If anything, some fans were just left wanting more...but that could actually be taken as a compliment.

I'd say most people (most fans anyway not sure about critics) would've forgiven him if he got a little self-indulgent and let it go over 3 hours. I certainly would've. There's that pesky IMAX reel issue though.

Maybe one day we'll see some more stuff even if it's not integrated back into the cut. That reminds me, Ultimate Collector's edition this month! At the very least, we should have a new retrospective doc and Nolan/Donner interview up on Youtube soon, for those of us who will be resisting the double dip.
As much as I don't care for when it's done, TDKR would of been perfect for a part 1 & part 2. It would of fleshed out everything post Bane's speech in front of Blackgate so well, you're not forced to speed through the whole second and third act. Plus you can add a little more time for Bruce returned as Batman in the beginning instead of taking him out just as he gets back.
