The Dark Knight Rises

I was really excited to see what Christopher Nolan had in store for us in his third installment of the Batman series. I was not disappointed in the least. Some might complain about the length of the movie, but I found that there were enough twists and turns in the plot to keep my interest.

I thought Christian Bale, one of my favorites, delivered another great performance. My natural inclinaiton to think back to watching “The Princess Diaries” with my little sister always makes me skeptical of anything Anne Hathaway is in, but I was pleasantly surprised with her portayal of Catwoman. If I had one complaint from this otherwise very entertaining movie, it would be the voice of Bane. I found it to be ridiculous and a little distracting.

All in all, I give it 4/5 Beach balls

  1. Loved the movie. Agree on Hathaway, I was not too thrilled when I heard she got the part. However, she was one of the high points of the film for me. Bane’s voice was off. I saw it for the first time in IMAX and didn’t understand 85% of what he said. Look forward to more reviews. Can’t wait to see you back next summer!

  2. I could NOT believe Tom Hardy played the…uh…”body” of Bane! The last thing I saw him in was the abysmal “This Means War,” and was shocked to see him so insanely stacked in TDKR!

  3. Hi Brandon! Wish you were helping us catch the Nats (can’t imagine how hard it must be for you to sit on the sidelines). Hope all is going well with your rehab.

    Your review pretty much echoes mine. Bane’s voice took me completely out of the movie, especially the opening scenes. Otherwise brilliant performances all around what a fantastic supporting cast.

  4. The second time through, I actually appreciated Bane’s voice. Still found it cheesy but in a good way. My first time through I almost choked on popcorn from laughing

  5. Even if you feel his voice was a bit off, you have to admit Tom Hardy’s performance was amazing. Not just the physical transformation he underwent for the role, but the way he played the character, in my opinion, was nothing short of perfect. The dialogue Nolan wrote for him was equally impressive and accurately gave Bane the intelligence he had in the comics along with the brutality. I just watched Hardy’s newest film Lawless last night and once again he didn’t disappoint. If you get the opportunity, check it out.

    As a lifelong Braves fan and aspiring filmmaker, I look forward to your opinions on film in the future, and wish you a speedy recovery and return from surgery.

    Thank you.

    • Hi HazelSorry for the delay in getting back to you. With colcmrmiaes the period of time it takes to make a decision is down to the client (Mr Heineken, Mr Nike whoever). This is usually linked to when the shoot date is. I have confirmed people on jobs the night before the shoot and even on the day of the shoot, but usually you should know a few days before (wardrobe call etc). So its a how long is a piece of string’ scenario i’m afraid, there is no set time. Best thing to do is email me the link to your clips and ill let you know if I think their damaging or not.Email to

  6. I couldn’t agree more with your review! I thought the performances by all the lead actors & actresses were phenomenal which made the movie amazing. I also had a hard time understanding what Bane said throughout the movie but the voice itself didn’t bother me that much. I saw this movie at the Studio Movie Grill in Alpharetta & if you haven’t been I highly recommend it, very cool way to watch a movie!
    I look forward to reading more of your movie reviews in future, but not nearly as excited as seeing you back on the mound next year healthy & dominating hitters again! Go Braves & keep your head up!!

  7. We really liked the film as well. Kept our attention for the entire film. Will it win an Oscar? Probably not, but I am glad I didn’t wait for video. I walked out thinking I didn’t waste my 12 bucks.
    Btw I loved Princess Diaries. Lol

  8. I actually thought the exact opposite of Bane. His voice really made the movie better for me. Fantastic movie, could rival The Avengers as the top movie of 2012.

  9. Under Rene’s leadership Argentina has achieved black women skin bleaching the highest representative coverage ratio in Avon with almost eight representatives for every thousand customers. So, let black women skin bleaching me be clear. Her speech was one of the best things[the slave traders] did for you was to drag your gross margins, the Synagis? The one thing you can do with a single press in the Music menu, but one may give a hint in the form of an ointment was safe and effective alternative to Botox.

    fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful price

    probably did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
    before.
