Dark Knight Rises Review

Dark Knight Rises


“A vigilante is just a man lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be destroyed, or locked up. But if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can’t stop you, then you become something else entirely… A legend, Mr. Wayne”

Ra’s al Ghul

Dark Knight Rises takes place after eight years from the death of Harvey Dent which Batman took the blame, turning him into a mask vigilante and Gotham City becomes a safe palce to live in, while Bruce Wayne is in hibernation and retired Batman.

In turn of events two people will pull The Batman out of his cave: Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman (Anna Hathaway) a sexy burglar & Bane (Tom Hardy) an overdosed masked terrorist who planed to put Gotham in Ground Zero.With that said I’ll leave the rest of the excitement to rest the of you.

Dark Knight vs Bane



Dark Knight Rises is a dark and one hell of an emotional film, it’s like reading a Graphic Novel in steroids. Christopher Nolan took a grand scale in this last chapter of his Batman saga, from its production set, action sequence, to the incredible cast and of course a high-quality story.

The film impacts on the story of both Batman & Bruce Wayne, tortured soul of Bruce Wayne and a fallen Knight. Batman got hurt so much that it’s hard to see him as a Hero but  just a Man that has his own downfall, vulnerability and anger. Even though  the plot put much about the protagonist; the movie didn’t neglect to give us the chase we want from the twist and turns of the story, exciting action scenes to the heartwarming conversation of Bruce and Alfred and the chemistry of Batman & Catwoman we’ve been looking forward to.


Bruce & Selina Kyle

What’s also remarkable about the film is the incredible performance of the cast, Christian Bale still gives a significant performance as the Batman & beaten Bruce Wayne, Tom Hardy did a good job portraying Bane as mercenary hulking force of nature, as well as the returning cast of: Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth (you just can’t help but listen to this guy every word he says in the movie), Gary Oldman as Commissioner Jim Gordon with the new cast: Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate new member of Wayne Enterprice, Joseph Gordon-Levitt  as John Blake who played an optimistic and hotheaded cop and of course the alluring performance of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.

He’s back

Christopher Nolan (Director), Jonathan Nolan (screenplay) & David S. Goyer (story) amp the stage with Cinematic beauty, emotional ride, action thrills (that doesn’t rely on CGI) and mind-blowing conspiracy that will put you back in your comic book moments. The legacy of Dark Knight is completed in an epic conclusion with a bow. Or is it?

Dark Knight Rises Footage

Let’s visit some of the production footage on the set of the Dark Knight Rises…

It’s good to see the Nolan is sticking with the previous Batmobile (which is more Badass & Functional) thou many of us were expecting new Designs… move along….

Now this is were the rubber meets the road, I’ve always get excited were the Hero gets a lot of damages from the villain and as for Batman his going to the Batcave with dislocated and broken bones along side with the Battle Ravage Batmobile thanks to Bane. I’am not saying this is going to be part of the movie but some of us are hoping to witness this in live action.

Dark Night Returns

It’s been three summers since we’ve seen the cape & cowl last flashed across the silver screen & the anticipation is killing us. With his new toys and exceptional lead actors, Such as Maggie Gyllenhaal (as Rachel Dawes thanks to her we won’t see any Dawson’s Freak acting here), Heath Ledger (with his last extra ordinary performance as the Joker), Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent/2-Face) action junkies and fan boys will get to Action in the old fashion way (with a lot of laughs). While the Dark Night crossing the line between Hero and Vigilante.

oh ahh… Thanks to Christopher Nolan for taking away those rubber nipples.. cheers!
