OK then...

I saw all three films back-to-back-to-back last night at the theater.  My local multiplex had the Trilogy on their two largest screens and our screen was sold out.  I had only seen Batman Begins one time before and it has been a while since I had seen The Dark Knight. After watching all three, I can say that the second film is easily the best and my favorite.  The performances, not only of Heath Ledger but of Aaron Eckhart, just put this film over the top.  I do like the way all three films tied together as a trilogy.

All in all, I enjoyed the film and loved seeing the trilogy the way I did.  Will be trying to go and see it again in a few weeks after the crowds die down a bit.  I might like it better seeing it removed a bit more from the superior second film.

Maybe there should be two separate threads here, one for the movie and one for the shit that happened at the theater.

and I have some PMs asking the same thing... Locking this one TEMPORARILY while I do the split!

Just got out a little while ago. I liked it, but didn't think it was great. WAAAAAAY too long for one, especially given that at the end of the day, the crux of the threat is just another bomb. Bane's voice was at times difficult to understand, and the rest of the time just silly sounding. I hated that Batman had just dissapeared for eight years, and everything righted itself in Gotham just fine. And if Bruce wasn't Batman for 8 years, why was he still limping?

That and plenty more bothered me about this movie. Although I did enjoy it. I just think simpler (and shorter!) would have been better.

I saw it last night and I enjoyed it, though it is the least of the trilogy IMO. It does have some plot holes as everyone has stated. Bane is a weak villain too, especially when compared to Ledger as The Joker. And Tom Hardy sounds like Sean Connery in the movie. :P

Despite that, it was pretty good, but I still like The Avengers better.

P.S. Anne Hathaway is hot.

Hey! I'm close friends with Robin, or Joseph Gordon-Levitt, one of those.

On the plus side, my friend Jim didn't get cut out of a movie again, so, well done him. :)

I thought Bane was a pretty good villain.  One of the best scenes in the movie is his first confrontation with Batman.  It's also the best action scene with Batman, too, which is where I thought the film was weakest.

And yes, Anne Hathaway is superhot.

Ann Hatheway was very sexy as Catwoman. I was very glad they made her a formidable fighter, but never did a fight between her and Batman.

I didn't feel its length at all Darth Geek. Mostly because I never even got the urge to check my watch. Also, I didn't hear you complaining about the bomb in the Avengers movie.... I feel that what's important is that Bane and his plan are carrying on motifs established in Batman Begins. Honestly, I don't know why Bruce Wayne was limping. I might be wrong, but wasn't he limping when he ran back to the bat pod at the end of TDK? Seriously, I don't care about ancillary details. I'd rather the film respect my intelligence and allow me to make reasonable inferences. Honestly, would answering those questions make the movie any better? Because if they did tell you, I think you'd just be like oh... okay, and that would be it.
