The Dark Knight Rises brought Christopher Nolan/Batman fans back to the theater giving it a solid number one spot grossing $160.9M. Our LIH family continue to extend our appreciation to all those affected by the Colorado shooting who became superheroes in their own right that night. Ice Age slipped to #2 ($20.4M) with The Amazing Spider-Man in #3 ($10.9M). Let’s see how TDKR did and if it was worth the money!
Note: We only review films in wide release.
The Dark Knight Rises—PG-13 What’s the buzz? “The Dark Knight Rises is a majestic, gorgeous, brutal, and richly satisfying epic.” says Richard Roeper. “This is a superhero movie in which the superhero has no magical powers…a superhero movie in which the action, even at its most preposterous, is more grounded in reality than in any other comic book movie.” Fans couldn’t be more pleased with the final installment, although, some were disappointed by the ending.
So is it worth the money? Yes! Yes! A thousand times YES!!!
