Movie: The Dark Knight Rises

I was thoroughly impressed by Anne Hathaway's performance in The Dark Knight Rises, during my birthday weekend. You probably all ready know the role that she plays, but I am surprised that the movie never mentioned her character's alter ego name. In other words, we see her normal given name, but that is all that we see, unless I missed it completely.

I will not describe any of her outfits or when they appear, because I do not want to give any spoilers, but they are so worth your time. I recommend it on DVD or Netflix or TV, where you can pause and watch in slow motion.

I think that they overdid her action scenes, because she does not strike me as a believable action star.

That being said, her looks and performance look good. In my opinion, she exudes a glamour that reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. She also displays a convincing performance, that is suitable to her character's struggles and desires.

The truth is that I find that all the characters in this film have a more down to earth aspect to them.

Regarding the overall story, I thought that it was pretty interesting. I do not know what the comic was like, so I cannot make a fair comparison. Do any of you read comics? If so, then how do you feel about it? Is the Dark Knight version of Batman consistent with the original comics?

Thank you for reading!


  1. Dark Night or Dark Knight? :D
