Comparing villains or comparing scripts, between this movie and The Dark Knight, would be unfair. The Dark Knight was a genre-changing film. Despite a few minor flaws, this movie was still a highly-entertaining and exhilarating sequel. I'm already looking forward to seeing the movie again in theaters (ironically, the last movie I saw that I felt the same way about was The Dark Knight). Great flick!

My favorite of the trilogy and I'm sad to see it end. Jason Gordon Levitt stood out, and the rest of the cast was amazing. The Knightfall saga is handled almost seamlessly. Go see it!

For a movie that is over 2.5 hours long, it goes pretty quick. Not the best of the trilogy, but absolutely worth seeing, especially in IMAX. There are some surprising twists but I feel most of the "shock and awe" was lost in the trailer.

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.

Let me preface by saying it was a good attempt with the villains provided, but the story wasn't as strong. Bane was okay, but there could have been an emphasis on the other villains. And Spoiler alert...
Talia deserved more screen time. Her character was amazing but seems like too much of a side-note. Catwoman was also neglected. Anne did the best with what was written, so I'm certainly not blaming her. But come on...And you're telling me that Bruce, being that close to a nuclear explosion, would not have been vaporized? Please. That seemed like such a movie studio decision not to kill Bruce Wayne. I was okay with the Robin thing, but if you're going to have Robin replace Batman, have the balls to kill Batman. Just sayin'...
