Blunt Reviews Presents: The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

the dark knight rises

The third installment to director and writer Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, which is a strong addition to the already near perfect film series. Nolan is a genius of cinema and so it’s still admirable to see someone making intelligent and artistic blockbusters for mass audiences. The scale is larger than before, with a more brutal villain than we have previously seen, but the cast still performs excellently under Nolan’s ever impressive directing. What I love about this film is there is a lot of focus on character and screenplay, with technical mastery thrown in for good measure. Pure genius.

  1. My only problem with this film was that Bane was not the true master-mind behind the taking of Gotham. I really wanted it to be two titans with the same orphaned past to have fought it out. I felt he was undermined in that moment when the real master-mind is revealed. Not that I would give it one less star. I just thought that this guy was his match in every way. (Except for the back breaking thing.)
