The actor, who reprises his role as Gotham police commissioner Jim Gordon in the third instalment, talked about the film's "epic", high-octane tone.
"This is truly... epic," Oldman told Empire. "You know those Fast And Furious movies where they drive at one speed, then they hit that button?
"And they put the octane or the gas into the engine and they seem to drive at hyperspeed? This is Chris hitting the button... It is a truly epic conclusion to the whole thing, and I don't mean that in a gratuitous way."
Oldman went on to praise his co-stars Tom Hardy and Michael Caine, explaining that the former likes to spend a lot of time preparing and analysing his character.
"[Tom] Hardy will just want to talk it out and talk it out and talk it out and analyse it. Some people sit quietly on it," Oldman explained.
"I just noticed with Tom that he sort of has to bounce it around a bit. And of course Michael! There was one scene [on The Dark Knight Rises] where Michael Caine had to get very emotional and it's almost heart-breaking, it's almost too painful to watch.
"And he came in, take one: Got it. Take two: Got it. Take three: Nailed it. I mean, it was like watching a masterclass in acting. I said to Christian [Bale] at the time, 'That is how it's f**king done'. Just seeing it. No messing."
Caine has hinted that his character Alfred's storyline involves a major plot point.
A new TV spot and viral campaign have been released this week.
