The Dark Knight Rises Movie Highlights
The most anticipated movie of the 2012 year is finally here: Christian Nolan’s epic conclusion to the Dark Night trilogy – The Dark Knight Rises. *This article contains spoilers, so if you plan on watching the movie you may not want to continue reading* For those of you who can’t find a baby-sitter so that you can watch this two hour and forty-four minute movie, or may have been spooked about watching due to the Colorado tragedy that happened at the midnight showing, or you just want to know some surprises that happens – here’s some spoilers. *A lot of these spoilers are those that are well known by comic followers but are nice surprises for those who aren’t*
Bane (Tim Hardy) is a great villain – terrifying to say the least. But throughout the movie it is hard to understand what he is saying, so expect to say ‘huh?’ a lot. Bane breaks Batman’s back and imprisons him for some time. Bane is assumed to be killed by a gun shot by Catwoman, but it is not confirmed if he dies or not.
Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) is revealed to be Talia al Ghul, who is the true mastermind behind Gotham’s destruction.
Batman takes a bomb away from Gotham city in ‘The Bat’ and dies in the explosion. However, Alfred later sees Bruce in Florence, Italy with Selina Kyle (Anna Hathaway). Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) learns that Bruce was able to fix the auto-pilot patch before the explosion. Batman dies but Bruce Wayne lives – a more than fair ending.
John Blake (Joseph Gordon Levitt) is revealed to be Robin at the end of the movie. He says that his name is “Robin John Blake” and the ending shot of the movie shows Blake in the Bat-cave. He never suits up, but his Batman signal is revealed.
Alfred (Michael Caine) quits, hoping that it will convince Bruce to stop being Batman. At the end of the movie Alfred gets that wish.
So those are a few highlights from the movie. Hopefully you’ll be able to see the movie and experience the action for yourself.
