    Bryan Lienesch98 - Might be EVEN better than The Dark Knight, which is saying something. Just such a brilliantly executed film from every angle. Once again Christopher Nolan sets the bar very, very high.

    Jim Carrier95 - I can't wait til the next one. After having Scarecrow, The Joker, Two Face & Bane...Riddler, The Penguin, Poison Ivy & more are still left and you have the emergence of Robin & Catwoman coming out in full force for the next one. This was great, but it's only going to get long as Joel Schumacher has nothing to do with it.

    Dan O'Neill95 - Though it may be very long, The Dark Knight Rises delivers on every spectrum: acting, writing, directing, cinematography, score, etc. It’s exactly what you could want in a summer blockbuster, and superhero movie, but it’s also exactly what you could want in a film that’s saying “adios” to all of its characters that it’s introduced to us for the past 7 years and it’s a legacy that I won’t forget. That’s for damn sure.

    Steve Habrat95 - A commanding tour de force that will almost make you forget to breathe. A thrilling conclusion to one of the greatest trilogies ever put on film.

    CinemaVisitor Erik90 - An epic and apocalyptic conclusion for the trilogy but Bane and Catwoman get lost in the slightly long build-up for the grand finale.

    Donnie Guthrie90 - The only thing holding me back from giving this movie a ten, is the acting. Marion Cotillard who played "Miranda" was pretty sub par in this flick. I also am hesitant of giving it a 10 because of the ending, great suspense leading up and then Marion Cotillard ruined it... Excited for the next one though! Crossing fingers.

    Nick Ledgerwood80 - The internet community, for reasons I do not understand, has given the movie an ungodly amount of shit. I watched it as part of a movie marathon with both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight and, framed in such a way, I found it to be a worthy conclusion to Nolan’s Batman saga. Where there aspects I didn’t like? Yes. But there were way more things that I loved about it. I think Tom Hardy was amazing as Bane, that the plot twist was pulled off very well (even if it was a bit predictable), and that it closed out the story nicely. I especially loved that the ending was, in my opinion, open to interpretation. I for one like to believe that Wayne did not survive and that Alfred is merely living out, once again, the fantasy that he has put forth earlier in the film.
