I don't feel like you could have possibly had such good acting if the whole project was phoned in. Certain aspects of the story might have been phoned in, but I also felt certain aspects of BB/TDK's storylines were phoned in too. The Alfred and Bruce relationship in particular was done way too well to say this was just done for the hell of it. And I'll be damned if anyone accuses Hardy of phoning it in. That guy put everything he had into it.
