...Like I said Masterpiece. This movie is PHENOMENAL. Another Nolan movie that has broken the grounds of film making. If you're iffy on the going to see the movie because of the idea that the Joker was "the best", you'll be in for a thrilling surprise to see that this movie surpasses The Dark Knight. Catwoman/Anne Hathaway's opening moments of her character will have you cheering for her outstanding acting performance, and when Bane/Tom Hardy starts to terrorize everything and has a fight with Batman you'll forget everything about the Joker. The story is mind blowing and also fulfilling, you'll be wanting to give a standing applause before the movie is over. Dark Knight Rises finishes the trilogy in pure excellence.

The best acting in the movie goes to Micheal Cane. This isnt to say that Bale and Hatheway's acting wasnt excellent because it was and its the glue that holds this movie together. It was a little difficult connecting the plot dots at times and there wasnt enough Batman, but thats true of all the Batman movies. Over all, inspite of a B movie feel at times, I highly recommend seeing this in IMAX!

I considered "The Dark Knight" the best film of the last decade and when it came to "The Dark Knight Rises," I set my expectations incredibly high, knowing that Christopher Nolan could accomplish a task as monumental as providing a sequel to the film that changed the genre and culture in general. Christopher Nolan accomplished surpassing one of his own greatest works and shattered my expectations for this movie. It was superbly written, the acting was beyond expectations and the direction was masterful. This movie did so much more than be better than "The Dark Knight," and "The Avengers." This movie really tied the trilogy as a whole together through the character of Bane regarding the shadow of Ras Al Ghul and the impact of the crimes of Two Face and did so in stunning fashion. I couldn't take my eyes of this movie, my heart never stopped racing through this movie, and when it was over I couldn't stop shaking. This was absolutely glorious. LONG LIVE THE KNIGHT!!!!

Chris Nolan's vision, direction and execution puts him in a league without peers. The Batman trilogy is 100% cinematic heroin. Mr. Nolan has now officially relegated his competition to mere purveyors of cheap imitations in the form of cinematic methadone.
