the story and actors (what I've seen in the trailers, and their track record ie. Tom Hardy [Bronson, The Take, WArror], marion cottilard, anne hathaway) appears to be pretty good, as far as what I know. They are continuing what left off at the end of The Dark Knight and wrapping up the story with this Count of Monte Cristo effect along with other things. It really does seem pretty solid storywise. I don't think there will be a dull part in the movie, every scene will be tasteful due to the variety of good actors and sub plots between them all.
