    This conversation came up at the weekend between me and my brother in law,
    Were talking which is the better film overall,

    He recons Dark Knight is better,
    After seeing Rises last night i have to disagree with him i recon the new film is the best overall.

    Can even add Batman begins into the mix if anyone thinks thats the best of the 3

    Definitely the Dark Knight Rises. The Dark Knight was great, but I felt like the second half wasn't as good as the first half, while Rises was consistently great throughout.

    I just saw TDKR yesterday, and loved it. However, I still think TDK is the better film. TDK felt more focused and cohesive; especially the second half. Story wise, TDK hits a bit harder as well because it's so devastating personally for Bruce Wayne, and ends with him basically giving up. While TDKR has plenty of great action set pieces, it doesn't come close to topping the armored truck sequence from TDK.

    I still can't decide whether the Joker or Bane was the better villain, though. Ledger and Hardy both delivered excellent performances. The Joker was manic, psychotic, and didn't have any clear motives. Bane was just plain intimidating.

    I think that joker was the better performance as a bad guy,
    Dont get me wrong hardy's Bane was a brilliant performance but heath's joker was absolutely outstanding.

    that was part of the reason i prefer TDKR I prefered the way it focuses more on batman were as TDK seemed to be completely focused on the joker to the point were bales brilliant performance as wayne/batman was almost a little overshadowed.

    both absolutely amazing films but i think Rises is just a bit better for me.

    I have to watch The Dark Knight Rises again. By then I can probably choose which one is better. Its hard to make the call. I might lean towards TDK....that's one of my personal favorite movies ever.

    No question, The Dark Knight!
  11. See we cannot Compare one with each other as each movie got its own story line and according to each and every series has all the Highlights in It, Ya may be in Rises the Cat-women stayed as a center of Attraction :p but even tough i think all the parts would have got there own Credits.

    I think the Dark Knight Rises is as Epic as cinema gets. Each film in this trilogy just got better as they went on.
    Plus a good mention for Heath Ledger (rip) as the Joker but Micheal Caine was brilliant in all 3 especially in DKR!
