Finally saw this last week, and I thought it was fantastic. I didn't have a problem with Bane's voice, found him quite easy to understand. Probably not quite as enjoyable as The Dark Knight, but then Rises didn't have anything on the epic level of Ledger's performance. But Hardy was a damn solid bad guy, and managed to bring a surprising level of emotiveness considering you can't see most of his face.
Though the cafe scene at the end was a minor cop out. Otherwise, great
