“ Com um cast incrível e um tema difícil como super-heróis, o diretor Christopher Nolan brilha em sua direção. Adaptar filmes baseados em HQ's nunca foi fácil e ultimamente vemos uma popularização do mesmo. Esses filmes atuais de heróis estão sendo muito comerciais, levando as coisas para um lado cômico fácil/clichê e se esquecendo da história em si. Sim, eles são engraçados e divertidos para assistir com o intuito de passar o tempo, sem dúvida. Mas não são memoráveis. No meio disso tudo surge Christopher Nolan que tenta fazer um filme um tanto político e com uma história sólida, e consegue brilhantemente. Amo esse filme, amo esse cast (destaque para a fantástica atuação de Heath Ledger) e amo a maneira como os personagens são abordados. ” - lua-and-the-flowers

“ Assisti à esse filme com a pulga atrás da orelha, com medo de que eles não conseguissem superar o filme anterior. As expectativas estavam altas e o medo de se decepcionar era grande. Entretanto, fui surpreendida ao perceber o quão bom esse filme também era, e digo até tão bom quanto o Cavaleiro das Trevas. Espetacular! A história se manteve sólida e cativante, e o cast só melhorou (destaque para a atuação de Anne Hathaway e Joseph Gordon Levitt). Concluo portanto: UMA TRILOGIA ÉPICA. ” - lua-and-the-flowers
