The 10 Most Memorable Quotes From The Dark Knight Trilogy

“Gotham, take control… take control of your city. Behold, the instrument of your liberation! Identify yourself to the world!” – Bane in The Dark Knight Rises

The anarchy that Bane inspired and the terror that he brought to Gotham City was truly frightening. Most of all though, Tom Hardy’s portrayal of the masked villain was absolutely brilliant. Most of his dialogue, that of which could be understood at least, was quote-worthy, but it was this line in particular that sent an extra chill down my spine.

The quote outlines everything Bane is working for. He is liberating Gotham from corruption by becoming the city’s reckoning.

The power with which this line was delivered and the way that those listening to him trembled at his words, was terrifying and at the same time, in a very odd way, inspiring.

Being able to evoke those emotions together is truly the product of first-rate writing.
