I personally found it to be the best superhero film yet, and I don't intend on seeing another take on the character for quite some time unless it takes up the Arkham plotline. I can definitely see how many would prefer The Dark Knight, but this is another film entirely. I loved how the film was split up between multiple characters; the suspense that it gave was seriously some of the most enduring I've ever seen in a film; and I think it was the perfect ending to the characters. I'm really into The French Revolution, (I had a geeky squeal at a reference to the storming of the Bastille) so perhaps I am biased, but overall I found this to be a remarkable film and probably among the best "Summer blockbusters" I've seen in the cinema. Bane may not have been as memorable a villain as The Joker, but he certainly had his moments and he was pure intimidation. His presence was certainly felt whenever his character was on screen.
I have to give it a 10/10, because I really enjoyed it and was absorbed into the plot in a way that few films are capable of sucking me into.
PS: Just for clarity, I am not a Nolan nor am I a Batman "fanboy." The only film of either I have seen thus far has been The Dark Knight, so take what you will from that. I definitely plan to research the character with some classic stories after this, though, and look deeper into the enigma that is Batman.
