Rises has an amazing story that is set 8 years after the last events, everything is on a bigger and bolder scale now, the action is amazing, the character development is fantastic and there are lots of new additions to the trilogy all having major parts to play in the story, Tom Hardy is an amazing villain with Bane being an epic screen presence with his size and strength, Anne Hathaway was amazing as cat woman (although not referred to as) very slick and sexy in her role, plus great roles from Joseph Gorden-Levitt and the usual faces Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman. This is a very dark and very serious movie with allot of emotion and depth and must not be missed!! The ending as shocking in some ways but still great and leaves the story open for many possibilities, the movie score by Hans Zimmer is also an amazing addition to the movie making every scene even more epic!!
