That's fine that you were completely invested. I was too but I mean no film can bring me to cry or tear up, well not Batman. There were several scenes that I said damn this is AMAZING cinematography but just left it at that.
YOU sir have not seen Marley & Me lol

Somebody help me out because i was lost in the film at the beginning! They were after bruce's fingerprints and how did gordan know bruce could get in touch with batman! Thats the sh*t that confused me. they only shared one scene together in the dark knight so i feel that sh*t was kinda odd. Bane knew who he was. Cat woman hearing bane call him Mr Wayne and towards the 2nd return of batman cat woman asking is your powerful friend envolved. it was just some points in the movie that wasnt adding up. then when batman told gordon bout the hanging a coat over a boys shoulder which was himself but still why did gordan sending the kid cop to wayne at first

One thing I didn't like about this movie is how much of a bi*ch Bane looks like by the end of the movie. For the first 2/3 of the movie he's fu*king k!lling it as the main villain.

Another part is that it didn't seem like Bane was really terrorizing Gotham.

There didn't really seem to be that same sense of desperation as it was in TDK except from Bruce's Perspective.

I like TDK more than this one but this one is still straight.

Like I've said about that video before...

If you have to SLOW DOWN the f*cking movie just to catch problems (that aren't really problems, because it doesn't affect how the scene plays in the slightest), then that's the VERY definition of nitpicking.

The scene still works for me, so I don't care.

gordon didnt know that, john blake figured out who bruce was when he met him so he told him to go see gordon. he showed up in gordons hospital wearing a ski mask

cat womans second comment was sarcasm.

gordon didnt realize until the end

Just got back from my second viewing. Saw it in IMAX this time, and wow, I loved it! All the things I didn't like the first time around didn't seem to bother me this time. Excellent movie.

It's not a pass... These are things that almost NO ONE would notice. The scene didn't register as "bad" to me watching it, and it felt smooth. It never felt as clunky as the guy in the video seems to suggest.

After seeing this film two times I have two seperate feelings..

On one hand I loved the acting in the film. I loved the character development and the introduction of characters, especially Bane. The film itself is great looking and I was especially pleased that they decided to have Batman in broad day light which isn't seen very often in Batman films. It made it seem life-like more than ever. I also loved Batman's journey throughout the film. It definitely had the feeling of Batman Begins, where you feel his pain and his fear.

On the other hand I'm still extremely let down by the rest of the plot. It felt like a carbon copy of other action movies. I'm tired of Nuclear bombs going off in cities and heros miraculously saving the day by either bringing them to the ocean or k!lling themselves to save humanity. Its old and played out and I feel that Chris Nolan is so much more clever than that. TDK was not only amazing because of Heath Ledger, but because the criminal aspect of it was brilliant. You didn't know what to expect. Half way through this film I knew exactly what was going to happen. Second I think that Nolan blew a huge opportunity in this film by not having Bane break Batman in the Bat Cave. To see him being attacked in the one place he felt comfortable would have been a sight to see and it would have given a bigger meaning to the torture he was given. Last I think that Alfred should have been k!lled by Bane. It just seemed like a great fit with the emotion between Wayne and Alfred. The death of Rachel in TDK was a emotional part of TDK and this could have been as well. It just felt like Nolan was scared to break the mold on this one.

With this being said, I think TDKR was a satisfying way to end the trilogy. It does have it flaws but it was definetly a great ending to an amazing series.

Good review....

two things..

One - This is basically Batman Begins...almost everything is directly related. from the Ghuls to plot twists to the time it takes to see Wayne in the Batman costume...prisoners released...citizens trapped in the city on a deadline...actual mastermind is revealed late after focus on secondary villian...etc etc...not that this is a bad thing...

Two - I thought Hardy's performance was great, but it was basically 2012 Darth Vader...not game changing like Ledger's performance...

I understand what you're saying about the cliche bomb and Bane in the bat cave but only thing is

1. I honestly can't think of another way where it would make it feel Bruce would HAVE to sacrifice his life, and especially on such a large scale. Even though it was cliche, it worked better for this movie IMO then any other time it's been done since it fit the plot so well. I felt it was worth it to use that cliche plot piece in order to pull off such a great resolution. It was a worthy sacrifice IMO.

2. As far as your comparison to TDK, you gotta admit, the climax and ending to this was ALOT better than TDK.

3. I would have liked to see Bane break Bruce in the batcave too but I think the plot benefited more from Catwoman betraying him and leading him to Bane only to regret it and then have Bruce forgive her later in the movie and go on to form a relationship with her. It just worked better that way.

Also the part that made it just as good as Bane infiltrating the Bat cave or even better IMO was where Bane goes " Do you want to see where we've located our lair ?" and then explodes the ceiling to drop the tumblers down and goes " under your precious armory " and the look on Batman's face when Bane pulls this magic trick off is priceless. To me that right there was worth trading the batcave for the sewer, along with it being the catalyst for Bruce and Selina's relationship.

I def agree that it was needed for the Bane scene but I think one that having Bane come out of the shadows and break Batman under the waterfall would have blown anything from that scene. I felt that Batman would have never trusted a thief like Selina Kyle to take him to Bane it seemed to easy. Once Bane said Bruce Wayne do you think Batman was surprised? That made him seem like a dumb a.ss in that whole part. Second it was necessary for his relationship with Selina, but putting her in the movie was unnecessary because he was forced to create their relationship and in the end who really gave a sh*t about them? Yea she looked fu*king hot, but it wasn't needed and Nolan had to change things to add her in. It was the League of Shadows vs. Batman. Started that way, ended that way.
