Wants to be an epic but falls short

This movie felt more like the middle part of a trilogy than the conclusion. Usually the middle part is the weakest, having to carry the story along until the third part wraps everything up with a bang. (Think The Two Towers in The Lord of the Rings series.) That's what this felt like to me, a by-the-numbers movie that had a checklist of points to hit without a satisfying, overarching story to link it all together. Given the obvious set up for another movie, this is hardly the last film in the series so hopefully the next one can give us the big finish this one promised to provide.

Epic Conclusion

First of all, I have been a huge Batman fan since a child, so I will say that I am slightly biased. Ill start with the Cons: Had some difficulty understanding Bane's almost Darth Vader voice. Pros: AMAZING Great intro and enjoyed the complexity of the movie Def. had emotional aspects Had some hilarious moments Great ending Christian Bale finally had did a fantastic acting job (other 2 he did well, just not great). I think he could be the strongest actor of the movie I can expand but in the name of not spoiling the movie further I will leave it as is. ENJOY!

Better than expected!

I went into this movie expecting it to be good, but not better than The Dark Knight. To say the least i was presently surprised. I have heard its not as good. I also heard the story line sucked and that there is too much going on and that the end is not good. I Disagree with all of those. The movie is long but it does not drag one bit. It is full of action and some scenes leave you shocked and awed. The last 45 minutes is awesome! The ending could not have been better. This is the best of the three films guaranteed. Go see it you will not be disappointed.

Batman still growing...

I personally did not have a high anticipation for this movie. Unlike others, I was not a fan of the darkness of Bat 2. This movie does do some things well.... Cinematography.. FX off the wall and or the stunts done to create the illusion. Excellent acting..I especially liked Bane or Bain's dialogue. What I didn't like was the character development or the assumed abilities of Bat Girl..whatever her name was suppose to be. The chemistry did not ramp up at all and other than the poured on suit she was wearing, I thought her performance mediocre at best. The ending is excellent and suggest another sequel. Who knows? What I do know is that the AVENGERS have set a benchmark and its a tough one to climb up out of...just like Batman had to.:)

Dark Knight Delivers

The story is heavy and hopeful all at the same time. It runs a little long, but follows the graphic novel theme all the way till very last frame.
