The Dark Knight Rises captures the spirit -- and cultural anxieties -- of the times.
May 26, 2013
The final installment in Christopher Nolan's pitch-black trilogy manages to be both relevant and topical while slavishly adhering to the stodgy tropes of the genre.

Gloom never looked as good as it does in the mesmerizing "The Dark Knight Rises."

Even with its flaws, The Dark Knight Rises is a solid film. It just fails to live up to the magnificent legacy created by the first two movies in the trilogy. To be fair, they were incredibly hard acts to follow.

Every facet of this impressive piece reaffirms the same thematic gristle as it forces the viewer to chew on the notion of personal responsibility.

The Dark Knight Rises is all about risks, and there are payoffs and failures to go with it.

This is a solid film, taking itself seriously and asking that we do the same.

It's not un-entertaining. Exhausting, a bit, but not un-entertaining.

An ambitious, honourable and satisfying conclusion to this genre-defining trilogy.

The Dark Knight Rises directly counters the arguments made against The Dark Knight. Maybe, sometimes, it is better to leave the demons unvanquished.

Technically, The Dark Knight Rises is a thick leatherbound volume with gilded pages, though flipping through it yields a story about a big bad bald man doing eeevil things until a vigilante with pointy ears comes to the rescue.

Weighed down by portentousness and momentousness. The overall story remains a bit muddled. A better trilogy-capper than a movie in its own right.
November 20, 2012
There's plenty of action, intrigue, special effects, and high-tech gadgets to maintain our attention at least in spurts.

There's enough that works in The Dark Knight Rises that I can overlook most of the more glaring flaws, but it remains to date the most disappointing film I've seen from 2012.

Nolan keeps things dark and dangerous
October 19, 2012
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.

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.

The bold, visionary film jolts us with its sense of scope, scale and social outrage that sometimes suggests novels by Charles Dickens and Victor Hugo.
