Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message
home a bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog.
An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

What’s up, I am a newbie here. I am sorry if this is not the right section for this post but I was looking forward some one here on hollywoodlife.com would be able to show me where I can find a stream of The Dark Knight Rises Online for free. Thanks

“Batman doesn’t have any powers. He’s a human being who is driven by determination to wipe out crime and has trained his body and mind to be at the peak of human perfection.
Batman really has nopowers to speak of, just a huge bank account to fund his gadgets, a vast intellect to help him sort his way out of any situation, as well as solve crimes, and an amazing physical regimen which helps him stay in shape and fight at the top of his game.”

FOR THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO IDEA OF WHO BATMAN IS. NOTE THIS BATMAN IS DIFFERENT TO THE ONE YOU WATCH ON CARTOON NETWORK ^^

This was the best film by far and i feel i need to put a rest to all these negative comments. firstly to those saying he can only fight in a vehicle and he only had 3 fights etc. NOTE THAT in this movie batman is old, NOTE that batman is NOT A SUPERHERO HE HAS NO SPECIAL WIMP LIGHTENING POWERS, he is the more realistic gadget protector thats why he has the latest gadgets etc to help him. Also to the FOOL saying he fights in the day? you silly fool you think he has a decision as to what time of day he fights in? criminals attack at any time of day and if the city is threatened to blow up then he has to. IF your really a batman fan AND if you understood the film plus the morals behind it, YOU Would understand that batman not only relies alot on his physique and muscle but on his sheer willpower and spirit as well as this he relies alot on lucius fox and catwomen as well as alfred. NOTE THAT even in the comments BANE IS ONE OF BATMANS TOUGHEST ENEMIES! ALOT OF THE negative comments are from people that surely are not true batman fans. My comments are not biased and are based on true facts. It was definately an awesome ending to the triologies with amazing links between the 3 and i feel it could not have been done better, GRATZ NOLAN. 10/10.

Come on are you people serious!?!? I think this was the best of the three, good plot, it tied in with the other two, twist ending and a semmingly impossible conflict. 5/5stars

Absolutely agree — this one was by far the best of three. Hands down.

The dark knight rises is a almost 3 hour crime drama with a speical guest apperance by batman. Its an ok movie but its no batman. The dark knight rises is by far the worst of the three. Save your money and torrent it later if you still want to watch it. Gets a 60 out of a 100

Bonnie! Do you really call yourself a movie critic? That has to be one of THE worst and most painfully drawn out movies I have ever had the misfortune of seeing! In spite of the fact that you thought it was surprising, it is actually totally and utterly predictable! Batman has become this pathetic wimp who is not a superhero unless he is in/on a vehicle! He gets completely dominated in the fight scenes and you can pick up straight away, before the final epic battle begins, that catwoman is gonna come to his rescue!! What a terrible way to end of an otherwise amazing series! Nolan’s worst film by far!!

Actually Checkers, Bonnie knows what she’s talking about. You on the other hand, are so blinded and clueless about the entire movie itself. The Dark Knight Rises was one of the best summer movies in 2012, along with The Amazing Spider-Man and The Avengers. The fights were intense and brutal, and no Batman is not a wimp. Just because he doesn’t have any super powers, that doesn’t consider him a wimp. Have you ever watched the entire movie or are you trolling, and looking through what you want to see? Sure Batman was completely out of shape after 8 years begin Batman again, with a messed up leg is really tough to deal with especially dealing with Bane. One of his toughest foes ever, and Bane has completely beaten him so badly in the first fight. In the second fight, are you really way off? Even though Bane was still beating Batman for a short period of time, until Batman broke his mask with a blade on his shoulder. After Bruce Wayne made it out of Bane’s prison that he’s been sitting in there for who knows how long it’s been, he was definitely in a lot better shape than he was before. I thought the ending was going to be very disappointing because Batman did save the city, but everyone thought he was dead after that explosion in “The Bat”. However, Bruce Wayne who did indeed fixed the bat six months ago prior for a software patch when Mr.Fox asked what he could have done to fix it. Turns out that Alfred looked across the table from the same restaurant, and he surprisingly it was Bruce Wayne. To me, The Dark Knight Rises was one of the best films in the Batman Trilogy, not as good as The Dark Knight.

LATEST BATMAN movie SUCKS…… how come Batman could come out and fight in the day time? he has only 3 fights… the CATWOMAN is the best and Bayne has a lot of filming than Batman. i think this latest Batman doesnt have enough budget… A lot of people are disappointed……. Its a waste of money…..

Excellent movie! Easily better than The Dark Knight, which I found to be a bit of a disappointment. And, one of the best endings in cinematic history. A+ Thanks Mr. Nolan for a great ending to a fine trilogy.

Heath Ledger was a better villain for me. But this was a piece of work man. I dont know how people could say Spiderman was better. Spiderman sucked! But this movie was a masterpiece man. Loved it?

Very disappointed! 3hrs long with a very tiring soundtrack, using what seems to be a common template for recent films. It seems that the majority of reviews by trusted sources are right, it is only a two star rating, probably due to its length, acting, and pacing issues which make it look like an extended advert! It looks like they had issues towards the end of releasing, as it seems rushed and extremely choppy, and there is enough material in there for about four more films.
The dark knight was a much better film, hopefully someone else can do a better job next time!

Yes I have to agree with paul there wasn’t a lot of batman in the movie and many when they see it, will feel that its more of a gotham movie than a batman movie. But honestly I feel that was the point. The last movie left with batman fleeing from the police and being public enemy number one and then this movie opening up with him suppposed killing harvery and being a menace, of course he’s going to remain from being seen. Its about him struggling form his deep darkness and rising to what he was, what he symbolically stood for and the trials that accompany his journey to being a hero. I personally loved the movie and they psychotic portray of Bane and the unforgetable twist at the end. Its def a go see and won’t be disappointing

This was simply a bad film… The editing and pace was all wrong with certain scenes chopped up to lose their impact and other scenes like the jail was overplayed and just came off cheesy. Then you combine this with Bane who just doesn’t work outside of a comic as no acting can be done through the mask. But perhaps the biggest let down was there was no growth of the characters to engage you to care what was going on (again due to I suspect bad editing) …. leaving it all a bit dull and uninspiring (and without a lot of BatMan even making an appearance)… On leaving a full cinema I found it interesting that so many snippets of discussion leaving disliked the film finding it a bit cheesy and dull..It does make me wonder how much media hype and great reviews is done by reviewers to ensure magazines get their advertising?

It’s not as good as The Dark Knight. Not even close without the Joker. And actually I am not sure it is the best movie of the summer. I enjoyed it, but it has some issues.
