As we all know there has been a violent tragedy that has overshadowed this movie in an unfortunate way for the families and for the makers of this film. My heart and prayers go out to the families and friends who are connected to the Aurora Colorado shootings.
With that said I was one of the people who didn’t want to allow that tragedy to keep me from leaving the house of feeling safe in my local theater and boy am I glad I went. Not to be shown up by all the wonderful releases we’ve seen from Marvel, DC Comics pushes back with a vengeance and reminds comic fans everywhere that they are still in the game! Christopher Nolan does NOT disappoint with this flick. The movie takes us eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, where Gotham City is in a state of peace. Under powers granted by the Dent Act,Commissioner James Gordon has nearly eradicated violent and organized crime. With that said Commissioner Gordon is feeling guilty about the cover-up of Harvey Dent’s crimes, however, he decides that the city is not ready to hear the truth. As you can see it’s very important to remember the plot of the first movie so that you can fully comprehend this one, so it may be a good idea to watch that one before you see this one.
The Dark Knight Rises was full of content, action packed, thought provoking and well assembled. One of the huge anticipations of the summer was the appearance of Cat Woman, played by Anne Hathaway… while I can say this movie was EPIC, I can’t say that her performance was, however, I DO love her as an actress and I can say she did ok… in my opinion there was a little something missing from her that “Je ne sais quoi“. Bane the villain of the movie makes for a worthy opponent for Batman, the dynamic was quite interesting to watch AND it was fun seeing Batman’s new toys, lol. All in all while the movie was 3 hours long it definitely didn’t feel long in any aspect, in fact you were left wanting more and with surprises to come, my advice is to Use The Restroom BEFORE the movie… you won’t want to miss a thing!
