A Fun Movie But...
NO SPOILERS...The Dark Knight Rises was fun but hokey at times and about an hour too long. With the glut of previews the movies was nearly three and a half hours long. You will enjoy this movie but this is not at the same level as the other two films in the trilogy.
Bane, who I disliked in the comics was nearly perfect on screen.In fact, Bane was on screen so much it should have been a Bane movie. Some aspects of his abilities did not match up with the realistic take the trilogy has tried to present, but nothing too jarring.
Some parts were explained away too easily and were either just silly, or worse stupid. Again, nothing that would make you walk out on the film, but serious batman fans might roll their eyes a bit.
But again, despite the flaws (the last 15 minutes were the worst part for me) this is an enjoyable action movie. It just isn't the best Batman movie.
