I thought the action was mediocre. And that's putting it very nicely. The fight scenes were choreographed and edited horrendously. And I just couldn't stand the exposition heavy dialogue. People go on about The Dark Knight being subtle and intelligent? It's not. It's about as subtle as a sledge hammer and it treats the audience like idiots. Highlighted by Gordon's monologue at the end of the film explaining the entire theme of the movie as though we're too stupid to understand what just transpired in the last 2 and a half hours. It was like he was breaking the fourth wall, talking directly to us. The same could be said for a lot of the dialogue really.
And I just didn't care about Bruce Wayne/Batman... at all. He was uninteresting and a bit of a douche, really. I liked Harvey Dent's story arc, and I enjoyed Joker's scenes. But yea, that's about it.
