I got to see the prologue finally yesterday at IMAX, I have to say that i was totally blown away.
Despite what other people think, i loved Hardy's Bane voice and thought it suited the character well, at times it was hard to understand but i got most of the dialogue. Nolan has written some great lines for Bane which gives him an air of menace like when asked what would happen if the mask came off Bane replied with "It would be extremely painfull, for you". Some of the shots Nolan used were breathtaking and due to the incredible size of IMAX screens, it realy felt as if you were there. Bane and his men pull of an incredible plane heist where they connect one plane to another and abduct a Doctor into the other plane. Zimmer's score is slightly eerie as it builds up the Bane chant. While The Joker used psychotic ways to terroise people, Bane seems to be all about brute force. The heist itself is an incredible stunt which looks like it was done without any CGI. The sizzle reel at the end gave a taste of what was to come, with images of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Batman on the batpod, Bane and Batman fighting, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, the batwing and the finalshot which left everyone in awe which was Bane dropping a broken Batman cowl to the ground.
There is no doubt that July 20, 2012 will be an incredible day for bat-fans.
