Re: Updated Rating for The Dark Knight Rises
I felt it was a 9 when I first saw it, and I'm still at a 9 now. Truth be told I've enjoyed it more and more upon re-viewings, but I do still feel like an extra 15 minutes or so could have helped flesh out a few things more. That said, I think the story Nolan was able to tell in 2:45 was truly remarkable and there is so much that I adore about the film that attempting to score it becomes somewhat arbitrary for me. Each film in the trilogy has its flaws, but collectively it's a 10/10 saga for me. Greater than the sum of its parts.
