The Dark Knight Rises reunites Inception stars Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Caine.
I loved it as much as or more than the last time. It is a bold finale, brave enough to honor the mythology as well as change it. It dares to end with inspiration and hope. Ahhhhh…what a time to be a Batman fan!
Years later, with all that has happened (the death of her father, her new life, his new reputation), this remains the same. Bane will be the monster she needs if she asks it, kill without question or regret because she asks it. The girl, never quite a child, born in hell stands beside him a woman, beautiful and terrible, ancient eyes scanning over Gotham.

Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.
