sad to say seen better batman movies this oneBy Lombardy (5 reviews) , 29 Apr 2013A grinding relentless self absorbed over-long dark humourless boring movie. We had very little idea of hte story line and after the second hour was up we fell asleep on the sofa
He's back and stronger"By a customer , 28 Apr 2013A strong, gripping film that proves good can prevail over evil. Batman is stretched to his limit and is nearly broken in this emotionally charged follow up to the The Dark Knight. At every turn he seems thwarted and we see him at his lowest ebb. He still has allies though, including a new young police officer who teams up with Commissioner Gordon. The baddie terrorist, Bane, decides to place a nuclear bomb in the heart of Gotham City and ironically uses equipment, already put in place by Bruce Wayne for another purpose, to make his bomb work! The story is of course more complex than this and it makes thrilling viewing.
Batman's greatest challenge doesn't disappointBy Alan51 (10 reviews) , 27 Apr 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideIf you like dark films you'll love this - it is DARK! As with the other movies in the trilogy, the special effects are special, the battle between good and evil swings to and fro, it has shocks, surprises, wit and looks superb in HD. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers in that 2 hrs 44 mins is a long haul - I actually watched it on Blu Ray over 3 nights! The story could have been condensed to under 2 hrs, but perhaps it would have lost some of its dark mood - an underlying feeling of dread, that Gotham was doomed and this time Batman would be powerless to prevent the seemingly inevitable apocalyptic ending which slowly built and built during the movie. Will the villain succeed or will Batman have to make a sacrifice beyond all others to save the day? The villain is deadly, ruthless, sinister and seemingly indestructible. He has to be Batman's most evil foe to date. A new ally emerges during the film which suggests, although this is the final film of the trilogy, there may be more spin off films to follow in the future. As quite often happens nowadays, the door has been left ajar in that respect. Look out for some new hi-tech gadgets - makes me wonder if Batman's producers and writers want to rival Bond from this perspective. All in all, well worth viewing, but be warned you need to set aside nearly 3 hours to watch it in one go, and this film takes darkness to a new level.
Great film!By Swiss84 (4 reviews) , 26 Apr 2013Great Film - Love Christian Bale! and Tom Hardy!!! If you liked all the other Batmans this one is for you!
In the for the long haul.By a customer , 25 Apr 2013This film tried too hard to be grown-up. Too long, too bleak, too serious. None of the dark humour of the graphic novels or even the previous Dark Knight films. Anne Hathaway did not convince as Catwoman. Michael Caine still cannot act.
