I haven't read through the thread yet so some of this stuff has probably been brought up already.
I saw it last night and I loved it, it was intense, brutal and epic. I thought Bane was ferociously awesome and Anne Hathaway was perfect. The action set pieces were really cool and although a LOT of plot happened I didn't find it too confusing to follow.
However, I did feel it was fairly predictable (not that that's necessarily a bad thing, the way it happened was awesome). I felt the ending was a bit of a cop out.
The ending...obviously there was a lot of speculation that Bruce Wayne would be killed off and Blake would take his place. For the film, it made narrative sense for Bruce to sacrifice his life to save Gotham, which I didn't have a problem with, and it was a great moment when Blake discovered the Batcave and the platform rose.
I like the idea that Batman is an enduring symbol no matter who is under the cowl. Buuuuuuut then they had to show that Bruce is alive and well with Selina. It just seemed like Bruce's whole reason for living was to be The Batman, but then suddenly he changes his mind and realises Alfred was right.
Which isn't to say he doesn't deserve a break, but it seemed like he was resolved to die as The Batman, and we never got a glimpse into his psyche to see why he changed his mind.
As I was watching it I thought they may have left it ambiguous and just have a shot of The Batman at the end, so you weren't sure if it was Bruce or Blake under the mask.
It was a bit on the nose that Blake's name was Robin, I don't think there would have been any harm in calling him Dick Grayson.
I loved the first fight between Bane and Batman, and the reveal that Bane was right under Bruce's armoury.
A bit that I felt was glossed over - one minute Bruce escapes from the Lazarus Pit, the next he's back in Gotham where supposedly a close eye is being kept on people entering and exiting.
Poor Bane - manages to help Talia escape the Pit, gets a messed up face, excommunicated from the League of Shadows, does a load of work for her, and still ends up in the friend zone.
Overall thought I thought it was fantastic and I left the cinema feeling pumped.
