The Dark Knight Rises: I don’t even think this movie even needs a review. I thought it was THAT good. It was a great end to the Batman trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan. The movie was not only a good comic book movie, but I believe it was a good movie overall.
Almost 3 hours long, the movie was suspenseful for it’s entirety. The usual bass filled score kept that feeling going throughout the film. I was fortunate to watch the movie in an Imax theater and was able to feel the full awe of some of the wide landscape and aerial shots.
The actors did a great job. Not only a cutie, but the role of Blake, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt was well written into the plot and kept the story line moving. This was a great casting choice.
Although it may get some getting used to, Anne Hathaway played a pretty good Cat Woman. She was feisty but still had that tiny bit of good to her that Batman always saw in her.
I was especially impressed with Tom Hardy and Bane’s dialogue. It was intelligent and villainous as it should be.
The inclusion of little comic book tidbits and background stories satisfied the nerdy part of me enough to really enjoy the movie. Of course there will be fan boys to disagree with me. But my opinion will not sway. It’s a great film.
Unfortunately, the movie will be forever stained with the shooting in Colorado. Of course my deepest condolences go out to the families and loved ones of the victims. It was a very horrible event, especially when it happened at an innocent event such as a movie screening of Batman. I was glad Christian Bale went out to visit the victims at the hospital. It was definitely something positive to do.
I hope this event does not deter people from going to see the movie, or going to the movies in general. I went that Friday night and everyone had to have their bags checked. It’s not a big deal for me to have my bag checked, although I honestly don’t think that does any good. Maybe it will give peace of mind to others. Either way, going to the movies is still one of my favorite things to do and hope you will enjoy as well. Now go watch the movie!
