Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
Good movie, maybe even great, but with each film in the trilogy (I went to a marathon showing) I find it got further and further away from being a Batman story and instead became the story Nolan wanted to tell wrapped in Batman packaging. I'm okay with that though, because I still enjoyed the hell out of it. Like the second movie there are some flaws in the editing, and certainly in the clarity of the dialogue, but they are easy to overlook when taken as part of the whole.
