“The Dark Knight Rises”
Blu-ray Combo Pack ($35.99)
The super-charged conclusion to director Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” movie trilogy brings all the bat-pieces together one final time (at least under Nolan’s operatic reign) for an epic clash between good and evil on the streets of Gotham City between the shadowy caped crusader (Christian Bale) and a ruthless masked terrorist named Bane (Thomas Hardy). Anne Hathaway makes her debut as the cat burglar who becomes Cat Woman, Joseph Gordin-Levitt has an important part as a young police detective who’ll definitely be showing up in the next movie, and franchise standbys Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman return in pivotal supporting roles. Bonus features include an hour-long documentary on the iconic Batmobile, and an extensive, 17-part look at the making of this, the most involved of the “Dark Knight” movies.
