Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, the Dark Knight, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham, the Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent's crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane's plans to destroy the city. Written by
The soldiers assisting in the pickup of Dr. Pavel are elite Delta Force operators, as evidenced by the distinctive USASOC patch and Airborne tab worn on their uniform.
However, they make numerous tactical mistakes when the plane comes under attack.
When Bane's henchmen begin shooting through the plane windows, the supposedly highly trained soldiers are bewildered, and make no move to engage them or take cover, allowing themselves to be gunned down. Meanwhile, two others ignore the attack and instead physically assault the restrained henchmen.
Additionally, when the plane is tilted to vertical, one of the soldiers who falls to the rear struggles for several seconds to unholster his weapon- something no soldier would do, let alone a highly trained Delta Force operator. See more »
I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone... inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.

as much as i am huge fan of the batman in almost every facet of the genre, i am having a hard time getting completely behind this film. it makes the same mistake a lot of sequels do: it tries to pack too much into the story. the reason why the first two films in the trilogy, batman begins and the dark knight, worked so well was because they mostly focused on one central story and villain. in the dark knight rises there are too many new characters and too many story lines to be introduced and told that the film loses focus. sure it has plenty of action which you would expect but nolan strays too far from the source material when it comes to the characters in the film. the cast does a fine job with the script they had to work with and most film goers will probably like this film but i think true fans of the batman who know the history of the characters will wonder what nolan is doing to their batman.
