A flood of early reviews have begun to pour in for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. And while the rest of you will have to wait until midnight Thursday to lay judgement on the final installment of the Dark Knight saga, a few reviewers were lucky enough to catch a sneak preview of Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard running around Gotham City.

It seems like the general consensus is that Nolan and his team have achieved the impossible and managed to make a movie that lives up to the expectations of The Dark Knight.
