What impresses me about The Dark Knight is how little it feels like a superhero movie. It's dark, realistic, and very smart. Rises is all of that, but dialed back a notch. Its darkness is less potent, it's far less believable, and it lets its fair share of cliched plot points in. It's still a very cool movie, and I don't regret spending $12 on the ticket, but it didn't blow me away. The attention to detail is a little lacking.
I have to say though that Catwoman is insanely well done by Anne Hathaway. Whatever doubts you had about her being able to pull it off, leave them behind. Complex as a character, perfectly acted, and super babelicious, she's easily my favorite part of the movie.
