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.
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…
Encumbered by near-impossible expectations & unprecedented hype that rarely any other movie has been subjected to in the 21st century at least, The Dark Knight Rises arrived in 2012 as the final conclusion of The Dark Knight legend and didn't just face the burden of living up to the towering success of its predecessors but being the final chapter of the trilogy, also had to conclude the beloved saga on an immensely satisfying note.
When it comes to motion picture trilogies, there aren't many good examples of a second sequel done right. The Godfather Part III, Return of the Jedi, X-Men: The Last Stand & Spider-Man 3 are some well-known final entries which gloriously failed to live up to the legacy of…
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.
This review has A couple paragraphs are comments I made on youtube that I thought I should include in this.
Hard to believe its more than two years old, every time Listen to this music or watch this trailer, I reminiscent on the Journey Nolan took us on, I remember a 11 year old me going to see Batman first time on the big screen and I waited Patiently for the next and then the conclusion, Thank you Nolan sir and Bale sir...
The Epic conclusion is here for the final journey.
''You either die a Hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the Villain'' or you rise from the depths of punishment for crimes you did not…
Silly but thrilling and whoa, sexiest cat woman. But how many times can Manhattan / Gotham get trashed/almost trashed: I don't care if it does or doesn't.
A brilliant ending to the epic trilogy.
In addition to my previous review on this film, It is still a very solid movie. I do did see some editing mistakes and continuity errors here and there.
Actually, the last two movies have a simple structure: it takes a theme (fear and what you stand for) and zooms in on it. It polarizes two different views and then the results are two 3 hour action movies.
It doesn't matter who we are, what matters is our plan.
TDKR was not as good this time around as it was in theaters. I realized Batman only made two appearances in the film. A film which lasts well over two hours. Characters that were imposing turn disappointing, and the set-up at the end was definitely not as strong as it could have been.
Still great, though slightly less so when watched with a headache.
Tan facha como las anteriores y mucho más confusa, pero creo que es la que más me ha divertido.
