The Dark Knight Rises: A Movie Review

Standard

So, pretty late with this review. I saw the film the second night it was out, but haven’t really had time (or motivation) to sit and write the review for it.

The Dark Knight Rises is the last installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale)has retired after killing Harvey Dent, remaining hidden from the world in his mansion. But when a new villain known as Bane (Tom Hardy) comes to Gotham with the intentions of giving the people back their city from the police force, while at the same time threatening them with a nuclear weapon, Batman returns to take back his city with the help of some old and new friends.

I have very little complaints about this movie. I even liked Anne Hathaway in the role of Catwoman, which really surprised me, not to mention Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Blake. The one thing that was difficult was understanding Tom Hardy. The accent I could’ve dealt with, but add in the Darth Vader type sound effects when he speaks and a lot of his words became garbled. That and his voice reminded me a lot of Sean Connery’s that I couldn’t help giggling at some points. But overall, Tom Hardy made the perfect choice for Bane.

I think the biggest problem I had with it is I just feel like Batman is a complete douche. I don’t know if it’s just the was Christian Bale portrays him (I haven’t really seen any other Batman movies in forever so I don’t really remember) or if I just don’t like Batman. I do LOVE the villains though. Probably my favorite group of villains out of every comic book series I’ve seen.

Grade: A-
