takes full advantage of it's staggering 164 min run time. It's not only a sequel, but it truly ties into both previous films and brings all three movies together as a true trilogy. If you're thinking about re-watching Batman Begins and The…
Magnificent conclusion to the Nolan trilogy.
If Batman was the star of Batman Begins and The Joker ruled The Dark Knight, then this film is the story of Bruce Wayne .
Awesome and audacious filmmaking at the highest level.
I demand being able to press a button when posting a review that says ‘Involuntary Rewatch’ I won’t go into details, but let’s just say it involved a ‘friend’, a ‘movie night’ and the sentence ‘As long as we watch something fun!’ (uttered by yours truly). No, I did not pick the film.
After seeing the Dark Knight Rises the first time in the cinema, I rated it one and a half stars and felt it to be a deeply flawed film. Well, not to my surprise, I still feel the same after this rewatch. I won’t rehash my old review as all I have to say on the film is said there and many others have already worded their…
It was a bit tiresome to watch because of its slow paced narrative, but the well put construction of the plot made it bearable. However, I found Bane's motives somewhat confusing and not very well justified (according to him), but Hardy's performance kind of made up for it, which was indeed very remarkable. Hathaway did a very good job adapting her character and personality to Nolan's vision, however the relationship between Wayne and her comes out of nowhere since there wasn't a real hint of any sexual tension between them. Oldman was great too, and the rest of the cast was OK, but the thing I really liked was the ending; it was really unexpected and I think it was very suitable for Nolan's goodbye to this trilogy.
Nolan know how to connect movies.
One of the best trilogy.
Probably the worst of the 3 Nolan Bat-films, but I'm not a huge Batman fan, so who am I to say?

The Dark Knight shits the bed
The Dark Knight Rises is a turd, a turd served Right to christopher nolan fanboys in which they ate right up. The Dark Knight is phenominal film, now take that film and shit all over it and the dark knight rises is whats left.
Creio que Hans Zimmer é altamente subestimado neste filme.
Três temas discretos divididos pelas personagens principais do filme e a associação do leitmotiv usando "x" instrumentos de acordo com o submundo de cada personagem (o da catwoman é extraordinário..)
Pena a falta de versatilidade no desenvolvimento musical dos temas.. Por exemplo ouço o tema da catwoman e muito facilmente posso escolher qualquer tema do filme Sherlock Holmes onde foram usados os mesmos compassos e as mesmas progressões.
O argumento deste filme não é tão solido mesmo quando suportado pelo mundo da DC Comics como os anteriores. No entanto continua a ser para mim um filme extraordinário.
PS: Pior filme da carreira da Marion Cotillard?
pretty whack but i still love it bc anne hathaway is wearing latex and im weak
Oh, it was OK. I still like DC movies better than Marvel movies, but that's not saying much. Bane felt a little random to me, and it's a shame they brought back the Ras Al Gul stuff because all of that is dumb. Catwoman was ok - I liked their dynamic. The batman voice is still so silly. I hope this gets rebooted soon. I wish we could have a lower stakes thing every once in a while - no bridges or buildings exploding, just some lives at risk.
I was surprised - maybe this is always the case in Batman - but the politics in this movie are super conservative. Is it always that way?
It really is that bad, guys.
I fully acknowledge all the problems in this movie, and they do not bother me.
Nolan rounds out his grounded Batman trilogy in epic fashion, pitting Bats against his masked for Bane. We get the best cinematic Catwoman to date, building and adding to the Gordon/Batman relationship, and a great set up that will never be follwed through. Nolan knows how to shoot a movie, and having Wally Pfister as your DP doesn't hurt either.
The nearly overwhelming Zimmer score being abesnt from the first Bane v Bats fight is a great touch, adding a sense of dred and danger to the moment.
The first 1012 films are from The 1,000 Greatest Films list, and maintain the original order. The films that follow…
There are two things I like the most in this life:
Horror Movies and Comic Books, in that order.
