    Go see it. Like right now. I'm not joking when I say this movie is right up there with "The Dark Knight" for best superhero movie of all time. It may be better than TDK too. The final fight between Iron Man, Captain America, and the Winter Soldier is something else. They just beat the ever loving **** out of each other. The kid that plays Spider-Man absolutely crushes that role too. I'll be seeing this again for sure.

    Saw the movie with my wife today.

    7/10

    There was a lot to like about the movie, but there were also a lot of holes in it.

    *spoilers*

    What I liked

    Action Scenes - the airport fight was great and well choreographed, but it did lack some tension. At no point in that fight did I ever think anyone of them were in true danger. It was a great fight though.

    Spider-Man - he was awesome in the airport fight. Stole the show.

    Black Panther and Ant Man - I was impressed by both of these characters. Ant Man was used really well in the airport fight and added some comic relief. Black Panther was done well and he actually could have been in it more.

    What I didn't like

    Zemo - very poor villian and no character development at all.

    Plot holes - too many of them. Why was there a camera in the middle of no where to catch the killing in 1991? How did Zemo know Falcon was going to tell Iron Man the plan and he'd show up? What kinda security does U.N. have in place for Zemo to be interigating Winter Soldier? Why did Zemo go through all that trouble to find the base only to kill the soldiers? How did Zemo set everything up?

    Not enough Capt America - my wife didn't really like it that much. She thought it keyed just as much on Iron Man and felt like an Avengers film. I agree, Capt America should have been the focus.

    All in all, a good, but not great film. Much better than Age of Ultron, but not as good as Capt America 2

    Good movie nothing great, like others have mentioned too many plot holes. Best part of the movie was the very end, the fight between Iron Man vs Cap and Bucky. The airport fight was just okay, nothing really cool or aww about it. BvS all day.

    What do people see in the Dark Knight? Genuine question.

    Chris Nolan, good script, top notch performance by Ledger, the fact that everyone else elevated their performances around him (as later admitted by Eckhart), excellent action scenes, one of the best car chase scenes I've seen on film, and very dark. Those are my reasons.

    Fair enough. Maybe it's just that I'm not a comic-book guy and not a fan of Batman's silly voice.

    Christian Bale was also the perfect choice to play Bruce Wayne.

    Im not a comic book geek at all, but i think we've all read at least one batman comic book in our lifetime. Bale in DK/Batman Begins is exactly who id picture as the real life Bruce Wayne.

    The Dark Knight Rises had soo much potential to top Dark Knight. It would have been so much better if they broke it down to 2 parts. Dark Knight Rises was good, but felt soo rushed.
