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…
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…
An epic, if somewhat flawed conclusion to the solid 'Dark Knight' Trilogy, 'The Dark Knight Rises' is rousing and victorious as one of the best threquels out there.
A great ending to a fantastic franchise. Doesn't quite hit the heights of its predecessor, mainly due to Heath Ledger's epic Joker performance. Bale and Hardy are excellent, if not a little hard to understand at times haha.
The biggest and baddest of them all. It's like the epicness of Zack Snyder made love with the brain of Chris Nolan...pure awesome.
Epic score, epic vision of gotham, epic IMAX imagery, epic casting, and epic, epic story.
Mano-a-mano. Bane vs. Batman. Cum in my pants.
Catwoman, leather, motorcycles. Cum in my pants.
Tom Hardy, gas masks, bronzing muscle oil. Cum in my pants.
I really enjoyed my first viewing of this, but after a few repeat watches it hasn't proved to have the sort of staying power The Dark Knight has. It's too long, and lbr, Bane is a crap villain compared to the Joker. Still, it's enjoyable and well-paced and I still really love Catwoman. Also the Scarecrow cameo and the fact that Owen from Torchwood is in it.
You're a big guy.
Spawned cancer in my ass, and a shitty meme. 10/10
I don't see any reason to complain about this one. Not as good as TDK of course but still a great movie and a perfect ending to this amazing trilogy. There were some stupid parts but I still loved it. The first fight scene between Bane and Batman are one of the best fight scenes ever in my opinion. Thank you Christopher Nolan for changing the game.
