Directed by Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight Rises is a super hero movie written by Christopher Nolan himself with his brother Jonathan Nolan and the story is done by David.S.Goyer. It is a well edited movie.

The opening scene of the Movie is a stunt scene in the CIA flight. The scene shows the huge flight and it is shot above some mountains and for the stunt scene that happens inside the flight they clearly used the studio to shoot. They have brilliantly put together both the scenes, that it is really hard to understand the difference.

The stunt scene after the stock exchange robbery is the introduction scene for batman. All the street lights goes off to enhance the feel of Batman’s entry. Cameras are positioned in different and interesting angles through which the viewers are provided the entire view on what’s happening on the scene.

Batman has a plane, ‘bat’ in this movie. It is not animated but the vehicle doesn’t fly on its own. Trucks were used to make it move which were erased later from the scene.

The scene in which the bomb explodes is another brilliant shot in this movie. They animated the bomb exploding in all over the Gotham city. The scene in the Football ground where it explodes and the whole ground is destroyed, you can see the inside of it. They have achieved something hard and showcased a great editing skills.

The prison that is shown in the movie is said to be a location in Rajasthan. It is yet another remarkable scene in this movie. With the help of editing they have showed how hard it to escape from a place like that is. It showed the viewer’s how depressing the place is.
