I know this is an older post, but really?

TDKR literally takes its scope out of the "street level" scope. When the military general says, "Get the president on the phone," it is officially out of the normal realm for Batman. Bane's plan of holding Gotham hostage for five months and leading a phony revolution that descends all of society into a chaotic rumble, culminating in an (unrealistic) clash of GCPD and terrorists just...

It reminded me of equal parts the French Revolution and GAngs of New York. It is on a pretty epic scope, whether you like the movie or not.
