I knew critics would be like this though... Some love it, and some say its "Not as good as TDK". I always thought Begins was a better film, and didn't really understand why TDK was such a "critical" success. So any negative or "okay" reviews, I'm not worried about.
Critics can say they needed a better villain than Bane. But a villain is mainly judged on the severity of their plan, which reflects their nature. Bane actually achieves his plan (blowing up the bridges, ruling the place with an iron grip). That sounds like a good villain to me. Anyway, that's how opinion goes, and I need to see the movie first.
Are there spoilers in Eberts review?
The constant references to how great TDK was in these reviews just makes me think it's even more overrated than I realized.
Tdk was more praised because the film actually had better all around acting...the action was better n the film felt larger on a grander scale
I'm surprised that a few members in here weren't expecting less Batman upon learning that Bruce gets locked up.
Will we still have to use spoiler tags after the midnight showing on Thursday night? I've got a lot of questions for everyone!
Begins had a better story IMO
I don't know about that. The acting has received quite a bit of praise in TDKR. The action seems to have been scaled up too, but we haven't seen the movie so...
YES! It's the most spoilerish I've read so far, definitely.
You can always go to any other thread filled with spoilers.
BB and TDK has the same amount of bat-time in the movies, and we didn't even see Batman until about an hour into BB. So I was expecting the same, if not more, especially with how much longer the film is.
My favourite part of the whole trilogy is the first hour of BB.
Nolan and Bale have managed to make Bruce Wayne so much more interesting to me than "Batman". "Batman" is cool. Bruce Wayne is an epic character with an epic journey (part of the reason why I love the 8 year gap, if start adding all these different adventures, challenges, fights, enemies to it little by little you cheapen the effect of everything, imo )
The same thing happened with TDKR. Better acting, bigger action, huge scale!
Well, some people may not be seeing it till late Friday, Sat, or Sun, so probably yes.
Tdk had a better blend of character n showed what nolan can do with multiple characters...i like it because it has a bit of everything..
Probably just have to stay in the spoiler thread. Heh, I think you can go there now.
I would be interested to go to a parallel universe where Heath Ledger was still alive and see where the TDK hype and adulation stands. Don't get me wrong I absolutely LOVE Ledger's Joker. He's my #2 Joker of all time (Mark Hammil gets #1 for obvious reasons). But I can't help, but think his passing in some way added to the acclaim that role gets. I'm probably waaayyy off base here, but that's just my two cents.
Probably the major factor for it, although with a longer running time and it being the end of the trilogy, I'm just hoping it isn't drastically less.
Good im glad
What are the metacritic rating for Micheal phillips ( 2.5/4), roger ebert (3/4) ?
I hope it stays above 80.
Can someone post his review without the spoilers, please?
Roger Ebert rated Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter 3/4 and he has now rated TDKR 3/4. Sorry Mr. Ebert i think you are slipping. TDKR and Vampire Hunter on the same level. Nope.
