i lol'd at the rope one. also, speaking of pit ropes, if they've got a guy holding a rope that can stop a climber from falling, why doesn't that guy just pull on that rope to raise the climber over the gap (or at least help extend the jump)? that rope guy is a dick.

As I just saw TDKR this weekend, I was LOLing.

Is he actually holding the other end for counterbalance? I thought the rope was tied to that eyelet that it ran through. Otherwise, batman wouldn't have fallen all that way and snapped his spine out of place again (well, unless rope guy was just being a dick again).
I think he was just there for ceremony.

Maybe I was too drunk or just not paying attention but I don't get why there had to be a jump in order to climb out of the pit at all.

Sort of like a video game. There was no direct way up. You had to climb up half way to the ledge. Jump to the other ledge- to make the way to the top.

The rope was there to offer false hope. It prevented you from reaching over the ledge.

I thought the explanation for why nobody would put the Bruce Wayne and the Batman deaths together was because Crane was executing the wealthy, so everyone assumed that Wayne was either killed at his house or executed by Crane's court.

I realize the final cafe scene was cinematic and all but couldn't Bruce have sent out a couple emails?

"Alfred: Alive. Later."

"Lucious: Fixed your autopilot. Alive. Later"

But he just left them hanging. Dick.

I liked the movie but the twist with the woman at the end was entirely unnecessary. It would have been better if Batman fought Bane to the death and Bane remained the boy in the pit. The truck could have been driven by any henchman. And the stab wound did nothing to hinder Batman anyway

The movie needed more Scarecrow, mainly because I love Cillian Murphy in the strongest, non-gay way possible.

Why use a great actor like Tom Hardy, then cover his face and alter his voice? They could have had Gilbert Gottfriend play Bain Capital.

I found the twist to be great as it fit with Batman canon. Batman fighting Bane to the death isn't good either as Batman doesn't kill people. That's Batman 101.

Cute. As for #10 "paralyzed subjects return to 'Peak fighting condition' within days", I guess they missed the part where it was ~5 months from the time Bruce Wayne was tossed into the pit to the time he escaped, which is enough time for a herniated disc to heal.

How was it a twist? There had been reports of casting for Talia for a long time, and then in the middle of the movie while Bruce is in the pit you get information about Ras's child. Yes, the most direct revelation of it was from a hallucination, but you know they wouldn't have put it in the movie if it was going to be irrelevant.

The Joker one was funny, but somehow I don't think he'd be in a local jail. More like the psych wing of a maximum security federal prison.

1) Apparently he was in Arkham, which only had one prisoner. Him.
Everyone else was taken to Blackgate.

2) My wife turned to me during the rope scene and asked, "So is that just that guys' job? Standing there tying ropes on people all day. 'OH, I have a 4pm appointment for a rapist and 5pm for a murderer.'

3) Speaking of which, when Wayne throws the rope over after getting out, did he just release a bunch of killers and rapists on the city it's near? what a dick.

4) It's jail, he was a rich boy and can't move.
They totally raped him while he was hanging there.

He might have had the idea that even murderers didn't deserve to be in that type of place. Also, he may have liked rape.

He did say "rape" twice.

Didn't somebody say "Its Bane's prison now."? Who knows who those prisoners are or what crimes they committed? Perhaps they were just people who go in Bane's way.

I believe they mentioned it was Bane's prison now. So he was releasing Bane's enemies. Of course, he thougth Bane was the head of the League of Shadows, which was a group that executed prisoners in Batman Begins, so maybe he didn't think the plan through. On the other hand, that rope may have been attached to the safety rope that the prisoners were using, so maybe he trapped all the guys who had helped him down there and took away their hope of escape.

Why did Batman/Bruce Wayne have to live? He should have died and the whole you-thought-i-exploded-but-i-didn't-and-somehow-end-up-with-catwoman-a nd-alfred-saw-me-alive-at-the-cafe-so-everything-turned-out-okay was kind of dumb.

The whole rich chick who Bruce banged was really Ra's kid, Talia, and it was her who escaped the pit was a good twist.

If you like Tom Hardy rent or netflix "Bronson" his performance is right up there with Hopkins as Dr. Lector. Dude is freaking creepy!

In retrospect, that wasn't much of a twist if you were paying attention to the dialogue.

Everyone assumed that it was Bane that escaped, but Bane himself told Batman at their fight in the sewers that he didn't see light until he was a man. The one that escaped the pit was a child.
 
2012-07-30 03:46:55 PM
I was so confused. At first I hated the cops, because they were corrupt. Except for a few good cops. Then, I found myself cheering for the cops as they marched down the alley in a large mass into the teeth of the automatic weapons. Luckily, the bad guys were poor shots and only a few cops got hit.

Correct. He only:

1. Drives and flies military hardware with explosive, high caliber ordinance that he uses to attack things
2. Throws super sharp piece of metal around and people
3. Uses explosives as a distraction or to create a convenient door
4. Uses explosives to destroy cop cars with cops in them
5. Uses explosives to destroy parts of buildings without looking for civilians below
6. Drugs people of different biometric profiles with the same dosages of drugs
7. Puts people in the hospital with extra-legal beatings

But killing? *no way*. That just crosses a line.

It's kind of hard to cite the 'twist' as good because it's canon and then state Batman doesn't kill people as Batman 101 since that's not accurate either in canon or non-canon. Like the whole "Batman never uses a gun thing." He attempts to avoid doing so, but so does about every other DC superhero out there. The only reason it's ever made an issue with Batman is he seems like someoen that would be more inclined to off a perp now and then. Why? Because he has no problem at all crippling them, endangering children via the Robins, endangering Gotham citizens as a whole with explosives, etc.

I just loved him on the Batpod in TDK blazing away with the canons in a traffic jam blowing up cards left and right to make a path for himself. Yep, he's completely opposed to killing anyone.

You should tell Batman that, he straight up shoots the shiat out of that truck driver in the end with the guns on the Bat-pod.

The rope didn't fix Wayne, it was that palm strike to the spine. Everyone knows that's how chiropractic medicine works.

I have had a herniated disc, but have never had a "vertebrae sticking out of my skin". I did notice it was 5 months, but still 5 months to go from cripple to better than you were before. Add to that the fact that he wasn't working out and training the whole time he was gone. It is ridiculous and probably the single dumbest thing in any Nolan movie. Face it, Nolan phoned it in.

The anchor point was well below the ledge. After that point you need slack, the distance Bruce falls being equal to the amount of slack needed to reach the ledge. It kept them alive and offered hope... Nothing more.

I thought it was great But fr a different reason. He tells Selina he believes there is good in her and puts his trust in her. Her coming back validates this trust... Validates putting so much on the line for the "good" in the people of Gotham. Plus... Dat ass needed more screen time.

Right about the point in TDK where they have the ferry scene I started thinking, "We get it, can we get on with the ending." I started feeling that much much sooner with TDKR.

The movie wasn't boring to me as much as it just felt too long because it tried to do too much if that makes sense. I think all three are about the same length, but I can watch BB over and over again, whereas TDK has worn on me over time. TDKR simply wasn't a tight script. I'm not talking about plotholes or nitpicky shiat either. Just too many characters doing too many things without a really strong relation between them all.

It's about what I expected to be honest though. When I saw the list of characters they were adding...all of which needed to have an arc contained within a single movie...and then all those returning that needed their arcs tied up I just had a bad feeling.

Then again, wrapping up any trilogy and making everyone happy is basically an impossible task, particularly where the first two movies did so well and people would probably like up to see 10 more of them if he kept making them.

True, but it wasn't exactly flattering of the whole right wing approach either. Batman torturing Joker in the jail cell got him disinformation that led to a blown up Rachel and burned up Harvey. A fact that was lost on most right wingers that just adored that scene when the movie came out.
