Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, the Dark Knight is forced to return from his imposed exile to save Gotham City from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman.
Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent's crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane's plans to destroy the city. Written by
When Bane rips the photo of Harvey Dent in half he does so vertically through the middle of Harvey's face, replicating his transition to Two-Face at the end of The Dark Knight (2008). See more »
In "Batman Begins" Lucius Fox says about the Batsuit: "This sucker will stop a knife." In "The Dark Knight Rises", Batman gets stabbed. However, in "The Dark Knight", Fox gives Batman a new suit that makes him more agile but also "more vulnerable to knives and gunfire". If Batman kept his old suit, it's likely that the knife would've been less effective. See more »
I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone... inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.

This movie will blow you away. Nolan has done it again; this time, better. A brilliant array of cinematic magic to bring an outstanding superhero to the big screen. I was fortunate to be able to attend an advanced screening of this spectacular movie in IMAX. A must watch and a truly astonishing thrill in IMAX.The Dark Knight Rises is phenomenal and makes other superhero movies look like rubbish. Comparing this movie to previous parts in the franchise - this particular film is of a much greater level. The acting displays are superb and Bane's role is particularly astonishing. Nolan has taken brilliance to a whole new level. A must watch for anyone. 10/10.
