VIDEO:

The Dark Knight Rises arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40 and 1.78 (Imax sequence). A few words about its predecessor The Dark Knight: Although its transfer earned top marks, however, contrast was raised to detail-quashing extremes, colour boosted, and severe edge halos littered the image. Thankfully, the transfer of the Dark Knight Rises did not suffer the same fate. Cinematographer Wally Pfister's wind-swept Gotham palette is rich, satisfying and gorgeous. Warm hues adorn the decadent homes of the city's elite, dusty desert colours blanket Bruce's stint in prison, and crisp white snow falls on a captive Gotham. Colours are positively radiant at times. Black levels are deep and inky. Detail is nothing short of extraordinary. Edges are sharp and natural and fine textures are well resolved and revealing (particularly during the film's IMAX sequences). (5/5)

AUDIO:

The real showpiece of The Dark Knight Rises is its sternum-splitting, rib-cracking, ground-pounding DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. While it obviously isn't as thunderous or jaw-dropping as its IMAX counterpart, it still boasts remarkable power, prowess and presence. The opening hijack scene is worth the cost of admission alone. Hans Zimmer's score is simply enveloping and invigorating. Dialogue is clear. It is a great soundtrack to enhance the video. (5/5)

MOVIE:

Christopher Nolan and his creative inner circle -- co-writer David S. Goyer, co-writer Jonathan Nolan, producing partner Emma Thomas, cinematographer Wally Pfister, composer Hans Zimmer, and many more -- finally concludes their Batman saga. A journey begun nearly a decade ago, Batman Begins marked a new, dare we say, serious era of the super hero film. Grounded and ultra-real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Knight Supreme. Aug. 7 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Dark Knight Rises is excellent movie making. Make no mistake while this is an outstanding superhero genre film…it “rises” (pun intended) to become so much more. Like its predecessor 2008’s “The Dark Knight”…this is an Oscar worthy masterpiece. While the Marvel/Disney juggernaut has the market cornered on Superhero films, in particular the linking of storylines into phases, DC, via the inimitable Chris Nolan has the humanistic, palpable meatier storytelling. Chris Nolan has made a handsome billionaire the subject of the viewer’s sympathy and compassion. He on the surface has it all, wealth, fame and prestige….but this film demonstrates the enormous physical toll such heroics bring. You might admire the Batman/Bruce Wayne, but with all the physical abuse he endures, you would not want to be him.

The film comes at an apt time, when the 1 percent argument is powerfully present. When one has a lot, one can occasionally have a lot to lose. Conversely, it is rather foolish to think that so few can have so much without any form of social outcry. Enter Bane, Batman’s nemesis, played with utter brilliance and demonic panache by Tom Hardy. He too is one to watch, if only for his physical transformations (see Bronson and Rock N Rolla). It is hard to believe this GQ looking fellow could become the physical monster that is Bane. His performance is made all the more formidable when one considers his face is nearly completely covered except for his eyes, through which he conveys everthing from contempt to humor and enraged fury. Though some have mocked his “Conneryesque” accent/speech affecation, I would offer that is merely adds to his mystique and larger than life character. Nothing about this character is low key.

"The Dark Knight Rises / L'Ascension du chevalier noir (Bilingual)"
I owned "The Dark Knight Rises" on blu-ray for 2 weeks now and I wished I owned it earlier because both the blu-ray and movie itself is awesome!.

Blu-ray Review:

"The Dark Knight Rises" is an amazing looking blu-ray, the picture quality is top notch especially since half of the movie was shot on IMax, some people might find it annoying to watch the movie and have the picture size change from 2.4:1 to 1.78:1, it will take some eye used to as half the movie was shot on IMax. The picture quality on IMax looks even better than the typical widescreen, this is probably because of the full screen changes; makes everything more brighter. The audio on the blu-ray is also top notch, everything from the dialogue to the explosions sound like they should. This is by far one of my favourite blu-ray, if your a Batman fan then there's no way you can miss out on this!.

Picture quality:
10/10

Audio quality:
10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best in the trilogy Oct. 30 2013
By RIP TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
So I finished watching it after watching it in two parts. At 2.5 hours long this movie felt like it dragged along at times, and to some extent was a suitable end to this trilogy. Though the characters are portrayed a little differently from the comic books, it still came together pretty well near the last third of the movie. It should prove interesting to see what may be done for a follow up movie with the way this one ended. But since Bale is done with Batman I am not sure how it will go, and with the director also being done with it I am not sure we will get to see a Batman this really well done.

One thing that bothered me about the movie was the voice of the Bane character. I did not have a great deal of trouble understanding him on the blu-ray as a lot of people complained about. It is just his high pitched voice was so damn annoying and not suited to the character at all that kind of ruined things for me with the movie. Still a good movie though. If I could my rating would be 3.5 stars out of 5 and not 4.
