Default Re: Why is everyone slamming TDKR? - Part 1

I actually think TDKR is a much better movie than BB. However, BB feels more traditional to Batman tropes (working with Gordon, doing some detective work, fighting gangsters instead of terrorists, saving the city before things get TOO bad, bat-signal, batmobile, etc.).

TDKR's first hour is like that for the most part and it is the part fans complain the least. When it becomes an epic on the scale of Lean and turns into a story about Bruce Wayne learning to give up the Batman so he can stop Bane's Robespierre-like revolution...that is when fans get frustrated with it.

Also, TDK is clearly better. And since this movie is a step down from the second, that leads to inevitable disappointment for some. But it will hold up better than almost every other superhero movie ever released.
