Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Christopher Nolan‘s conclusion to the epic Batman trilogy is finally here. The Dark Knight Rises is that very rare film that manages to maintain (if not pass) the quality of its predecessors. Is it as memorable as The Dark Knight? Yes and no, which works in the film’s favor. The Dark Knight Rises is a different film with different motives and a more complex agenda. It almost succeeds in being the perfect comic book movie, but the sluggish first act, mixed with some obvious and unneeded pushy political subtext makes The Dark Knight Rises a near-perfect experience that fails to surpass the hype of The Dark Knight, but excels in becoming the better of the two, because of its grand finale that will stick with you forever."
