The Dark Knight Rises
Don’t know what all the fuss was about, seems like pretty decent entertainment to me. That’s what I thought two hours in. But the last long hour sees the darkness groan and splinter under the weight of it’s ambitions. It all felt like an honest attempt by team Nolan to bring a taste of true awesome into our lives, but arms filled with such a weighty bundle, much of the payload is dropped on the journey home. Sterling effort, but rather too much of it. Politically, it’s scrambled eggs.
