View: The Dark Knight Rises Mixed Reviews from Critics
Checkout some of the mixed reviews that The Dark Knight Rises has received from these film critics. I know that the movie has been receiving some awesome reviews, but i like to focus on those mixed reviews on the film.
Time Out New York: Grand scale or no, this feels like a blockbuster on autopilot more often than not, curiously detached and self-importantly somber even by the director’s standards – and without the cerebral heft of his best work.
Slate: At over two hours and forty minutes long, with repeated scenes of bone-crunching violence and a maddeningly unrelenting percussive score by Hans Zimmer, The Dark Knight Rises is something of an ordeal to sit through.
San Francisco Chronicle: Moments are stretched. Every recollection must be illustrated by a flashback. Character motivations shift on a dime, and if you understand even half of what’s going on – not generally, but specifically – you’ll be doing better than most.
