The film is gorgeous, sharply written, briskly paced despite an epic running time approaching three hours. The characters have depth and pathos, and the drama feels far richer than the usual hero-saving-the-world saga. The action reflects our own hard times as a masked terrorist lays siege to the masses in a sort of perverse Occupy Gotham City movement that pits the comic-book world’s 99 percenters against the rich and rapacious. Washington post
"But the word disappointment certainly won’t be featuring when my full review is cleared for posting next Tuesday. Consider the embargo respected (I’m such a good girl) and hang fire for July 19 when the film opens in NZ. It might pay to bear in mind that Nolan’s love of the IMAX camera crossed new frontiers this time around, and he shot an entire half the film using them. Aucklanders, I urge you to see The Dark Knight Rises at IMAX if you can." L.A. Junket
There’s no contest. The Dark Knight Rises, which opens next week, is the most hotly anticipated movie of the summer. And yes, it lives up to the hype. But what’s most astonishing is not Batman’s new flying machine that zooms around skyscraper canyons, or a flirty Anne Hathaway poured into a skin-tight catsuit and stiletto boots, or a muzzled terrorist who looks like an S&M wrestler on steroids. NY Times
Don’t want to give too much of it away, but I will say that The Dark Knight Rises is by far the most emotional of the Batman trilogy. Now I know what your thinking “that was same with spider-man 3 and it sucked!!” and it did - but TDKR builds from and excels the previous two movies in almost every way. Both the villains and the good guys are phenomenal, complex, enticing, and create memorable impressions that stick with you after the film finishes.
The cinematography was stunningly beautiful - and richly makes use of the IMAX format. If you see this film - don’t snub yourself- PLEASE pay the extra money and see it in IMAX, you won’t regret it. Roger Ebert
Hurry up Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll leave you with this. I have a TON of legit spoilers from the film. You can message me for some if you wish. So how about a very small spoiler?
In the trailers when the bridges are blown up. That is Bane. So no one can get in or out of Gotham.John 16:33

Nope naked peeps. Oh and a touch more from the NY Times review: Rest easy everyone, Chris Nolan has outdone himself and has created a masterpiece. This may go down as one of the best movies ever. Certainly in my top 10 for best movies I've ever seen. If this does not break the mold and win Best Picture, no comic book movie ever will.John 16:33
