A GREAT FINAL for the trilogy. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 15, 2020
The Dark Knight Rises delivers a satisfying and emotional conclusion to a trilogy which will go down in history as one of the best ever. This is Christopher Nolan's crowning achievement and a perfect Batman film.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

...RISES gives the finish Nolan's characters deserve, but to say it reaches the heights of [its predecessors] is predictably hard.
November 11, 2019
This conceit feels somewhat stale this time around, but a fearsome turn by Hardy keeps the action taut and the film exciting.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.4/5
October 31, 2019
A work that tries to honour and conclude the trilogy's politicking on its slippery themes of civic responsibility versus the value of self-preservation.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 22, 2019
The Dark Knight Rises caps off the trilogy with a high but bittersweet note.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
September 7, 2019
So rousingly, so emotionally, and so incalculably gratifying.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
June 8, 2019
A sprawling, messy, thrillingly imperfect film that delivers on its promise to shock and awe the audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 15, 2019
There's hope for Gotham and that makes me happy!
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 10, 2019
Isn't quite the game changer of the previous film. But it is still a dark and exhilarating epic, grounded in reality with a precise vision and craftsmanship that make it more than just another comic book movie.
February 25, 2019
The Dark Knight Rises not only celebrates a caped ▄bermensch but is itself, as a commercial enterprise, something beyond good and evil.
January 31, 2019
The ending is likely to have people talking, but there's no question that it's been set up properly.

January 29, 2019
The Dark Knight Rises is the pinnacle of epic movie-making and its scale and grandeur are unprecedented in cinema history. Nolan's biggest achievement -- and the real star of his third Batman film -- is Gotham city itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
January 18, 2019
Director Christopher Nolan has created a perfect trilogy.
December 28, 2018
Hardy, in a miraculous performance, manages to communicate the intelligence behind the muscle using just his voice.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 3, 2018
Nolan brings the Dark Knight trilogy to an ultimately satisfying and logical end.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
November 2, 2018
The Dark Knight Rises is resonant, emotional, and sometimes beautiful, but it's also overlong, overstuffed, and oftentimes frustrating.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 25, 2018
Bad, stupid, lame, embarrassing, and seemingly interminable, full of main characters delivering long-winded speeches explaining their histories from childhood so we'll be sure to understand their motivations, which are murky and trite...
August 30, 2018
Was there even a blockbuster that reminded us more of our imperfection?
March 5, 2018
Intense, deep and dark.
