While 'the Dark Knight Rises' excels in being better than other films of its genre, the movie falters amongst Nolan's best works. The overstuffed plot moves too quickly to offer viewers a genuine feeling for the city, the people, and, more importantly, the movie. With the fast paced story, the movie quickly, and epically, escalates to an ending which will leave you immensely satisfied. The film has its vital flaws, but overall, 'the Dark Knight Rises' is a tremendous finish to an outstanding trilogy.
