The Dark Knight Rises Reviews

Clayton Davis

If there were ever doubts about Christopher Nolan and his ability as a filmmaker, he puts all things to rest and declares himself one of the most innovative and visionary directors working today.

There's no contest. The Dark Knight Rises, which opens next week, is the most hotly anticipated movie of the summer. And yes, it lives up to the hype.

I was surprised at just how much of a great, thrilling time I had. It's a film that genuinely earns its stripes as a grand, epic work of cinema.

No villain could come close to matching Ledger's inspired Joker, but give Hardy credit for supplying Bane with plenty of conviction and gravitas in a movie that, frankly, is less about actors than knockout set pieces captured in eyeball-popping spectacles.

Caps off the trilogy with passion and dignity, if not always with slam-bang entertainment. Whoever directs the reboot in five years will have a lot to live up to.

Will Leitch

The movie's two hours and 44 minutes long but never drags, and it has at least five separate action set pieces that will drop your jaw, particularly if you see it in IMAX.

The Dark Knight Rises captures the spirit -- and cultural anxieties -- of the times.

The Patriot Ledger

The final installment in Christopher Nolan's pitch-black trilogy manages to be both relevant and topical while slavishly adhering to the stodgy tropes of the genre.

Gloom never looked as good as it does in the mesmerizing "The Dark Knight Rises."

Even with its flaws, The Dark Knight Rises is a solid film. It just fails to live up to the magnificent legacy created by the first two movies in the trilogy. To be fair, they were incredibly hard acts to follow.

Every facet of this impressive piece reaffirms the same thematic gristle as it forces the viewer to chew on the notion of personal responsibility.

The Dark Knight Rises is all about risks, and there are payoffs and failures to go with it.

This is a solid film, taking itself seriously and asking that we do the same.

It's not un-entertaining. Exhausting, a bit, but not un-entertaining.

An ambitious, honourable and satisfying conclusion to this genre-defining trilogy.

The Dark Knight Rises directly counters the arguments made against The Dark Knight. Maybe, sometimes, it is better to leave the demons unvanquished.

Technically, The Dark Knight Rises is a thick leatherbound volume with gilded pages, though flipping through it yields a story about a big bad bald man doing eeevil things until a vigilante with pointy ears comes to the rescue.

Weighed down by portentousness and momentousness. The overall story remains a bit muddled. A better trilogy-capper than a movie in its own right.

Movie Metropolis

There's plenty of action, intrigue, special effects, and high-tech gadgets to maintain our attention at least in spurts.

Projection Booth

There's enough that works in The Dark Knight Rises that I can overlook most of the more glaring flaws, but it remains to date the most disappointing film I've seen from 2012.
