Hating Nolan doesn't immediately make someone a Pitchfork Media worshipping hipster show-off. Doesn't take a raving intellect or artsy, self indulgent pretentiousness to recognise the flaws in his stadium sized emo-comic book melodramas and overwrought Michael Mann-isms.
Batman Vs Mumbly Joe Hockey Mask Guy had some of the clunkiest, most forced dialogue this side of Shamalamdingdong. And alarm bells SHOULD start ringing the minute you see the names Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon Levitt and (HA!) Anne Hathaway in the SAME movie. You just know you're in for one seriously OVER THE TOP act-a-thon over the next two and a half painful hours.
Takes more than a few explosions, the odd hi-tech car chase and some little kid singing the National Anthem juxtaposed against anarchist rebellion in the streets to make a good comic book film, doesn't it?
But then again, people seem to lap this shit up so.......I'll just shut up and go back to being a "hipster".
