The Dark Knight Rises Review

I’m relatively neutral on Batman as a character and generally exhausted of superhero movies, but my hubby picked it up for himself, and I figured I could at least take the necessary time to watch from the comfort of my own home. Minimal effort on my part after all.

Here’s my thoughts:

Bane’s voice was theatrically comical.

The 2 hour 44 minute length is in in no way justified by the content presented in the movie. It did not leave me feeling that every scene and every line shown HAD to be there to grasp the movie. It just…dragged.

The movie takes itself way too seriously.

I was more annoyed than sympathetic with Alfred.

It felt like more of a showcase for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character than a Batman movie though I admittedly did at least like his character.

The ending left me feeling a lot better than the rest of the movie.
