Nolan definitely tried to put too much into the film, but even if Gotham needed more of a "voice", I feel the final product was still fine. It just sucks though that the next Batman film could have the chance of not having to go by an IMAX time limit and be better than TDKR because of what TDKR missed with its chances.
The downfall of IMAX, and really the biggest downfall of IMAX.
