    I agree Sandra, it's a must see movie. I do love the ending. I'm still not sure if it beats dark knight tbh.

    Well i wasn't killed, and have to say the film was immense!!

    Catwomen was fantastic, bane started out a little weak but got better and better as the film progressed.

    9/10 p.s great ending!

    He had booked seats and wheelchair space so all good-he thought it was amazing too,though we both agreed that certain scenes did drag a wee bit.Overall top marks though.

    That was a complete let down.
    Kind of dull at the start, bored The **** out of me in the middle (one guy fell a sleep), picked up for a bit, got stupid, bored, angry annoying twist and ended.
    Walked out thinking it was ****.
    Home now and think it was ok but not worth the hype, some bits that really annoyed me.
    I think it needs a reedit and shrink it down to 2 hours, should be better then.

    great film. i really enjoyed it. and much to my surprise it didn't feel as if it dragged on despite being nearly 3 hours long. I must say tho the tom hardy - what a legend.. that guy can change his body like girls change shoes. he's back to his bronson esque size in this one as Bane.. the guy never ceases to amaze me.. top quality actor. top quality cast too.

    I saw this on saturday and came out very very disappointed!

    Big changes in the story and setting to the original comic book and even to the 1st two films by Nolan. The way they tried to make batman more human and make Gotham City part of a wider USA was rubbish. They kind of ruined the image of the Dark, dangerous, secluded Gotham City that you got in the other films. The Dark Night was portrayed as just a normal man in a suit and cat woman was not convincing at all.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the 1st 2 Nolan Batman films but this was not a good way to sign off the Trilogy. I am an 80s child and I still don't think you can beat the way Tim Burton portrayed Gotham City and the dark side to Batman in the 1989 film.

    took my fam to see it thought my 7 yr old would have been scared, from looking at the trailers but he was fine. we all enjoyed it.
    Have to agree not as good as DK the Joker was awesome....
    still a good film whats gonna happen i know Nolan is not making anymore of the Batman stuff? i see Robin near the end.

    Saw this at the BFI Imax which is just the best cinema I have been too, 4 of us went and watched all 3 back to back, DKR is ok, it finish's off the series nicely, its not as good as DK (although it was always going to be hard to match Heath Ledger's performance) and doesnt flow as well as BB. Cast is good, special effects are great, story is a bit slow in places and fragmented. Bains voice is annoying. I've now read Frank Millers Dark Knight returns and must say it uses elements of this very well. Overall worth seeing on the big screen (or IMax if you can) 8/10
