It's crazy when you think of how much there always is to compare in terms of imagery between all the Batman movies (Adam West included). This is also another movie with Batman and Catwoman frolicking around Gotham in the snow like it was 20 years ago.
i cant believe i forgot about that one. Returns did have the snow/batman/catwoman shit. Damn
Shadow punches are now accompanied by shadow kicking
I'm glad he's striving to move away from shaky cam after all the years of complaining but I guess somebody forgot to tell Nolan that when you shoot action with clear geography the editing is NOT supposed to make the choreography look like it looks like when you're filming it. He took "realism" a little too far there lmao.
I'm seriously baffled by how obvious it is he doesn't even come close to connecting in almost every fight scene so far. The last time I saw 'hit detection' this bad was The Godfather, lol.
Lol what the hell?
That kick was painful to watch. Luckily in the film the shit will hopefully too fast to notice, but now I got this hit detection shit in the back of my mind. C'mon Nolan, the strikes in the other two actually looked pretty good (when you could see them pass the shakey cam), maybe they were always shit but the shakey cam covered it.
Roger Ebert's review is up. Since he's a total Nolan stan I was a bit surprised to see him give it 'only' a 3/4. Some juicy/discussion-worthy quotes (also, spoilers).
The film begins slowly with a murky plot and too many new characters, but builds to a sensational climax.It isn't very much fun, and it doesn't have very much Batman. [...] And although we see a good deal of Bruce Wayne, his alter-ego Batman makes only a few brief appearances before the all-out climax.He releases thousands of Gotham's criminals in a scenario resembling the storming of the Bastille. As they face off against most of the city police force in street warfare, Bane's goal seems to be the overthrow of the ruling classes. But this would prove little if his other plan (the nuclear annihilation of the city) succeeds.No attempt is made to account for Bane's funding and resources, and when it finally comes down to Bane and Batman going mano-a-mano during a street fight, it involves an anticlimactic fist-fight. He blows up the city's bridges and to top that lands a right hook on Batman's jaw?Full review:It lacks the near-perfection of "The Dark Knight" (2008), it needs more clarity and a better villain, but it's an honorable finale.
Fuck, I'm not gonna see that shit on Friday annymore. Im gonna b disappointed
