You come into the movie expecting the be entertained, something expected from Nolan's Dark Knight interpretations. What you actually get is an awe-inspiring experience that keeps you guessing all the way to the end, with the beautiful, sometimes haunting cinematography trademark of Christopher Nolan films and a story with as enough twists and turns to keep you entertained the whole 205 minutes of run time. The script has equal parts action and human emotion. The viewer sees, for the first time, the heart, soul and spirit of Gotham's citizens and leaves the audience with a sense of fulfillment, completion and closure. If you are a true fan of this trilogy, you owe it to yourself to see the conclusion to this legend they call, "The Dark Knight."

This movie was everything I expected and more. Christian Bale is Batman! I love him in this role he's the best Batman I've ever seen. The movie was well cast Bane was exactly how I remember from the cartoons. Anne did a good job as catwoman as well. I couldn't really see her in the role initially but she surprised me. I figured out Robin's identity and I love that he was brought in. I know this is the last movie but I can't help but hope for more! The movie is a bit long but I didn't lose interest. It's a must see!

From my earliest memories, Batman has been my favorite superhero. Batman and Robin basically made a joke of the character and left it for dead. Christopher Nolan has created the Batman fan's dream with his trilogy. This movie is dark. Probably darker and bleaker than any other in the series (and that is saying something). Like every other Nolan film, the characterization is great for the most part. If you're worried about too many characters, don't be. Catwoman is executed perfectly, Bruce and Alfred are expanded on, Blake (new police officer) has a story, Bane has reasons for what he is doing and the ideas are top notch. The idea of giving his victims "hope" in the truest form of despair. This does not feel like a traditional superhero film and depending on how you feel about that will likely impact how you like the movie. If you like the others, it's a must see. It may not reach the level of The Dark Knight, but the fact that it is a question tells you the quality of this film.

Why must the movie theaters blast you out of your seats?? I felt I needed ear plugs for parts of this movie. that being said, I enjoyed it. I loved the set up for future movies, and the closure it gave for this one. NICE!!

We loved this movie! It was long, but never slow or boring. The only problem was the speakers for the music were evidently just to our left and we could not hear all the dialog due to the music being too loud. We've already said we'll have to rent the movie when it comes out on DVD so we can hear what was said.
