I was planning to write my own review of The Dark Knight Rises, but I don’t think I can say it any better than Danny Bowes on Tor.com. Check out his blog post here:
I would like to say, though, that I think the Batman character is my favorite comic book turned movie character of all time. He is dark and brooding, handsome and complicated. The Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale franchise I think brought out the best of this character and this world. I’m not sure if this trilogy can be topped, and I hear there’s going to be a reboot in order to prepare for a Justice League movie that will compete with Marvel’s Avengers. Christopher Nolan has done so much with Batman, that I think this is the version of Batman that everyone loves and wants to see, so I think a reboot will have to stand up to a very loyal fan base. We have seen Batman go through some strange and unsuccessful interpretations in the past few years, movie wise, and I would hate to see it happen again post Nolan.
