The Dark Knight Rises

Rated PG-13 164 min. 2012



While the third installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman series is high on pathos and allegory, it's also unwieldy and lacks the charisma, wonder and sense of discovery found in its forerunners. When it's hard to shake the notion that the villains' motives and backstory were partly derived from a middling James Bond entry like The World Is Not Enough, it becomes even dicier to divine import from the rest of the morass. It's entertaining and interesting, but it is not the grand, transformative spectacle that Nolan obviously intended. Many of its missteps are of its own making. But like its Caped Crusader, it also buckles from the demands heaped upon it by the 99 percent who have enjoyed and now justifiably come to expect success.
