Overall I defiantly liked it I would not call it bad nor did it really exceed the Dark Knight it was just so impersonal in scale which is what I think made TDK so great. Still Nolan has been getting SO MUCH better at directing action. I liked the Robin nod it made some of my more unflinching comic fans mad but well they're way to purist to enjoy anything not in the comics.
the ending seemed to happy. You can't end it on a bummer (batman being dead) but if they had cut on Alfed just looking happy off screen that would of been GREAT.
