Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, the Dark Knight, with the help of the enigmatic Selina, is forced from his imposed exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
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
Cinematographer Wally Pfister expressed interest in shooting the entirety of the film in the IMAX format, as both Pfister and Christopher Nolan expressed distaste for shooting the film in 3-D. Ultimately, the film would feature approximately 72 minutes of IMAX footage, while the rest was shot in a combination of 35mm and 70mm, as IMAX cameras proved to be too noisy for shooting the films dialogue scenes.

In the opening plane sequence, the main CIA operative fires a gun right by one of the prisoners' head out the plane door. His gun does not recoil from the shot, but a gun shot is heard. Later, we see him recock the hammer, an action that would have been unnecessary if the gun had actually been fired. 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.

I knew right from the opening shot of Gordon's eulogy "I knew Harvey Dent..." with the breaking to form the Bat symbol, that this was going to be epic. It was obvious from the beginning that the film legend. In fact, I loved it and I think it is the best movies The Dark Knight. I absolutely Loved it, and I'm glad they really humanized Batman and limited his screen time in this film. Some "comic booky-actiony" type fans didn't like the small amount of time we actually see Batman, but that was the whole point of the trilogy! The ending, where Foley says "there's only one police in this town" while doing their march against Bane was really awesome. The ending was perfect. But the movie has missed the Joker. I say as both a Batman fanboy and especially a Nolan fanboy that this is the perfect trilogy.
