The Dark Knight Rises

Before this review begins, I’d like to just wish everyone affected by the attack in Colorado the very best. I really have no words to express how horrible that was, especially when you read stories like that of Jessica Ghawi’s, who survived a shooting in Canada only for this to happen. . Back to the more mundane of the film

Robert Downey Jr. …. Harry Lockhart Val Kilmer …. Gay Perry Michelle Monaghan …. Harmony Faith Lane I’ve been vaguely wanting to see this film for a while now, but until last night I kept putting if off. Glad I’m finally went, because this is one of 2005’s best films.

A great film. Found it really funny, and despite the fact that it is a very Irish film there is not a bit of Oirishness to it. The plot revolves around two lads who work in the local warehouse type shop. One has no love life at all, the other has recently broken up with his girlfriend, and she is
