"The Dark Knight Rises" PROLOGUE - some thoughts
 

 

Christopher Nolan's "Batman" films have, for better or worse, changed the landscape of popular culture, specifically that of film. Here is a mainstream filmmaker making big budget blockbusters that are not just about theatrics... They're about characters, complicated emotions, and intense psychological examinations of why people obsess over things. Nolan also seeks to bring scope back to mainstream film, which is becoming more noticeably absent as time goes along.

And, after watching this prologue, he seems to have succeeded.

I cannot say much for the finished product, but I can say that from what I saw tonight at the Simons IMAX here in Boston, he is aiming big. He is going for it, and really trying to craft something special, and something daring. As for the prologue itself, it left me feeling the same way I felt when I saw the prologue for TDK back in 2007... That it was "cool".

I cannot tell you too much (except the viral memos that were leaked tie into this more than you expect). All I can tell you is that it involves planes, and it is an EXPERTLY staged action sequence that is exciting. Tom Hardy as Bane is an interesting choice. The way he is played here, he is SCARY. Big, imposing, and physically & mentally strong.

The biggest problem, however, is with Bane and his voice. Behind the mask, the voice sounds muffled, and I could barely understand ANY of what he said. What I did hear was two lines. And, that's just about it. These are things that can be fixed. Nolan has publicly stated that he isn't even deep into editing yet, so this is surely one of the things that will need to be done before its released.

Soon after the scene with planes is over, we are treated to a series of scenes that will be in the film. We see the Batplane chasing down a tumblr, Catwoman, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and (the most ominous shot) Bane hold the broken Batman mask walking....

This has a stunning sense of finality to it, and what we have here is the conclusion to a trilogy that has laid the groundwork for what good comic book based movies should be. Lets hope that the final product will be worthy of the daunting anticipation that it is building up.

You can see the prologue before certain IMAX playings of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" this friday.

I thought Bane's creepy/weird voice was perfect!

But sadly I as well couldn't hear what he was saying lol. Then again I was hearing it from a video that leaked online so yea...The prologue was great & I really can't wait to see this movie.

I watched it in a giant IMAX theater, and the speakers are LOUD. So, that may have something to do with it.

The scale of this film is so massive. The montage at end was also epic. The Batwing looks incredible. The theatrical trailer will be out later this week.

Bane's theme is fu*king amazing especially when that chant fades in.

Omega you're right about the voice. I don't like it but it'll grow on me just like with Bale's Batman voice. My anticipation went up a bit but its not all the way there. The Bane chant is dope though.

If you can make two, then why can't Omega make a third, fu*k boy? At least he's contributing something of his own and not copying and pasting.

So the bottom of the screen is cut off in the version I saw, but does the one dude stay on the plane and die for Bane or some sh*t?
