Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham. The Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
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
There was much speculation in the press, when Anne Hathaway was announced as Selina Kyle, if the actress would actually portray Kyle's costumed alter-ego, Catwoman. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, following her stint as host of the Academy Awards, Hathaway let slip, that her character indeed would don the Catwoman costume. See more »
When Batman flies out with the bomb at the end there is between 10 and 35 seconds on the timer (10 if you work forward from the street scene, 35 if you work back from the explosion) when he starts to accelerate away from Gotham. We were previously told that the bomb had a blast radius of six miles. There is no way he could cover the distance in that time. He would need an average speed in excess of 720MPH. In turn that would mean he would have to go supersonic, which he doesn't. 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 film was perhaps the best film I've ever seen. I even forked up the extra 40 dollars to see the entire trilogy in IMAX again on opening night. This film was just amazing in every single aspect. The story line was flawless, even leaving 'TDK' in shadows, it was simply blood pumping, leaving you at the edge of your seat every single second. The pacing was perfect for the story, it progressed the plot in such a way for you to be able to see all this writing presented magically. The Legnth was 2 hours 45 minutes, and honestly, I wish it never ended. I wouldn't mind seeing a 4 hour movie. Tom Hardy was able to execute emotion and intimidate the audience using just his eyes and forehead. Christian Bale simply gave the best performance he's ever done to date. Anne Hatheway has gotten a lot of complaints and misjudgments, she was the best Cat Woman to date, BY FAR. Joseph Gordan Levitt was just perfect for his role, and of course Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman brought another great performance, as well as all the other actors. The special effects were breath taking, better than any I've ever witnessed, including Avatar. Hans Zimmer brings another great score for the film, the best work he's done on the entire trilogy. This film will go in different directions then you will expect, and will leave you KNOWING that this is the best film of all. It beats out any film I can think of in all aspects, and I have to say, it is probably my favorite film to date. Please see this in IMAX because it is simply breath taking. I've seen it in a regular theater also, and assure you that the IMAX is worth it. The Dark Knight Rose.
