William's Review of The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises(2012)
Ambitious, intense, and even thought it didn't stick the landing on everything it took on, nothing felt ineffective. The weakest part of the movie was probably just Cotillard's acting and perhaps her characterization, but considering how much shit was jam packed into these three hours, that's small potatoes. TDKR possessed an almost incessant visual intensity in lock-step with that score that seemed to rise and swell from start to finish. I liked it more than TDK and BB. The actual movie-waching experience was an awesome 5 in IMAX - so many of the scenes used the extra-screen that IMAX provides, and TDKR had more footage shot with IMAX cameras than any feature to date.
