Yeah. I'm not sure what The Avengers thing is about. He gave it three out of four stars in his review, so obviously he enjoyed it. Avnegers is the ultimate Marvel comic book movie in my opinion. Watching the film felt like turning the pages of one of the better storylines of the comic series. If he wants to see the characters fleshed out a bit....well that may happen in the next one. The Dark Knight Rises felt like the ultimate Batman graphic novel. It had elements of The Dark Knight Returns(1986) and the Bane story arc of the early 90's in which BAtman gets his back broken. Add to that the lonliness and troubled life of Bruce Wayne (he knows how to wallow in misery better than any super hero). I absoultely loved the first act of the film, great action in the middle and last act and a perfect ending. Without a doubt my favorite film of 2012.
