The film comes at an apt time, when the 1 percent argument is powerfully present. When one has a lot, one can occasionally have a lot to lose. Conversely, it is rather foolish to think that so few can have so much without any form of social outcry. Enter Bane, Batman’s nemesis, played with utter brilliance and demonic panache by Tom Hardy. He too is one to watch, if only for his physical transformations (see Bronson and Rock N Rolla). It is hard to believe this GQ looking fellow could become the physical monster that is Bane. His performance is made all the more formidable when one considers his face is nearly completely covered except for his eyes, through which he conveys everthing from contempt to humor and enraged fury. Though some have mocked his “Conneryesque” accent/speech affecation, I would offer that is merely adds to his mystique and larger than life character. Nothing about this character is low key.Read more ›
Overall though, it's still sophisticated cinema and was a good effort. The best part of this film was John Blake. I found him to be the most genuine and likeable character of the trilogy. When he discovers the Batcave I was actually interested to see him become Robin.Read more ›
The Dark Knight Rises arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40 and 1.78 (Imax sequence). A few words about its predecessor The Dark Knight: Although its transfer earned top marks, however, contrast was raised to detail-quashing extremes, colour boosted, and severe edge halos littered the image. Thankfully, the transfer of the Dark Knight Rises did not suffer the same fate. Cinematographer Wally Pfister's wind-swept Gotham palette is rich, satisfying and gorgeous. Warm hues adorn the decadent homes of the city's elite, dusty desert colours blanket Bruce's stint in prison, and crisp white snow falls on a captive Gotham. Colours are positively radiant at times. Black levels are deep and inky. Detail is nothing short of extraordinary. Edges are sharp and natural and fine textures are well resolved and revealing (particularly during the film's IMAX sequences). (5/5)
The real showpiece of The Dark Knight Rises is its sternum-splitting, rib-cracking, ground-pounding DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. While it obviously isn't as thunderous or jaw-dropping as its IMAX counterpart, it still boasts remarkable power, prowess and presence. The opening hijack scene is worth the cost of admission alone. Hans Zimmer's score is simply enveloping and invigorating. Dialogue is clear. It is a great soundtrack to enhance the video. (5/5)
Christopher Nolan and his creative inner circle -- co-writer David S. Goyer, co-writer Jonathan Nolan, producing partner Emma Thomas, cinematographer Wally Pfister, composer Hans Zimmer, and many more -- finally concludes their Batman saga. A journey begun nearly a decade ago, Batman Begins marked a new, dare we say, serious era of the super hero film. Grounded and ultra-real.Read more ›
