Hello! This is my 600th post on my blog. Crazy!
We watched The Dark Knight Rises this weekend.
Here’s our IMDB description: “Eight years on, a new evil rises from where the Batman and Commissioner Gordon tried to bury it, causing the Batman to resurface and fight to protect Gotham City… the very city which brands him an enemy.”
I had mixed feelings about this movie. It gets points for the return of Morgan Freeman and that guy who plays THE most perfect Alfred ever, Michael Caine. Christian Bale? Meh. He’s there. He’s adequate. What else is there to say?
Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, is played by Anne Hathaway, who I really like. I didn’t like her in this role, however. She comes off too nice and too…not glamorous. She’s cute, not sultry.
Bane was odd. His voice sounded exactly like Sean Connery’s. The sound of it was distracting, and it also seemed like too old of a voice for the character. He was pretty ruthless, a good bad guy, for sure.
As usual, the gadgets are the best part of the movie. The Bat, the motorcycle, just yes. The action was on par with the other movies, fighting and such. I didn’t think this one had as much personality as Batman Begins or The Dark Knight. For too much of the movie, Batman was not kicking ass.
The Dark Knight Rises gets a B+.
