This. Rises is really a personal story of redemption for Bruce Wayne framed around a sort of modern historical epic. I just love that.

With that said, I don't think it's very appropriate to compare the two films. They're different animals, despite having some similarities and being in the same overarching genre. There's no reason to say which one's better; they can be enjoyed just as much for different reasons. I thought Avengers was great fun.


You do not fear death.
You think this makes you strong. It makes you weak.
How can you move faster than possible,
fight longer than possible,
without the most powerful impulse of the spirit:
The fear of death.
