It is the perfect end to an amazing trilogy. Your emotions will go on a serious roller coaster. Not only is the entire movie a perfect way to end the series. But the ending to the movie was just a stroke of great story telling. Now I gotta see it in IMAX!

That has to be one of the best endings to a movie I have ever seen. It was easily worth the money spent and I can almost promise that I will see this again in theatres before it comes out on DVD. MUST SEE!

The Dark Knight Rises .... Then Falls

THE GOOD... Batman himself, again I enjoyed the parts of seeing him, Alfred as always, and the appearance of Catwoman, she was an added bonus to this movie, and the action sceenes. THE BAD ... Pretty much everything else, the story was terrible, the bad guy "Bane" came nowhere even close to matching a character like The Joker, I know thats a hard act to follow, but this wasnt even close by any means. The BatPlane ... or whatever you want to call it, when it first appeared all I thought of was "Really, are you kidding ?" where and how that goofy thing made it into this movie is beyond me. This was a movie I wanted to like alot, but came out so disappointed with it, especially for a movie that was going to wrap up Nolans version of Batman ... it just went wrong, from the plot of the story, to a villain that did nothing for me, to new gadgets that are to far fetched and just rediculous. The movie felt long, dragged on, and not enough of Batman, I'd give it 2 1/2 out of 4 stars.

A solid ending.

"The Dark Knight Rises" was an excellent ending to the series that (without spoilers) I felt effectively ended this particular series while leaving room for expansion in this Batman universe. Anne Hathaway did an excellent job of bringing the Catwoman character to life in a way that didn't feel forced, and the returning characters did not disappoint. Beyond the actors, the fight scenes were excellently done, the special effects budget had to have been astounding, and the new toys were all most appreciated. The movie only falls short of "Must GO" because of a couple things. The Bane in the movie was a believably foil for the Dark Knight, but his story was a very sharp departure from the original comic book character. Additionally, while I wasn't looking for a 100% bulletproof plot (this is a superhero movie after all), a few gaping things stuck out. I just can't picture Batman sitting in a police car and chatting about his secret identity when everything is being recorded.

A perfect yet bittersweet send off to this Batman trilogy.

As before, Nolan has done his homework on the Batman storyline. He and crew have creatively put their own twist on it without crossing any lines; only blurring them to achieve great cinematic effect. Great action for those type of fans who don't know much of the Batman story; great story for those of us who do. Indie art house fans who wont budge for anything remotely this big, this is not for you, or your judgement. I can confidently say you have less than ZERO input! It's a bittersweet fulfillment to watch this empire say farewell, but the bar has been raised so high, one would doubt that it can be matched or outdone for that matter. However, with that said, the potential for reboots and/or continuations could be astonishing. On a side note, my heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims in Colorado.
