The Dark Knight Rises Reviews

August 1, 2015
It's a film with so much it wants to say that the words sometimes collide.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Nolan has become hooked on the grandiose, at times even the biblical. For anyone who admired the witty playfulness of his early films, it's a dark night indeed.

I respected The Dark Knight Rises; I didn't quite love it.

The original creator Bob Kane, who was given the task of creating a real world superhero to counter Superman, would have been immensely proud of this film. Because this is as real as it gets... and then some.
July 28, 2015
Although often absorbing and on par with the quality of spectacle we expect from the franchise Rises proves that its predecessor is a film nearly impossible to follow.

Maybe not quite up to the standard of the first two in the series, but deserving of a very honourable mention.

The Bat-brigade as well as Christopher Nolan zealots will doubtless go batty over The Dark Knight Rises.

You end up wanting more.

June 22, 2015
As befits the saga's engagement with the economics of Gotham City, a great deal of topical material floats about here, insufficiently digested.
June 22, 2015
The Dark Knight Rises is an intense and brutal viewing experience, easily the most emotionally exhausting of the three films.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
May 3, 2015
A sprawling mess that basically reboots itself and starts all over again roughly halfway through its ludicrous 164-minute running time.
October 17, 2014
Cold, bleak and brutal, it's easily the moviegoing spectacle of the year.

The pleasure, however preposterous, is in Nolan's dedication -- creating, maintaining, and to an extent defending a universe in which people still take this stuff very seriously.

September 14, 2014
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.
September 8, 2013
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.
August 3, 2013
[This] wrap-up wraps up few of the threads in the first two films, and that the climactic cliff-hangers are nothing special (as well as flabbily edited).
August 3, 2013
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.

July 16, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B
June 23, 2013
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.
