This movie didn't get a 5 from me; I can't put my finger on exactly why, but after re-watching all of the Nolan trilogy,this was the only one which didn't continue to excite me after the 1st watch. It does touch upon an important topic, picking up from Batman Begins. The League of Shadows allows for these movies to talk about social decay and what could happen if the majority are neglected whilst those on top indulge in corruption and greed. Even though this movie didn't seem to side with the masses like the 1st movie did, it provided great insight into what it would be like if anarchy and rebellion really took shape. Lets hope when this happens in real life, we'll have a Batman for our time.
I do like this movie, because it's a typical Batman movie. It contains a lot of action with a good alternation. In view of the previous Batman movies, this one is much better through the new techniques used by making the film. The effects are beautiful and also a true addition in the story. Bane scares me since i have seen the movie more and more. ;-)
Batman begins and the dark knight were 2 of the most entertaining and greatest comic book movies ever made. Dark knight rises was expected to surpass its prequels and leave the franchise on a respectable end. Nonetheless, christopher nolan delivered once again with what could quite possibly be the only comic book movie ever to win an oscar whether it be for the acting, story, directing or effects.
8 years after the events of the dark knight, Batman resurfaces once again to protect the city that has tarnished him an outlaw but this time even he may be no match for mercenary Bane.
There is a couple things I'd like to take the liberty to clean up. First of all, for those critics out there who critique every last inch of a movie, you make me sick. Especially the ones who completely disregard the good parts of a movie, and just point out the flaws.
It truely does make you sound ignorant. My best friend just so happens to be one of those people. I can't even watch a movie with him, due to the sickening fact that I can't stand his closemindedness toward movies. Ok. So what if you didn't enjoy THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. That's your opinion, which you are entitled to I guess. However, regardless whether you liked it or not, you can't possibly tell me it didn't have amazing action sequences, or the special effects weren't astonishing. Anyway I'm just going on, I know. The movie was amazing, Bane was sick (even though he originally was hooked up to a mask with tubes which contained venom), and I always took a particular liking to Gary Oldman's portrail of Jim Gordon. In a nutshell, if you didn't like the movie, you obviously aren't a fan of Batman.
The new Batman is probably my favorite so far. The Dark Knight series finally took the Batman franchise to where it needs to be. No more cheesy character, villains, or bad Batman costumes. The Dark Knight Rises is one of the best films of the summer, which unfortunately is not saying much considering its competition.
After seeing it, I wrote this article about it. Don't worry, there are no spoilers in it but it does give my side of the film. Good stuff!
The first two new batman movies were great, the 2nd being phenomenal, with the exception of a lack of Joker. This movie should be called either Bruce Wayne Rises or bane rises. there is not enough batman to warrant its title. bane kicked ass, but it didnt feel as wholesome as the first two. As an action movie, it was great. As a batman movie it was ok
