Is The Dark Knight Rises better than The Dark Knight?

This is all my friends wanted to know during the interval.

Simply put, there cannot be another Joker or a movie as epic as The Dark Knight.

But that shouldn't get in your way. As a stand alone movie, there is enough meat that makes The Dark Knight Rises a spectacular finale to the Batman series.

Having waited eagerly for more than a year, I was beyond exhilaration while watching it today. Though I had my reservations on how the movie would pan out and if Nolan could outclass his previous almost perfect acts, I felt rewarded as a fan. 


It's difficult to deliver on a project this ambitious in scale, especially when its popularity has assumed  mythical proportions. Nolan's Batman is not a comic strip adaptation; it's a deeply moving, spiritual experience.  


Yes, there are some plot holes. Bane is not a Joker. The editing could have been crisper and some characters deserved more screen time. But it doesn't matter.  


The slow build up, the fine performances, a bombastic musical score and skillful application of CGI culminated in a rich and satisfying climax to one of the best series ever made. 


I'm more than happy as a fan and a tad emotional that I won't get to see my favourite superhero again.
