Not to be outdone by the ridiculous voice of his co-star, Tom Hardy ups the stupid to 1000 for the second most cringe worthy performance of his career after Venom. The Dark Knight rises doesn't even attempt to make any sort of sense, as it's plot twists are lazy and deny all logic or scientific reason (punching a man with a spinal injury automatically fixes it in this world.) At this point did Nolan even give a shit?
Décevant à comparé à son prédécesseur. Le film souffre de longueurs et par moments on se demande carrément où ça s'en va. L'histoire est exagéré au point où on décroche. Par contre, Bane (Tom Hardy) est excellent. On adore le personnage, son sang froid et sa lucidité. - Was getting caught part of your plan? - Of course! [...] - Now what's the next step of your master plan? - Crashing this plane... :o
While Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' may not rise above the popularity of 'The Dark Knight,' it is important to consider that the trilogy should be watched in quick succession to fully appreciate the series. Each movie contains an essential portion of Bruce Wayne's journey from a man with nothing but despair into a symbol of hope. 4/5
Disappointing. Good: Oldman, Caine, Bale, some beatifully photographed scenes, ramifications from previous entries, sewer fight, courtroom. Bad: cheesy one-liners, too much repetitive action, needs way more breathing time and emotional setup, tells but doesn't show, cops v prisoners fight, JGL, too many undeveloped & needless characters, the abysmal ending. Nolan went BIGGER than TDK, should have gone more intimate
Final entry disappoint. Why not embrace it's comic book origins with Batman actually fighting the villains as he seem to not do that much in these films. Ending is also anti-climatic and disappoints as our hero has just started on his career before he decide to stop his calling. Anne Hathaway surprises as Catwoman though and the film is still beautiful visually to behold.
"The Dark Knight" told a crime opera with stakes as personal as the gun powder and gasoline the Joker favored for his terror campaign. With "Rises," Nolan expanded the scope to a level that's one part disaster movie, one part epic Russian novel. It means the screenplay devotes an unnecessary amount of pages to the mechanics of a fusion bomb, but the highs here are just as high as anything from its predecessor.
I'm about five years late on this one. Shame I didn't see it theaters. It's like everyone said, better than first, not as good as the second. Gotta be one of the greatest film trilogies next to Star Wars, and LOTR. Nolan's the only one who ever got the superhero thing right.
