Batman the dark knight rises

I’ve been a fan of the previous two outings in this trilogy of Batman films and I’ve been looking forward to seeing what Christopher Nolan would do to bring it to a satisfying conclusion. I wasn’t disappointed. The Dark Knight Rises is a great mixture of character development and stirring action. Bruce Wayne is struggling with his identity and when Batman does finally return there is a real sense of excitement. Perhaps I’m predisposed to look for satisfying deliverance models but it is really moving to watch a hero who is willing to give it all for the people he loves. Parallels to Jesus are obvious (John 10:11).

Bane is an engaging baddy although probably not as disturbing as Heath Ledger’s Joker.

I don’t want to spoil the film for those who want to see it by saying more but I would certainly recommend the IMAX experience if you are going. If you liked Batman Begins and The Dark Knight you will enjoy this one.
