Not what I expected

While this was an ok movie, I was not satisfied with the final chapter of the series. They went to great lengths to out an ending to "their vision", but at the expense of the Batman history. Nice ideas for underlying themes, but it just sent the movie wondering down a weird trail.

Dark Knight Rises SD -- Pay Per View at home

I rate the overall of this movie on a scale from 1 - 10, a 8. The plot was good, but a llittle weak. Christian Bale, once again, was awesome in his role as Batman! And the character Bane was played very well also. The action shots in this movie were very explicit even though some could have been better explosives and better gunfire usage like some Rambo/SS movies just to compare. But you could tell this was the closing of the finale of the Batman series even though Christian showed up once at the end again after he supposedly died. It ended overall well. Not disappointed. Thank you.

editor! Or maybe better writing! 2 &3/4 hrs, cut me a break! An hour of this flick could easily have been left on the cutting room floor. There was zero chemistry between Cat and Bruce/Batman but that didn't stop the screenwriter from putting them together in the end. The sound, whether it can from Bain or Batman was terrible. Half of dialog was nearly incomprehensible. Awful, just plain awful:(

Solid Batman movie

The movie, although not as good as the Dark Knight, is very well woven and the acting is good. It felt satisfying and it was a good way to end the whole series. The movie is dark so I would recommend it for older/mature individuals.

Dark Knight, Don't Bother

Too many assumptions. Batman walks out of a prison in Tunisia or BFE and the next second he is in NYC.. how'd he get there???? Way too many of these instances laced thru the movie. The Bad Guy was terrible, the special effects were just average or less. I didn't like anything about the movie and wasted 2 hours+ of my time. The folks writing the glowing reviews evidently watched some other movie, not the one I did or they're just easily amused. Joe Wilkerson Riverside, CA
