Default Re: How do we avoid the third act curse?

Look at Die Hard 3, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Return of the King, Last Crusade. etc.

1. They don't reuse the same plot as the original.
2. The studios didn't screw around with the director and writers ideas.
3. They kept the same tone and style as the originals. I.E. no shark jumping.
4. The filmmakers listened to criticisms of the original films.
5. The action was consistent with the others.
6. None where rushed to meet a release date.

As far as I'm concerned Nolan is the kind of guy that would adhere to all of those (Except for 4, somebody get Bale some throat medication please).

A man has to be what he is, Reek. Can't break the mold. There's no living with what you've done. There's no going back. Right or wrong, it's a brand. A brand that sticks. Now you run on home to your mother... you tell her everything's alright. There are no more guns in the valley. RIP
