Batman: The Dark Knight Rises

Saw the movie and liked it a lot. It has a good villain, which is always a good start. Bane is every bit Batman’s equal, which keeps our hero in peril throughout the movie. Selena Kyle made a great foil.
I loved the big scene between Bruce and Alfred. Batman doesn’t get enough credit for its humanity.
I had heard some people complain that Dark Knight Rises was too long. I wonder if some of the people saying caught the midnight premier and were just sleepy. Even at two hours 45 minutes it didn’t feel long.
The ending worked for me. If you want to see an example of someone either calling or leaking the series end 9 months in advance in almost every detail, read this Cracked article from November, 2011. But see the movie first.
