Before I say anything, please, let me say that I enjoyed this film. I really did. From beginning of the trilogy right up to end, these movies were not treated like they were made for children. The material is dark and mature, and the performances Christopher Nolan summons from his actors are never anything less than impressive. But having said all that, I can also confidently say that The Dark Knight Rises, though a great end to a great trilogy, just did not live up to its predecessor, and in many ways, there is no way it could have. The following is my in depth analysis of the movie, and the questions it left me with after seeing it. If you were Robin and you read this article, you would say: Holy Spoilers, Batman! So if you have not seen it, go see it, then come back and read this.
