Stunning conclusion to an epic trilogy.

I think I am only the one who cried for Bane...

The Dark Knight trilogy really reminds me of the original Star Wars trilogy in terms of quality. The first of the series is fantastic and new and gets you so pumped up for the franchise. Then the second one (Empire Strikes Back) comes out and blows up with awesomeness. That one is a great film by any standard even outside the genre. Then the third one (Return of the Jedi) comes along and cannot live up to the fantastic film before it. But it still is a good, satisfying conclusion to the story.

I have a bunch of specific plot points in this one that bother me, but I still enjoy watching it nonetheless. There are some amazing action scenes that are worth it no matter what. Also, "That's a lovely, lovely voice." makes me laugh so hard every time.
