PG-13 | | Action, Thriller
Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone... inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.
In Batman Begins Lucius Fox says about the Batsuit: "This sucker will stop a knife." In "The Dark Knight Rises", Batman gets stabbed. However, in The Dark Knight, Fox gives Batman a new suit that makes him more agile but also "more vulnerable to knives and gunfire". If Batman kept his old suit, it's likely that the knife would've been less effective.
The title does not appear onscreen until after the last scene and before the end credits.
