Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Review

I'm a big comic book/movie fan, so I've wanted to see this movie when it first came out but due to a horrific tragedy with the movie shooting in Colorado I was too paranoid to go. With that being said, I finally did put on my big girl shoes and went to go see it this past weekend. There are no spoiler alerts here because I don't want to ruin anything so others that didn't see it can enjoy it.

This is the third installment of the Batman trilogies, well Christopher Nolan's version. There are some of the original characters like Christian Bale as Batman, the butler, the mayor etc. but there was new additions like Cat woman played as Anne Hathaway and the villain Bane played as Tom Hardy. So the synopsis of the movie is after 8 years of "The Dark Knight" terrorists leader Bane comes to town and pushes Gotham City police forces to their limits. This also forces Batman to resurface from retirement after taking the fall for Harvey Dent's crimes. He has to save the city even though the city thinks he's the enemy.

Long story short, I liked the movie, even though at times I became paranoid in the movie theater. Watching people come in, sitting down, getting up etc. I enjoyed the movie for the most part. The movie is about 2 hours and 45 minutes but it didn't seem that way, there was enough action to keep the plot going. I wanted to also add that the character Bane was really good in this movie. Most people like the second installment a little bit better but this movie did its part also. It's a go see in my book.



  1. I thought it was a good movie although I didn't really dig the hole Batman retired bit. Bane was a cool bad guy but I thought they could've gotten a better catwoman. All in all I say go see it. J.T. PS Love you baby!

    1. I agree J.T. the movie was good, yeah it was weird watching batman sitting back in his retirement. The Catwoman character should have been a different actress with more of an edge. Awww! I love you too babe! :)
