Review: The Dark Knight Rises
Great. Just GreatAfter being a massive fan of the Dark Knight it was great to anticipate Christopher Nolan's follow up from that great classic superhero film. After wondering wether he could pull of a great follow up to that great film. I was staunch with anticipation to achieve the such things.
I walked in with hand's done with the biggest anticipation of any film in the summer. Was I pleased? Defiantly. Everything about was excellent.
The performance's of the leads was quite spectacular. With Christian Bale's and Anne Hathaway's performance of the two leads where amazing. Christian Bale's batman was excellent with his performance of "Batman on the edge" was defiantly quite compelling. Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle or Catwoman dispelled all issues one would have when hearing about her casting. Also dispelling all misgivings of Halle Berry's Catwoman which was truly truly awful. Also the supporting cast of Michael Cain, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levit and Marion Cotillard where all spectacular to watch.
Tom Hardy's villain of Bane could have been the hole in Christopher Nolan's film. After following Heath Ledgers Joker who was hands down the best superhero villain portrayal of all time. He could have cracked under pressure. Luckily although not as compelling as Ledger's Joker as (he was not meant to be) the plan of his had complete relevance to America today which was nice to see. Although I had some issues hearing him with his mask under him with it reminding me of Darth Vader in some places.
A perfect ending to a great film franchise. Which has just gotten better and better throughout the saga.
