POSSIBLE ELECTION SPOILER ALERT:
From my extensive research watching previews and trailers, The Dark Knght Rises movie fits Republican Mitt Romney down to a 'T'. Was that what D.C. had in mind when making this in an election year? I hope not, but the overlapping plot points speak for themselves:
- Rich dude? Check!
- Rich father? Check!
- Took a break from public service? Check!
- Getting back into public service? Check!
- Attacks from Bane/Bain? Check!
Also, "The Dark Knight" is a phrase coined in the last movie (and comics) because Batman wasn't some popular, bright, shiny hero that the media and everybody else loved - but was probably the hero they needed.
Hello?! Which candidate is popular right now and which one is the 'dark horse' in this years campaign?
Even Bane as the bad guy tryin to take down the hero because he blames him for something or another! Seriously?
In real life, Mitt Romney has to take on the (false) attacks from Bain (Capital) that he was supposedly connected to investment firm when some dirty deals went down [LINK].
I don't like it when Hollywood gets political, cause these guys are actors, writers and producers of ...make-believe. What makes them experts on who I should vote for? I would rather make my decision after listening to non-partisan economists and business experts.
If Hollywood wants to vote for Republican Mitt Romney because they see him as some bad-ass, bullet-proof, sexy hovercar flying, hero, fine! But don't expect me to fall for their propoganda.
Not again, anyway...
