The set-pieces are godly though.
This, except for Nolan doing anything good. the final sentence is specially truth, Nolan does a lot of stupid and vaccum Filosophy in his films
Probably Nolan was much more closer to the comic, but if you talk about quality of a film, Burton's Batman is so much better is not even fun. And well, in that time Burton still was a good filmmaker
Also, people who want movies being necessary closer to the books or the comics should keep reading the books or the comic
