I have to start with the fact that I was quite blown away by the Dark Knight. I was involved throughout the duration, loved the music, wowed by the visuals and loved the re-fitting of the gothic Gotham from the first film into the realistic Chicago-esque city of the 2nd. But what I loved most about the Dark Knight was it's pacing.
This is where Rises falls down. It's so very clunky, with scene after scene of actoring and weighty…
I can not get enough of this film. At times emotionally moving, other times exhilarating, it's a celebration of the crazy ambition of the men and women that ride street races such as the Isle of Mann TT. Originally shown in 3D I regret not having seen it at the movies, but in no way does it rely on the 3D to be spectacular.
