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!

Not my favorite Batman movie. Alfred would NEVER leave Bruce Wayne and the story just wasn't very interesting. My husband enjoyed the action and photography.

I am at the movies nearly every weekend, sometimes twice a week. Sometimes I wind up seeing ALL the new releases so soon that we need to wait a few weeks until another comes out, so it's easy to become jaded when you see a number of films that don't meet with your expectations.
I have to say that this third installment of the Dark Knight films was just as good as the first as well as the second. While the story obviously had to differ from the comics, it still retained some of the story lines that were true to the characters. I was absolutely on the edge of my seat the entire time! It was thrilling and I clapped enthusiastically at the end. It's rare when I can walk away from a film and say, "That was REALLY good!" It's even MORE rare when I can walk away from a film and say, "That was TOTALLY AWESOME!"
It was the perfect ending to this trilogy, but it still leaves it open to go in various directions. Excellent job by all involved in making the film! GO SEE IT!!

The movie was awesome! and do recommend everyone to go see it in theaters, the experience is never the same as you home big screen TV. Also, the IMAX experience is out of this world! I would have not seen the movie any other way than IMAX.

I thought the TDKR was a satisfying conclusion to the Nolan trilogy. While it was long, like its predecessor, I thought the transitions from scene to scene flowed much better and not nearly as clunky. The cast, though I concede Ms. Coitilard was under-utilized, was very good in their respective roles. The technical crew, the DP, editors, FX, alll did fine work.
The story, without spoilers, was reasonably involuted for a summer blockbuster, and Nolan
is to be commended for trying not to make "mindless" entertainment for the masses.
Quick--name the nineteenth century novel quoted at the end by Alfred Pennyworth.
(I 'm stating this because one wag last time out averred Mr. Nolan aspired to the standard of Michael Bay than Michael Mann.)
That said, I thought the fight sequences were finallly (!) fluent and better choreographed.
(In my mispent youth, the comics never had anyone land a punch with "kaboom" but "KABOOM") .
Despite minor cavills, see this movie.
