Dark Knight Movie Review - 5 Stars
I didnt know what to expect. All of the other "Batman" trilogy films from Christopher Nolan were great productions. Were they so good that I was dying to see them again? No. Once was enough. Even the last one, which featured Keith Ledger as "Joker." It was pretty damn good. But "pretty damn good," will not bring me back to the theater to spend another $13.00 on a movie ticket (I could sure as hell find alot of things to do with $13.00). So I went into this viewing with no expectations. Everyone was building an insurmountable degree of hype for the flick. From facebook to twitter, everyone was talking about how good it was. So there was one thing left to do. Experience the hype, the final "Batman Nolanization," for myself.
"The Dark Knight Rises" lived up to its hype. I don't say this often, but if a movie could be 'perfect,' this was a pure example. Everything was just superb; from the action, to the suspense, directing, romance, storyline, you name it. The weird thing about this flick, is that it kept getting better and better. More obstacles, more twists, just more everything. Christian Bale of course was excellent, but the exceptional acting was noticeable from the supporting cast. Anne Hathaway was perfect for Selina Kyle. A fresh face in the trilogy was refreshing not only because she is super hot (like really attractive, and her outfit had me drooling over my arm chair), but her level of acting was phenomenal. Another acting surprise was from Michael Caine who played Alfred. To make a movie of this proportion, it had to have been a team effort. This was a team effort. The music complimented the acting sequence, which just illuminated the special effects of each scene. So who *made* the movie? Bane! This guy was as good if not a better villain than The Joker.He was as dark a nemesis, and arguably the most formidable opponent against the cape crusader ever. His portrayal as this cold, machine, brewed from the depths of hell; paints him even more as what he calls, "Gotham's Reckoning."
After the movie, I was in a state of shock. My mind was paralyzed. The quality of this movie took me by surprise. I had trouble walking to my car. When I got inside, I just sat. Sat behind the wheel, knowing that greatness could be achieved; perfection could be achieved. So ina way, this movie was inspiring. What do I see in the future for this movie? Awards. Oscars, Golden Globe, all of it. The best movie I remember being this good was the movie "300." Since then, there have been great productions, but this? This will be viewed, watched, remembered for years to come. Real interesting to see the box office numbers. "The Avengers" had the biggest opening of all time; which can not hold a candle next to The Dark Knight (meaning its not as good). Last words? Go see this movie. If you don't your missing out. *Puts on Batman's cape and cowl. Fires his slight shot thingy in the balcony. Music plays in background. Bat symbol shows* Until next time!
