There's a thread but it looks like its for linking professional reviews, so I started this.
What did you think of the movie, as a comic fan?
I just came back from the local midnight release. I LOVED how they incorporated all these different ideas from he various comic storylines and made it into a cohesive two hour and a half film. I always see batman fans hate on Nolan for apparently straying too far away from comic lore, but I thought they did so well here. Threw us fans so many bones. Killer croc reference! There's a line from KINGDOM COME (as far as I know anyway, that's the only time I've read batman say it). The Talia/Bane twist was awesome. Heavy no man's land influence obviously. Dark knight returns also. I went into this movie expecting a standard/"original" plot , but I feel like what we got was a mash up homage of the stories we love.
Can't be happier about the ending too. BRUCE GETS A HAPPY ENDING!!! Who saw that coming? Robin John Blake too. So happy about how it was left open but also provided absolute closure.
Damn. I feel so content right now.
