I wanted to love this film, was very disappointed.
what was cliche?

to me the entire film was the complete opposite of normal Super Hero films...

you want to know what cliche is? the villain stabbing Batman in the side and describing her entire master plan to him before he could die...THAT is cliche

Watchmen? the Super Hero's die...one right at the start...it was then shown that he killed a woman pregnant with his child...One is the Heros is 1000x more powerful than the rest...a nuke goes off...etc...it was anything BUT typical

Yeah, what the hell is up with villains revealing their master plan when dealing with protagonist with a history of always coming out on top in the end? Its like how Jack Bauer always figures out the plan behind the plan behind the master plan that no one else seem to be able to notice. You start to wish villains would just stfu, at least until their plan actually goes through.

Old comic book trope. They make fun of it sometimes because it was, and continues to be prevalent in the genre.

After watching the second trailer, movie is looking a bit boring.

I recently watched Dark Knight Rises again on PPV...I found it to be much worse than I remember

starting from when Batman walks up to Gordon on the ice, lights up his flaming bat symbol until then end, is just filled with cringe worthy scenes.

the entire giant melee fight...a giant fist fight (while everyone has guns) is almost like something from the old Batman TV show

Bane and Batman magically find each other in the center of huge fist fight

the stabbing in the side while telling Batman her whole master plan

Cat woman saves the day complete with cheezy one-liner


That whole scene is so awful, it damn near ruins what is really a great movie...I wish he would redo the end, because it really isn't good at all.

It certainly wasn't as epic as they wanted it to be. The movie felt hollow...especially as compared to the 2nd one.

I've watched the movie about four times and each time its still very entertaining. Its a three hour movie (i think) that feels like it goes by in half the time, a sign of great pacing and directing.

At the end of the day its still a movie about a grown man dressing up as a super hero to fight bad guys without the use of guns. I know Nolan grounds it so much that people expect a dark psychological drama, but only so much can be done without scrapping the Batman character completely.
