The Dark Knight Rises Movie Review
Who's your favourite James Bond?

It's an all-too-human failing that we're unable to encounter new experiences without comparing them to previous ones. The Dark Knight Rises - third (and everyone says final) film in director Christopher Nolan's Batman series - is action-packed, dark, dramatic, and consistently thrilling. It's everything comics fans and ordinary moviegoers want in a summer blockbuster, and especially this one.
Unfortunately, in the inevitable comparison with Nolan's brilliant previous effort, The Dark Knight, this new installment comes up short. While it's by no means a disappointment, the feeling of something lacking nags at the back of your mind throughout.
