Peter Travers Reviews The Dark Knight Rises
That witty, snappy old man is at it again, and the question is...did he like Nolan's latest film as much as he did with The Dark Knight? Hit the jump to see for yourself! (Minor Spoilers)
Here is a snippet of the full review:
"Audiences will be arguing forever about director Christopher Nolan's capper to his Batman trilogy. Want to bitch? Start with the reactionary politics and that franchisefeeder of an ending. But the sheer scope of Nolan's vision – with emotion and spectacle thundering across the screen – is staggering. The Dark Knight Rises is the King Daddy of summer movie epics. For nearly three hours, Nolan juggles themes that took root in 2005's Batman Begins and reached doomsday perfection in 2008's The Dark Knight....
....Bruce/Batman finds support in butler Alfred (Michael Caine) and Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), who builds all those wonderful bat gadgets. And beautiful philanthropist Miranda Tate (the remarkable Marion Cotillard) and idealistic young cop John Blake (a sensationally good Joseph Gordon- Levitt) spring surprises no one sees coming. I can't say more without spoilers, but a refresher in Batman Begins, the League of Shadows and evil genius Ra's al Ghul really helps. Otherwise, just let The Dark Knight Rises propel you into Nolan's carefully wrought maze. You may have to fight yourself out. But a movie this potent and provocative is well worth the battle."
