A Fitting Conclusion To One Of The Greatest Trilogies of All Time,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Dark Knight Rises [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Christopher Nolan accomplishes the impossible by bringing his third and final installment of the Dark Knight legacy to a satisfying and extremely entertaining close. Christian Bale gives, in my opinion, his best performance as the title hero, and while Tom Hardy's Bane may not have the unpredictability and chaotic nature seen by the Joker, he does a great job at coming off terrifying and menacing, all with a mask covering most of his face. The film doesn't quite meet the standard set so impossibly high by it's predecessor, but it doesn't need to. While it may not stand quite as tall on it's own, it concludes the trilogy in a spectacular and satisfying fashion. It's a remarkable feat to string together three movies so seamlessly, which only increases by respect and love of Nolan's films.
The BD set itself has a lot of great extras, including a bunch of featurettes on the making of the film. I've always been a fan of Nolan's work because of his insistency to do as much as possible without CGI. The making of the plane scene is astounding and it's remarkable that only a few shots within that scene include the use of CGI. I also enjoyed getting an inside look into how Hans Zimmer created the score for the film.
This is a great set if you're looking to finish your collection of the Dark Knight trilogy. The movie is great and the features are very entertaining. I highly recommend it.
