The acting came through the special effects quite well and it had a large element of veracity in the presentation. The darker nature of this Batman series brings out some apocalyptic fears that speak to our humanity. Pity that there is still the temptation to paint characters very starkly as black and white. Always, the answer for justice, is to kill bigger and with better equipment. Unfortunately, I think a lot of people still think in this way, when complicated problems arise.
The film itself is the third and final instalment in Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy. It's a very good - if somewhat overly long - movie, drawing on several comic book sources (especially "Knightfall" (1993) and "No Man's Land" (1999)). The film continues the saga established in "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" ... here, a few years have passed since the Joker was defeated and Two-Face was killed. Batman has not been seen in a long time, and Bruce Wayne lives as a recluse in the re-build Wayne mansion. Unfortunately, trouble is afoot! Talia al Ghul, daughter of Ra's al Ghul (played by Liam Neeson), now heads the League of Shadows and, with Bane as her henchman, she's decided to destroy Gotham City - and finish what her father started. Batman must do what he does best - figure out what's going on, draw on his physical skills and technology, and defeat the villains!
The movie has several sub-plots - concerning such characters as Catwoman, and police officer John Blake (who's shown, in the final moments, to be Robin) - and it does succeed in allowing space for in-depth characterisation. It's a movie with high production values, and a sophisticated storyline.Read more ›
Several of the players seemed to merely sleepwalk through their scenes, whilst the main villain was a typical pantomime type that should have stayed at home in the comics
Overall, a disappointment and one that I won't be viewing again.
The weakest of the three films, by far. The premise is on a par with The Dark Knight in terms of scope and scale, but the execution is much poorer. Whilst the plots of the previous two films could arguably stand up to critical scrutiny this one fails right from the get-go, from the atrociously incautious CIA agent to the remarkably flimsy plane. Later I noticed, without really intending to, two glaring production errors: Cat woman speaks when her lips are clearly not moving; and a henchman falls on his backside as though struck during a choreographed fight scene despite receiving not even a glance from an opponent.
All-in-all there seems to have been less effort put into this film than the prior two, and it shows. Pity. Maybe it was a little rushed?
