As with any highly-anticipated film, lots of fans were left disappointed by "The Dark Knight Rises," which critics called the worst in the trilogy. Christopher Nolan previously said that the ending would be satisfying, but some would disagree.
How It Should Have Ended team has now put together a video offering many other ways that "The Dark Knight Rises" could have ended, and in the process, points out that it may not be a good idea to send all the cops underground.
Check out the video below and wait for a post-credit scene that we're glad didn't end up in the actual film.
The Dark Knight Rises was literally the most depressing film I've ever seen. 0 smiles were seen throughout the 6 hours I sat and watched it. It's easily the worst of the trilogy, just when I started to take the film a bit seriously at the end as he's flying over the river it cuts to a close up of his face and I realise it's a man dressed as a Bat with blacked out eyes and I could no longer take it seriously.

There are still so many other things they could have included, such as...
intelligence officer: *sees Bane break the guy's neck at the football stadium* "yep, that's that guy that died in the plane crash a few months ago."
"That one that was obviously staged? What with the bullet holes, and the fact that the plane kept flying despite the wings having broken off miles away from the crash site?"
"yeah, that one"
"well, how do you know it's that guy?"
"for one, he actually looks like him"
"but I thought that the dental records backed up that it was his body?"
"we didn't need to check his teeth - we found about 5% of his blood inside the body, that's all the evidence we need"
Bane: *sees bruce in the middle of the final fight* hey, wait a minute... *storms up to him*
batman: bane, i've come to finish you.
bane: how the hell did you get back here?
batman: wouldn't you like to know.
bane: but...but...i dropped you into a desert prison with a broken back, no money or technology, and no knowledge of where you were, and then I cut off the entire city so that not even the defence forces could get in here. So how'd you get back!?
batman: enough questions! *goes to fight him*
bane: *kicks his leg* ha!
batman: *collapses* damn it, i forgot about that...
bane; *punches him in the back*
batman: *falls over* argh, pain!
bane: in what reality, after spending months underground, starving and injured in a desert prison, could you possibly go up against me?
bane: damn straight
batman: *chasing after talia* argh...damn my anti-killing philosophy
catwoman: but you're firing missiles at them!
batman: damn my philosophy...
batman: hey selina
catwoman: yeah, bruce?
batman: i'm not bruce...i'm his friend
batman: hey, whatever happened to that friend you had? you two seemed pretty close...
batman; that girl...friend, the one you lived with?
talia: and then we shall destroy gotham!
bane: shouldn't we have done this months ago?
talia: no, i needed to show bruce how gotham would become.
bane: but the media can't get into gotham...and i left him in a desert prison.
talia: did you install the power and the television?
talia: then he'll suffer from the lack of news!
bane: *standing on the tumbler, reading gordon's speech* as you can see, they've lied to you!!
husband: *sitting at home with his wife, watching the news* the bastards...
wife: what? you're just going to believe them?
husband: of course i am honey; he's reading it off of a piece of paper!
husband: honey...*rubbing her on the shoulder* why would he lie?
bane: *on the tumbler* let's release the prisoners!
*all of the media run off*
bane: then we shall liberate your homes, your children, liberate them from the hostilities, the fear, from the...
minion: uh...bane, they're gone.
bane: DON'T INTERRUPT ME WHILE I'M DELIVERING MY SPEECH!
bane: as i was saying. we will liberate the children...
bruce: wow, this brace has completely fixed my leg!
alfred: excellent news, sir! Now, just be careful not to do anything too extreme.
bruce: *kicks the brick wall, breaking his leg* AHHHHHHHH
alfred: like that...
batman: *in the c*ckpit, carrying the bomb towards the ocean* now, the wind is blowing to the west, so there's no way that the radiation will hit the city. now, there's only three seconds left, it's time to make my escape...*finds the 'teleport' button* ah, mr fox - you've done it again! *presses it and disappears*
fox: *looking over the wreckage of the bat* thank god it survived the explosion...
crewman: it's certainly a sturdy ship.
fox: it sure is. kind of wish i made more than one though...
crewman: *looking around the hangar* it's a good thing bane didn't take anything else other than the tumbler. he could have done a lot more damage...
fox: what's this?
crewman: oh, looks like someone installed an auto-pilot.
fox: quite a talent that is, wish i could have done it myself.
crewman: oh no, that definitely would have taken someone who knew what they were doing.
talia: yes bruce, it was me.
bruce: so your were the mercenary's daughter. you are talia al ghul!
talia; yes bruce, i just told you - hey, wait a minute. how did you know my father was the mercenary in the story?
bruce: because he told me
bruce: he came to me as a ghost while i was recovering in the prison bane left me in.
talia: ...come again.
bruce: he came to me as a ghost.
talia: ...and revealed to you that he was the mercenary?
talia: i see...
batman and catwoman: *run outside* we'll take the bat and catch up to her - hey! where the heck is the bat!
talia: *flying off in the bat* thanks bruce!
batman: ...probably shouldn't have left it in the middle of the street.
intelligence officer: "got word back, they've determined that wayne's money was illegally taken"
"how'd they determine that?"
"well, it was the only activity made during the time when the trade centre was taken hostage by bane and his men"
"...i doubt it"
"what do you mean?"
"it's what wayne wants us to think! screw him, he ain't getting any of that back..."
bruce: *admiring the new bat cave* beautiful...
alfred: to think, we did it all ourselves.
bruce: of course, we had no other choice. if someone else were working on this, they would know my secret!

The top critics' score on rotten tomatoes is 75% - the lowest of the trilogy.
dimoulaswrites: on August 24th, 2012 at 9:28:55 AM
Top critics gave Batman Begins a score of 61% on rottentomatoes...but I still think the first two films are far superior to TDKR.

hahahaha! this was jokes. The movie was so f*cking bad.
BadChadB33writes: on August 24th, 2012 at 9:39:20 AM
I wondered when this was coming out.
Fightclub1writes: on August 24th, 2012 at 10:06:40 AM
Again Alex I didn't see any critic say it was the worst in the trilogy, it has 87% on RT which is better than the first but not as good as the second. In my opinion its the best in the trilogy. Also the fan rating on RT is 92%.....I'd hardly all that dissipointing. As for the video, funny
Damon242writes: on August 24th, 2012 at 10:09:12 AM
They did too, oops. But I agree, the third is the weakest, and on a personal note, it's the first Nolan film I haven't actually enjoyed.
Damon242writes: on August 24th, 2012 at 10:12:53 AM
Just to clarify, Alex is probably getting that information from the actual reviews. They still give the film a passing grade (fresh), but quite a few consider it the weakest of the trilogy.
BB & DKR had a level of fun that Dark Knight Rises completely lacked. Even if Nolan did finally try to add an extra dimension to the acting and actually allow you to develop some form of attachment to any of the characters, it's supposed to be f*cking Batman!
I wanna see him use gadgets and f*ck sh*t up, not walk about like a prat in his dressing gown, cleaning up Alred's tears.
I'm seeing so many 5 star reviews and people bigging it up did they watch the same film as me? The bit at the end where the police, holding only batons and pistols, are running down the road at the heavily armed "trained" terrorists with machine guns and barely any of them get hit, they somehow make it close enough to have fist fights like some poorly choreographed Breavheart battle. They would get massacred before they even made it close.
Nolan always goes on about this "real" world that he's created, the lack of effort on things like that and loads of other silly mistakes means that film definitely aint worthy of a 5 star rating.
Mink- You seen Game of Thrones yet?

"Mink- You seen Game of Thrones yet?"
Nope. Been getting in some trouble with the old torrenting, and with Demonoid now gone, I'm taking hiatus from downloading anything not on http.
minkowskiwrites: on August 25th, 2012 at 2:01:38 PM
a. A hiatus.

Why not just stream it?
