Re: Batman Begins v.s The Dark Knight Rises
Batman Begins wins for the simple fact that this is the one Batfilm that feels like it truly and totally belongs to Bruce Wayne, both in terms of story and "Who stole the show?"
It also helps that its the one Nolan film where the main villain isn't seemingly running rings around Batman for most of the movie.
