Christopher Nolan's epic conclusion to his Dark Knight trilogy was truly a masterpiece that will forever be remembered by Batman fans and moviegoers alike. Nolan's portrayal of an incorruptable symbol fighting against pure evil is a beauiful thought, which he visualizes perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two movies, really getting connected with the characters and their emotions. However, TDKR took my enjoyment to a totally new level, and I can honestly say that it is my favorite of the trilogy. And now, it can truly stand on its pedestal as one of the most popular films ever created. The Dark Knight Rises has grossed over 1 billion dollars worldwide, passing its immediate predecessor. Not only has it been a critical success, it has now become a financial phenomenom. Don't hate on me if you think I'm being a little over-zealous, this film has captivated my mind, heart, and soul. Consider this an open mic for anyone who wants to sound off on this film, and its now extreme success.
