Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about The Dark Knight Rises.
Digital Spy - 10/10 by Simon ReynoldsThe Dark Knight Rises is intelligent, heart-pounding spectacle cinema that grips like a vice from minute one and won't let go.
Film Journal International - 10/10 by Maitland McDonaghThe third Dark Knight movie once again pits Bruce Wayne/Batman against demons both within and without, raising the emotional stakes without shortchanging viewers who expect spectacular action sequences and creepy villains.
The Movie Minute - 10/10 by Joanna LangfieldAn antidote to comic book escapism, Christopher Nolan's take on Batman has never taken the easy road. Now, in the final chapter in the promised trilogy, the going is still tough. And the rewards are great.
Hollywood & Fine - 10/10 by Marshall FineAt times, the action is so massive and thunderously clunky that I might as well have been watching one of the Transformers movies.
NYC Movie Guru - 10/10 by Avi OfferSmartly-written, riveting and profoundly human with Oscar-caliber performances. It's the most emotionally and intellectually rewarding blockbuster in years, and thus far the best American film of 2012.
Playboy Online - 10/10 by Stephen RebelloThe bold, visionary film jolts us with its sense of scope, scale and social outrage that sometimes suggests novels by Charles Dickens and Victor Hugo.
2UE That Movie Show - 10/10 by Blake HowardThe reveal of this prestigious final act of the Dark Knight Trilogy will make you cry, it will make you cringe, it will give you goosebumps, and it will demand you to stand and applaud.
The Aristocrat - 10/10 by Adam Ross... if Gotham falls, so does Bruce Wayne. Rarely, in film, have we understood and sympathised with a hero's mission as much as Bruce's.
Projection Booth - 10/10 by Rob HumanickThere's enough that works in The Dark Knight Rises that I can overlook most of the more glaring flaws, but it remains to date the most disappointing film I've seen from 2012.
Washington City Paper - 10/10 by Tricia OlszewskiNolan exits the trilogy triumphant; it's just that, in some ways, he pales in comparison to himself.
Birth.Movies.Death. - 10/10 by Devin FaraciThe whole movie feels so like a series of contradictions - bloated and long yet rushed, deeply serious yet utterly silly, politically minded yet ultimately vapid - that being both wildly entertaining and a bad movie would be exactly right for it.
JoBlo's Movie Emporium - 10/10 by Chris BumbrayEverything I hoped it would be and more...
