Indeed. I had this experience second time around - second time has been my best experience with the film so far. I got emotional during the scene of Batman towing out the bomb most of all, thinking if Batman was to die it would be something like this, saving everyone. Third time around seeing the movie, I'll admit I had seen it enough times and wanted a break from it. I found myself leaning closer to my feelings after seeing it the first time.
