I know I'm a little late on this review, but I had to REALLY think about my overall opinion on this movie. The Dark Knight Rises was by far the most anticipated movie of
Dent Act". Meanwhile a new menacing criminal mastermind by the name of Bane (Tom Hardy) brings his army to Gotham just to wreck shit. Now with Gotham in trouble, Wayne has to come out of seclusion and has to put that mask back on. "Why?" you ask? because he is the goddamn Batman that's why! The main characters are all back in their original roles along with some new characters. Anne Hathaway plays Selina Kyle a.k.a Catwoman. Joesph Golden-Levitt plays John Blake, a Gotham police officer who has a good heart, and Marion Cotillard plays Miranda Tate, board member of Wayne Enterprises that takes care of Bruce Wayne's money.
Michelle Pfeiffer's version was better. However, Nolan's version of Catwoman was the one that was more close to the comic book. Anne Hathaway was the perfect fit for that role, and honestly I couldn't see anybody else pulling it off. She even pulled off those fight moves like she was Xena, I fucking loved it!
Also another thing I found annoying about the film was Christian Bale's Batman voice. He was STILL talking like he has a bunch of balls in his throat. I don't know WHY he kept doing that shit with his voice but it just so damn annoying. I mean there even comes a point in the movie where damn near everybody knows who really is and he is STILL using that voice. It became almost comical at some points, but whatever. It is what it is...
Overall, it was a good movie and in my opinion it lived up to the hype. Was it one of Chris Nolan's best movies? I wouldn't say that much, but it WAS a good movie. Now this IS the final chapter in Bruce Wayne's story. Now if you asking me if he dies or not, well you just gotta see the movie for yourself. Or if you followed me on twitter, you would already know what the answer is, so it's on you to decide. Now IF Warner Brothers decides to make another Batman movie, Nolan has REALLY set the standard high. and God bless anybody who wants to put their hands in it. Now is it better then that other super hero movie that came out a few months ago? Well, in my opinion it comes down to preference. I prefer both kind of superhero movies, ones that are both action packed, and also serious at the same time. As of right now Chris Nolan's Dark Knight Saga will go down as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. That is IF Hollywood decides to push that reset button..
