The Dark Knight Rises- Movie Review

Roochster

After months of waiting, the Dark Knight (Batman) finally rose and that too more than once in the movie! Haha here’s my review of the biggest movie of the year!

Christopher Nolan’s third movie and final in the Batman trilogy is about the Dark Knight’s comeback. After the death of District Attorney Harvey Dent, Bruce Wayne (Batman) takes a backseat and stops making a difference to society as Batman because he takes the blame of Dent’s death. But Bane, a scary looking masked terrorist is on the loose and he’s planting bombs all over Gotham city. And so, the Dark Knight rises.

The man that makes the trilogy so good is Christopher Nolan. No offence to the actors and the others, but this director is the genius behind the legend ‘The Dark Knight’. He’s in a way given Batman a new look, a new image without taking away the image of our childhood superhero.  His thought process is great and he makes any film look like magic. I loved the effects, the cinematogprahy and the look of the film. However, the editing could have been crisper because 2 hrs and 45 minutes is a little too long and to be honest, I did get a little restless in the second half of the movie even though the first half was superb. The build up to the part where we finally see Batman is great! I just had to hoot when I saw Batman on screen, that was something everyone was eagerly waiting for!

Christian Bale as Batman is perfect! His physique, height and acting make him the best choice! Anne Hathway came as a pleasant surprise to me with her role and the way she acted it. We’re so used to seeing her as this sweet, beautiful looking actress in happy roles, always smiling. But she effortlessly played the character of a jewel thief and it was probably her best performance yet! Tom Hardy (Bane) was good and looked threateningly scary with his body and mask but there’s no comparison to our favourite villain- The Joker (Heath Ledger) from The Dark Knight. All the other performances were good. I also thought Jospeh Gordon-Lewitt who played Detective John Blake has great screen presence and played his part very well. Somehow, the Batman-Selina combination reminded me of our very own Aishwarya-Hrithik jodi in Dhoom 2. Some of you who’ve seen the movie might agree with what I’m saying.

Overall, The Dark Knight Rises is a great movie which most people will love. I was a little disappointed with the length of the movie; I would give an extra star had it been a 2 hour movie, which would even leave me wanting more, but for now I’ll stick to 4 out of 5 stars.

Rating– 4/5
