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.
Kaplan vs. Kaplan - 10/10 by David KaplanI can think of at least four good reasons to plunk down extra cash to see "The Dark Knight Rises" on your nearest IMAX screen.
Urban Cinefile - 10/10 by Louise KellerAnne Hathaway is the best thing in this tediously overlong, disappointing final chapter of Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy
St. Paul Pioneer Press - 10/10 by Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)The length feels both appropriate and symbolic: Appropriate because this is the conclusion of an epic. And symbolic because, whereas many big movies feel rushed and sloppy, this is one where they took the time to get everything right.
Reel Film Reviews - 10/10 by David NusairChristopher Nolan's Batman saga comes to an end with this engrossing and absolutely spellbinding installment...
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.
Truthdig - 10/10 by Richard SchickelThe Dark Knight Rises simply wanders fecklessly to some kind of a conclusion, aspiring, sometimes, to a tragic note but mostly out for a good time, which it rarely achieves.
New York Post - 10/10 by Lou LumenickChristopher Nolan's dramatically and emotionally satisfying wrap-up to the Dark Knight trilogy adroitly avoids clichés and gleefully subverts your expectations at every turn.
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.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 10/10 by Joe WilliamsSpoiler alert: "The Dark Knight Rises" will earn a billion dollars, be the subject of more master's theses than "Citizen Kane" and win the Academy Award for best picture.
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.
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.
