The dark knight rises
@VioletEyedDragon: Well I can atleast try.
I'll apologise in advance for any errors or spelling mistakes since english isn't my native language.
Batman Begins have the tremendious benefit of being the first of the three. Which means it gets to tell the story of how Bruce Wayne became Batman. The benefit of that is it manages to tell a very human story about loss, dissapointment (Wayne maybe felt that he was a dissapointment to his parents) and revenge. We get to see Bruce's transformation and it's absolutely fascinating. Batman is without a doubt the most interesting character in the film, as he should be. BB is one of the best, though there are others I think are just as good as it if not better, superhero origin tales on film.
TDK is were it started to go downhill. Ledgers performance is great and he really carries the film a lot of the time, but one really good thing can't necessarily fix a lot of unfortunate things. I'm not alone on thinking this, multiple reviewers agrees with me on the following: Nolan have never been a great action director. My main problem with the action scenes is that they are edited poorly. It's like he fills to much information into the scenes instead of focusing on the important parts of that specific action sequence. He also breaks really simple film making rules, and apparently does so without knowing it. The following video explains a lot of the problems I have with the action scenes: http://vimeo.com/28792404
Secondly: Batman is not a interesting character in TDK. In BB Bruce Wayne/Batman went through a journey that changed him. That was the main story of BB and it was terrific. In TDK he is no longer the focus. The Joker is the focus. Batman has been reduced to a sidenote and he doesn't go through any big development if you ask me and neither does the joker. The Joker stays the joker through the entire film. You could argue that Harvey Dent is the character that changes and develops during the film, but his role as two-face is crammed into a film that is already overloaded with themes. Two-face never really gets the time and attention he deserves to properly breathe and become an interesting character.
TDKR have a lot of the same issues as TDK and on top of that it's just to long. Hans Zimmer's music also hits a new low with this film if you ask me: It plays in the same tone more or less through the entire film and espicially the last hour or so is really uninspiring composed.
The rest is overrated.
