For most of the movie I felt the story was too different from the original knightfall (batman vs Bain comics). With no Azriel and no Robin it was clear to me that the writers were pulling their ideas from thin air. However, just before the end as the plot came together I realized that I had been deceived and that this reaction must have been the writer's intention the whole time. I will won't tell you what happens but I will tell you this, if you are a true fan than you already know because every character in this movie has an origin and the writers stay true to that aspect for both batman and his villains. Before I saw this film being the fan that I am I already had an opinion of how this movie should go and although I was surprised by the out come I had already predicted I was still quite pleased. With that said it was a bit too long and the fighting was kind of dumb. Also, they had batman doing things I thought were out of charictor like an excessive use of gasoline on a bridge.

Christopher Nolan filmed a majority of the film in IMAX, so it's definitely worth seeing in an IMAX theater. I won't post anything about the plot, except that you need to see it ASAP to avoid anybody else spoiling it for you, including new, longer trailers. I loved all 165 minutes of it. GO GO GO, NOW!

Went into this with limited expectations, third and final installment in this reboot, not expecting much. What a great summer flick! Definitely a popcorn movie, Anne Hathaway made a great Cat Woman, JGL as Robin was too much (in a good way), and Gary Oldman finally got some lines. Christian Bale suffered and struggled more than ever, and the scene with Michael Caine almost brought a tear to my eyes. Tom Hardy played an OK Bane, but liked him much better in Nemesis.
Must see, worth the bucks for IMAX. Heck, my much older sister saw it in IMAX too in Atlanta, and even she liked it!

Great story line, well written & acted, with the exception of Matthew Modine. Nolan's gritty realism makes it easy to be swept along.
looking forward to the extended cut Blu-ray.

The movie was one of the best I have seen in awhile. It was so well written and put together. Cat woman was better than previous ones. Bane was such a great character. I have seen it twice now. Every thing just fell into place and showing previous pieces from the other dark knight movies was great. It is a 10 on my scale.
