Though very fond of hollywood movies, and the occassional Gangs of Wasseypur and such, I didn’t know until thursday that The Dark Knight was saving Gotham again. My ignorance or failure to read The Gotham Times. But I decided to watch it first day since I was very impressed by The Dark Knight, especially The Joker(Heath Ledger : may his soul rest in peace. Acadamy award for the best supporting actor?? Hell, he stole the show!!) Anyway, I didn’t have company for the first day show(no fun watching such movies alone) so I had to watch yesterday night 10:30.
If I was impressed by The Dark Knight, I still search for a better word then mind blowing for The Dark Knight Rises. For me The Dark Knight was mostly about the Joker than Batman. The Dark Knight Rises is about everyone. It Batman, Alfred, Blake(the R…n, you will know when you see the movie), Bane, Seline, Fox, Gordon. And everyone played their part.
Except for the overly emphasized voice of Bane, there were no flaws.
The buildup to the story is very good. The action/effects are not overly done. Action sequences to watch out for : the introduction sequence and the football field sequence. And of course, the one thing which I love to watch while just about holding back the screams and cheers: His Bike!!
A very fast paced movie in which Batman has to wake up his inner strengths to overcome the greatest difficulties and take the final decisions to save Gotham.
Cristopher Nolan at his best. After the death of Heath Ledger, I thought he wouldn’t be able to fill up the vacuum. But The Dark Knight Rises is a totally different story.
My rating : 8/10
(Note : Try to get seats in the centre. When you seat on the sides, the neck hurts the next day)
