I agree. But I felt that exact same feeling you describe in that sentence, including that "perfect" line, with the ending to Rises. The difference is that TDK also had a sad and haunting quality to it. While Rises was extremely uplifting and bright.

As with all Blake moments.
Agreed.

I never felt Blake proved himself beyond all reasonable doubt that he was worthy of the mantle either. Batman had like three brief scenes with him in the whole movie.

At least with Dent he made him prove himself by seeing if he could get all those mob guys locked up first.
