NO intro about Bane but still he is stronger than the Batman with gadgets and professional training and the first ever villain more powerful than Batman (at least physically).

I have watched Dark knight and Inception umpteen number of times without blinking every time but I doubt it for TDKR.
But when compared to the normal Hollywood movies getting released now a days, TDKR - is awesome .

Agree with you here. I felt that the TDKR didn't live up to the expectations. Or rather, my expectation. Or, maybe, my expectation was unrealistic after watching TDK. Tom Hardy does justice to his role. But after watching Ledger, I doubt if anyone can pull of any better than Ledger, including Ledger himself.

It is definitely on the slower side as compared to the previous one. This movie focuses more on the character build up, unlike the previous one.

The Dark knight rises was actually a real treat for Nolan's fans!
But there was something missing in it. The Climax was really good, Thanks to Hans Zimmer, the sound effects and the soundtracks were awesome!. But i think the Dark knight and the Inception were better.
Heath Ledger stole the show as the Joker and in Inception, the story, the BGM , DiCaprio's acting were absolutely brilliant! Inception got everyone guessing whether it was dream or reality at the end! But the Dark Knight rises got us asking for more.
As a big fan of Batman, i would say that the Dark Knight is the best Superhero movie series ever!

Your answer to who is Bane lies in the link below. Enjoy

The Dark Knight Rises: the history of Bane | Den of Geek

Looking at Bane's history, it would have taken a couple of movies to show how he became masked Bane. Also he did appear in Knighfall and Batman and Robin.

Speaking of inception, was it dream or reality in the end? I thought it was a dream.

Sorry to intervene in the review section. But I do have a honest request to all the members not to post a very important scene of the movie. You just spoilt the whole movie going experience of a person who hasn't seen it yet.

FYI, I have already seen the movie and thought it was awesome, but came to a conclusion that even Nolan could not top of what he himself did with Dark Knight.

Other queries about Bane are being answered by above linky by chevelle. Bane's defination in itself is the most powerful foe Batman has ever encountered (Physicality sense).
+ He is the only one who has caused physical damage to Batman (see wiki.)


TDK : Is a movie every Batman/Superhero Fan will cherish till the times movies are made. However after looking at the oscar nominations for that year I was depressed to see TDK getting a win only for Best Supporting role actor. No editing??; No Action.??.Come on Academy ; let someone deserving WIN once! (Slumdog won the most awards that year)

Note From Support Team - Guys, do not post any details about the The Dark Knight Rises its really not fair for those who have not seen the movie. I have Deleted/Edited posts which had even a hint of a spoiler. Thanks.

A little something for those who haven't watched the movie. The perfect way to describe this fantastic Trilogy.

No 'Memento' in a list of Nolan's films? . And I would rate 'The Prestige' above his other movies except 'Memento'. I think 'Inception' is a bit overrated. Sure, it was great, but I don't think it was better than any of his Batman movies.

I found TDKR amazing.
We have to understand that this was conclusion of the series, atleast from Bale and Nolan's side, so they had to build everything up and drive it to a heightened end, at the same time leaving scope for the producer if he may attempt to continue it in the future.
Comparing it to TDK will be unjust because they are basically entirely different.
Bane has been the strongest villain Batman has ever faced, physically; while Joker is just demented.
Overall I'd rate this above TDK solely because this was actually Batman's story. Ledger just zapped everyone in TDK but here, it actually was Batman at the centre.

That's what i also said. People are comparing two different movies that carries forward the story to an epic conclusion.

Its not like DKR is a remake of TDK. It just doesn't make sense to compare those two.

But OTOH, if they compare Amazing Spiderman to Spiderman 1 of Tobey's series than it is perfectly sensible since both are reboots with same theme.

DKR just carries forward a legacy. And it matches the previous two and at times exceeds.

I watched Horrible Bosses recently and found it quite funny. It may not go down to well with some but I think it's pretty good. The cast is a big one too, with Jennifer Aniston, Collin Farrell, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx..

It's got a 7/10 in IMDB.

This post is about The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR) and it does not contain spoilers.

Finally I find people in agreement with me. All over the internet this is the opinion – TDKR is not as good as TDK. I just cannot fathom on what parameters are people judging it. I think it is just stupid to compare movies – watching movies is a subjective thing. Different people have different likings – I even know someone who thinks TDKR is an average movie.
I saw a lot of blogs/articles mentioning a list of bloopers in the movie, criticizing Nolan for making an average movie and not to the likes of TDK. Please tell me the areas where this movie does not have that x-factor which TDK had. I think people were expecting too much out of this movie and when they did not get what they wanted they opined that the movie was not as good as TDK.

Those who have not seen it – Please do not read more on internet; just go to a theatre and watch it. Watch it fast so that we can discuss the movie in detail. I wanted to write more about the story but then it would spoil the fun for those who have not seen it.
