    The dark Knight 2 was crippled by the delays and last minute rewrites after the 9/11 attacks. Benefit of the doubt.

    The dark Knight 3 was so bad in so many ways that it proves definitely and forever that the people who made the dark Knight never had the slightest idea why it was such a revolutionary hit.

    Like Casablanca in the middle of the b movie grind, or the final reflection in the Star trek pocket books. Sometimes the stars align.

    I’m sorry you bought the hardcover of dk3.
