POSITIVES: Great gadgets Good Action scenes Michael Caine stealing scenes. Gary Oldmans tortured, depressed Commissioner Gordon. Awesome cinematography. The Bat-vehicles. Hathaway can actually act. NEGATIVES: Convoluted storyline. Bales wooden acting - he doesnt seem comfy as Bruce Wayne, and growls like a lunatic as Batman. No brainer compared to his role in the Fighter, where he was outstanding. its about an hour too long. Confused direction from Nolan. Too many liberties taken with origins and years-old characters. Bane talks like an asthmatic pensioner from East London. A ridiculous and needless side story regarding Catwoman. Banes origin and world view is never explained properly or adequately - its confusing. Obvious set ups for sequels. OVERALL: I havent really liked this series of movies. The only thing that made the last batman movie watchable was Ledger - without his take on The Joker it would have been boring as shit. This movie has the feel of trying-to-hard about it. I theres more Batman movies from Nolan, ill wait for DVD.
