And I actually really enjoy the ferry sequence overall, I'm not one of those who thinks it wasn't a good idea for the third act. I loved the "what would I do in this situation?" angle to it, but it was definitely kind of odd to rest so much drama on the shoulders of mediocre to bad actors in the climax of the film.

So yeah, I completely agree shauner. This was one of the things my friends and I immediately noted as a positive when we walked out of TDKR.

Yeah, I never understood the "no more dead cops" complaint. It's mainly the ferries. But ive warmed up to it, it's still a great third act. TDKR was great in that there were no extras at the center of all the chaos in the 3rd act. That was a relief. I have to say, I enjoy that whole ending, chase scene, etc more than the 3rd act action sequences from BB or TDK. It tops it for me.

When I think of it now, I wouldn't change a thing about this trilogy. Im not the creator, it's their work, not mine. Whatever we don't get in a Batman movie, we're bound to get in another one.

I still give TDKR a top of the line rating. Ive seen it QUITE a few times since it's been out on Blu-ray and I don't care about the popular opinion around here, I enjoy Rises more than Dark Knight or Begins.
