I had the honor of watching TDKR during a screening and was completely blown away! Christopher Nolan’s third film in his Batman trilogy doesn’t disappoint. The movie is incredibly well made, its huge production is quite breathtaking to view. This is a true cinematic experience, to behold. The movie exceeded my expectations in terms of action, and entertainment. The movie’s score high-lites many of its incredible scenes, and at times, it takes your breath away.
The film featured excellent performances, by all the cast. Christian Bale, as always is great as Batman. Anne Hathaway was completely engrossing, she became “Catwoman”, just like Michele Pfeiffer did, although their interpretations were very different, both were equally effective. Tom Hardy was the main villain “Bane” completely shattered my expectations. One of the best superhero movie villains, I’ve ever seen. The terror caused by him, is completely believable and quite menacing. Marlion Cotilliard, Michael Cane, Gary Oldman, and others all did well in their respective roles. Now I know most will miss Heath Ledger as the Joker.(I know I do) I hope people don’t compare Tom Hardy’s performance to Heath Ledger’s, its completely unfair and the two characters are very different. Just read the comics.
The colossal size of the film is a spectacle to behold, but surprisingly you don’t get lost with all the explosions and extravagant action scenes, like in other films,(AKA Transformers, or POTC.) If one were to gripe, and I suppose there will never be a film made that one cannot find a point at which to grip, it is painfully long running time here. I found myself more worried about the pain in my posterior than the emotional final minutes after 3 hours (including ads and previews) that I had spent in a cramped seat, but that’s just how I am. However the ending is just fantastic, so emotional and bring the trilogy to a very satisfying end.
Sorry if I’m being all fan-boyish and kissing this movie’s behind, but I really admire it. It may not be among my personal favorites but generally this seems to be the movie event of this year. As a film though, this is amazing. A true lasting legacy in superhero story telling and summer-blockbusters.
I cannot recommend this film anymore than I have, I just have to say everyone and anyone should see it. 10/10
