Re: Best to watch the trilogy as Bond films, not Batman
This thread is just another way of saying that Nolan treated these movies as action films, not "comic book" films. Which is exactly why people fell in love with them in the first place. It was exhilarating to see such a beloved, legendary character placed on a platform where you could buy into the reality of what was happening a bit. It gave everything more weight. And they've become so iconic in their own right that they influenced the Bond franchise.
Makes me proud as a Bat-fan.
