It just left me feeling flat. Stylistically I loved the way it looked, but I just didn't get anything out of the movie itself. I've never even felt the desire to see it a second time, which for me is as much of a sign that I don't like something as there is. Movies I like I'll watch over and over (in the theater with some, I'm not even talking about at home). Dark Knight I saw four times on the big screen. Ditto for Batman Begins. I think I saw Avatar five times. I'm not really moved by reviews (although I read them) or by popular opinion, either. I'm not going to go see something a bunch because somebody else likes it...
As far as Dark Knight goes, I just like the movie, although I don't think it's some kind of religious experience or high point in cinema. I just enjoyed the sum of the parts. Everything worked for me and I'm enthusiastic to see the final act of the trilogy.
