Default Re: The Avengers vs The Dark Knight Rises - Part 1

The Avengers. Both were fantastic films, but TDKR falters in quite a few places compared to its competition. Avengers simply just has it beat.
  • Rises has some awesome fights between Bruce and Bane, but otherwise Avengers has more memorable set pieces.
  • Rises's score is catchy but still too minimalist for my tastes, while Avengers is old school superhero goodness courtesy of Silvestri. Plus, "Live to Rise" is a pretty kickass song.
  • Rises has a pretty big story to tell, but the pacing is not this film's strong suit. Avengers seems to jump from scene to scene without too much trouble, but there are times in Rises where you feel those 165 minutes.
  • Lastly, I know Bane was going to leave Bruce incapacitated for a portion of the movie, but in a movie that's close to three hours, could we have at least seen a little more of Batman, considering unlike Avengers, he's virtually the only costumed hero in this movie?
