Once again, I invoke the parking lot rule. If I go to the first show before noon on a weekday and the parking lot is nearly full, then "The Dark Knight Rises" is a flat out, pedal to the metal hit.
There is enough story and action for four movies, in this one saga. There is no major flaw - the villains are villainous and the heroes are heroic. The women are lovely and
dangerous and that is a good thing. The actors should be saluted for their
work this production, they were top shelf.
Director Christopher Nolan should be praised for getting the last ounce of energy out of every scene.
I didn't know 165 minutes could pass by so quickly.
Stay in your seat until the very end, hints are given for the next Batman saga.
