Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

This Week’s “On The Go” Movie Reviews selection is “The Dark Knight Rises“, the epic conclusion to the astonishing Christopher Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy.




LOWDOWN:

Having assumed responsibility for the crimes of District Attorney Harvey Dent in order to protect his reputation, Batman is chased into exile by the Gotham City Police Department. Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the appearance of the mysterious Selina Kyle sets in motion a chain of events culminating in the arrival of Bane, a ruthless terrorist with plans to destroy Gotham City. With the future of the city at stake, Batman must emerge from his exile and confront Bane to bring about an end to his reign of terror.

REVIEW:

The TDKR is tightly woven with a thick and gritty story, full of action, suspense and surprises for our dearly loved Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight Rises most definitely leaves you wanting more but at least satisfied with a strong incredible and powerful ending. An entertaining and mesmerising masterpiece from Christopher Nolan with all members of the A-list cast giving solid performances throughout especially by Michael Caine and Joseph Gordon-Levitt who deliver very Powerful performances. I got to see a more human and emotional Bruce Wayne played by Christian Bale. TDKR shows bits from many of “Batman” comic storylines such as “No Man’s Land” and “Knightfall”. The best super hero movie I have ever seen in my lifetime by far. The emotional depth they put into every character was flawless, everyone had a back story you could relate to.  Its not every day a sequel surpasses the first movie and the final surpasses them all . The way they made every movie tie into each other was done masterfully. An epic conclusion to one of the best modern era trilogy’s.

OVERALL:
“The Dark Knight Rises” takes a seat at the adults table, while the Marvel franchises sit at the kiddy table. TDKR is dark, captivating, and entertaining to say the least. The action sequences are flawlessly executed, and the acting is in as high a gear as the Batmobile. Amazingly, awesomely, spectacularly, extraordinarily, stupendously mind-blowing splendid job from genius at work Christopher Nolan… everything in the movie is perfect as the Mona Lisa painting… trust me guys.. a must watch… Highly Recommended!!!
