About The Films
 
Batman Begins (2005)
Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight’s emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents’ murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.
 
The Dark Knight (2008)
The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective, but soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast as Rachel Dawes. Returning from Batman Begins are Oldman, Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
 
Dark Knight Rises (2012)
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
 
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane. Christian Bale stars, along with Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman.

 Meh...sorry, LOVE the first two movies, but not about to spend the money on a box set for all 3 of them...the third one was a HUGE let down for me.

Tevii 7/3/2013 1:28:35 AM

 I'm not really a fan of these Nolan movies...except Batman Begins. But I think those that are fans of them were only let down by the third one because their expectations were high. Not because it was an inferior movie. 

In all actuality I found it to be much more entertaining than the dark knight... Despite its numerous plotholes.the dark knight was a boring pos wrapped up in an amazing performance by ledger. But 18 minutes of amazing acting does not save a movie over 2 hours long.  Two face was ridiculous and pointless. Everything could've been accomplished with Harvey dent. And who cares about the "choice" batman had to make. That same bit was used in the Joel Schumacher batman..

I'm well aware I'm in the minority, but in terms of theses movies The Dark Knight is my LEAST favorite.

1) batman Begins (AWESOME)

2) The Dark Knight rises (entertaining despite plotholes

3) The Dark Knight (boring but great performance)

Nice looking set for the diehard fans.

 Yeah, I usually find Nolan's movies waayyy too long.

TDK was perfect until they catch the joker but after that it seems that the movie's starting over. I hardly can watch it until the end. I enjoyed the third one probably because a lot of people said that it sucked so I was excepting a very bad movie but too long also in my opinion.

 I loved BB and TDK, but TDKR was just horrible. I could never buy this set, sadly, because of how bad the third movie is.

hanso 7/3/2013 7:44:37 AM

 TDKR is now on HBo and Everytime I catch it I sit and watch.   I actually think it shouldve been longer and top out at 3 hrs.  TDKR > BB all day everyday.
