there's a thing where you adds 'in my ass' to the end of a movie title, so here are some…
The Dark Knight Rises
The Legend Ends
Following the death of District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman assumes responsibility for Dent's crimes to protect the late attorney's reputation and is subsequently hunted by the Gotham City Police Department. Eight years later, Batman encounters the mysterious Selina Kyle and the villainous Bane, a new terrorist leader who overwhelms Gotham's finest. The Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
He did it. He actually did it.
I cannot believe I'm even typing this, but it's true...
Christopher Nolan successfully crammed 10 pounds of shit into a 5 pound bag.
Didn't even think it was possible!
Is every citizen of Gotham City a fucking idiot? Let me count the ways...
The first example goes all the way back to Batman Begins, when Bruce Wayne disappears for something like 8 years, then comes back one day without anybody asking where he was. They act like he just got back from taking a piss. And on the very same day that Bruce returns, Batman shows up. What a coincidence! To a person who doesn't have a broken brain, it's a lot more...but…
Before I start this review, I’d like to say the following: If you liked or even loved the film, that is fine. I frankly envy you. This is a film I wanted to love. But I didn’t, for reasons I will go into during this review.
Previous to this rewatch, I had last seen The Dark Knight Rises at the midnight premiere. The idea of a filmmaker finishing off a comic book trilogy and summing up their run of a character was great. But alas, I was disappointed with The Dark Knight Rises, because what we’re left with is a film that’s pretty dramatically unsatisfying. The reason I could enjoy Batman Begins was because aside from logic fails, that film…
After seven years and three films, Nolan’s Batman journey is over. The question is, is The Dark Knight Rises the send off the trilogy deserves? Sadly the answer to that question is a crushing no. Having re-watched both previous films this week I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this is the weakest film of the trilogy, and to make things worse, it isn’t even a good film, period.
In many ways the film’s problems existed throughout the series - needlessly long, inconsistent pacing and incoherent and bitty plotting - yet here they are magnified, partly because they are at their very worst and partly because it also lacks the compelling characters and exciting set pieces that…
I'm Gotham's reckoning.
Superhero films finally have a good trilogy. I'm not proclaiming this on the same level as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy or the original Star Wars Trilogy, but I'm saying this is by far the best superhero trilogy we've ever had. With that said, it's competition for that title wasn't exactly stiff. I'm also a huge Marvel Comics fanboy so it hurts a little admitting that.
The story is epic in scope and takes full advantage of it's staggering 164 min run time. It's not only a sequel, but it truly ties into both previous films and brings all three movies together as a true trilogy. If you're thinking about re-watching Batman Begins and The…
Magnificent conclusion to the Nolan trilogy.
If Batman was the star of Batman Begins and The Joker ruled The Dark Knight, then this film is the story of Bruce Wayne .
Awesome and audacious filmmaking at the highest level.
I demand being able to press a button when posting a review that says ‘Involuntary Rewatch’ I won’t go into details, but let’s just say it involved a ‘friend’, a ‘movie night’ and the sentence ‘As long as we watch something fun!’ (uttered by yours truly). No, I did not pick the film.
After seeing the Dark Knight Rises the first time in the cinema, I rated it one and a half stars and felt it to be a deeply flawed film. Well, not to my surprise, I still feel the same after this rewatch. I won’t rehash my old review as all I have to say on the film is said there and many others have already worded their…
Kaka hovno lort sitt. Sranje, szar merda. Paska merda shit shite cac! Mierda.
If you were to completely cut out Joseph Gordon Levitt and just have Anne Hathaway do more stuff and ditch half the Tale of Two Cities allegories, this movie may be way better. But instead it's a lackluster finale with Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway as the only saving graces. Also the melodramatic script is so obvious here it hurts, which is honestly gripe I have with anything Goyer or Nolan touch. But at least Bane is a good villain, and it's a lot better than Batman and Robin or Batman V. Superman but it's far from either of its predecessors.
This is a movie that has become cool to hate, but honestly I think this is the best movie in the trilogy. Christopher Nolan took everything he set up in the previous movies, and he took it to the next level. The action sequences are bigger, the stakes are the higher, and the emotions are more powerful.
This movie is Christopher Nolan's most ambitious effort yet. He crafts a sweeping story with many characters, and he manages to make each character deep and memorable. This movie takes a lot of risks like sidelining Batman for a lot of the story, but I think risks like that serve this story for the best. Is this movie perfect? Nope, but that's fine because the bigger you go, the more likely you are to make mistakes. Christopher Nolan tries to reach for something highly emotional and awe-inspiring with this movie, and I think he grasped it.
Hacer un rating de esta película es complicado. Claramente la peor de la Saga Nolan.
Pero me ha pasado exactamente igual que la anterior, me ha gustado mucho más al revisitarla, que la primera vez que la vi, la cual salí bastante enfadado del cine.
Añadir que en ese momento no conocia demasiado a Tom Hardy y ahora he podido apreciarlo más.
Si te gusta la saga de Nolan, está bien, en caso contrario, seguro que no será la que haga que te guste.
PD: Coñe, no recordaba tan pivón a la Hathaway de catwoman, y mira que me gusta poco de base.
This film had so much promise, but really fell apart in the third act.
ANNE FUCKING HATHAWAY
Oh no, it's not working!
*Punches Bane the same amount*
Oh, it worked!
Shoulda been a hit but was a miss tbh. MORE SELENA KYLE NEEDED.
movies that i think are underrated (and/or misunderstood) compared to the rest of each director's filmography. no order
