If I hadn't seen TDK, and I came here to get an idea of how good it is, I would be extremely disappointed when I ended up watching it.
As sad as this is, I completely agree with you. And I love TDK. Personally, it's one of my favorite films but I also am a huge fan of the realism route. The film is close to flawless but only in the eyes of those who are probably all of the above....Batman fans, realism fans and Nolan fans.
Anybody who is not a fan of all 3 may very well have some opinions about the film being too realistic, not enough action or whatever. I know the film is not perfect but it's the closest thing to what I've always wanted to see in a Batman film and I know I'm not alone.
