...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.

Despite all the quality lavished on-screen, there's something missing. It's not just that the pace feels sluggish or the action sequences seem all too familiar. It's that the film feels hollow at the core.

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.

Christopher Nolan ends a near perfect trilogy of dark and intelligent Batman films with a near perfect third leg in a marvelous re-imagining of the Dark Knight...

The story is dense, overlong, and studded with references that will make sense only to those intimate with Nolan's previous excursions into Batmanhood.

Perhaps the best way to summarize the movie is to borrow the final line from one of the comics that inspired it: The Dark Knight Rises is a good film. Good enough.

... Nolan thinks small in a big way... providing an imperfect yet satisfying conclusion, and that in itself is quite an accomplishment.

Christopher Nolan's Batman saga comes to an end with this engrossing and absolutely spellbinding installment...

The weakest of Nolan's three Batmans with offputting politics and a dull villain but its fascinatingly vertical construction and Catwoman save it.

Rises a Satisfying Conclusion to Nolan's Trilogy.

It gets away from the great Christopher Nolan for a time during the film's soft middle, but he brings the conclusion to his Batman trilogy home with a bang.

All in all, the gifted (writer-director Christopher) Nolan's latest epic is typically well-constructed (despite a plot hole here and there) and beautiful to look at.

Enjoying TDKR requires messiah-like trust in Nolan that he'll eventually reward us, as long as we don't get too hung up on all the plot holes and leftover genre tropes.

A bit of a letdown, containing nothing close to the brilliance of the late Heath Ledger's performance in the previous film, but it doesn't glorify nihilism, chaos and anarchy like the previous film did because it's villains aren't charismatic.

The summer's most grandiose, grown-up, operatic superhero movie, one that makes others look, in comparison, like kids playing around in action-figure pajamas.

A fantastic conclusion even if a bit bloated.

Demonstra que um longa baseado em super-heróis pode ser adulto, investir no realismo e representar um passatempo escapista sem, com isso, desrespeitar a inteligência de seu público.

Nolan's final Batman film delivers grand excitement, grounded performances and the kind of conservative themes rarely embraced in blockbuster films.
