Default Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec

It's the Batman that they established in Batman Begins. The one who set out to take Gotham back from the corrupt and shake people out of apathy.

It was never Batman's goal to prevent every mugging from happening, because that's impossible. It was about being a symbol. Like how Gordon turns on the signal in TDK to remind people he's out there, and the drug dealer gets all shaken up.

It's just wrong to say this version of Batman wanted to stop every single crime in Gotham when we see him looking to pass the torch to Dent in TDK and have a normal life. Does he think Dent will stop every mugging and murder? No, he believes Dent will give Gotham a fighting chance to win the fight against corruption and be a symbol of good for the people.

These movies are all about symbols.
