Seven things that could have made 'The Dark Knight Rises' better


So there’s a very good chance that you’ve seen The Dark Knight Rises, and there’s even a very good chance that you liked it.  Honestly, I’m jealous.  If you’ve read any of my other comic-related articles for the site, you know that I’m obsessed with Batman, and if you read my Top 100 Movies of the 2000’s you’ll know that I’m obsessed with Chris Nolan.  Between these two things, I went into this movie wanting so so badly to like it... but I just didn’t.  And I wasn't alone!  Sure there were things to like, but overall I found it to be lacking in most of the things that I love about Batman and Chris Nolan.  What made it even more frustrating is that there really was a good movie in there somewhere, but the execution felt so sloppy and rushed that I was never able to dig in emotionally.  Which is why I’m here to prevent seven steps that, in my opinion, could have turned DKR into not just the Batman movie that we wanted, but the one that we deserve.

Heavy SPOILERS throughout, by the way.  So if you haven’t seen it, go do that, and then check back in.  I’ll be here.
