The press and industry types have just witnessed what’s said to be the best in Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” series, “Dark Knight Rises”. With words like “epic”, “Awesome” and “crying”, seems we’re all in for a treat when mid-month rolls around and Batman makes his final stand wearing the Christian Bale mask.

Suggesting the film has a rather beautiful conclude, many were said to have teared up as well as jumped to their feet and ripped with thunderous applause.

Tom McAuliffe says : “Just finished the screening of Dark Knight Rises…so much awesome…can’t wait to see it again. And again.” He later adds, “To your original question – there are things I criticize in every film, but this one measures high on many measures. There will be some surprises but not big ones, the beauty of the film is how well it tells the story. Tom Hardy was incredible as Bane, the storyline was fantastic. I think the Joker is far more iconic than Bane, with more memorable quotes, but this story was great, including Bane’s origin. Godfather 3 never happened. Xmen 3 & Spider-Man 3 were awful, this film was the perfect final chapter in the trilogy.”

SHH’s The Shape and Scoop say : “I think Bale gives his best performance as Batman and as Bruce Wayne in this one. He was terrific. And I especially loved his bat voice this time around…I really enjoyed [Neeson’s] part in the movie. It shows both his villain side and his fatherly figure to Bruce side… [Bane is] very intimidating, more so than Darth Vader ever was IMO.Because you can see his eyes..”

Manarchy Magazine says : “I would be remiss if I did not touch on what Nolan seems to have perfected – the villain. Bane is this installment’s chaos. He is played by Tom Hardy who is (yes, you guessed it) a supporting actor in Inception. The brilliance of the direction of these films is how lost you get in the villain’s soul. You lose track of the fact that an A-list actor is on screen. You are completely immersed in their portrayal as an ordered society’s tainted medicine. If you thought The Dark Knight introduced us to a dystopia, just wait until you watch this movie. We learn that it is not only Bruce Wayne and Batman that are rotting from the inside out, but an entire society. You will see urbanites at their most wretched, and in their prime. The chaos wrought unto Gotham City by the Joker was merely the beginning. And Nolan manages to convey this wild ride into 165 minutes of his best work.”

Zach Pincus says : “The Dark Knight Rises is not only easily the best Batman movie yet, but now one of my favorite movies I’ve ever seen. It was unbelievable!”

@cmfcknw says : “Critic after The Dark Knight Rises screening: “If this does not break the mold and win Best Picture, no comic book movie ever will.”

So there you have it, a masterpiece by the sounds!
