The Dark Knight Rises- FFR (Warning: Restaurant Post)

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)- Christopher Nolan

Verdict: Watch it!

Albert Camus once said that the most important philosophical question was the question of suicide. Of course, we all know what the second most important question is. Yes, The Dark Knight Rises is a good movie and a solid end to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but it has some problems.

None of those problems have to do with the casting or the choice of villain(s) though—these are actually the biggest highlights. The problem comes down to some of the film’s execution and maybe the even some of the director’s intentions (though I’m a little afraid to say that last part online). In my mind, The Dark Knight Rises ultimately tries to do too much, and there are a handful of times where that really shows.

Again, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad movie. I actually liked it a lot—in some important ways more than the previous two films. But in some important ways, I liked it less. Decide for yourself. Watch it!

QOL: human, meaning and truth, beauty, religion/irreligion
