Movie: The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

A Fire Will Rise

The Dark Knight Rises (2012), directed by Christopher Nolan is the third and final installment in Nolan's Batman movie trilogy. It is a sequel to Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008).

Synopsis: Batman / Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) took the blame for Harvey Dent's crimes in The Dark Knight, leaving him with a tarnished reputation and making him Gotham City's enemy. After spending eight years in hiatus, he resurfaces to save the city when a new terrorist leader, Bane (Tom Hardy) comes and brings destruction.

Everyone has watched this movie, am I right? I'm not a fan of Batman but after watching The Dark Knight in 2008 and remembering The Joker, I know I should watch this last movie of the trilogy.

The cast is a very strong one with many reprising their previous roles. Christian Bale as Batman / Bruce Wayne; Michael Caine as Alfred; Gary Oldman as Commissioner James Gordon; and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox. Old is gold. All of them are great!

Tom Hardy as Bane is a new addition but he's really good. Also, not forgetting Joseph Gordon-Levitt as young police officer John Blake, also another new character. Describing his role, Joseph Gordon-Levitt says, "John Blake is the kind of guy who probably always wanted to be a cop and dedicates himself to being excellent at his job. He is someone who believes in what he does and I admire that in anybody. In the midst of a lot of cynicism, he remains proud to be a police officer." A good surprising twist is given to John Blake's character at the end of the movie. ;)

The girls are great too with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate. Hot!

This movie is about redemption and here's a good explanation: Redemption is the central theme of Inception, Christopher Nolan's most successful non-Batman related film. Batman/Bruce Wayne has given up hope of redemption, just like Cobb from Inception. Both are sucked back into their underworlds by a fresh promise of redemption. For Cobb it's a fresh start where he is no longer a fugitive, set apart from his children, for Batman/Bruce Wayne it's the promise of dying in service to the people of Gotham. Both are repeatedly asked to 'take a leap of faith' in order to be released from their guilt and achieve happiness. [via]

On a lighter note, I saw the following strip about "'The Dark Knight Rises' an 'Inception' Reunion" on the Internet a while ago.


Now that's really funny. It's like watching Nolan's Inception all over again, minus Leonardo DiCaprio.

Remember the characters?

Tom Hardy = Eames (Inception) & Bane (The Dark Knight Rises)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt = Arthur (Inception) & Blake (The Dark Knight Rises)

Marion Cotillard = Mal (Inception) & Miranda (The Dark Knight Rises)

Michael Caine = Miles (Inception) & Alfred (The Dark Knight Rises)

Ken Wanatabe = Saito (Inception) & fake Ra's (Batman Begins)

Cillian Murphy = Robert (Inception) & Scarecrow (Batman Begins)

Well, since The Dark Knight Rises is touted as a dazzling Batman finale, you should watch it too.
