Agreed. It's got too many flaws for me to call it a masterpiece. It's a good movie.

Oddly enough, I prefer TDK's third act, lol.
Seconded. The final clashes with Joker, Batman taking out the SWAT teams to save the hostages, Gordon's family being held hostage by Two Face, and Batman's sacrifice for Gotham are more compelling to me than the chase the bomb finale, Batman's fake death, and "Robin".

Exactly. A testament to the greatness that is TDK. It really broke some barriers. As Sam Raimi said, it upped the ante for the superhero genre.
