Movie review: "The Dark Knight Rises"

First off, I'm not a huge fan of Christopher Nolan and his movies so this review may be a bit biased... With that said.. here's my take on "The Dark Knight Rises"...
Despite of the controversy that has surrounded this movie (i.e. the Aurora killings), I went and saw it with Iggy this past week.. I have to say I was a bit nervous in light of the recent events so I had a hard time focusing on the movie...
No matter how many Batman movies I watch, I just don't "get it".. the story is way too dark for me and so is the cinematography...
In this movie, I thought the story was way too complicated and so were the dialogues among the characters.. I even had a hard time understanding what some of the characters were saying, so that took a lot away from it...
Christian Bale was as charming as usual playing Batman but I thought his character was lacking humanity and he didn't click well with the rest of the cast...
The villain in the story (Bane) is almost "too mean" for no reason and the destruction of Gotham is almost out of proportion and completely unrealistic (I know the whole movie is unrealistic, but this was way too much)... I also have to add that the whole thing was way too violent for my taste...
All in all, I don't think I'm cut out for this type of movie and watching it was a total waste of my time.. I give it 2 out of 5 starts.. crappy in my book!
