Mel’s 5 Second Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Was quite disappointed by this, especially seeing how good The Dark Knight was. I was bored out of my skull for the first half or so of the film. The acting was excellent, as I expected with so many strong actors, but man, was it dull. The second half picked up and was more enjoyable, but I was so bored that I almost didn’t make it there at all. And aside from the boringness, I dunno, but was I the only one who thought that this story was just… too much? It just seemed so overly convoluted, even for a Batman film. But still, I’ll give it a 6.5/10 for the effort that all the actors obviously gave.

The film is currently streaming on Netflix, if you care to try it out.
