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.:)

I didn't think that they would be able to out-do themselves after the last Dark Knight but they went above and beyond! The story is compelling, the acting is phenomenal, the action keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time, and the ending perfectly ties everything together. I have zero complaints and nothing but the highest praise for this movie from beginning to end. Absolutely brilliant in every way. Hollywood can learn a lot from movies like this one. I laughed, I cried, I bit all of my nails off, and I walked out of the theater believing that the last 3 hours couldn't have been better spent. This is what a movie-going experiece SHOULD be like! In an ever-growing sea of unoriginal, overdone, lackluster, and genuinely crappy movies, The Dark Knight Rises stands above them all and manages to renew your faith in the movie industry...a feat I didn't think was possible until now. Well done. TRULY well done!!!!

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!

The story is heavy and hopeful all at the same time. It runs a little long, but follows the graphic novel theme all the way till very last frame.
