The Dark Knight Rises last edited by aphillips17 on 08/09/18 01:02PM View full history

"Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ The Dark Knight Rises is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane."


Loosely inspired by story-lines such as "Knightfall", "The Dark Knight Returns", "Cataclysm", "Legacy" and "No Man's Land", the conclusion of The Dark Knight Trilogy pits a retired Bruce Wayne against a new breed of terrorist, who threatens to shatter the very fabric of Gotham City and bring the world to it's knees. Allied with a rookie cop and the sly Catwoman, Batman must break free of the shackles of his past and give his all to stop Bane, a beefed up criminal mastermind with sinister connections to old enemies, and someone close to Bruce Wayne himself.

Robin is a cop named Jon Blake who has the heart of a hero....

This movie Is Really bad... 0

This movie is a inconsistent mess.The plot holes are so big that you can swim in them.This what happens when you try to shove multiple story arcs in one film.TDKR has the same problem as X-men Last Stand.X-men Last Stand had two arcs shoved in. While the The Dark Knight Rises had a at least four arcs. It could be more arcs shoved here.I really don't know. The movie took things all over the place. Its not a consistent story.Batman moves slower than ever before. Not to mention Christopher Nolan ha...
