The Dark Knight Rises ★★

This film has some of the laziest and most awkard exposition scenes I've seen outside of 80s porn. After the first half hour, I realised I could ease my pain by substituting the word "Macguffin" wherever appropriate. Try it, it's fun.

There's too much wrong with The Dark Knight Rises to even begin, so I'm going to spin this review to list the positives:

1) Catwoman was not just an out-and-out villain. There's complexity in her characterisation, if not too much depth. Some good wise-cracking and Anne Hathaway looks good in vinyl. No whip though. Shame.
2) ...I can't think of anything else that was positive.

I expect more from Nolan.
