The Dark Knight Rises
A thrilling masterpiece
This film is truly a masterpiece. I loved the characters and I don't think anyone could have played Bruce Wayne/Batman as good as Christian Bale. There were different particular pairings that were good in their own way - the scenes with Bruce and Bane were intense and thrilling and the ones with Alfred and Bruce were beautiful. Despite Christian Bale being the main actor, it sometimes helped that he wasn't in all the good scenes. Everyone had their part and it felt like such an experience having that amazing power play. Give the characters a challenge and you give the audience a challenge, too.
