Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, the Dark Knight is forced to return from his imposed exile to save Gotham City from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman.
Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent's crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane's plans to destroy the city. Written by
From the moment I saw The Dark Knight I couldn't wait to see the sequel, but I must say, the dark knight rises disappoints in so many ways compared to the previous movie. After the first 30 minutes my last hope was the character of Bane to spice up the movie a bit so we can feel at least partially the greatness of the previous movie, but that did not happen at all. The character of Bane, sounding funny, with no expressions at all, with this funny, performance-limiting mask, was huge disappointment for me. The movie lacks the involvement of Gotham's people, lacks the outstanding joker craziness yet somehow brilliant approach to bring the dark side in most innocent of Gotham's, and the Gotham's finest, and bring them to uncontrollable chaotic madness. It is an expensive movie, I'l give you that, you can feel it all the way, but that wasn't even close to good enough. You can't just throw in expensive actors and expect a great movie from that investment alone. Huge disappointment for me, I was expecting something entirely different from this picture. All this unconvincing talking an talking, few poorly calculated "bang" scenes and whole lot of disappointment trough the entire movie.
I missed the Joker's brilliance and simplicity so painfully :( "Madness is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.." but this movie lacks a lot more then "little push" I can't hardly rate it even "half as good"
