The Dark Knight Rises

I don’t want to give away anything, so let me put that to rest right off the bat (get it?).  It was a really good movie and all the parts were played very well.  It certainly was not the end to the trilogy that I expected.

It was exciting and tense, the 2.5 hours seemed to go by pretty quick as I thought the story kept rolling on without many lulls.  There are a few things I would have changed for sure I think, just to satisfy my ideal Batman movie, but it was really good.

I said to Amber on the way home that I liked The Dark Knight better though.  When she asked way I replied that I felt the Joker was more of a character. Yes Bane was played well and so was Catwoman, but the Joker as a character and specifically as played by Heath Ledger was outstanding.  I think if I was doing a Batman trilogy I would be having the plot build to where the Joker is the main bad guy in the third film. 

I will say that this particular story did seem more like a one-off graphic novel rather than part of the monthly series, if you follow my meaning.  Like it’s not something that would fit snugly into the main timeline of Batman history like the first two movies could have.

It’s totally worth seeing, I’m likely to see it at least twice, maybe three times if I can convince my dad to go. Out of 10, I’d give it a 9 (Batman begins would get a 9 as well and The dark Knight would get a 12).
