So as I mentioned yesterday, last night I went to see the third Batman movie. I thought it was very good, at least in terms of film making goes–even though it is pretty long, I never really felt that it was being drawn out. Some of the plot points seemed a bit rushed, actually, and I could have used a tad more detail on what went on since the last one.
I quite liked Bane as a villain, and though much has been made about his voice I didn’t think it was unintelligible, except for the places where the music was playing and couldn’t hear anyone. Still a very dark film, though not as crushingly as the last one–mostly because of the ending, which wraps everything up very well but also leaves an opening or two for future films if they want (i.e., if the new Superman movie bombs like they seem to do).
In terms of this years movies, the Avengers is still my favorite, but then, I’m more into the lighthearted stuff rather than the dark drama-y stuff anyway, so it’s just a matter of taste.
If you have seen the first two Batmans, you owe it to yourself to watch this one, and more importantly, if you enjoyed the first two you will enjoy this one as well.
