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.
Great intro and enjoyed the complexity of the movie
Def. had emotional aspects
Had some hilarious moments
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.

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.

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."

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!!
