The Dark Knight Rises

I was reminded of how poor Dark Knight Rises was when I read Wilfrid Wong's review of it. I had enjoyed most of Nolan's previous endeavours. My hopes were very high.

Sadly, the movie didn't meet expectations. It was ponderous and tedious with lots of logical inconsistencies and improbabilities. Yes, this is a costumed superhero movie, however, Nolan had previously added a strong dose of realism in the previous one, one would expect that the script would at least respect the audience's intelligence. With this one, there was no chance.

The villains were ridiculous, the plot premise was ridiculous as were much of the other aspects of the movie. Oh well.
