8 years have passed since Batman (Christian Bale) became an outcast at the conclusion of “the Dark Knight.” Gotham City appears to be experiencing a time of peace and security, largely due to the secret that Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) maintains about the death of D.A. Harvey Dent. When the infamous villain known as Bane (Tom Hardy) sets his sights on Gotham city to realize the legacy of Ra's al Ghul, the Batman is needed once more.
Part of the enjoyment of watching Nolan’s Batman films is that as a director he seems to have a clearly defined vision of what Batman is and where he wants to take the character. Nolan’s approach seems to ground the Batman in as much realism as one can with such subject material. However with the Dark Knight Rises, Nolan asks his audience for more suspension of belief than he has asked of them before.
