We loved it. Saw it in a (thank God) proper 2D setup: Bright screen, vivid colors, awesome looking. The dark scenes were not muddy and I cannot imagine how much I would have been hating seeing those sequences in 3D. Ugh.
What a BLAST! It was like I was 14 and the comic books I was reading had come to life on screen. Even my wife was completely into it, not just lusting after Hemsworth, but genuinely engaged in the story.
Smiles non-stop, ear to ear and yeah, the Hulk stole the show and created the two biggest laughs, one that almost caused me to pee out my bursting bladder.
My one complaint... The rude family behind us that had kids, all under 6, who wouldn't shut up or stop crying. The parents were beyond rude and it was really annoying.
By the way, we were at the 11:30 AM show and it was 90% full. On the way out I looked into the 3D showing and it was full as well. That never happens around here. Never. Ever.
This movie is gargantuan and Dark Knight Rises is going to have to be plenty incredible to be the #1 foilm of the year.
Oh yes, I left when the trailers started and came back in whey finished.
And I am going to see this one again, for sure, one day this week when the kids are in school.
