Just saw the movie last night and I loved it.
Sure, there were some plot holes, cliches, and pacing issues, but the movie was filled with epic moments.
All of the actors did superb jobs. Bale, Hardy, Hathaway, Caine and the rest gave it their all.
Favourite part was probably when Batman finally got the upper hand on Bane and was yelling at him as he beat him down.
Overall, a great end to the trilogy. I'll definitely be buying this on blu-ray when it comes out.

Yeah I loved that part so much I decided to spoil it for people who haven't seen this movie yet.

If people are trying to avoid spoilers for TDKR, they probably shouldn't be browsing public forums on said movie.

They should just go to the theatre and see the thing.

Great movie didn't like it as much as the first 2 personally but considering how great those where I hardly consider that a criticism.

I think this is my stance on the movie. It had a great ending, but everything before that wasn't as tight as the first two movies, I think. Still incredible. Catwoman and John Blake were AMAZING.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Other than Bane, I was pretty dissapointed in the movie. Too many unbelievable moments that really made you have to suspend belief, and this is a franchise that tries to be as realistic as possible (which I felt the first two films did a great job of that). Not a horrible movie, but certainly the worst of the trilogy.

Eh...I still enjoyed it more than Begins for some reason. I know I'm going to come off as hater (I love that movie to death), but the action was so much tighter and the spectacle and scope so much greater that Gotham became such a believable and fully realized world I was immersed to no end. The Joker and his actions obviously lent an even greater atmosphere to The Dark Knight, which also an expertly constructed plot, so that wins, but I think Rises shows just how much Nolan has evolved as a director in a lot of areas since 2005.

That said, there's no point ranking them really, since they stand together as a near-perfect trilogy (all imo, of course).

I really need to see it again. As I've said it moved at such an incredibly fast pace that I'm sure I missed a fair bit of important material, haha.

Fantastic movie. Loved it.

But the second one is still my favorite. To me, from best to great, it's Batman: The Dark Knight, Batman: The Dark Night Rises & then Batman: Begins in third. I'm picking up the trilogy pack (assuming there's coming one) on BluRay with these movies as soon as it gets released. Amazing trilogy.

Looking forward to: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Just watched it . I almost wept for Alfred. The ending was beautiful. I still prefer dark knight, but this was still amazing!

Just a heads up for anyone who is looking to get the Dark Knight Trilogy set which comes out this Tuesday. Right now you can order it from Amazon for $30 the regular price is $55 I believe. Not sure how long the deal will last so grab it while you can.

It is an Amazing movie, my second favorite after the dark night (of all movies) but considering the dark knight is the best movie ever made, its not really a dissapointment that the dark knight rises isn't as good. I don't really remember Batman Begins being around that status, but its been a long since I've seen it although i did see the Dark knight first.

I didn't expect it to top The Dark Knight, as it lacked Heath Ledger and filmmakers tend to run out of steam by the end of a trilogy, but it still disappointed me even by those standards.

This is the problem when you’re an exceptional, visionary filmmaker. When you give people something extraordinary, they expect it every time. Anything short of that feels like a letdown.

This quote does a decent job of explaining my complicated feelings on the film. I know I don't really have any right to be so disappointed; Nolan co. put their all into TDKR, and individual scenes can be mesmerizing. They just don't come together in a cohesive fashion that makes sense and ends the trilogy in a satisfactory way.

Anyway, I actually came here not to rant about the movie but to link to some insightful interviews Nolan gave recently:

It's not complicated for me. Miranda Tate had no backstory or development (well she did but she didn't), Joker wasn't in it, and it wasn't 4 hours long. If those were there the movie would have been perfect. Seriously, can you imagine how spectacular it'd have been if Bane, Joker, and Talia were all in the movie backstabbing and plotting together at the same time?

This trilogy mash-up trailer gives a good idea of what that would have been like:

It's unfortunate, but in the end it was Bruce's story, and it was magnificently told.
