The 7 Best Things About Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy
7 of 7 Boldness
We all remember how shocking Rachel Dawes' death was in The Dark Knight. She was an important supporting player and Bruce Wayne's love interest. Few movies would kill such a central character, let alone in the middle of a movie. It gave depth and meaning to how the tragedy would transform both Dent and Wayne in opposite ways.
Other events such as Batman letting a man die, Alfred and Bruce parting ways after an emotional revelation, and killing the idea of Batman himself made this trilogy even more profound than ever expected.
