Improved, still the same!
Funny Joker quote there.
I'll wait for the DVD. Not planning to see it again (theaters are far from where I'm living and I got no lift). But damn, I DO WANT to see it again!

And when you leave, you wish it would continue, eh?
Things like this have to happen...

I like to party
Totally agree! I saw it yesterday and am already planning on when I can see it again. I'm going to go buy "Batman Begins" today! Already own "The Dark Knight" and watched it 3-4 times over the past week! Nolan is The Man!!!

Without spoiling, I must say that... despite all comments about Bane's height and weight compared to Batman... Nolan gave us an AMAZING portrait of this terrorist. Not really an "enhanced" human but someone who has been trained in the most drastic ways! With a more human stature, he was physically superior to Batman in all terms of fight and logic. I don't think the "full" mask would've helped. I don't think he would've been that scary but with the physical acting and "eyes acting" from Tom Hardy, we really got Bane!
He takes so much place on screen, he's physically imposing, his gaze when he's full of rage... the people being scared of him all the time... the fact he didn't care of anything but his goal. Hardy was right : brutal! I think it's something Nolan often does in his movies : he makes good use of his characters' gaze. From Scarecrow in Batman Begins, Ra's al Ghul, the Joker (of course), Harvey Dent and now we're entirely focused on Bane's eyes.
I don't know if you will agree with me on this point... but I would not be surprised if, in the future, we see this version in the comic books : scary gaze, Venom mask (or anesthetic), physically powerful despite his look aside of Batman... but again with the same high level of intelligence! With Bane, it's about ending everything! I've been reading an interview of Chuck Dixon (co-creator of Bane with writer Doug Moench and artist Graham Nolan) and he said it's not exactly the character they created... but Nolan understood what Bane is.

I went to see it last night. It is a great film, better than Batman Begins (an 8/10 film) and nearly on the same level as Dark Knight (a 9/10 film). All of the cast are great, the Bane and Selina Kyle characters are both developed well, and even with its flaws it has ended up being the best film of 2012 so far.

Well, i must say, after just coming back from the cinema, what a pile of shit. Terrible film considering how good the others were.
It was all shot in the day time, there was hardly any batman in the film, just Wayne being a crippled little bitch, and when he was fighting he lost every time. Banes voiceover was a laugh, wtf lol. Turns out he's a little bitch too... he's nothing more than whats her names puppet. Harldy a super villain.
They had an amazing foundation with the first two films. This could've been epic. Nearly wished someone would've fired a gun off in the cinema I was in to save this disappointment.

This is pretty much spoiler free I believe.....and I'd be genuinely interested in hearing my points being counter argued......
Have to agree .. it strayed completely from the first two. The film felt set in modern day in a contemporary US culture.. this left him looking a prick fighting in a batman suit in the middle of the day. Can you imagine cbs and fox news broadcasting those events! ! Lol. The reveal of the true villain was just random... it could have been literally anyone. Cat woman was a bitch. She effectively set the chain of events in action that led to the centre crisis to begin with.. and then I'm supposed to give a shit that she has one redeeming scene?
So Mr taken is banes dad ? No... turns out they are much closer in age !
The dark night ended with batman sacrificing himself for the better good. That was completely undone as he then contrived to set himself as the false hero.

Oh... and where did banes mask come from? It holds in the pain? Is that it? Oh....it also amplifies his voice twice as loud as everyone else's and has Lord of rings setting which he never turns off

i just had a shit and watched it as it flushed down the toilet. It was more entertaining than this sorry excuse of a batman film.

And i wouldn't call it a batman film.
There was no darkness to it. All day time, all Wayne/b-man getting beaten up our crying, terrible disappointment.
