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…
Pretty nice in IMAX.
A little bloated, lots of plot holes. But at least it's ambitious.
such an artsy batman film lol
i still love the ending and how nolan ended the trilogy
A great ending to the a great trilogy.
Some of the quotes throughout the film franchise gave me the chills. The one where Batman reveals his identity to Gordon is top class writing, editing, screenwriting and directing!
There are some epic action scenes in this film and move lovers must go and see this movie!
Powerful ending to Nolan's Batman series. However, Bane's comedic voice and one-sidedness make The Dark Knight Rises unconvincing. (I'm sorry Tom Hardy)
IMDb Ratings: 8.6
Why: Finale of epic #ChristopherNolan Trilogy for #batman

Ummm it was okay
It was a good movie. Although, there were a few problems that didn't make it perfect.
I think the main problem was struggling to hear what any of the characters were saying. I had to strain to listen whenever Bane would mumble something incomprehensible or a normal-speaking character would mutter something incoherent.
Another problem - which wasn't really a problem - was the amount of references this movie made to the first one. There were a lot of references to Scarecrow and Ra's Al Ghul and the League of Darkness, which would have confused me had I not seen the first one. But I did, so it wasn't really a problem.
I was also kind of disappointed with Bane's character.…
Christopher Nolan conclude la trilogia del Cavaliere Oscuro (The Dark Knight) con una pellicola che si è andata un po' a perdere rispetto ai precedenti pellicole della saga.
Le motivazioni sono molte, ma essenzialmente mi sembra di aver visto una sceneggiatura scritta non molto bene, ovvero ci sono degli elementi molto interessanti, come la storia di Bane, anche se non ho capito come mai si abbiamo voluto ricollegarlo alla Setta delle Ombre di Ra's al Ghul. Non l'ho capito fino alla scena finale, in cui tutto quello che si è visto diviene un enorme pretesto per sostenere la storia e le connessioni disastrose che si sono andate a creare tra i personaggi.
La storia era veramente molto interessante, con dei…
The Dark Knight Rises is a... well it's a sequel to "The Dark Knight". With all the positive critique and praise TDK has received, it was hard to meet the expectations of fans and critics with this movie, the third part of the Knight-Trilogy.
The main villain, Bane, feels flat, caused by the lack of character shown onscreen. His goal - to prove to Gotham that no believed order can save the city from total chaos and the citizens going savage on each other when given hope not to die in the face of imminent death - seems like a cheap, but pumped up copy of the goals of TDK's villain, the Joker.
It is an entertaining movie nonetheless, there are plenty of suspenseful moments in the film, and the stunts and special effects are very enjoyable.
