Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about The Dark Knight Rises.
ABC News Radio - 10/10 by David BlausteinMy issues with it are few and didn't detract from my love for this film, which I believe you're going to love, too.
Starburst - 10/10 by Katherine McLaughlinIntense action and emotion make for gripping viewing and along with a dash of playfulness that occasionally lifts the dark mood it feels like the comic book hero has been rightly adapted for our times.
Sight and Sound - 10/10 by Kim NewmanAs befits the saga's engagement with the economics of Gotham City, a great deal of topical material floats about here, insufficiently digested.
Toledo Blade - 10/10 by Kirk BairdThe Dark Knight Rises is all about risks, and there are payoffs and failures to go with it.
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.
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.
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.
Reel Film Reviews - 10/10 by David NusairChristopher Nolan's Batman saga comes to an end with this engrossing and absolutely spellbinding installment...
Montreal Film Journal - 10/10 by Kevin N. LaforestOne hell of an ambitious, provocative, epic picture.
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) - 10/10 by Linda CookIt rises above other sequels and its predecessors.
