The Dark Knight Rises
2012
Still grief-stricken over past losses, billionaire Bruce Wayne is conflicted about once again donning the cape of his lethal alter ego, Batman, but defends Gotham when it's threatened by new foes such as the slinky Catwoman and the sinister Bane.

Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

I really can't say enough good things about this movie. The writing was just absolutely superb in my opinion. I am saddened that Nolan and the gang will be leaving the series.

I only had one problem with believability [sic], but I have put that in the discussion thread. Otherwise I loved loved loved it. This has been a great summer for movies and TDKR did not disappoint.

Best I've seen this year. I hope it wins the Oscar.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

I expected Nolan's third Batman film to be excellent, and it is. I didn't expect it to tie in so tightly to the previous two films, or to bind them together more than they were on their own. This really does seal Nolan's trilogy as the best superhero adaptation that Hollywood has made.

As for the finale, it's intense and scary, in all the right ways. Bane is a superb villain, easily outmatching Batman and forcing him to catch up, something he never had to do before. If he is not as charismatic as Heath Ledger's Joker, Catwoman's lame attempts at corny jokes make it clear how unwelcome a sense of humor is in this grim epic. The subtext of terrorism and class warfare just makes it connect all the more to our real-life anxieties. I was exhilarated by this movie.

Samir Mehta: “It was ok.”

Frustrating. Never matches the first two films but has wonderful moments.
