Dark Knight Rises IMAX Movie Review

We used some of Barry's Birthday voucher to see Dark Knight Rises in IMAX. The film is fantastic, although very, very dark in tone. Bane played by Hardy is an excellent baddy for this film, basically turning the whole of Gotham vigilante and disavowing all forms of authority, all the time threatening to blow up the entire city up if anyone tries to leave. Batman who is still in hiding from Dark Knight teams up with an unusual choice of a cat burglar. Catwoman played by Hathaway is superb, playing a witty and sarcastic character skilled at the art of deception. Batman basically comes out of retirement and with Catwoman sets about trying to free Gotham. There are a few twists and turns in the story, such as who is who's father/daughter and a few surprise characters reappear. IMAX was superb as usual, with the sound thundering and the Batplane and explosions rumbling right through your body. While the film is very good, is was just too dark and not as enjoyable as Avengers.
