What I can say is that I'm spoiled by Marvel Avengers/Spiderman and when I saw Batman, I was like wtf just happen? o.O.........almost 3 hours worth of crap sitting in the chair wondering where the hell is the real extreme action? Yes, there was some action, but is that really it? The story line was good, but we are talking about Batman here and where the hell was the real extreme hardcore action? Yet, batman looks too old to be batman in this one, he was super slow and weak. There's no fancy fighting style, not talking about busting any karate or judo, but at least something more than just straight street style fighting. Action scenes were weak and should have been more of it.

over hyped! The main thing wrong with this movie is that in the action sequences, the music is so loud you can't hear the dialogue. I was disappointed in the film.

One of the greatest trilogy I've ever seen. One par with the Lord of the Rings. Great acting from all the cast members, great story line, great actions, and a great finish for the Franchise.

Going to the theater and waiting in the seat for the movie to begin was the most thrilling part because of the uneasiness regarding the theater shooting in Aurora. I was suspiciously checking out anyone who stood up or came into the theater. The movie was a total letdown. Bane had the most annoying voice. Matthew Modine was horrible and Gary Oldman was pathetic in the hospital bed. The whole movie was terribly predictable. Utterly dissappointed overall.

Before I criticize the movie I must begin by acknowledging the standard that Christopher Nolan had set with his first two movies of the Batman trilogy. He literally redefined, not just the Batman franchise, but with it the entire comic universe. And unfortunately, DKR failed to live up to those standards. There was ample time (3 hours) to develop the new characters but it didn't. The middle part of this movie kept building up to a breathtaking end, but when it came it felt hollow and rushed partly due to the shallow new characters. Another failure was Bane's awkwardness, which while deliberate was nothing like the Joker's strangeness; it just wasn't properly executed. And then the myriad of flaws such as thousands of cops marching into a tunnel as if its a parade and the classic romantic timefreeze kiss at the end where the timer on the bomb seems to matter little. Yes we're used to forgiving these senseless moments but then this was Nolan and he had set higher standards.
