O que se diz lá fora sobre THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, de Christopher Nolan:
«The film begins slowly with a murky plot and too many new characters, but builds to a sensational climax.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«While THE DARK KNIGHT RISES raises the dramatic stakes considerably, at least in terms of its potential body count, it doesn't have its predecessor's breathless sense of menace or its demonic showmanship, and with the exception of one audacious sleight-of-hand twist, the story can at times seem more complicated than intricate.»
Justin Chang, Variety.
«Believable and preposterous, effective as a closing chapter and somewhat of a letdown if only because Mr. Nolan, who continues to refine his cinematic technique, hasn't surmounted THE DARK KNIGHT or coaxed forth another performance as mesmerizingly vital as Heath Ledger's Joker in that film.»
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
«Makes everything in the rival Marvel universe look thoroughly silly and childish. Entirely enveloping and at times unnerving in a relevant way one would never have imagined, as a cohesive whole this ranks as the best of Nolan's trio, even if it lacks - how could it not? - an element as unique as Heath Ledger's immortal turn in THE DARK KNIGHT. It's a blockbuster by any standard.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
«THE DARK KNIGHT RISES may be a hammy, portentous affair but Nolan directs it with aplomb. He takes these cod-heroic, costumed elements and whisks them into a tale of heavy-metal fury, full of pain and toil, surging uphill, across the flyovers, in search of a climax.»
