“In the final part of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, Batman must face a foe unlike any he has ever faced. In The Dark Knight, Batman saved Gotham, but could not save himself. Taking the blame for Harvey Dent's crimes, he was hunted by the Police, and thus had to leave the task of protecting Gotham in Gordon's hands. After what seemed like ages, Gordon finally brought peace to Gotham, and it was enough to convince the Dark Knight that Gotham was safe and that Bruce Wayne need never put on the Batsuit again. However, eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, a new foe emerges, and threatens to destroy Gotham. When this masked foe Bane proves too much for Gordon to handle, Batman must break his 8-year exile and return to defeat Bane from fulfilling his devious plan and claim his rightful place as the true Savior of Gotham.”

Christian Bale (American Psycho, The Fighter, Terminator Salvations) as Bruce Wayne / Batman
Tom Hardy (Bronson, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Inception) as Bane:
Anne Hathaway (Alice in Wonderland, Bride Wars, Rachel Getting Married) as Selina Kyle
Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, Hesher, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) as John Blake
Michael Caine (Educating Rita, Little Voice, The Cider House Rules) as Alfred Pennyworth
Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Harry Potter, The Contender) as Commissioner James Gordon
Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption, Million Dollar Baby, Invictus) as Lucius Fox
Marion Cotillard (Midnight in Paris, Inception, Nine) as Miranda Tate

Before I jump into my thoughts I must warn you there may be spoilers. Christopher Nolan did a good job wrapping up the trilogy with the nearly three hour epic. Although it was lengthy I enjoyed it to the fullest. Tom Hardy did a very good Bane as he beefed himself up for the role. He wasn’t as buff as he could have been, but I guess Nolan was going for a more realistic buff. The way his voice sounds like he is in pain all the time so it is perfect for the character. Michael Caine was very emotional in Rises more so than the other two in the trilogy. The scene where he cries is pretty sad. Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman was alright but I think they could have one better. Obviously Christian Bale did a good Batman again, but one thing about his lines is the fact for obvious popularity they brought back the “where is…” bit. I’d not might if it wasn’t over done or this was the first time but you could totally tell it was put it for laughs. The person who stuck out the most to me was Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, possibly-Robin-in-future-if-there-is-a-Justice-League-movie. (don’t quote me but I’ll bet you) To be honest I didn’t think was going to be any tie in to Robin, considering Christian Bale said if Robin was in the movie he wouldn’t do it.

I really enjoyed this movie and for it being the last of the trilogy I thought it was great. I definitely recommend seeing it, but maybe with a bullet proof vest. On the topic, I am very sorry for the victims and families of those injured or killed in the shooting at the Aurora, Colorado screening. I am glad Christian Bale went to see those people and also that he did it without the press finding out until after.
