I do like the fact that Batman made a positive difference, but I think TDK is the best film in the trilogy because of how compelling it is. When examining a hero like Batman you have to adress the fact that with the style of war he wages on crime there will be benefits as well as casualties. A Gotham where a Batman WAS needed and is not needed anymore is a lot more safe than a Gotham that will need the legacy passed down from one Batman to the next
