Adam - This seemed a bit uneven while viewing. The action scenes were very intense but there was a lack of a wow factor that the past two Nolan Batman films possessed. I did however really like the conclusion of the film which was surprisingly satisfactory and surprisingly open ended.
Scotty - Batman fans please listen before you yell at me for what you are about to read. Dark Knight Rises is the Return of the Jedi of this Batman series. The film was epic and long but at times was slow and diluted. This is not to say that the film was not good, it was, but out of the three this was the weakest. There are many aspects of the film I enjoyed, such as Banes character and even Hathaway's version of the Catwoman, although it was lacking in meow factor. TDKR is too long but I understand why, there is too much going on and a lack of focus on what is important.
Griff - The Dark Knight is a good movie and it's definitely a nice end to the Nolan trilogy. At times it felt like it got pretty heavy handed with some of the social commentary and some of the actions scenes were pretty cliche. The movie is bolstered though by strong performances from Joseph Gordon Levitt, Anne Hathaway, and Michael Caine.
