Re: How do we avoid the third act curse?
Obviously there are legitimate criticisms of The Dark Knight Rises, but no more than many other good movies. I have always seen the criticisms of the film as being overblown. The fact is that the movie was both a critical and financial success.
For me the best comparison for The Dark Knight Rises is Return of the Jedi.
Both films are coming off an excellent predecessor film in which is is nearly impossible to live up its expectations. And while they have their flaws, they are on par with or better than the first movie in the trilogy.
