At least, that's what Todd McCarthy from the Hollywood Reporter is saying, along with Justin Chang of Variety.
So are 9 other critics which have unanimously given glowing reviews to give the conclusion of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The Avengers was the summer's biggest hit so far with a $613.5 million at the U.S. box office, but critics aren't afraid to admit that what The Dark Knight Rises may end up lacking in box office numbers, it will certainly make up for in quality. Here's what McCarthy had to say:
"The real world threats of terrorism, political anarchy and economic instability make deep incursions into the cinematic comic book domain in The Dark Knight Rises. Big-time Hollywood filmmaking at its most massively accomplished, this last installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy makes everything in the rival Marvel universe look thoroughly silly and childish. Entirely enveloping and at times unnerving in a relevant way one would never have imagined, as a cohesive whole this ranks as the best of Nolan's trio."
