The Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.
This review reportedly contains 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…
not as good
I'm pretty sure I like this movie less and less the more I see it
(screened via Blu-Ray)
A great conclusion to a great triology. Awesome.
The villains lack the punch of the previous film's and their motivation seems rather clichéd, but this is still an action-packed rollercoaster ride.
Annak ellenére, hogy nem kifejezetten Batman-film, nagyon tetszik. Talán ez érint meg legjobban érzelmileg a trilógiából. Nagyon tetszik az a karakterfejlődés, amin Wayne végigmegy.
The Dark Knight was always going to be a hard one to follow, but Rises closes the trilogy well, bringing the overall story arc of Gotham's demise full circle with enough action and emotional weight to close the curtain on Nolans films well.
Bane makes for a brooding villain, but its Hathaway as the slinky Catwoman and Cain as Alfred who stand out in this.
Well it's time to revisit Nolan land by talking about the final Installment of his take on Batman trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises.
So this installment takes place roughly eight years after the events of The Dark Knight where Bruce Wayne has been hiding in the shadows and thous sacrificing everything that he stand for the streets of Gotham. But when the arrival of cunning cat burglar and a mass terrorist named Bane comes to put a fire among Gotham, this would lead Bruce to comeback as Batman in a way that might put him into a battle that'll challenge him more deeply than before.
Now this movie was split amongst many people with many different reactions. Some called…
I will break you.
"If I pull that off will you die?"
"It would be extremely painful."
"You're a big guy."
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
With so many reviews on the site now it is easy to miss the good ones so I thought a…
