mjgildea's rating of the film The Dark Knight Rises

Not exactly the brilliant shock to the system The Dark Knight was, but like any great album The Dark Knight Rises needs a few listens before it all clicks. True, the plot holes and occasional whiff of nonsense prove that Nolan had no intention of coming back and cleaning up the hotel room he masterfully trashed with The Dark Knight. It wasn't a spotless cleanup but at least the smell and the blood stains are gone.
