John's Review of The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises(2012)
Very good movie. Not surprisingly, it doesn't even come close to the previous installment, however it's still very good in comparison to movies I've seen lately. Considering it's the third installment, it's a solid movie, whereas other trilogies, namely The Matrix trilogy, fell off much worse. The plot and issues are interesting, the progression is good, and there's plenty of action.
I didn't like the villian, Bane, however. I found him boring, generic, uninspired, and fake. There were also some very very forced references and nostalgia that just seems more cheesy than anything, and takes away from the seriousness of the series.
Other than that, it was good though. A little overly hyped, but not a disappointment in the least.
