Nolan keeps things dark and dangerous

Doubtless flawed and arguably overlong, it's nonetheless a personal and heartfelt ode from the director to the greatest comic-book character ever committed to paper -- and now film.

Nolan's finale isn't perfect, and may not be the greatest installment of the trilogy, but it solidifies this three-part tale of the Batman legend as one of the best ever told.

... if Gotham falls, so does Bruce Wayne. Rarely, in film, have we understood and sympathised with a hero's mission as much as Bruce's.

Shotgun Critic

The Dark Knight Rises succeeds in surpassing 2008's 'The Dark Knight' to become the best of his three films. Whether that will be enough to secure his Best Picture Oscar is frankly irrelevant - because what matters is that this is Batman's best picture.

We Got This Covered

The Dark Knight Rises is the film event of the summer. A completely satisfying piece of filmmaking that delivers so much more, making for an excellent sign off for one of cinema's finest trilogies.

[It] may be the weakest film in the trilogy, but it is still a satisfactory and exciting conclusion to what has been the greatest treatment of any superhero in film history.

Every shred of wit, mystery and humanity is pummeled out, leaving only a bullish mishmash of zeitgeisty anxiety

Disconnected significantly from the flow of logic between the first and second installments of Christopher Nolan's "Batman" films, "The Dark Knight Rises" is a disjointed mess.

Salt Lake Tribune

Nolan again transforms Bob Kane's classic DC Comics creation into a superhero for our times, flawed but fighting against supervillains and also the decay and corruption that created them.

August 25, 2012

Manages to mitigate its slew of shortcomings with a cinematically-administered, turbo-charged dose of adrenaline in the form of its sublimely symphonic finale.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Contains images destined to become classics of what we might call pretentious popular culture. For example: Batman and Bane, slugging it out on the steps of a neoclassical downtown building, in the midst of a sunlit snowstorm...

When the credits roll at the end of this overlong action epic, it feels like we've just turned the final page of an immersive novel

It addresses the darkness in everyday life, acknowledges the pain, and fights back.

The narrative sleight-of-hand aside as a finale it satisfies, even for those of us who weren't enamoured with the previous instalments.

...Nolan's final Batman film shows the inhabitants of Gotham wrestling with issues of the real world, namely: money, class, and power.

The last act of the film delivers in a shocking way. What comes before it is imperfect, but since we're talking about Nolan here, it's still worth seeing, discussing, and then seeing again.

a canny Obama-era blockbuster, feeding equally into rightwing fears of the unwashed mashes and leftwing anger at the dominance of the much loathed one-percent

A reasonably entertaining late-summer entry in the never-ending parade of youth-market fantasy sequels.
