The best movie in the Dark Knight trilogy, but that's really not saying much. Overbearing, plodding, and way too serious for its own good. Convenient plot holes help move along an otherwise meandering story, and Tom Hardy's Bane is a laughably cheesy caricature of a villain that was already steeped in goofball comic book mythology. Fortunately, TDKR has some stupendous actions scenes that partially make up for the rest of the film.
Here's hoping that Nolan is truly done with Batman. It's just too bad we probably have a similarly dreary Robin movie to look forward to in the future.
