Unless you are not looking at it correct or did something incorrect with your search then that doesn't sound right. I bought tickets 1.5 weeks ago and looked at various times for both Fri and Sat at Richmond Silver City and most times were at least 80% sold (not counting the bunk seats in the front). You sure you aren't misunderstanding the difference between available seats and taken seats?

Yea IMAX is virtually full. Slim pickings on the back section , but tons of seats in the front if you like tilting your head.

if dark knight is a 9...this movie is a 9.2

darker...grittier..lots more action (maybe a little too much even?)

just a note...watch batman begins again before you check this movie out...dark knight backstory doesnt play as big of a role. I watched it last night and you can make much more connections this way

My ratings would be (since we're directly comparing a series, I'll use a larger scale, which I normally don't like to do)

BB: 9/10
TDK: 9.2/10
TKDR: 8.7/10

Got back a couple of hours ago from a batman trilogy marathon at scotiabank and I've got to say it was a masterpiece. An epic conclusion to a brilliant trilogy. I've got to see it again. But next time on an AVX or IMAX screen. It's that good. Spent 8 hours and 20 minutes in a theatre, 11 hours total if you include the time I waited in line. But it was hella worth it.

Batman Trilogy - 10/10

Saw it on IMAX at our company screening. Overall it was a great movie, just not as good as the second one, only because Joker was so portrayed in it.

definitely multiple viewings for this movie.. the only one that is worth this summer IMO


fucking loved people's reaction in the theatre when you first see Batman in this movie.. crowd was actually clapping.

i think it kind of drag a little too long, TDK had better pacing.

I had huge expectations for this movie so I went to see it during midnight release.

The movie was pretty entertaining but it was a big let down, disappointment, whatever you wanna call it. I was very unfulfilled. But it is understandable in the fact that the 3rd movie of a trilogy rarely is the best one.

Compared to the last two films this one has nothing on them.
I was disappointed in Bale's performance (I'm a big fan of his films too) but for everyone else they were excellent (especially Michael Caine).
I'd list the many things I'd change if I were Nolan (even though I love Nolan film's) but I don't wanna spoil the movie.

-Film focused too much on Gordon-Levitt
-Not dark enough
-Some scenes were a bit too fast paced
-Was not as intimate or emotional
-Lack of mindfuck surprises or twists that I always see in his films

Villain could not live up to Heath Ledgers infamous Joker. The tension in this movie was just not enough for me.
The hype made me expect epicness to erupt during the movie but expectations =/= reality

It is still a MUST see though

Not true. There is a twist and I didn't see it coming. Plus there are a bunch of surprises.

I suppose, but it was almost obvious for all those things to happen.

Your first point - if you know the story it's obvious
second point - although a surprise, not a big one
3rd point - easy to see that coming
4th point - easy to see this coming as well..

anyways, we're all entitled to our own opinions and those were just mine alone. I think I expected too much =D

I thought the surprises were awesome and well done. A little long but in the end it was good.

Thank you for Asmodeus's post. I thought I would get ban hammered if I wrote anything negative but man, I did not like it. Dark Knight was really character driven, Joker and 2 face did a great job, character development was great (this one, I was not happy at all about it), new toys were introduced, gadgets were awesome but this one... there was none that was a shocker at all.

I didn't think there was any huge point in the movie that wow-ed me at all. People do say this was much more story driven, how batman gave it all so it was situation, environment based but meh... was not impressed. There were a LOT of flashbacks which was very different and I thought it didn't flow with the story at all.

Dark Knight i watched twice in the theatre this one, I wouldn't even try to rewatch it after the blue ray release.

Loved the movie. Thought Nolan tied up the trilogy pretty well. My favourite of the three by far.

Great movie. I can't recall much from TDK but I think this was the better movie in terms of entertainment (which is saying A LOT). From a technical standpoint it's hard to judge without seeing them together and consciously looking for those things.

This movie reminded me a lot more of Batman Begins. Not only for the obvious reasons of it having lots of references to the film and plot, but in it's style. I felt like TDK was a different movie than BB, but TDKR was sort of both of those with it's own little pizazz. I can't wait to see it again. On 2nd viewings I find many movies to be better and overall I get a deeper appreciation.
