Dark Knight Rises Prologue Spoiler Free Review

I saw The Dark Knight Rises Prologue pre-screening and all I got was this AWESOME T-Shirt. (Oh, and to see the prologue before all y'all!)

I assume the design is supposed to represent Bane's mask. And along with the word 'End,' that's all it is. Nice and cryptic. No mention of Batman, or anything related to Batman, anywhere. Awesome.

As for the prologue: HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL! I won't give away any spoilers, but Bane's introduction is fierce and brutal, just like Bane himself. His voice was hard to understand as many have pointed out, but it is rather cool as his mask serves as more than just a means to cover his identity. The prologue cannot go without comparison to Joker's introduction/Bank Heist in The Dark Knight, and while the bank scene was better in my current opinion, both set up the characters in ways perfect for their respective villains' personalities, and Bane's intro couldn't have been handled better.

The events in the prologue are clearly leading up to something BIG (as fans of the comics and movies should already be aware.) But it also contained some very mysterious elements that leave even the most die-hard Bat-fan wondering 'what the hell just happened?'

The prologue ended with a montage of scenes from the movie, including Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in full mask/ears and black outfit. And although she looks for all intents and purposes like the sixties Catwomen were her only influence, (sorry Michelle Pfieffer or Jim Balent fans) it works for me and I cannot wait to see how her character plays into all the fun.

The Dark Knight Rises is going to be amazing. I cannot wait for July 28th 2012!
