First, I hated that Batman got all "Spiderman 2" here. I just hate it when the superhero just give up and quit. ****, I want the hero to be heroic, not being human and depressed.
Next gripe. Catwoman IS NOT Catwoman. She's just a random catburglar but she's nothing like the iconic character.
Final gripe: This movie IS NOT a Batman movie. Take out batman and put ANY action hero that do the exact same things and the movie would have remained inchanged. This "Batman" is a very awesome action movie. It just dont feel AT ALL like a Batman movie.
Bonus gripe. Bane dont have his chemical that transform him into a big-ass mutant. Still that would not have worked in this world and Bane is awesome enough as he is.
One surprise. Everybody figure out that Batman is Bruce Wane. At last, some logic. Kudos for Batman to have faked his death at the end.
Another good surprise. That very competent policeman that have a major role in the movie.
Awesome action movie, but as a Batman movie, it dissapoint.
BTW, the first two Batman of this series were TRUE Batman movies. It was ABOUT Batman being Batman doing Batman things.
Sigh... Do you know about Garfield Minus Garfield?
This is what this movie felt for me. Batman Rise is Batman Minus Batman...
Oh well, I'm looking forward for the next reboot.
