Epicism (i suppose the word doesnt exist...) cannot be measured , but in Rises there's an approach to the filmmaking that is absolutely colossal. Its makes me grin , because its such a fascinating aspect of these movies that its very opposite to the trends of todays big american movies. But at the same time , the story is very focused and contained in one character. Its a very introspective narrative , that is surrounded by an enormous space of action. That alone puts Rises in a very special place . In this aspect , the other two previous movies don't hold a candle to it.
