The Dark Knight Rises

By many standards the previous Batman movie The Dark Knight or "Batman-2008" was the best movie of all times, let alone the Batman series. Considering the competition, this was maybe not a huge achievement, but still. Are we then surprised that the sequel The Dark Knight Rises is a let-down? No, not really. But expected more out of Nolan, the director. The script and dialogue of the Batman-2008 was always, and I mean always (and I don't use underline for everything), kicking arses to the left and to the right. In this one, it just does not happen. Sorry if I spoiled the whole movie for you, but this essence is gone. Other things gone? The chemistry between the actors, for one. Batty-2008 was indeed filmed in a fictive futuristic city of Gotham with advanced technologies, materials and Morgan Freeman, but it still remained realistic. Somewhat. This one? Myaeh... Not so much. Cheap tricks such as last-moment-rescues, crying Alfred and everybody's-happy endings left me with a sour taste after the show. But it was inevitable. The joker is gone and the joke is on us ticket-buyers - and that it has 8.9 on IMDB? Gotta be kidding, yo...
