Well, the second watching of this film has left me in the mood to write another insignificant review. I also realizied that apparently I can't apply two different reviews and need to edit the old one in order to add my new thoughts and impressions. I'll do just that. Bear with me. I'm starting with a cliché conclusion. God do I love this movie. As much as the two previous ones. And I can't and won't pick the favorite because they only make the complete sense together. The obvious reason why I'm so drown to this particular franchise includes four factors, not even one of which is obsession with comic books. The thing is I'm a sucker for innovative gadgets, good fighting and witty dialogues. And inspiring stories. It's that simple. There were many phrases that I liked but I decided to pay a special attention just to a random couple of them. 'Anybody can be Batman'. Yes, if that 'anybody' also happens to be a billionaire with an ingenious scientist as an employee. 'Suffering builds the character'. With that I concur immensely. It's a rare kind of an action movie which is profound and thoughtful. Like one big complicated constructor, it includes many different pieces, sometimes even conflicting parts, but in the end they all fit together perfectly. One side of it is sombre and elegant, when the other is wild and agonizing. All movie is created by contrasts and feels accordingly like a vicious frost burn. I had great expectations about this film and surprisingly wasn't at all disappointed. Usually I don't like open endings with no chance whatsoever for the explaining continuation. Questions exist to be answered. But I was strangely content with how this exceptional trilogy was closed. The title is only suitable. It's about rising, awakening, new beginnings, not about the end - happy or otherwise. Frankly, I could have saved all those words and simply said instead that I'm a fan because I was impressed by the work that was made to be impressing. But I decided not to.
