The Dark Knight: Begins Falls Rises (2005-2012)

tumblr_static_begins_falls_rises         WE FALL SO THAT WE CAN LEARN TO PICK OURSELVES UP RISE.  It’s an epic story based on the fractions of life of a dark knight called “The Batman” which are begin, fall and rise. This trilogy is made between 2005 and 2012 written by David Goyer and Bob Kane and directed by Christopher Nolan the mastermind behind 2000’s ‘Momento’, a fabulous director who is very illustrious for this trilogy and Inception. It cemented his place as one of the greatest directors of our time. This trilogy had made total $2, 46, 32, 26, 216 on box office. The earlier Batman movies (especially Batman & Robin) made Batman into something he was not. They were typical superhero movies, funny, never taking themselves too seriously, and fairly enjoyable (except Batman & Robin, ironically). The villains were outlandish, and the stories non-existent. Batman himself had a nice sense of humor and could outwit the funniest of them. So there were obligations that the Batman should be more precise, bounded and determined, this purpose is fulfilled by Christopher Nolan.

          The question rise in your mind that what is it that makes this trilogy so great? What makes it not only a great superhero franchise, but a great trilogy in general? These are the questions I will try to give a justification in this post. But before that, we need to understand that there are several factors which make a great movie, and even more factors contribute to making a good trilogy. For a Great trilogy, however, all of these factors need to be of a high standard. This is the challenge before the makers of a movie. Throughout this article, I will consider (no one going to miss this after reading this post) that you have seen the trilogy. And if you haven’t, you should see it before you read any further. i gave you encouragement that it will give you an extreme pleasure of watching this trilogy.

         The Hero, throughout the trilogy, we always got the feeling that Batman was more than a man….he was a figure. And that was finally confirmed in the last movie. In this trilogy, Batman is bigger than Bruce Wayne. As Wayne himself states, Batman has no limitations. He can do what ordinary men can not, endure what no other person can. He can become whatever he needs to become for the greater good of Gotham. Even a villain, if necessary. In the end, even though Bruce Wayne gave up the mantle of Batman, he could pass it on. This shows us that Batman is not limited to one person. Some people consider that batman is all bout money but it is not like that i think that the money can’t buy  devotion, determination and sacrifices. In this field Nolan has broke all the barriers.

      The Villain, by this trilogy Nolan had given us three great villains, each of them is best in his portrayal which made every movie breathtaking and as dark as possible of this trilogy and which made the character of batman greatly pro founded as an ocean. In Batman Begins, it was Ra’s Al Ghul, the leader of The League of Shadows Who played an important role in turning Bruce Wayne into Batman. We can say that he is as ruthless as lucid.  The Joker has always been Batman’s greatest enemy Who took the dark knight series to new level. The Joker had no goals all he wanted to watch the world burn. He did not side the criminals nor with the police. He wasn’t after money or power. For the first time, a superhero movie was being discussed more for its villain than it’s hero. Batman had been turned into a supporting character, with the Joker hogging the limelight. There are many quotes like “Why so serious?”, “Let’s put a smile on that face!”, Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it. You know, I just… do things, How about a magic trick? I’m gonna make this pencil disappear. Ta-daa! It’s… it’s gone and which i like the most is  If you’re good at something, never do it for free. This type of quotes makes movie perfect and astonishing. Then in Dark Knight Rises comes Bane again a very different character. He played a role of villain for love, love for women once he saved by her. The Bane is insane in all the way if we consider try of nuclear bombing of Gotham or ruination and stealing of Batman’s engineering works. First time a villain is outmatched physically in this movie. “We both know I have to kill you now. You’ll just have to imagine the fire.”, “Oh yes, I was wondering what would break first, your spirit or your body?” and “You don’t fear death, you welcome it. Your punishment must be more severe.” are most popular quote from this movie.  In Nolan’s trilogy, the villains were exactly as important as the Hero himself, and this is what made the trilogy outstanding.

         The story, generally superhero movie does not have strong story line, they only have loads of action. But the Batman trilogy has spectacular story line. From this trilogy every movie has its own purpose or say goal. They leave audience with a message. Nolan is best for this type of certain realism in these movies. Each of these movie has is own philosophy. In Batman Begins there is start of legend The Dark Knight in which Bruce Wayne outcome the fear of bats and tried to feed himself in the image of the dark knight and Bruce is confronted by Ducard, who reveals him to be the real Ra’s al Ghul. As the League begins unleashing the toxin, Batman rescues Rachel from a drug-induced mob and indirectly reveals his true identity to her before pursuing Ra’s. Batman confronts Ra’s on the train and escapes just as Gordon uses the Tumbler to destroy the elevated tracks, leaving Ra’s to die in the ensuing crash. Batman becomes a public hero, but loses Rachel, who can not bring herself to love both Bruce and Batman. In The Dark Knight batman try to shutdown the organized crime in which joker brings the chaos.  The accomplices kill each other off one by one in a sequence masterminded by the Joker, who escapes alone with all the money are marvelous. Dent lures Gordon to the building where Rachel died and holds Gordon’s family hostage. Batman confronts Dent, who judges the fates of himself, Batman, and Gordon’s son with three coin flips. He shoots Batman, spares himself, then flips again to determine the boy’s fate. Batman, who is wearing body armor, tackles Dent off the building, killing him and saving the boy. Batman then convinces Gordon to frame him for the murders so that Dent will remain a symbol of hope for the city. Gordon destroys the Bat-Signal and launches a manhunt for the Batman. Alfred Pennyworth burns a letter written by Rachel to Bruce announcing her engagement to Dent, and Fox watches the signal tracker self-destruct which was build to trace the signal from the joker. Actually this is the fall of the dark knight because he can’t be work with Gotham police, he has to be dark and silent. Bruce Wayne had become a recluse. But in the dark knight rises the batman was forced to be armed by the cat burglar Selina Kyle who obtains Bruce’s fingerprints from his home. ter being promised the software to erase her criminal record, Selina agrees to take Batman to Bane, but instead leads him into a trap. Bane reveals that he intends to fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s mission to destroy Gotham with the League of Shadows remnant. He delivers a crippling blow to Batman’s back, then takes him to a foreign, well-like prison where escape is virtually impossible. The inmates tell Bruce the story of Ra’s al Ghul’s child, born in the prison and cared for by a fellow prisoner before escaping—the only prisoner to have ever done so. Bruce assumes the child to be Bane. After months of recovery and re-training, Bruce escapes from the prison and enlists Selina, Blake, Tate, Gordon, and Lucius Fox to help stop the bomb’s detonation. With no way to stop the detonation, Batman uses The Bat to haul the bomb over the bay, where it detonates. In the aftermath, Batman is presumed dead and is honored as a hero. With Bruce also presumed dead, Wayne Manor is left to the city to become an orphanage, and Wayne’s remaining estate is left to Alfred. Fox discovers that Bruce had fixed The Bat’s autopilot, and Gordon finds the Bat-Signal refurbished. While visiting Florence, Alfred witnesses Bruce and Selina together. Blake resigns from the police force and inherits the Bat cave. The car chases, the fight scenes, even the scenes where two characters are merely talking keep the audience involved. I swear that there is no single second in which you fill it is going to be boring.

          No movie can touch the sky of success without best cast. If actors are good then they will provide story and emotions both precisely. There are no words for Christian Bale who played a role of the dark knight. Bale played all three of the characters to absolute perfection, and molds them together well enough to make it clear to show they are still the same person. Bruce’s trusted butler and confidant. Alfred has acted as a father figure to Bruce, and continues to aid Bruce on his missions as well as supplying him with useful advice which was played by the Michael Caine. Christopher Nolan had dramatized emotional bond between Bruce and Alfred very specifically. Commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department, and one of the city’s few honest police officers whose role was made into perfection by Gary Oldman. How can we forget the villains, Liam Neeson had played  role of Ra’s al Ghul’. There are no words for Heath Ledger a legendary actor who had played a role as the joker which is very crucial. The joker will be considered as most remarkable character in the movies which is only possible because of Heath Ledger. Heath Ledger was deeply poured in his character of joker so the chaotic character of joker turned himself into chaos and he died because of overdose of sleeping drugs. Campaign for The Dark Knight, developing promotional websites and trailers highlighting screen shots of Ledger as the Joker, but after Ledger’s death, the studio refocused its promotional campaign. Ledger was posthumously awarded Best Supporting Actor. Tom Hardy also done well, although most of his face was covered by a mask as Bane. Morgan Freeman had acted as Lucius Fox who was demoted to working in the Wayne’s company’s Applied Science Division. Katie Holmes as Rachel Dawes who was Bruce’s childhood friend and love interest who serves as Gotham City’s assistant district attorney, fighting against the corruption in the city. A very ambitious role was played by Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent. Selection of casts in this trilogy by Nolan had increased the value and position exponentially.

          The Music, it should be mentioned because music is very important component of movie. Hans Zimmer, the music composer for the trilogy, has given us some very memorable works in the past and recently given music for Man of Steel.

          In the end  i want to conclude that the Dark Knight trilogy is mixture of every sense of art and action. The greatness of this movie can be justified by the discussion about movie among audience. The entire i have mentioned in the post plays an extensive role to make it simply greatest. Nolan had achieved the milestone as the trilogy is termed as one of the most innovative films of the decade. Nolan and Zack Snyder had announced Batman Vs. Superman (2015) in which Ben Affleck is assigned as Batman but we should not take this wrongly because Ben is very good actor who has played his role very firmly in Good Will Hunting (1997).

Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, 
but not the one it needs right now. 
So we’ll hunt him because he can take it. 
Because he’s not our hero. 
He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. 
A dark knight. – Jim Gordon
