Over the weekend I went to see The Dark Knight Rises. It was amazing. I have honestly not seen a better movie, at least not in recent memory. This is best described as an experience rather than a movie. The cinematography was incredible.The acting was top notch. Much better than you would expect. With Bale, Hathaway, Hardy and Cotillard how can you go wrong? and Michael Cain devoted so much to this film, you can practically feel his emotion. His performance forces you to become emphatic . Christian Bale was great as usual. Now lets discuss Anne Hathaway. When it was announced she would be playing the role of Selina Kyle I was certainly against it, but she really performed impressively. I never imagined Hathaway pulling off a character like Selina Kyle, but she did a truly fantastic job. She was somewhat of a show stealer.
I know that the length of the film might be off-putting, it is almost a 3 hour long film, but to be completely honest I could have sat in that movie theater for at least another hour. I didn’t want the film to end. It never once became dull.
If there is one thing I have been reminded of from this film it is that a movie can be entirely enjoyable and exciting all while being well made and intelligent. This film is a masterpiece in its own right, and Christopher Nolan did a fantastic job and should be proud. This trilogy will become a classic.
