A battle he may not be able to win!

Dark Knight Rises

Where do I begin! I may be a big BATMAN fan, in fact some people would say I'm bigger a fan than most ...

but I am certainly NO fan of these so called NOLAN films, to be honest I can't stand them ... although I do own all three of them and went to see the first two on openning night, but waited for all the stupid hype from the NOLANites before I went to see this one ... and as I thought, I was completely BORED of it and thought it was awful!

Oh how I can hear all the little NOLANites screaming at the top of their voices "what an idiot', "you don't know what your talking about" and everything else that they normally shout.

Well "Children", grab a chair and listen up ...

The film is WAY, WAY too long and that is coming from a guy that will watch any and every superhero film there is and I'm saying it about a BATMAN film ... Bale's portrayal of the Dark Knight, is yet again ghastly, mainly down to that stupid voice he uses when in the suit ... and as I've mentioned the suit let me say that the suit is my main MOAN of the film .... it's absoultley STUPID .... seriously guys take a look at most of the promotional shots of it in full vew and tell me from the waist down it doesn't look like a childrens 'ROMPER' suit or adults BEAR suit, it's the most stupid version of the BATMAN uniform to date.

What with the hard helmet he wears for a cowl and the cape that hangs off his back like a childrens cheap play costume, it's awful ... and anyone that says anything different is NOT a BATMAN fan, well not in my opinion anyways!

BATMAN's uniform is suposed to be something that instils terror to the underworld and yet to the ordinary everyday person on the street looks stately almost regal ... have any of the people on the NOLAN team actually seen or read a BATMAN comic, probably not! This uniform just looks like a big kids play suit ... again look at how he's drawn in the comics ... his head/cowl should be long and tall, elongated by the ears ... not short, FAT and stumpy like this with a little round chin pointing out. He should have a long SQUARE 'strong' jaw! I'm sorry to say, but just Like Keaton in Tim Burton's BATMAN.

This version of BATMAN, and YES I know it's the 'NOLAN version that is set in reality' well, heads up guys ... I have enough of so called reality and I want to go to the cinema to get away from it and immerse myself in a world that is devoid from all the woes of the day ... a reality where anything can exist and happen, that is the WHOLE point of a movie, unless it's a movie based on something real of cause and that is what a SUPERHERO comic is all about .... something that doesn't exist, but something we'd all like the chance of becoming!

Having said all this as in the previous two I did enjoy the characters of Alfred, Fox and Gordon, all played by fantastic actors. Hathaway as Catwoman, OK, nothing special in my opinion just OK and lastly Tom Hardy as BANE .... let's face it, this wan't BANE and should NEVER in my opinion even have been related to the Character BANE. If he's been called something else then yep, i'd have thought he was OK.

This was the last of the NOLAN films, THANK GOD, for that ....

Here's looking forward to whoever takes up the mantle next time ...

Burton are you listening!
