Review: The Dark Knight Rises
Spoiler free mini reviewNolan's final Batman film is dry, heavy, bleak and rather joyless. It's a good film, but it's lacking in the 'fun' of the first two movies, and which you'd expect of a comic book movie. Batman himself never really gets a chance to shine, there's always too much going wrong. It's also overly-long, with some parts dragging on more than they should have; a tighter edit would have done a lot for it. Still, there were a lot of standout moments, and the final act is amazing. I'm complaining about it more than it deserves: it's a fitting end to the Dark Knight's trilogy, and is definitely worth seeing.
