"Batman’s counter-terror measures"

Film  Batman expert Will Brooker explains what he thinks The Dark Knight Rises is about.  Spoilers.  Spoilers:
"Just as Batman Begins suggested that Scarecrow’s use of fear as a weapon was no different from Batman’s, and The Dark Knight ramped up the stakes by asking what, if anything, separated Batman’s counter-terror measures from Joker’s terror, so Dark Knight Rises is about the fragility of definitions, the limits of structures, the illusion of binary oppositions."
Which is about the only pull quote I can include here.  Spoilers.  Spoilers.
