Having been a huge fan of Chris Nolan's previous two Batman films, couldn't wait to watch this when it was released. And The Dark Knight Rises didn't disappoint. The conclusion to the trilogy is fitting for the franchise, for Batman, and for Bruce Wayne (though I have read rumors that Nolan might come back for another film in the series or maybe a Batman/Superman film - hope some of this is true!).

The film starts with a frail Bruce Wayne having pretty much retired and living a private life eight years after he eliminated the Joker. The peaceful Gotham City where police officers feel they will soon be "chasing overdue library books" is rocked by a series of events orchestrated by the ferocious and calculating villain, Bane.

The pace of this film is slightly slower (and heavier) compared to the previous two films, partly because there are a lot more characters in this film, and Nolan being the master storyteller that he is, gives each character enough time in the film. It could seem a bit lengthy at 3 hours of thereabout because of this. Lucius Fox and Alfred return in their usual roles of being Batman's brains and soul respectively. Michael Caine's performance as Alfred is simply remarkable even though his screen time is somewhat limited in the film. Christian Bale, as usual, has done a great job portraying the battles within Bruce Wayne - overcoming his hears and rising from being as good as dead to come back to save his beloved city. His character comes a full circle from the first film as Thomas Wayne's words "why do we fall down Bruce" echo through this film and Bruce seemingly understands their meaning here as he prepares to pick himself up and "rise".

New characters added a refreshing touch to the series. Anne Hathaway is brilliant in her role as Selina Kyle.

As someone of the unpopular minority who didn't like Christopher Nolan's previous Batman film 'The Dark Knight' (but really liked 'Batman Begins') I find 'The Dark Knight Rises' a pleasant surprise. It carries a lot of the elements of the first two films, especially TDK's darker tone but manages to off-set it's self-seriousness with a strong story, terrific action-scenes and characters I wanted to root for!

The story of 'The Dark Knight Rises' takes place eight years after the events of 'The Dark Knight' Gotham Ciy is seemingly crime free and the Batman hasn't been seen since (still wanted as a fugitive after the events of TDK). In steps Bane: a super-strong, methodical terrorist leader intent on destroying Gotham and ends up forcing Batman/Bruce Wayne out of retirement. There's a lot of elements at work in this dynamic story (taking obvious influences from the Batman comics Knightfall, No Man's Land and Dark Knight Returns) and the movie's almost 3-hour length is felt, but Nolan's strong directing and script manage to bring it all together and he keeps things moving at a brisk pace.

As much as I like the story in 'The Dark Knight Rises' it's the characters I found myself most vested in. Regular greats Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman return as Jim Gordan and Lucius Fox, while Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays honest cop John Blake and Anne Hathaway the thief Selina Kyle (each giving the film both an every-person to follow and moments of comic-relief). Marion Cotillard gives protagonist Bruce Wayne a business partner as well as a love-interest in Miranda Tate. Tom Hardy doesn't make Bane as memorable as Heath Ledger's Joker (no one could) but he's an imposing presence and a terrific foil to Batman in terms of strength and ingenuity.

Not before the release of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises did I once give a flying crap about Batman--other than when I would watch the cartoon on Saturday mornings as a kid. I adore this trilogy and how it so tightly mirrors our real world in so many ways, both good and ugly. The Dark Knight Rises is the darkest of the three films and I appreciate what it has to offer, especially in our current century, when so much is unbalanced and so many are without hope. Definitely a must-see. In fact, see it several times; you'll get more out of it with each viewing.

I have been a huge Batman fan since I was a kid. From the comics, to the movies, to the cartoons and the games, but I absolutely loved this series the most. This series really hit the darker side of Batman and gave it a little more of a realistic touch. Batman The Dark Knight Rises, in my opinion, made Bane one of the scariest, most intense villains in any super hero movie I've seen in 2012. I think this movie did a great job ending this specific series, and even still it left me wanting more, but I was very satisfied with the ending. It was intense, fun, and even amusing at times. All around I think its a great movie, a great series and for me it was a definite buy! Hope everyone else can enjoy this movie/series as much as I did.

I must admit, I was not one of the fanboys that freaked over how amazing "The Dark Knight" was. I loved Heath ledger and that version of The Joker is absolutely one of the most iconic performances of all time, but I thought the film could have EASILY been 20 minutes shorter. "TDKR" was even more overblown and overwrought. I tend to judge a comic book film by how good the villain is, and in this case, Bane sucked. Comic book villains almost always have some murky "plan" that they want to exercise and their motivations are almost always very muddled. So, apparently Bane gets together a group of terrorists to first cut off Gotham from the rest of the world so they can let all the criminals out, trap the cops underground, kill all rich people and ultimately nuke the place? Umm okay.

The saving grace here is Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Joseph Gordon Levitt as good guy John Blake. I found Batman whiny and annoying through most of this film, when he wasn't flat on his back shrieking in pain.

I am of the opinion that a hero needs to "Rise" and stalk hoity-toity directors like Christopher Nolan. I call this dastardly foe THE EDITOR who will swoop in and slice extraneous plot developments and entire characters. THIS FILM WAS TOO LONG. Any impact it may have had was completely destroyed by the number of times I rolled my eyes and checked my watch. Sometimes, shorter is better.

The way it all wrapped up in the end was kinda neat, with the important people being clued in to the truth and Gotham getting an immortal, infallible hero to worship and the whole John Blake / Robin thing. But it was almost too little too late.
