The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
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.
It's funny watching the elements come together in this complicated scam. On one hand, the set-up isn't quite as complex as it seems, but there's an easy sense of fun in every exchange.
The best films of this genre always show a path and provide a takeaway for being a better person.
Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
The film may be flawed, but its message is not.
Let's start with the positives. The cinematography is so glorious to look at and the Bat suit photographs so well here. Wally Pfister and IMAX cameras make a good marriage. The sheer scope in each frame is downright impressive and in some ways, this tops the Dark Knight in terms of scale and coverage. Bigger, grander, larger and louder.I can remember looking forward to this so much, back in the summer of 2011, we were treated to some leaked footage which showed Batman facing off against the masked antagonist Bane on the snowy streets of Gotham. I figured that Bane had invaded Gotham and that Batman had come out of hiding to face this new threat. The trailer arrived that Christmas, showing an out of breath Batman backing away from the hulking Bane.So, I had created my own mythology here. A nuts and bolts battle to the death which could have cost Batman his life. Instead, we barely got to see Batman - Bale only appears as Batman for a mere 30 minutes or so in a clunky 2h 44min film that overstays it's welcome.The first fight between Bane and Batman was hard to watch and I felt for poor Bruce Wayne getting his ass handed to him and literally broken. We needed more interactions with these two characters. Instead we got Wayne in the hole and Bane mumbling his way round Gotham.Hardy is a powerhouse but wtf was he saying? It was tedious after ten minutes. His speeches on the football field and outside the prison are ridiculous and nonsensical. How was his plan to release prisoners from jail to give Gotham citizens their city back ever going to work? I feel that this script was rushed, Nolan was clearly under pressure to deliver a sequel within a set window of time and the grandiose sequences were clearly put in to try and top the film that went before.6/10
Good ending of Batman's journey. Sure, dark knight is a milestone but it's unfair to compare this two movies. Love it.
Due to the cliffhanger of the second Christopher Nolan Batman film, I was hoping that there'd be more. And I was right. We get the final chapter of the Dark Knight trilogy and a new villain, being Bane, who was a brilliant tactician and antagonist for the Dark Knight. Plus some unexpected moments. Anne Hathaway was good too. The real show-stealers are Christian Bale and Michael Caine in this film. It's not the best third chapter of a trilogy (my favorite is Return of the King) but it comes close to being very good. You'll see!
So we can learn to pick ourselves upThat's exactly what the movie is portraying First I have to say that The Dark Knight is my all time favorite movie The Dark Knight Rises is not comparable to it's precedor but it's still a great movie Everyone is talking about plot holes in the movie which in my opinion aren't plot holes and can be explained Im not saying the movie is flawless but you must give it a shot
