I like it plenty, but 'masterpiece' is pushing it. Deep, ground-breaking, thought-provoking for it's time? Yes. Flawless? Far from. In my opinion.
I've only seen Part 1, but I have to agree. It's really good but I wouldn't call it as great as some are. There are things about it that cheapen or mute some of the incredible aspects of the book, like the internal monologue for example. That was something that wouldn't have worked if it was implemented as much as it was in the comic but annexing it altogether in the film removes some of the insight into the characters, not just with Bruce.
