It may have just been the excitement of a new kind of hero rising from the revolutionary outlook of superhero films but I stand amazed. I feel that sometimes we analyze a film so much to the point of no return. We are inclined to compare and contrast and overwrite it with cons more than pros. To me, this trilogy is absolutely breath taking. I was on edge for every single one and paid to go see each of them at least 4 times in theaters (not mentioning how many times on DVD). Though The Dark Knight Rises was a little less impulsive than its opening, The Dark Knight, I believe it was only to coincide all three films in the most perfect way to satisfy its hype.
Movies are about entertainment, compelling and emotional satisfaction. They are to draw you in and help you leave reality behind for a few hours. They leave you thinking about them for days if not weeks. That is a good movie. And if we are still writing reviews, whether it is to criticize or boost its ego after months of its release, the this film did exactly what it was suppose to do.
