So I finished watching it after watching it in two parts. At 2.5 hours long this movie felt like it dragged along at times, and to some extent was a suitable end to this trilogy. Though the characters are portrayed a little differently from the comic books, it still came together pretty well near the last third of the movie. It should prove interesting to see what may be done for a follow up movie with the way this one ended. But since Bale is done with Batman I am not sure how it will go, and with the director also being done with it I am not sure we will get to see a Batman this really well done.
One thing that bothered me about the movie was the voice of the Bane character. I did not have a great deal of trouble understanding him on the blu-ray as a lot of people complained about. It is just his high pitched voice was so damn annoying and not suited to the character at all that kind of ruined things for me with the movie. Still a good movie though. If I could my rating would be 3.5 stars out of 5 and not 4.
