Yesterday, I got up bright and early to go to the first screening of “The Dark Knight Rises“, I have been in love with Batman since I was a kid. I’m talking about the days when it would come on Channel 50 (WPWR) here in Chicago! Anyone remember the very first series when the sound effects words would show on the screen (Pow, Bam)? That’s how long I’ve been watching Batman! Between Batman, Robin, Catwoman, The Joker and the rest of the crew, this series will always be near and dear to my heart! So imagine my excitement when I heard there was going to be a Dark Knight Rises…
The Dark Knight Rises focused on Bain, while I won’t spoil the movie for you, I will say there are truly some twists and turns that you didn’t see coming! For the most part, I feel The Dark Knight Rises was very well planned out although I felt like Catwoman could’ve played a bigger role! What Catwoman lacked in storyline, I definitely felt was made up with action in this movie. I always feel myself waiting for the action to hit; Bane and Batman definitely didn’t disappoint! While Dark Knight Rises wasn’t better than The Dark Knight, it was easily one of the best films I’ve seen in 2012 thus far!
If this cult classic was one of your favorites growing up you should definitely go see it, you will love the storyline!
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars!
On a sadder note RIP to those who lost their lives in the Colorado shooting!
