Let me start by saying that I really liked Batman Begins and loved the Dark Knight. Unfortunately, this movie was NOTHING like them. Batman isn't even in three quarters of the movie. Alfred is barely in it. It mostly follows Gordon and Blake - it's really more their movie. It's about a couple of cops trying to survive in a Gotham under occupation. The quarter (if that) Batman's in he's just a punching bag. The fight scenes, especially the showdown with Bane, are just brutal and not something that's entertaining at all. The movie jumps all over the place and lacks the coherence and nuance of TDK. It's a mess. The end is also unsatisfying. As I was walking out of the theatre, the guy next to me commented that it was the worst Batman movie he ever saw. This is certainly the worst of the trilogy in my opinion. I would have felt a lot better if he stopped at TDK.

First PRAYERS FOR THE VICTIMS IN AURORA CO we pray you are comforted! This is the BEST MOVIE EVER (as far as action) Action immediately did a decent job following the comic story. Tom Hardy to Bane was like Heath Ledger to the Joker (God rest his soul), Nolan did a great job and the possibility of Robin will be awesome just so long as its dark as well.

Waited to see this post the initial buzz. Went in hearing it was great but maybe not the best of the Trilogy. My son and I think it was probably the best. Time will tell. Loved the story, the characters, the cinematography, the new toys and the pacing. While it is a long film, get why each scene was integral. Two big thumbs up.

Spectacular movie, definately greatest superhero movie of all time. Well written, acted and directed. After The Dark Knight I didn't know how Christopher Nolan could top it, but he did so on the grandest possible scale. You feel attached to the characters and Bruce Wayne/Batman show why he is the greatest of all the superheroes, it truly shows his heart and his drive to protect the people of his city at any cost and sacrifice. Go see this movie, you will not regret it and you will want to see it again immediately.

In time people will see the Nolan crafted Batman trilogy in similar light of the original Star Wars trilogy. TDKR and Episode Six both are visually stunning and the loose ends are wrapped up masterfully. Sadly, neither are quite as great as the movies before them in their respective series. Yet, both are master works all the same.
