Re: A very positive review from a guy who hated the first 2 films
I would say most people liked the third (though only a small portion loved it). The hate is mostly from the fan community that didn't like the direction Nolan took the series. I personally like all three.
I also find it odd this is the one you buy Bale as Batman in, because he spends the least amount of time in the costume in this one. Really, the second Nolan film is the only Batman movie where he spends the majority of his screentime in costume. It actually is the first time I forgot he was wearing a costume.
