4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 30 Nov 2012
This review is from: The Dark Knight Rises (DVD + UV Copy) [2012] (DVD)
Wow this brilliant way of ending the trilogy makes me feel that this is just the beginning. I would call the same casting on and on for more adventure.

Bane is not my favourite character by far (really not interesting, just a tough guy) but all participate intensely and have a role and feed the story. The casting is incredible: Batman Begins + Inception + Anne Hathaway (she's such a complete and lovable actress and person)

I just got the 2 dvd collector edition in Switzerland yesterday.
I definitely recommend watching the bonus features, they explain a lot about the concept behind this movie and the connection with the beginning of the story.

An amazing production, screenplay, performance !

And yet:
The whole experience was so different than on big screen. "Duh" you might say and still... let me explain myself:

I recognized that some parts are only effective if you watched the film only once. This doesn't necessarily happen with other masterpieces I can watch on an on.

When I watched all the interesting bonus features on the second dvd, I started noticing that from many multiple shots (shots filmed from many angles at the same time) the choice of those shots used for the movie weren't the clearest, or the most astonishing. So may things are finally not so clearly seen in the movie. There were many other successful angles that could have been used more effectively.

Music soundtrack ? Hans Zimmer did a nice job but I would have preferred James Newton Howard.

The fights weren't that clever, too tough and bulky, not necessary, no intelligence around them, plain fist. Not my port of call.

Thank you Christopher Nolan for being clever enough to participate in the cinema industry and still deliver ART.

Definitely a realistic, surprising and enjoyable film

Thanks to all reviews and commentaries.
