5 Most-Surprising Scenes from "The Dark Knight Rises"

Wednesday, 19 September 2012

The most anticipated movie of 2012, and Christopher Nolan's conclusion to his epic Batman trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises," hasn't disappointed critics or movie goers since its release this July. Arguably the end to the greatest movie trilogy of all time, "Rises" is two hours and forty-five minutes of raw emotion, stunning special effects, jaw-dropping plot twists, and powerful action you'd see from a Michael Bay film. The Dark Knight trilogy is dark, deep, and ultra-human. Wicked Local reports that Christian Bale's last go-around as the Caped Crusader was powerfully emotional, and while the movie was an accomplishment in itself, points out five particular scenes in the film that stood out as shockers. Before you read on, we should also mention that there are spoilers to follow, so proceed at your own risk.

Breaking the Bat

The "Rises" villain, Bane (Tom Hardy), is best known for breaking Batman's back in the comic books, putting him out of commission until he heals. Nolan stayed very true to the comic book in a stunning fight scene in Bane's underground lair where Bane physically dominates Batman. He caps off the heart-pumping fight sequence by raising him over his head and breaking his back over his knee - a clear hat-tip to Bane's story in the comic books.

Death or Exile

Commissioner Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) is ordered to be exiled from the city and as he steps out onto the ice to walk away and plummet to his would-be death, Batman makes his grand re-entrance after rehabilitating his back injury and escaping from an underground prison. After taking out Bane's minions, Batman hands Gordon a lit flare which trails to a Bat signal on the side of skyscraper, blazed in fire. It is Batman's sign that he has risen and is back to reclaim the city.

Miranda Tate Twist

"Rises" incorporated elements from the previous two Batman movies, including "Batman Begins" villain Ra's Al Ghul. This comes full circle as assumed Batman/Bruce Wayne ally Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) reveals herself as the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul, literally stabbing Batman in the back as he is about the finish off Bane near the end of the film.

Nuclear Explosion

After defeating Bane and Miranda Tate, it's up to Batman and Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) to put a stop to a nuclear bomb threatening to blow up the city and fulfill Ra's Al Ghul's mission of destroying Gotham. Seeing as how it can't be detonated, Batman hooks the bomb to the Batplane and flies it out over the ocean, attempting to get it far enough away from the city so that it doesn't do any damage to Gotham. He succeeds, but the bomb goes off, taking Batman and the Batplane with it. Or does it?

Rising with Robin

In the closing scenes of the film, Batman ally, and Gotham street cop, John Blake's (Joseph Gordon Levitt) real name is revealed as Robin. While this scene was met with mixed emotions from many filmgoers, Blake was a civilian version of Robin throughout the entire movie, assisting Batman not as a hero in a mask and cape, but as a police officer. It is further revealed that Bruce Wayne leaves Robin with the coordinates to the Bat Cave and the heir apparent to Batman is shown inside the Bat Cave, rising on a platform as the movie ends. One can only assume that the new Batman has been crowned.
