A Worthy Conclusion but far from perfect.
The worst thing you can do is go in thinking it will be like the Dark Knight. You will be sorely disappointed. The entire movie leaves you thinking, if Heath Ledger didn't die, this movie would have been a lot better. They made it work, but there were obvious flaws. All these things added up and took focus away from the film. It's a must see, but as a film it is hindered by its overloaded plot lines. It suffered from the "Spiderman 3 effect." You don't walk away from it feeling completely satisfied because you just wish Nolan noticed these problems. SPOILER SECTION: The last scene was overkill. It should have cut to black when we saw Alfred smile and nod. NO NEED to cut to Bruce and Selina. Cut to BLACK Inception style. ALSO, as good as the ending was, in bringing back the Florence story, Batman should have died! More EPIC! It would have shown how the batman is passed on and on, and each one eventually must sacrifice themseves. ALSO, Robin's real name is not Robin. It's ****Grayson
