The Dark Knight Rises

BluRay Authority
18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Unless you’ve been hiding in your Bat Cave for the last year or so, you’ll know that the third and final installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy came out.  The series was first (re) launched back in 2005 when Nolan took the franchise over from Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, who turned it into more of a circus act than anything of cinematic value.  This approach has been done with The Hulk and now The Amazing Spider-Man (and soon to be Superman ) as well.

The Dark Knight Rises

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: So let's get the obvious out of the way up front. No, it's not as good as "The Dark Knight." That said, "The Dark Knight Rises" is probably as good a follow-up as you could reasonably expect, providing everything you could possibly want from a Batman film.

The Dark Knight Rises

Sound & Vision Magazine
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: But everything is about to change. A violent revolutionary named Bane (Tom Hardy) has targeted Gotham with an elaborate, horrible plan that goes beyond even what Ra’s Al Ghul attempted in Batman Begins. Circumstances draw Batman out of retirement, and his inevit- able confrontation with Bane ends badly, leaving Wayne a broken man stuck in hellish prison halfway around the world, forced to watch helplessly as his beloved city is destroyed.

The Dark Knight Rises (Blu-ray)

6 December 2012
  • Summary: My fellow reviewer still enjoyed The Avengers more, but that was a superhero move, and, yes, I still feel it stands as the greatest superhero movie to date. The Avengers is all about super powers and super battles, incredibly fun and as light as parfait. Nolan, however, transcended this genre and brought incredible social relevance to the story of a man without superpowers who dresses up like a bat to fight crime.

The Dark Knight Rises Review

DoBlu
4 December 2012
  • Excerpt: There are two journeys in Dark Knight Rises . One sees Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) mentally and physically bringing himself back into fighting shape after Gotham found itself in an extended period of piece. He’s beaten, battered, and certainly cannot go heliskiing. Then there’s Bane (Tom Hardy). Fitted with a mask to hide his pain, his journey is less direct.

The Dark Knight Rises (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
4 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Several years after the events of The Dark Knight , things in Gotham seem to be relatively stable. Galvanized by the shocking death of golden boy Harvey Dent, the populace has seemingly drifted away from the crime and decay that gave birth to the need for a man in a bat costume to drop mob bosses off fire escapes.

  • Conclusion: The Dark Knight Rises is, without a doubt, one of the best films of 2012 and a close second to its predecessor both in the franchise and in Nolan's rich résumé. This is the satisfying ending the trilogy deserved and it cements the series as one of cinema's greatest.

The Dark Knight Rises

AV Club
18 July 2012
  • Excerpt: As The Dark Knight Rises brings a close to Christopher Nolan’s staggeringly ambitious Batman trilogy, it’s worth remembering that director chose The Scarecrow as his first villain—not necessarily the most popular among the comic’s gallery of rogues, but the one who set the tone for entire series.

The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
19 December 2009
  • Summary: It's hard to imagine a time when a Christopher Nolan-helmed Batman film wasn't a sure thing. And yet seven short years ago Batman Begins was a risk, and not just in the eyes of short-sighted box office analysts. Warner Brothers and DC Comics executives, Hollywood insiders, journalists, critics, audiences, even the filmmakers themselves... few were willing to go on record with any certainty as to how Batman Begins would resonate or perform.

Dark Knight Rises, The

Empire Online
22 December 2012
  • Conclusion: With spectacle in abundance and sexiness in (supporting) parts, this is superhero filmmaking on an unprecedented scale. Rises may lack the surprise of Begins or the anarchy of Knight, but it makes up for that in pure emotion. A fitting epitaph for the hero Gotham deserves.
