I know this film gets a lot of questioning, even now, about Bane's voice, but if you put that aside, the film is incredible. I, for one, have no issue at all with Bane's distorted voice. If anything, I think it makes his character even more terrifying. 'The Dark Knight Rises' is the epic concluding chapter to the greatest trilogy of all time and it still leaves room for something more to follow. It takes place 8 years after the second instalment and leaves us with a tired Bruce Wayne, and a city still living in the past. [Enter Bane]. If this film isn't described as a political warning then I don't know what it is. The whole franchise serves as Nolan's response to the attacks on 9/11, but this out of all of them is the scariest from a political point of view. The film is incredibly put together with the pacing absolutely perfect, and it does a fantastic job of making sure the film's message is conveyed. Throughout the film, there is so much foreshadowing it's unbelievable, but it's also so subtle. On top of that, this film provides the iconic line, "this isn't a car", and that just completed my life at 12 years old. I absolutely adore this film and admire this trilogy, and is the entire reason I fell in love with cinema. This was the perfect way to conclude the trilogy and I'm so glad I got to see this epic picture in the cinema on opening night.
