HUGE fan of Batman and I did enjoy the first two Nolan movies but this one didnt do it for me. My only complaint of Bale as the Bat is the same as it has been through all three movies his voice as Batman is, to me, a distraction. Other than that he does very well in the role. Bane;s voice on the other hand REALLY bothered me. Aside from the Shaun Connery impression I could not understand a great deal of what he said...and I was in an IMAX theater with awesome sound. I didnt hate this movie but I think, as happens in Hollywood, they try to go so big and kinda of loose the story along the way. The reason the Averngers was so well done is they made a movie with a great appeal to non and casual comic fans but did the little things that connects with us comic nerds. Worth seeing but clearly the worst of the trilogy of Nolans...........oh and Batman was not in half the movie...I guess I just did not get it

The film was outstanding. Nolan doesn't it again and in grand style. If it has Nolan's name on it I'm there. The man is a genius and totally saved the Batman franchise. The Dark Knight Rises will not disappoint! You should have seen it yesterday!

Awesome experience in IMAX! Highly recommend seeing this movie in this venue - worth the extra bucks. Don't expect to see endless Pittsburgh footage, you yinzers, but enough to make it that much more interesting.

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 personally did not have a high anticipation for this movie. Unlike others, I was not a fan of the darkness of Bat 2. This movie does do some things well....
FX off the wall and or the stunts done to create the illusion.
Excellent acting..I especially liked Bane or Bain's dialogue.
What I didn't like was the character development or the assumed abilities of Bat Girl..whatever her name was suppose to be. The chemistry did not ramp up at all and other than the poured on suit she was wearing, I thought her performance mediocre at best.
The ending is excellent and suggest another sequel. Who knows? What I do know is that
the AVENGERS have set a benchmark and its a tough one to climb up out of...just like Batman had to.:)
