The Dark Knight Rises by Christopher Nolan (2012)

The last episode in Nolan’s trilogy where Christian Bale is the perfectly bodied Batman with very little emotions.

Michael Caine is the loving and loyal butler who wants the last of the Waynes to lead a normal life. The last of the Waynes does not seem to agree with Alfred but will finally surrender to a more traditional lifestyle. Before that happens however, he needs to destroy Bane – one masked barbarian who plots to destroy Gotham.

What sets off as an impressive show off shot on the IMAX camera, smoothly transforms into the high life world of parties, charity balls and cocktails. Things get spiced up for Bruce Wayne, when Catwoman robs his safe. She is the only thing that gets him ticking – because they are both alike?

Nolan went wild with the last of his Batman series therefore it is hard to miss on anything. There is a love story, revenge, treason, nuclear bomb, loyalty, friendship, orphaned boys and along comes Robin.

My favourite action scene? The one with two planes in the air.

My least favourite element? The fact that Bane is barely understandable in terms of what he has to say through the metal mask – that looks a little bit like a sieve. How does he eat?

There are quite a few impressive scenes shot from the air – breathtaking.

Thank you Mr Nolan for this experience. As of today – Christian Bale is my favourite Batman.
