The Dark Knight Rises picks off from where the movie The Dark Knight left off 8 years after. Ever since the incident, Bruce Wayne has been in hiding at his mansion without ever needing to don the Batman character ever again and just wallows in his misery over the loss of Rachel Dawes.
A certain cat burglar named Selina Kyle went after Bruce's fingerprints and took a necklace too which invigorated Bruce to don his Batman character again to find out why did Catwoman took his fingerprints.
This has led Bruce to finding out Bane and that Bane shares the same mentor as him where he took over the League of Shadows after Ra's Al Ghul's death. Batman was back in action again after a partial plot by Bane had succeeded which was to bankrupt Bruce Wayne and am now on his way to acquire the machine that was setup and built by Wayne Enterprises to harness fusion energy and modify it to make it into a nuclear device.
Batman confronted Bane but was defeated with the famous scene of Bane breaking Batman's back and left him to rot in a prison that Bane came from because Bane wanted Batman/Bruce Wayne to see his failure to stop him through the television while he goes on in succeeding his plan to take over Gotham and activate a nuclear device which he plans to detonate way later on.
While the city of Gotham falls into the hands of Bane and all the police forces trapped underground, and Bane having his personal army of felons, Bruce starts his journey of recovery inside the prison where Bane use to be. That's where he hears the story of how only a child has once managed to escape the prison walls and that child was the child of Ra's Al Ghul, the only person to ever escape the prison.
Many months went by, Bane was still in charge and Bruce has already recovered from his back injury and attempts to leave the prison but fails. Find out how the rest of the story goes by watching the film!
This show was a little too dry for my taste. Loads of talking, kid-like fighting actions but it's nice to see how this story came to life from a comic book. Batman fans will of course be thrilled by seeing Batman being defeated by Bane coming to life on the big screen, a milestone when it was in the comic world but otherwise everything else seems to be a little too under par for my taste. Nevertheless, it's an ok watch. So I give it 3 stars out of 5.
