Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

The criticisms of the movie in this thread revolve almost exclusively around previous comics/etc with Batman:
The fans are simply upset that this Batman was portrayed differently than - insert batman franchise minutiae/psychological profile from a decades old batman version.

Considering that this movie will be far more widely known than minutiae from the comics/etc, these are not valid criticisms.

And such critics cannot seriously expect for the vast majority of viewers to share their emotional involvement with past batman incarnations - and their consequent butthurt.

Do back up your statement.

As for mine:
Almost all criticisms in this thread are based on 'Batman would not have given up because in - insert past work - he was depicted differently'; 'Batman should not have been thus because in past works he never would have been'; etc.
