    I don't know what these people are talking about! This movie is GREAT! I didn't even want it to end. Chris Nolan gets better and better. You'll have to wear you're thinking cap if you want to watch this one though. So if you're into mindless entertainment - you probably won't like it.

    This was such a long movie, and like Dark Knight, it just kept going on and on, and then the ending was so stupid and even then they threw one more twist at youy. Greatest Movie, HA that's a laugh, Try Biggest Joke, just like Dark Knight was.
