Ashdoc's movie review---The dark knight rises

Post by ashdoc on Mon Jul 30, 2012 8:57 am

I hadn't seen a single batman movie before this one and this is my first watch of any batman movie . Furthermore , I saw this movie several days ago but something cropped up and I had to go out of town , so I could not write the review . Now writing a good review requires it to be written immediately after seeing the movie , but writing as I am after several days of seeing the movie , I cannot remember all parts of the movie . So please bear with me......

Ashdoc's review----

Gotham city---a city of 1.2 million people , one of the largest in America.....

Its a city whose protector has gone into hibernation after taking the fall for a crime committed by someone else---and who else could the protector be but the batman , for only he could have the moral courage for such an act of sacrifice.....
He has gone into self imposed hibernation because the city's enemies have been vanquished , or so he thinks.....

But does the battle between good and evil ever end ??

Or more correctly , does mans greed for earning more moolah by churning out more and more batman movies ever end ?? No....

So an exmember of the league of shadows , a mountain of a man called Bale with a strange mask over his face and an even stranger voice is the new enemy to menace Gotham city.....

And such is his power that even the Batman cannot face him in his encounters with him---he is capable of beating the shiit out of the Batman literally.....
Maybe the reason for this is the fact that as time progresses , the Batman has got older and weaker and retired anyway.....

But one thing is sure , the batman is still as handsome as before---a fact that is revealed when he eventually agrees to come back into action and shaves his beard and gives up his stoop to save his beloved city.....

And to aid him in his mission is new technology---a brand new batmobile that is sleekly capable of taking him out of dangerous situations and places.....

But batmobile or not , is he capable of taking on Bale and the revolution that Bale is about to foment in Gotham city ?? A revolution that is based on taking control of the city's power source which is a nuclear reactor , converting it into a nuclear bomb and blackmailing the United States government into surrendering control of Gotham city to Bale and his colleagues on pain of exploding the nuclear bomb....
The sad answer is that the Batman is at least not physically capable of facing Bale and is royally defeated and thrown into a remote dungeon ( in meherangarh in India's Rajasthan !! ) by Bale to watch helplessly as Bale goes about the destruction of Gotham city.....

But in this dungeon he meets other prisoners who tell him the life story of Bale and above all give him the moral courage ( which is greater than physical courage ) to triumph over all odds including Bale.....

And so the Batman escapes from his dungeon to face the mighty odds.....

And to win over the mighty odds he trusts two women---one is a cat burglar who is out to erase her criminal record but repeatedly lets him down in tricky and difficult situations , and the other is a woman whom he comes to love.....
Both are equally delectable , but can two swords fit in one holster ?? Can a man trust two equally beautiful women at a time ?? The answer is no.....
Out of the two , only one is going to withstand the test of time and above all the test of true love....

So who is the woman in true love ?? Go and watch the movie for that.....

For as the Batman seemingly prepares to pay the ultimate price of giving up his life ( or does he ?? ) for saving the city he loves so much , I was looking up to the screen with some satisfaction---satisfaction of having had a good outing to the theater ; a satisfaction made satisfying by the fact that the director weaves an emotional core over all his characters including the forbidding Bale , and a satisfaction made all the more satisfying by having watched some good action mixed with does of emotion....

But the director disappoints in the end , as he tries to make keep characters alive for another Batman movie and presumably more moolah---well that how the industry operates....

Verdict---good .

"Good"? the movie elevates comic books to a level they've never been taken before. it's a landmark movie that every other action movie will be measured against. just "Good"?

also, why am I reading a review by someone that misspells bane as bale? bane is the only comic book villain that can stand up to the joker and you misspell his name?

also, that two swords fitting in one holster (?!) is a totally wrong analogy in this case. since two women are involved, it should be phrased as can one sword fill two scabbards, to be analogically and anatomically correct.

you wrote a 78 line review and was in a rush so misspelt bane? not buying it. think you were too busy looking for a rain song duet number between "handsome" batman and cat woman and not paying attention to what was going on in the movie

what i meant was that i wrote the review after i came back from my out of town journey . i had seen the movie before the journey but could not find time to write it at that time . by the time i wrote the review a lot of other things had happened in my life and i could not remember some things of the movie .

Moral of the story:

About that whole no guns thing... Turns out I'm not as committed to it as you are.
