Trivia

(at around 27 mins) When Officer Blake talks about "giant alligators" being in the sewer line, this may be an intentional nod towards Batman villain Killer Croc, who Bane out-wrestled to become head of Gotham's gangland. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 35 mins) Throughout the movie, Blake is seen carrying a Glock 17 pistol. When Gordon and Blake are talking in the apartment, you can see Blake's handcuff and spare magazine holder. The magazine in the holder is not a Glock magazine. See more »

Dark knight rises
11 February 2021 | by sjwmsjwSee all my reviews

There's a common misconception when it comes to The Dark Knight Rises especially regarding how it tackles it's themes and story: this film isn't trying to raise the stakes, it's trying to add to the story, in this case his loneliness, his sense of powerlessness.

Hans Zimmer's score is some of the best I've ever heard, Wally Pfister peaked, had the best choreographed action scenes out of the whole trilogy, had the most emotionally resonant story out of the trilogy for sure. A very well made and satisfying conclusion that makes this trilogy one of the best .. ever?

A perfect comic book movie, certainly one of my favourites of all time
