Just came back from a 9 hours long Batman marathon. I really liked the film, although I do agree with some of my friends that it isn't as good as the previous batman movies. It certainly isn't some movie that is oscar nomination worthy. The characters are well acted in this movie, but I highly doubt that anyone will win any major award. It certainly can be a film that can be improved on. The weakness part of the movie is without a doubt the opening act, as it is really quite uneven. The movie did improve towards the middle, but I am certain a fair number of people would have a problem with it nonetheless. The scope of the movie feels really epic in my opinion, certainly more so than Marvel's Avengers. Nolan manage to involve me and the audience around me into the threat faced by the characters. We really felt that the city is really at stake and people lives can easily be lost. As for people who wants to be spoiled: [spoiler]Miranda Tate is Taila Al Gul. Batman manage to fake his death. Joseph character is Robin[/spoiler] EDIT: Got it. Don't know about the spoiler tags.
