    Ok I may get the label of "Mr positive" but whatever, I have to say I thought there was a good varitey of action in TDKR, and I've left off the two Batman vs Bane fights as they were fights as opposed to full action sequences.

    So vote away folks and feel free to give your reasons! :)

    I just love the striking image of the whole police department in the city coming after one lonely Batman. Just one of the "wow" moments in the film.

    I would say the first chase when Batman officially comes back.

    Why aren't the fights considered action sequences?

    The whole Wall Street sequence, from Bane taking it over to Batman coming back was one of the highlights of this trilogy for me, and probably my favorite action sequence in any of the films.

    Watching The Bat soar in between skyscrapers as it did was one of the grandest spectacles I've ever seen in film, but choosing between the massive spectacle of Bane vs Batman fight on the stage of a thousand extras fighting around them is almost impossible for me.

    Probably Batman's first return with the bat-pod and Bane's men. I enjoyed all of the action though; it definitely had the best in the series and maybe in Nolan's career.

    I meant to vote for Batman's return on the Batpod/police chase, but I accidentally voted for the plane sequence.

    Definitely the first appearance of Batman following the stock market assault and then finishing with the flight of the Bat. Just awesome awesome awesome. I was as excited as a little kid. The buildup was phenomenal, and so was the payoff. I must say, that the bldups and playoffs were so well handled, and just compounded as the movie went on, both in scale and quality, to one of the most satisfying third acts and endings I've ever seenon film.

    Absolutely. The events at the stock exchange followed by the chase after Bane's men then followed by the police chasing Batman then ending with the reveal of the Bat. All so excellent.

    Honestly, the whole chase at the end was really awesome I thought. Just the missiles going nuts, every character up until this part doing a job, just--wow. I'm surprised more people didn't drool over that one. I thought it was incredibly tense.

    The last chase was surprisingly lackluster IMO. I was really into it, but it wasn't as exciting as the other action sequences during the film. Not to mention the other 2 films.

    Batman 's bike chase when he returns. The image of all those Cop cars chasing him down on the streets was awesome. I was hoping to see him get hunted by the Cops at least once in the movie.

    I don't care what action scene it was. Whenever The Bat was on screen, I had a huge smile on my face. I love that thing

    I got chills when Batman was messing with the lights in the tunnel. It was so uncanny and rewarding to see the Batman bring the dark with him.

    It has to be "the return" sequence.

    I loved the stock exchange takeover, the angles that captured Batman with the entire GPD in the background, the departure on The Bat, and it even had one of the best lines in the movie "boy, you're in for a show tonight, son."

    That entire sequence is as if Nolan is a little kid playing with his action figures, only on a much grander scale.

    I voted for the return of batman. That was so well done.

    The first fight with Bane was very intense, as well.

    Batman Returns. It was perfect. Batman calmly getting on his bike as he's surrounded by what looks like the entire GPD, not to mention they played the 'Escape from Arkham' part of the BB score.
