I wondered that also. The auto-pilot was supposedly fixed though so for all we know after we him get in the Bat he could've jumped out or something improbable like that ... I thought he was going to drop the bomb in the water but I guess he had no control of the rope or whatever it was hooked to.

I'm seeing it again tonight so I think I'll be able to pick up on a few of the little things I might have missed. Hathaway's performance alone is enough to watch it again.

Here is a pretty good Bane impression from someone on YT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL4u5c9hrYQ.

I know I said earlier I was glad Batman wasn't killed (and I am), but I didn't really care for him running off either. Almost like he ditched the city and people he loved so much.

TDKR was incredible, glorious, EPIC!

Nolan has completely nailed a perfect end to this series imo. Everything is EPIC - the score, the action, the emotional triggers - all EPIC. Action scenes were excellent and truly make this movie awe-inspiring to watch.

Bane was an excellent choice for a villian. This guy is pure malevolence. There are some particularly violent moments displayed by a man of pure evil which he thinks he's "a necessary evil."

Selina was "intoxicating" as I've read in other reviews and Hathaway nailed the character and made her own interpretation. Her fight scenes were very enjoyable.

JGL character Blake was almost like the heart of Gotham that wouldn't quit beating. Fine choice to cast him. Fox, Alfred and Gordon were as stellar as they ever were. Miranda tied in with the story well. I thought she would have had a fight with Catwoman but I'm alright with her fate.

Speaking of fate, Bale was excellent as Wayne/Batman and his bat voice was better, the fighting is better, and so is the emotion. Freaking loved the scene when he decided not to be TIED DOWN (climbing, flying free with no rope) in the HELL he was in - prison & personal turmoil; accepted that his fears can inspire to empower him). Bruce took a 'leap of faith' to RISE.

No single performance matched Ledger's Joker but this may be the strongest collective performance of the series. The pacing really on point I thought for such a long film. Love the ending.

Yes, this is an EPIC conclusion. I need to see this again.

That movie was so fucking amazing. Right now I'm probably too biased since I just saw it but its my favorite of the trilogy.

Edit: I was kind of disappointed that when Alfred was telling Bruce about his fantasy about the Italian restaurant that Ellen Page wasn't sitting there with Leo Dicaprio.

Loved it.

I thought Hardy and Levitt were brilliant. Hardy, especially. To showcase the emotion he had with just his eyes, so well done. Really, I thought the acting was superb from everyone. Felt like everyone stepped up their game.

Good story, great music.

Excellent ending to an incredible trilogy.

I absolutely loved the film. Good acting from everyone, great cameo from Cillian Murphy, Hathaway was hot as hell. Everything was wrapped up beautifully, and the emotion from Michael Caine was really touching.

On the weaker side; I didn't understand everything Bane said (I'll await subtitles on the DVD heh), and Talia should've had more scenes as the love interest and the villain. Too much on her being a businesswoman. Ra's hallucination appearing and evaporating seemed a bit weird. Should've just been the other prisoners telling Bruce.

Does no-one know they should crawl on ice and not walk?

Nah, he definitely survived because of the final Lucius Fox scene. It would've been at least slightly ambiguous had it not been there.

Yes.

I just left the theatres. Saw it in imax and loved it. An amazing epic movie. Still think Dark Knight was better though. That first Bane fight was extremely hard to watch lol. Bane just fucking kicked ass. End of the movie got better and better. I absolutely hated how Bane went from main bad guy epic badass to just getting killed/knocked out.

The scene where Bane no-sold all of Batman's attempts at offense was one of the greatest ever.

The dialogue was so good, and to see Bats completely broken was powerful.
