Trivia

As with the previous two movies, Bruce Wayne's main car is a Lamborghini. (Batman Begins (2005): Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster, The Dark Knight (2008): Lamborghini Murciélago LP640, The Dark Knight Rises: Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4.) See more »

Goofs

Selina Kyle operates under the assumption that obtaining the "clean slate" device will erase her criminal record. Regardless of this, Selina fails to initially take into account that while the Clean Slate would theoretically erase her electronic criminal records, it will not erase Selina's overflowing binder of hard copy files the Gotham City police Department has amassed over the years, as presented to her by Blake at the airport.

A fulfilling end to a legendary trilogy!
18 July 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

As this movie was the most awaited movie of the decade, I obviously wanted to watch it as soon as possible. My friend won some contest online and so, I got to watch it a few days earlier FOR FREE.

The movie is everything you want it to be. The story is very well told and there is enough of Nolan-kind twists. Tom Hardy has some powerful lines as Bane but the enhanced voice doesn't work at all. But, he still does his character justice and performs to his full potential. For the first time in the trilogy, Batman wasn't the strongest. This gave a chance to Christian Bale to show off his acting skills without the mask and he did a fine job. The veterans Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine went about their job as if it was just another day at the office. But, a major surprise was Joseph Gordon-Levitt who portrays an ordinary police officer and pulls of an unexpectedly awesome performance.

The special effects, sound and action were out of the world. Nolan spent a lot of money and he made it visible in the movie. The movie connects all the dots from the previous movies and provides a fitting end to the saga. Although, personally I liked The Dark Knight better. But, TDKR certainly came very close it.

Finally, I would like to thank Christopher Nolan for portraying Batman in a way no one ever thought was possible and for making one the best trilogy of all time.
