First off, I’m glad I went to the The Dark Knight Rises on Friday AFTER the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I would hate for this film, with its strong anti-terrorist message, to suffer at the hands of a real-life terrorist. Secondly, the latest word is that, during the midnight showing on late Thursday/early Friday, it nearly outpaced The Avengers by 10 million to set a new record!

Okay, now on to the film. Here’s the official description:¬†Eight years on, a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham’s finest, and the Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.

From the beginning until the last sequence, this film is a worthy successor and satisfying finale to the Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman trilogy. There are so many interesting story lines taking place that my attention was gripped the entire way through. Even the “slower” character parts contributed to the movie in significant ways, so I’m sorry it’s now a part of history (in a good way)!
