Jesus christ, Jiggle? Really? Fuck that.
I thought the performances were great all around, surprised by Hathaway and while predictable I still enjoyed dialogue from Caine. I really liked seeing Gordon-Levitt enter the cave. Robin being a shitty character in previous films and TV shouldn't have anything to do with this. John Blake was a great character and was more poised to take up the Batman uniform than become the Robin we are familiar with. It was explained clearly how Batman was a symbol and anyone could take up the cowl.
I'm still unsure how I feel about Wayne living. I expected his death and while a little disappointed, I'm very happy for Alfred's sake. If they had set up Caine's little vacation tea spot earlier in the trilogy maybe it wouldn't have felt so forced.
Nolan managed to take some of the best from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight and put them in one impressive package.
