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.:)

Spectacular movie, definately greatest superhero movie of all time. Well written, acted and directed. After The Dark Knight I didn't know how Christopher Nolan could top it, but he did so on the grandest possible scale. You feel attached to the characters and Bruce Wayne/Batman show why he is the greatest of all the superheroes, it truly shows his heart and his drive to protect the people of his city at any cost and sacrifice. Go see this movie, you will not regret it and you will want to see it again immediately.

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!

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!!!!

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!
