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.

Nolan finishes the trilogy with superb skill. Only he can put together such a great story. Seeing it in IMAX is a must as it was filmed with an IMAX camera. We may never witness another superhero series like this. Not as good as the Dark Knight but it "Rises" to the calling of greatness!

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.

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.

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!
