The Dark Knight Rises
First of all, I have seen each of Chris Nolan's films and I've come to expect great things from him. The Dark Knight Rises is a real triumph of movie making. Resisting the gimmicky 3-D garbage and overdone CGI, Nolan once again brings the question "How'd they DO that?" to the viewers' minds.
I predicted a few of the plot twists, but that doesn't mean that they were "predictable". A fellow movie buff that I saw the film with was not so keen on what was going to happen next.
Also, if there was complaint I heard over and over about The Dark Knight (#2 in the series) it was that Batman voice. In Rises, they seemed to have learned from their past, not giving Batman much to say. (You may complain about Bane's voice, however...starting now!)
Over all, it was a great movie and a perfect finale to Nolan's contribution to the Batman saga. Just don't make the mistake I made. Do your research and find out if you have a true IMAX screen nearby, and then go there. You'll thank me.
