I got to see a special early screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” today. And let me tell you, watching a Chris Nolan Batman movie while having access to free booze is a pretty heady experience.
The short version is, it’s an excellent conclusion to the trilogy (assuming it’s in fact an ending), full of the gritty, character-driven fisticuffs and high-tech Bondian toys we’ve come to expect from the franchise. I’d give it a solid B+ or A-, not as triumphant an artistic achievement as the Heath Ledger edition but still excellent.
I don’t want to spoil it with any details, so I’ll just leave it at that. It’s a good, solid, entertaining Hollywood action movie starring Batman. You should go see it! (As if you weren’t going to anyway, ha!)
