Haha, thanks Mystir! I'm just thinking that now more people will have heard of him, aside from comic book fans.

Saw this last night and loved every second. Bale was yet again fantastic, and it was a great way to end the trilogy.

Spoiler:
The twist was very clever as well, having you believe Bane was the brains behind the whole plan before finding out it was Raj Al Guls daughter.

There were one or two parts where you had to stop and think a second to wonder what Bane said but other than that no problems. I know they said that they didn't re do the voice after problems at the test screening but that's bollix.

I'm going to have to watch it again soon, give a second opinion on it. For me though, the Joker is still the best bad guy. RIP Heath, the performance of that character was on another level.

Agree Morg but overall this was a far better film. You take Ledger out of TDK it goes to a 6/7 from about 9. I thought this was a superior effort.

Hardy is such a wonderfull actor , so i was abit gutted that he had this mask on which doesnt show the subtities of his acting, but at the same time still well done and the character fitted the story-ledgers joker was immense though, but in a way somewhat stole the show.

This film was more like a continuation from batman beigins

A very good film in my view. More of a summer blockbuster in feel than I expected (and a fantastic spectacle on the IMAX screen), but I was impressed with the fairly intricate weaving together - in terms of basic plot threads but also pulling in elements of storylines and characters from the source material. I take people's point that it's more like a sequel to Batman Begins than The Dark Knight, but the consequences of the 2nd instalment are of key importance to set up as well.

Anyway, in summary - impossible for it to have exceeded expectations given how high they were, but I still thought it was excellent.

BTW - a nice surprise to see a new trailer for 007 Skyfall before the movie, exclusively on IMAX I think though.

Spoiler:

Thought that the variation on the Knightfall story was well executed within this particular trilogy's feel and mythology (i.e. they couldn't have Bane release all the crazy supervillains from Arkham, but instead start off with Batman already being physically weak from years of battering followed by years of inaction, and then Bane taking pretty much everything else from Bruce before physically besting him).

Although I found it hilarious at the time that young Joey King spilled the beans in an interview a while ago (presumably by accident) that she played the young Talia Al-Ghûl in the film, that coupled with rumours [despite flat denial by Marion Cotilliard] unfortunately completely spoiled the reveal for me even before the lights went down...

I was aware of rumours regarding John Blake's character, but his journey came as a surprise to me - if for no other reason that I thought Christian Bale had said from the outset that he wouldn't do a Batman film if there was a Robin in them. OK, so it's not the traditional Robin, but still...

Thought Anne Hathaway was excellent. I think she has proved that her already impressive range now encompasses "kick butt". Was her young sidekick named in the film? I presumed she's Holly from Year One.

Here's an intriguing idea - although Nolan and Bale have said it would be their last Batman film, the interviews in Empire didn't seem to have such a sense of finality about them ("no expectation to make another, but never say never" sort of thing). Someone said it would be cool if they came back in 20 years time to do their version of The Dark Knight Returns - possibly Bale, can't remember. Might be difficult though given that they've used some of the ideas already (e.g. I'm sure someone could write a good essay comparing this incarnation of Bane and the mutant leader; "Hunt the Dark Knight" theme following the 2nd film and going into this one; the ending is not too dissimilar).

Spoiler:
I think John Blake could end becoming Batman in a reboot seems kind of setup that way, the Robin thing was just a nod to it I think, it also plays into the whole Batman is a symbol thing. It will have to be rebooted if they plan to make a Justice League thing which I guarantee you they are. I think Gordon Levitt was superb in his role annd while I don't think he will end up playing Robin, mainly because Nolan wouldn't do it even if they made another one I would think.

Okay. I really HATE to be that guy... because I wanted to love this film. I watched Batman Begins and the Dark Knight on Saturday and Sunday and I was very excited. But this was weaker than those films. It was a good ride, but maybe a victim of the hype and the sheer excellence of the second in the trilogy.

There were a lot of moments in the film where I just shook my head at the silliness of it; obviously it is silly, superhero films are all inherently silly if you think about them deeply, and if you're complaining about lack of realism in a Batman movie you're totally missing the point! But the first two I could only pick apart afterwards. This one, I didn't buy into it from the start.

But the magnificence of the first two is that Nolan managed to make them feel realistic as you were watching them, he made you suspend your disbelief and buy into it on an emotional level and at times that was a struggle for me in a way that it just wasn't with the first two. Maybe because in the TDK Heath Ledger was so captivating as the Joker you never questioned that character. Even though you so easily could. Bane, on the other hand- I never understood his motivations, he never frightened me or intrigued me. I felt like things happened in the TDK because the Joker acted in a way consistent with his character. I feel like Bane acted the way he did because things needed to happen. What motivations he did have felt like a rehash of the plot from Batman Begins.
Spoiler:
And the reveal/twist at the end didn't compensate for that. It didn't explain why Talia and Bane wanted to continue the work of the League of Shadows. On a very basic level. What motivates them? I still do not know.

Still really enjoyed those three hours you understand. The direction, music, sound design and acting were sensational as they always are with Chris Nolan. I'm not saying I didn't like it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. But I never loved it. It was good and thats all.

Spoiler:
Notch- bane was in love with talia- so would do anything for her, talia was neesans daugher who was killed by batman and also grew up in a horrid underground jail, do you need more motivation than that- really?

its very hard for an actor to potray his character with a mask on -0 but he did a brilliant job- the joker was immense , however the one thing i will say about bane is that - he made me fear for batman more than another villian in this trilogy, he was seriously tough

What motivates them? Good question, the League of Shadows like to apparently keep the world in order and were responsible for the collapse of the Roman Empire (strange people). That and what mysti said about Talia. I actually thought Al-Gul's story was a very good one. Did Nolan have that in mind from Batman Begins or did it just coincedentally fit in?

Post by Guest on Wed Jul 25, 2012 8:22 am

Here is my review of The Dark Knight Rises

Well the Batman triology is now finally over. How does it match up to it's predecessors? Well The Dark Knight was always a tall order to follow. The story in The Dark Knight fell into place nicely. Strangely I felt underwhelmed by The Dark Knight Rises. When Batman Begins fed into The Dark Knight, there wasn't much of massacre of characters. You had Rachel Dawes, Jim Gordon, Lucius Fox, Alfred Pennyworth. After the Dark Knight we lost Commisioner Loeb, Rachel Dawes, Harvey Dent. The timescales involved between the 2 movies was 2 years I think, when you leap onto 8 years further down the line with massive changes in story dynamics. The Batman was no more, all of Gothams criminals disappeared, Wayne Enterprises with different faces. It is a lot to take in for a saga to end. The story was packed into 2 hours and 45 minutes, but even then you felt would it be enough time for the characters to catch up with themselves.

Let us start with the new recruits. How good was Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard perform? They performed superbly. I thought Hathaway was brilliant as Catwoman. In terms of the differences in sexual persuasion compared with the Pfeiffer was lot less intense. I thought Hathaway did the character much more justice, especially from an action perspective. Tom Hardy was brilliant as Bane. I had reservations over how it would work and he did appear to be very physically intimidating. The mixture of violent and non-violent activities the balance he got was perfect. Josepth Gordon-Levitt was awesome. He really did throw himself into the role and stood out like his own individual. I think it is fair to say he eclipsed Bale and that is no easy feat. Granted he didn't have the same level of performance that Ledger did in the Dark Knight, but for a limited character he was quite amazing. Marion Cotillard was good. She didn't have much in the way of airtime so it is really difficult to make a lasting impression.

Now to Christian Bale. You feel for him. In 2 out of the 3 movies you feel he has been outperformed by the supporting cast. As a Batman was he the best? I would say yes. What worked in Keaton's favour when he was Batman was the lack in quality of storylines. The supporting cast had no chance. Maybe Nicholson and Walken may have tipped it, but clearly the storylines in the Nolan films contain much greater depth and insight.

Spoiler:
A final word to Nolan. Would I loved about this like with Inception was that he gave the ending to us the audience. We get to choose what ending we like and want to believe in. A stunning pice of film to be able to pull that off in 2 films let alone 1.

Wow your the first person i know to get bored of the dark knight!!

Batman returns is what got me more into this comic book genre in truth. I never liked superman or spiderman or batman before nolans films. I think Nolan has also eveloved the genre and we are getting much darker comic book films of the back of his work. Now i enjoy many comic book films

Oh Eirebilly!! I respect your opinion, but, since I know you're recovering at the moment, can I suggest that maybe you plonk them on the tv and try again??!

I understand that all these comic adaptions films are not everyone's taste (and I admit, some are definitely not mine), but I just love Nolan's dark and sinister take on them.

What a film! The (second?) plot twist was predictable in generalities but not necessarily specifics and basically was the

Well I watched this today and I've got to say I did really enjoy it.

I don't think it was quite as good as The Dark Knight, probably more on the level of Batman Begins. I felt in terms of style it was closer to Batman Begins as well, and I believe this is probably because of Heath Ledger's death changing any plans he must have had involving the Joker.

Spoiler:
I thought Bane was great, but was disappointed with the twist at the end for two reasons; 1. I felt it took away from Bane as a villain a bit, because I loved the presentation of him as an intellectual fighting for himself rather than as a goon, or bodyguard, but by twisting it to show that he wasn't the mastermind took away from him a bit I thought and 2. I thought the twist was too similar to the one in Batman Begins where the real Raaz Al Ghul was Liam Neeson.

Overall though I thought it was a great film, I feel bad criticising it because I did really enjoy it. I didn't think it was quite on the level of the Dark Knight, but The Dark Knight, for me, is a film that can't be matched in that genre, or at least would be very difficult.

Just got back from watching it. Thought it was good but not great.

My problems were with these points:

Spoiler:
1. How stupid was the opening sequence? Why wouldnt they have checked who was under the hood? If they had, bang bang. Film over.
2. The plane sequence - a bit elaborate a plan that could have so easly have gone wrong!
3. Why did they need the scientist exactly? All that effort so they could put him out on the field and ask him if he is a nuclear scientist! Dress up a Hobo and give him a hot dog. A lot cheaper!
4. When Bruce shags the woman they show her tattoo. It was akin to a plot reveal in a stupid action movie. "whats that you are wearing? A watch that can stop time for 20 seconds? Thats cool, I am sure that will never be mentioned again during this film" And on top of that, the scar/ tattoo wasnt mentioned again!
5. Too much reliance on batcopter.
6. Bane died way too easily. He virtually breaks batman over 2 hours and he gets hot by hte batbike. Reminiscent of the ending of MI3 which ended within seconds.
7. Bane would follow his women to the end of the world. However after all that he had gone through, he couldnt wait for the bomb to go off and had to beat up batman?
8. Timescales - within about 5 minutes, the bomb had 6months, 3months, 48 days, 24 hours, 12 hours and then 15 minutes to detonation.
9. The editing - quite a few times, the editing just seemed to jump about - when the cops came out of the tunnel -random jump. When the gloved police officer was shooting at the armoured car ("shoot them all") - didnt see him getting shot but just lying on the floor.


Apart from that, I enjoyed it!

Spoiler:


1. How stupid was the opening sequence? Why wouldnt they have checked who was under the hood? If they had, bang bang. Film over.- its a film-these things happens in all films I have just learned to accept that fiction is fiction because we could pick at every film ever made
2. The plane sequence - a bit elaborate a plan that could have so easly have gone wrong! same as above
3.
Why did they need the scientist exactly? All that effort so they could
put him out on the field and ask him if he is a nuclear scientist! Dress
up a Hobo and give him a hot dog. A lot cheaper!- think you missunderstood this- they needed the scientist to turn it into a bomb in the first place
4. When Bruce shags
the woman they show her tattoo. It was akin to a plot reveal in a
stupid action movie. "whats that you are wearing? A watch that can stop
time for 20 seconds? Thats cool, I am sure that will never be mentioned
again during this film" And on top of that, the scar/ tattoo wasnt
mentioned again!
5. Too much reliance on batcopter. really!
6. Bane died
way too easily. He virtually breaks batman over 2 hours and he gets hot
by hte batbike. Reminiscent of the ending of MI3 which ended within
seconds.- his weakness was the mask- batman only had to break it and bane would feel pain- that was also explained in the film
7. Bane would follow his women to the end of the world.
However after all that he had gone through, he couldnt wait for the bomb
to go off and had to beat up batman?
8. Timescales - within about 5
minutes, the bomb had 6months, 3months, 48 days, 24 hours, 12 hours and
then 15 minutes to detonation. i dont really think it was within 5 mins- but even if it was - its a film thats on for 2.5 hours
9. The editing - quite a few times,
the editing just seemed to jump about - when the cops came out of the
tunnel -random jump. When the gloved police officer was shooting at the
armoured car ("shoot them all") - didnt see him getting shot but just
lying on the floor. to much nit picking there for me mate.I like nitpicking but not to that extent- films are more about the overall experience for me But i will discuss major plot holes- but i cant really find any in any of nolans work!

I think mystiroakey may have covered some of the points I'm about to make:

Spoiler:
1. I asked myself this question while watching, then thought they must have just been trying to protect themselves, their identities and stuff. I don't think they wanted to just kill him anyway, as they spoke to him when they realised it was him for a bit.
2. This is pretty much what happens in all action films, it looked cool to be fair.
3. They needed the scientist to turn it into a bomb, I did think it was quite clear, so you've probably just forgotten now.
4. To be honest, I actually think it was done quite well, because until you mentioned it I couldn't even remember. It was a little hint that most would forget.
5. I sort of agree, but I don't think it was ever used when not necessary.
6. I agree, but at that point I thought that Bane had been slightly ruined anyway when it was revealed that he wasn't really behind it.
7. I don't see why it would make a difference, Catwoman would have presumably arrived and shot him whether he was attacking Batman or not. It'd also make no difference to his love as nobody would ever know after the bomb goes off.
8. I thought the timing was fine, and would rather they sped it up a bit, as it's better than dragging it on.
9. I'm pretty sure the second one (I can't remember the first) was entirely intentional. You had her saying "shoot them all", you hear gunfire, cuts to him and he's dead, not poor editing, just didn't want to show the actual shooting for dramatic effect I'd imagine.

With regards to the scientist, I do remember why they needed him but he did what he needed to do in a millisecond!

It was just the whole parading him in front of the crowd scene that was nonsense!

The only point I agree with is the beginning scenes. Otherwise I thought I was MUCH better than the Dark Knight, which was good anyway. The parading the scientist about was so that the US government recognised him and realised the gravity of the situation and the expertise behind the claims he was making. I think it was very necessary Tj avoid a massive plot hole

a milisecond- are you serious, The film didnt explain how long it took, and what does it matter- not sure i understand your issue with timing in films. RE: Your second point . Its what comic book 'villians' do mate, they love the attention and shock factor..

Oh Eirebilly!! I respect your opinion, but, since I know you're recovering at the moment, can I suggest that maybe you plonk them on the tv and try again??!

I understand that all these comic adaptions films are not everyone's taste (and I admit, some are definitely not mine), but I just love Nolan's dark and sinister take on them.

I may try that one day blue but they really havent jumped out and made me want to watch them.

I can see what Adam is saying. The beginning yes in some ways would happen probably 1 out of 10, but thats the point when a plan does come together. In a sense it was like the opening scene from Scream when Barrymore was killed. I mean that was amateur and should never happen.

The scientist issue, well I think it was more a symbolic thing with the message being well this guy has doomed you all.

I agree with Crimey with his bit about Bane in the spoiler. That was my exact thought too.

The start of the film for me was expectional-maybe highly unbelivable(this is a comic book fictional world mind!!) but set the scene for how evil and hardcore bane was. It really got to me how dark he was from the start.

there was no scientist issue. cant think of one in fairness

I think what Adam was implying was did the scientist require such a public audience given his involvement and that the people of Gotham had no idea who he was before the events unfolded. I may be mistaken though.

typical comicbook villian stunt- very much in keeping with the genre

It wasn't for the people of Gotham, it was for the US military!

Yeah, the US government knew he was as the CIA had kidnapped him for his paper on making the fusion reactor into a nuclear bomb.

Adam

The plane thing was a reference to The Dark Knight where Batman used a plane to snatch the guy from the building and get away, they show how even if Batman were to try that Bane can still out do that sort of manuvre.

Amazing from start to finish and completely eclipsed the previous 2 efforst in every single way if you ignore Ledgers performance!

To all those saying it is inferior to the dark night, everything but ledgers performance was better! Story, Bale, Action, Twists, Comedy - it had it all.

I'm going to see it again and I never had the inclination to see the dark night again in the movies!

It weren't that good... I will probably wait until it's on DVD to watch it again. The only films I watched more than once at the cinema was the Lord of The Rings (all three of them)! A lot of hours I won't get back haha.

mysti, I have all three of the extended editions on DVD. They're all like 4 hours long! I'm glad I was never into reading books. Had I ever read these books I would have probably felt let down by the movies. I was a big fan of cartoons growing up, so now to me all the films they are making (x-men, Ironman, Transformers, Spiderman, etc..) aren't that great.

Have you read LOTR... huge sections just left out of the films.

TDKR is just amazing, feel bad for anyone let down - got yourself too hyped up, I just checked which date was out and went along to see it, no idea of who the enemies where or what actors were in it etc. Gonna do the same with man of steel, 1 trailer thats it.

Ent I haven't read the books, I thought I stated that. Also, I assume that is where you take your nickname (Ent) from? I was always told there was a lot left out of the film. Tolkien wanted it to be one huge book but was told it was too big. All three of them seperated are also pretty big! I believe there was an entire final story left out of the third film, involving the Shire being attacked near the ending.

mysti, no not looking forward to The Hobbit. I've grown out of being excited by Tolkiens world and other fantasy films now. It's all been done and dusted. I will still go and see it though.

I'm excited about seeing Taken 2 and The Expendables 2 Smile.

I agree with Notch that there were points in the movie where I was thinking " what is Bane's story, his motivation to do this?" which I never had in the other 2 films BUT I was satisfied and very surprised by the twist in the end. A very good movie, an excellent end to the trilogy, but not quite as good as TDK.

Yeah it was late, the name is e n t rather than ent lol.

Yeah they left a big part of sams story out.

The hobbit should be great, also can't wait for taken and expendables sequels.

Those are possibly the least two films i am looking forward to. However i havent seen expendables. But taken was as average a thriller as i saw last year IMO

Taken is a great wee film, neeson is badass.

Expendables is/was a bit crap but the cast and sheer volume of action makes it and enjoyable 90 minutes.

Mind you I'm the kind of guy who goes to the movies every week.
