You mean as far as realism? For the first film I'd agree. For the latter two I find I have to turn off my brain to think that a guy going around blowing up public buildings, and another one who holds a major city under threat of an atomic bomb, and the only people who are prepared to help are the Police and a vigilante.
Don't get me wrong, I like the TDK movies but I find them to be post 9/11 ignorant.
This movie lives in the 9/11 mind set and is why the story works so well.
