    • The Journey of Bruce Wayne:
    • Filmmakers reveal the bold creative choices that led to the stunning conclusion of Bruce Wayne's story

    Synopsis


    The Dark Knight Rises
    Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy concludes with this Warner Brothers release that finds The Dark Knight pitted against Bane, an unstoppable foe possessed of tremendous physical and intellectual strength. Nearly a decade after taking the fall for Harvey Dent's death and disappearing into the darkness, a fugitive Batman (Christian Bale) watches from the shadows as the Dent Act keeps the streets of Gotham City free of crime. Meanwhile, an elusive cat burglar seizes the chance to strike, and a masked anarchist plots a devastating series of attacks designed to lure Bruce Wayne out of the shadows. Determined not to abandon the people who he once risked his life to protect, The Dark Knight emerges from his self-imposed exile ready to fight. But Bane (Tom Hardy) is ready, too, and once Batman is within his grasp, he will do everything in his power to break Gotham City's shadowy savior. Oscar-winner Michael Caine and Gary Oldman return in a sequel also starring Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Great Movie, but Best Buy Exclusive lacking

      There is a way to solve the problem of there currently being no plans for a "The Dark Knight Rises"--Blu-ray + DVD Combo With Limited Edition Bat-Cowl Display Case that would also include "The Dark Knight Reborn". "Reborn" is a documentary on the making of "The Dark Knight Trilogy". It seems that this documentary will only be available with "TDKRises"--Limited Edition Steelbook Best Buy Exclusive. Obviously, most all of us true fans would much prefer to own the Bat-Cowl plus "Reborn", and not have pay for both the Steelbook and the Bat-Cowl just to have the coolest packaging along with the documentary. Also, I am sure that we all want to know what contents will be included in "The Dark Knight Trilogy"--Ultimate Collector's Edition Set, coming in the fall of 2013, before we decide to buy "TDKR" in December. Since these products are manufactured by Warner Bros., please go to their website, bottom of page, "Help - Tell Us What You Think", take a survey and send them the following letter in the alloted text boxes. You may also go to the WBShop site, to the bottom of the page, find "Customer Service - Contact Us", and paste the same text into a message and send it to them. Feel free to write your own message, if you can. You may also print the following message and mail it to Warner Home Video, 4000 Warner Blvd., Burbank CA 91522. If enough of us participate, we may get the results that we deserve! Dear Warner Bros. Home Video, According to the BestBuy website, "The Dark Knight Rises"--Blu-ray + DVD Combo with Limited Edition Bat-Cowl Display Case will NOT include "The Dark Knight Reborn", which is a documentary on the making of "The Dark Knight Trilogy". So Far, "Reborn" will only be available with "The Dark Knight Rises"--Best Buy Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. We the fans of the Trilogy and the loyal followers of you century's great roster of movies respectfully request that the Bat-Cowl Limited Edition be made to include the coveted "Dark Knight Reborn" Blu-ray Disc. While Steelbook packaging is cool, we many serious collectors will definitely much prefer to have the Bat-Cowl displayed on our shelves. But we do not wish to have to double-dip and buy both the Steelbook and Bat-Cowl, just to have the most prestigious packaging plus the documentary. If it is too late in the manufacturing process to have the "Reborn" BDs inserted into the Bat-Cowl boxes, then they may attached to outside of the box within a simple cardboard sleeve or else distributed in limited quantities to the first-coming customers. I am confident that Warner Bros. Home Video can find of a way to resolve this problem. Furthermore, please post the product details and box contents list for "The Dark Knight Trilogy"--Ultimate Collector's Edition Gift Set, which is purported to be released in early 2013, as soon as possible, hopefully before December 4th, which is when "Dark Knight Rises" will be released on Blu-ray and DVD. Doing so will enable us Batfans to decide on whether to acquire "TDKR" in December, or to wait for the Trilogy Ultimate Set. If there are some other powers that be that we should instead be contacting in regards to these issues, please forward this message to them or else let us know their names, phone numb#rs and/or e-mail addresses. Thank You So Much for hearing us! Sincerely, (type your name here)

      Not as good as its predecessor

      You sacrifice your name, your body, the love of your life to achieve one goal. You achieved it, but someone later puts those achievements at risk. What do you do? Come out of hiding or run? Bruce Wayne (played by Christian Bale) has abandoned the cape and mask so that Batman could never be arrested and prosecuted for the crimes committed by Harvey Dent that he took the fall for. He’s been living like a recluse for eight years while Commissioner James Gordon (played by Gary Oldman) has all but extinguished violent crime in Gotham. Gordon wants to reveal the truth during a celebration honoring Harvey Dent but decides the city isn’t ready for it. At that same celebration, a congressman is abducted and, while investigating the crime, Gordon is shot. The patrolman who rescues him, John Blake (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is promoted to detective and told he’s to report directly the Commissioner. Blake (Gordon-Levitt) knows Batman’s true identity and pleads with Wayne to once again don the cape and mask. Commissioner Gordon echoes those sentiments when Wayne, incognito, visits him in the hospital. The kidnapper, a terrorist and mercenary intent on destroying the city, is Bane. Bane (played by Tom Hardy) was once a member of the League of Shadows before being expelled by his and Bruce Wayne’s mentor, Ra’s al Ghul. Bane was hired by a competitor of Wayne Enterprises, John Daggett (played by Ben Mendelsohn). We’re also introduced to a master thief working with Bane, Selina Kyle (played by Anne Hathaway) who is, of course, Catwoman, though she’s never addressed by that name. I was a latecomer to Nolan’s new take on the Batman story. I saw The Dark Knight in theaters, but I didn’t catch Batman Begins, the first film in the series, until it began airing on cable. Once I did, I bought the DVD. I bought The Dark Knight on DVD the day of its release. Bale as Batman was amazing in the first two films and he is just as good, if not better, in the third. Hardy as Bane is nowhere near as mesmerizing as Heath Ledger’s interpretation of The Joker, but he is far more intimidating. Hathaway as Catwoman is the best version of this character that I have seen to date. Of course, the other versions, portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry, were beautiful but one-dimensional. I was hoping this film would be better than its predecessor. Perhaps it’s the notion that this means the story is over, but I thought The Dark Knight was the best in the series. That said, Rises is brilliant and anyone who’s seen the previous films should see this latest one as soon as possible.

      BATMAN LIVES!

      *New edit* Below there are MOVIE SPOILERS. This review was written before the release of the actual film, but all content has been proven correct. MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT!! Batman gets crippled by Bane, but he later makes a comeback and retrains himself to be Batman. Gordon (now mayor of Gotham) gets shot but survives also. At first, Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) is bad, but she eventually becomes Batman's comrade and she actually kills Bane. Lucius Fox lives also. Come to find out, Ra's al Ghul's daughter, Talia al Ghul, and Bane have taken over the League of Shadows and plan to complete Talia's father's plans by destroying Gotham. The reason Talia and Bane are such good friends is because Bane had, years before, aided her in escaping a huge foreign prison. At first, Bane succeeds: he traps the Gotham City Police Force underground in a violent series of explosions; he puts the rich and powerful on a trial which is presided by Jonathan Crane (aka the scarecrow). The US tries to sneak Special Forces into Gotham disguised as workers, but Bane and his men stop them and hang them from a bridge. Then, Batman escapes the prison bane put him in; he returns to Gotham and fights Talia in trying to stop a nuclear-type bomb from destroying the city. He succeeds, but he is apparently killed in the explosion as he pilots the plane away from Gotham. At the end, Gordon sees Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle in a Paris coffee shop.

      Not being a huge fan of superhero movies, I didn't have much expectations for Batman Begins. However viewing the 2005 Christopher Nolan production, I was pleasantly shocked. Then after my huge expectations for, "The Dark Knight", Christopher Nolan blew my expectations to the dust. Will the same happen with the 3rd and last film, "The Dark Knight Rises"? Quite simply, Yes! My big expectations were once again, blown away. What a production! This is a true cinematic experience, to behold. The movie exceeded my expectations in terms of action, and entertainment. The editing, sound, score, visuals, direction and action are all top notch. The film contains a fine cast of talented actors. Christian Bale, of course still makes is a great Batman. Michael Cain is fantastic, as he always is. He gives such a powerful performance, he really ought to be considered for an Oscar nomination. Tom Hardy as Bane is utterly terrifying, at times, and completely ominous. Anne Hathaway as Catwoman/Selina Kyle is a scene stealer. She is completely engrossing. Everyone is so great, the dynamic scenes between the actors are so well done, so well written, and so well directed. The Dark Knight Rises is is emotionally riveting and amazing to view.

      Dark knight Reborn Documentary

      Posted
      DarkKnightFanatic

      I just bought this earlier today. I was assuming that the dark knight reborn doc came on the discs. But when we checked out a prompt came up and they ask you, for an additional $14.99 you can get the documentary code. You then would go on to CinemaNow and enter in the code. On the box itself, it says exclusive content and such. Nobody at the store really knew what that extra 15 bucks was for until my wife asked. We ended up getting the fee waived and got the code. However, I put the special feature disc in and the dark knight reborn doc is on the discs. SO, IF I WERE YOU DECLINE THE FEE. Or talk to a manager about it. Hope this helps!

      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.

      The Batman ends

      A lot of people harp on Nolan's Batman, but at least he did something different and saw it through to the end. You can ramble about Bruce Wayne giving up as Batman too fast, some shoehorned twists, and stylistic changes, but Nolan is not interested in doing "Comic book" Batman, he's doing his own thing. And I think he succeeded. Dark Knight Rises has an appropriate "dread" in its atmosphere, and Bruce Wayne's journey kind of makes sense. However, it doesn't feel as fresh or wonderous as previous installments. Remember all the fun as Bruce, Alfred, and Lucius tried to make new things and figure things out? All kinda gone, a very solitary-feeling movie. The "twist" character also doesn't seem to work really, as that person is revealed pretty much to get killed. Still a very emotional journey.

      Outstanding conclusion to this Batman franchise

      Posted

      This movie starts years after the Dark Knight, with a battered Bruce Wayne hiding away in Wayne Manor. Batman took the fall for the death of Harvey Dent, which allowed the Dent Act to come to fruition. As a result, Gotham City's streets have been cleared of its most dangerous criminals. However, he is eventually pulled out of reclusion when Bane (Tom Hardy) begins to terrorize the city. Bruce quickly finds out that progressive injuries, age, and his time away from being Batman have caught up with him. The question is does he still have what it takes to rid the city of its latest threat? In my opinion this is the best of Christopher Nolan's three Batman movies, and one that I recommend that you watch to find out the answer.
