I wanted to see it on the big screen....looks like I'll have to just wait for the Blu-Ray with my busy schedule.

This is a tough one for me. I think The Dark Knight is a better film, but Rises was a far better theatrical experience.

If folks have seen the first two, then the third is worth seeing to round it off at least the once I would say.

Thanks for the spoiler for those of us who have not had the fortune of seeing it yet. Now I have no need to buy the Blu-Ray.

Dark Knight was just too close to perfect.
Rather Dark Knight Rises just had too many irrelevant scenes that does nothing for the outcome. I personally just didn't feel the climax was much of climax at all and the ending was rushed. I think it was so cliche'. I've seen far better.

If Dark Knight was a 10 then Dark Knight was a 6 for me. Not necessarily bad but I've seen much much better.

Batman Begins 8/10 (Pretty Good)
Dark Knight 10/10 (Rocks)
Dark Knight Rises 6/10 (I've seen Better)

When I think about the Big Blockbusters of this summer and which ones were worth it and which ones weren't, Avengers Tops the List and Dark Knight ends the list. I was excited to see it but ultimately it was a mess of a movie. Love the Catwoman and Bruce. See it if you want to fill in the gaps and complete the series sure, but in this critiques opinion it's not a must see. I'm looking forward to September 25 2012 myself just for my own home enjoyment.

Well, if you read the earlier posts you would realize that more was given away with the film. And plus, the title itself should tell you that he is rising and once again back to Gotham to stop Bane. So, technically I didn't give anything away unlike some of the earlier posts. Plus, as you can see this is a poll, so of course it would include all three movies and the discussion regarding them. That being said, I recommend you see the movie and still buy the Blu-Ray.

If I can still catch it at the big screen...hopefully perhaps in the next couple days, I will. It was my goal to see all the Batman trilogy on the big screen. Alas, I won't be able to catch it in IMAX.
