The Dark Knight is the shining example of how to make a great comic book adaption. The Dark Knight Rises knew it couldn't outmatch its predecessor, so it went for being much more epic than dark. The Dark Knight Rises is great, but The Dark Knight is just brilliant

How many here agree that batman begins was better than The Dark Knight Rises?...The Dark Knight is a different class altogether..
Apr 7 - 12:55 PM
I would say dark knight rises has the slight edge, but not a huge edge.

Too many plot holes on The Dark Knight Rises for me. I liked the movie but The Dark Knight was simply so much more. I watched this movie eight times in theaters ad each time it felt refreshing to me.

Yeah I like Batman Begins more than Rises. Just seems like a better movie.

I have them side by side in my top favorite movies ever, with TDK having the slight edge due to Ledger's Joker.

it's not even close. The dark knight rises was good, but the dark knight was a lot better.

TDKR wasn't as great IMO. There was no direct powerful message in TDKR, massive plotholes, and an unnecessary plot twist along with a misplaced end for (redacted). The movie also suffered from AWFUL pacing in the beginning after the police and batman chase scene. You can't just have the biggest chase scene your eyes have ever seen (there might have been action sequences with Selina, I don't exactly remember) transfer into an eerily quiet conversation with Alfred and Bruce.

I have to agree.

Dark Knight is'THE' best superhero movie ever. And i have a question , can somebody anser?
why did talia and especially bane were willing to die for the sake of destroying the city. if it was revenge, why should bane feel it. he was already excommunicated by Ra -za-.... u know who? Bane already tells that he came to full-fill Ra's destiny, but city is already clean. then why all this .......... i really didn't get the sense of all this.
but still it is a good movie

Plot holes... Plot holes everywhere

The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises both succeed on so many levels. TDK had the advantage of being the second movie. It can start by going almost anywhere and it can end anywhere. TDKR had to could start where TDK left off, and give a satisfying ending, while still telling an exciting story. TDK is better in a lot of places. However, the reason why I like TDKR more is because it took Batman Begins and TDK, two completely different movies as far as mood and tone, and made them both completely relevant in the final chapter. There are so many ways the TDKR connects to its predecessors:
--When Batman told Gordon that he is Bruce Wayne.
--Talia quoting her father.
--Bane officially destroying Harvey Dent's reputation.
--Batman still shaken by the events of TDK.
The list goes on and on.
P.S. Why do people keep calling Bane a henchmen? Sure. He was doing things for Talia, but he hated Gotham and Batman as much as she did because of how her father's death made her feel.
Also, when Talia said, "Don't kill him. I want him to feel the heat, feel the fire of twelve million souls you failed," Bane was about to kill Batman after she left, disregarding what she asked.

I have to agree. On Facebook, people voted which movie of the trilogy is their favorite and the majority (including me) voted for The Dark Knight. The Dark Knight Rises is #2 and Batman Begins is #3.

The Dark Knight is much better than Rises on pretty much everything. Rises was still a good movie though.

The Dark Knight is the best of the triology

I prefer The Dark Knight. My reasons are that Heath Ledger's joker was amazing and Tom Hardy as Bane was a good villian, but nowhere near as good as Heath Ledger. The acting in The Dark Knight was better too. Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Christian Bale (and Heath Ledger, obviously), were all amazing in that film. The scope of The Dark Knight was bigger and larger. It's almost like comparing to the original Star Wars trilogy. The Dark Knight is like The Empire Strikes Back and The Dark Knight Rises is like Return of the Jedi. (Not to compare greatness to each trilogy, original Star Wars trilogy is untouchable).

Very good analogy except for me I'd place TDKR with Episode III instead.
Apr 17 - 08:08 PM
Both are equaly great. The Dark Knight focused on the real character of Batman and how his everyday routine of solving crime in Gotham is done and how his life is changed by a tragic event, while the Dark Knight Rises focused on how he recovered from the events of The Dark Knight and how the Batman finally came to a well done end.

Dark knight rises was simply trying to do too much at once. Bane had great potential as a villain, until we found out he was simply a henchman and wanted to do nothing else but blow up a city... This movie, similar to it's protaginist, struggles to stand up early and continues to fall throughout the entire film, unlike The Dark Knight which hooked you from the start.
I guess most of my disapointment with the third film was its failure to live up to the second. Nolan showed real genius in The Dark Knight, DKR looked like something Michael Bay would produce (which isn't meant as a slight towards Bay since that is his movie style and it works for him but I expected more from Nolan)
Dec 24 - 07:19 PM
DKR isn't nearly as good as DK, but believe me, That movie is beyond Michael Bay abilities.
Jan 9 - 10:25 AM
Haha yeah Michael Bay lol...gotta say I wasn't a fan of DKR either (watched it 2x, hoping to get drawn in) but it wasn't THAT BAD lol.
