Bryan Singer wasn't consistent after he made Usual Suspects. X-Men was average at best, X2 is a little overrated, and Valkyrie was terrible. I can't fully compare Inception to TDK in terms of plot or possible action sequences given Inception takes place in the human subconscious. But it just goes to show Nolan can make a bigger film, with a grander story, and get even greater performances out of actors.
