I'm just not getting the hype. The movie had great special effects but not much more. If you miss the first hour or so, no problem, movie isn't that good until the end anyway.

FIrst off, RIP to the Aurora victims and my prayers go out to all of their surviving family members.
TDKR is probably the most gratifying summer blockbuster I have seen and Nolan has once again raised a bar that TDK had already set so impeccably high already. The soundtrack ushered my moods fittingly scene by scene. Bane was incredibly done by Hardy and any doubts of Hatthaway as the Cat were put to rest. As for the bat, we the viewers were treated to Bruce Wayne's heroic turnaround from humiliating defeat to the pinnacle of his vigilante "career". As opposed to Ledger (Joker) stealing the show in TDK, Bale rose to unreachable heights as Bruce Wayne in a performance that will forever haunt any attempts of a reboot. TDKR couldn't have ended in any other way and Nolan will be cemented as an iconic legend, alongside Stan Lee and Bob Kane when its all said and done.

The acting and plot line was possibly the only redeeming quality for the Batman series' 3rd film. I was most disappointed with the choreography, especially for the fight scenes, which were cheesy and unrealistic. The movie was also too long--it seemed as though the producers bit off more than they could chew. The last 10 minutes were the best part of the movie.

Out of 3 long boring hours...the Character Batman is in it maybe 30 minutes (combined). It was all focusing on Bane, Gordon, "Blane" (should of been **** Grayson) who is Robin in the last scene, but not in costume. The worst Catwoman I've ever seen. She was NOT sexy, sensual nor purred!!! And her goggles were suppose to be cat ears when she had them flipped up!? I thought Bruce Wayne and the Bat Computer were super intelligent. Not in this movie...Bruce blindly trusts this woman to take over Wayne Enterprises and Bankrupt him. Why didn't he check her out or question anything...No...only at the end does he find out the truth. Fight scenes between Bane and Batman were so slow and lack luster that watching senior citizens fight would be just as exciting!!! BAT TANKS (in army camo) were plentiful and under Bane's control. SO....there was NO OFFICIAL BATMOBILE in this movie. Where were Batman's gadgets? HORRIBLY DRAWN OUT...Wait for dvd to sleep in your own home!!!

Whoever mixed the musical score must be hard of hearing. Many, MANY times the music drowned out the dialogue. A terrible movie experience.....wait for the DVD or stream the movie. This way you have some control over volume
Sure would have been nice to hear the cast! Oh yea the time bomb thing not played very well.
