Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec
While I don't think Rises is a terrible film, in response to the question, I think it does prevent the trilogy from being perfect.
The Dark Knight was such a brilliant chapter in the story, that I wish Rises would have built on that and created something new, as opposed to depending on the first two films so much. Unfortunately, I think what really prevented the third film's success was the untimely death of Heath Ledger. We all know that the Joker would have been in the concluding chapter based on how The Dark Knight was received, but it wasn't meant to be.
