Not an awful Movie, but is (to me) the least enjoyable of the trilogy.
Verified purchase

*Spoilers ahead* fair warning.

I have now, after vowing for Years not to watch this, watched this Film.

My favourite is still 'The Dark Knight' and having watched all three, 'Rises' is my least.

I don't think the casting was bad in any of the three Films.

But I have always found the fake 'Hard Man' voice put on by Bale, annoying and the worst part of him as Batman...

Beyond that.

The fact that the first and last Movies basic have the same plot...and then the betrayal at the end....not to mention what Bane threatened Gotham with, regardless of it being flown out to Sea, would've still caused lasting/permanent damage to Gotham...and also killed millions of people too...thus the conclusion of this trilogy is...complete rubbish.

Oh...and as much as I think Tom Hardy is a good Actor, who had been good in a decent few Movies before and then went on to be good in a few Movies after this one...I think this Movie is one of the worst he's been in, the weird and gritting Accent (which is worse than Batmans' to me) & basically being a pawn of the secret Daughter of Villain from first Movie...makes him a boring, rather one dimensional Character.

Also...yeah...they didn't plan ahead, no mention of Child in first Film...and it's a stretch to make it all fit.

All lot on the technical side of the Movie is impressive, stunt, set-pieces, CGI. and so on...

But even that, always, a great Cast.

It doesn't make up for an end to a trilogy that all-in-all, comes out weak...

'The Dark Knight' ignoring the Memes and nonsense, is for me the best and almost feels unconnected to the first and last...I wish I hadn't bought 'Batman Begins' took a Villain who most people don't really know, unless you're really, really into Batman...and made him Villain (kinda) in two Movies...this is sad...great if ya like the Villain but boring for those that aren't those with loads of Batman Comics or Graphic Novels.

Honestly...I wish I could undo make the trilogy...having there only be 'The Dark Knight', give Batman a normal voice...and then it would be perfect...because the other Movies, though only lightly connected and the stupid fake Batman voice are Years to come...ruin the legacy of the best of the three and one of the better performances given by Heath Ledger...

It's sad really and a poor ending.

I know people love it...but I would never recommend...I give it two stars...some, honestly, not bad performances but that doesn't make up for the stupid and already in this trilogy, used plot...and the stuff with the secret Daughter of
Raʼs al Ghul, betrayal of Bruce Wayne...urgh, plot, rubbish...all to get revenge for her Dad...nothing could make up for that rubbish.

Also, regardless of whatever, they should have stuck with Chicago as the setting, and yeah...there's a decent amount of better stories to tell,Christopher Nolan already took a tonne of famous Tales from the past of Batman...couldn't he find something new...or just better than this re-harsh of the first of the trilogy.

It sucks...and is not worth the rent.

Sad really...but have to be honest.

Hope it helps.

Cowl - Good idea badly executed. Film - Entertaining but flawed
Verified purchase
Film 4/5 - I love the film but it is deeply flawed, I can see why people dislike it, essential if you loved the first 2 in this trilogy though
Cowl 1/5 - sigh, what a shame, its a cool idea but the cowl is cheap plastic and frankly looks bad on the shelf and the lack of something useful to put the film in is criminal, the plastic case they come in is constantly getting lost on the shelf, but this review has reminded me to sort a new standard blu ray case for it, so there's that I suppose

The Cat steals the show, but a top conclusion to a great series
Verified purchase
Fantastic conclusion to a great trilogy; action packed and full of interesting twists. It's good to see Nolan "got" Catwoman, Anne Hathaway is fantastic in the role and it's by and large a very good portrayal of her, typifying all her characteristics as Batman's Anti-Hero opposite number; for me the star of the show. Christian Bale is as gruff and determined as ever in the titular role (if you've seen the first two you'll know what to expect) and Michael Cane brings all the soul given he receives a large number of the most emotion-fueled lines, performing as admirably as you would expect a wisened actor to. Tom Hardy isn't at his best, but a few moments (flashing crazy eyes as he delivers one particular speech for example) manage to transcend the limitations handed him by having half his face obscured: not a major downfall at all but unfortunate for such a talented actor. If you haven't seen it already, make sure you do! A top way the end of the best series of comic-book films yet commited to film - for me the best of the series.

I cannot believe that this movie took so much at the box office. It is surely one of the most boring and inconsistent films ever. There is absolutely no drama even though throughout the film, the music tries so hard to create suspense and expectation. Most of the actors speak so softly and with a drawl that you struggle to hear and then, on top of that add the music and it is guess work as to what is being said. I could go on and on but I think whoever reads this review will get my point. One of the worst films I have ever seen.

Weak finale with a terrible sound mix.
Verified purchase
Overly long with "action" sequences extended for no good reason, but plot histories covered in one sentence.
The explanation of why we jumped 8 years and batman retired was never really explained.
But it's a fantasy film and that could be acceptable, what is not acceptable is the sound mix.
Voices are very low, explosions huge, but even louder is the music.
I have a considerable home theatre set up and at times this was almost unwatchable.
Michael caine was brilliant, as he always is.

Just rewatched the last 3 batman movies in order to get in the mood for the latest one! I forgot how good the whole trilogy is! Great casting, great storylines, action packed with sadness and humour too. Love everything about these movies I just always wish they went on for longer and we saw more of each character!

I think you have to be a teenage boy to really understand this!
Verified purchase
Watched this with my 15-year old - he has watched all the Batman films and knows all the back-stories, so it all made perfect sense to him. It was a bit impenetrable to me, but then I'm a 49-year-old Mum who has never paid all that much attention to this kind of thing barring sitting in front of the occasional film. Anyway, it was perfectly enjoyable but let's just say I didn't really 'get' it in the way my son did!

Confusing, muddled, disappointing sequel to the amazing Dark Knight
Verified purchase
Having seen The Dark Knight, (fantastic!), we were so looking forward to this sequel to it. But it was disappointing. There are plot points that go nowhere and seem to have no resolution or explanation, worse, it lacks a clear Batman enemy who has a reason for his actions. Bane is just baffling - what does he want? Why does he take the actions he does? The answer is so weak it undermines the film.
