OK, working through the thread and reading the comments and the discussion regarding heart...Chuck, I think you sum it up well. To me this film has much more emotional depth than Begins (which I love), but it includes both highs and lows. I too found the film hopeful and really connected with the theme of sacrifice in the face of evil.
I didn't think it played too long at all, but I've just had one viewing. I am pretty sure you wouldn't be able to rip 15 minutes out without making it too lean and losing a sense of scale.
