As a stand alone film, this a movie that might be a hair too long and has a few audio problems, but is able to reach a level of greatness because of its final hour. As a final third of a tale that we’ve fallen in love with over the past eight years, it reaches an even higher heights, and is quite simply one of the best conclusions to a trilogy that we have witnessed. More emotional than the other two films, a tighter script than The Dark Knight, and a stronger final act than the Begins, The Dark Knight Rises is not only everything we want from a comic book movie, but everything that we want from a blockbuster in general. A tip-of-the-cap your way, Mr. Nolan.
