    Apparently there was a planned scene where Joker in Arkham notices all the inmates getting let out of their cells, and he eagerly jumps to his door only to be left behind and remain locked up. He goes and sits back down on his bed.

    If Joker had been let out, he would have been too much of a liability to Bane's plan most likely.

    Suspension of disbelief, please notice you're all watching a comic book movie.

    If a film fails to operate within logical and logistical boundaries it has itself set, it deserves to be criticised for it.

    I honestly just think you're picking this apart too much.

    Would the film be a better film without some of these issues? Disbelief has to be suspended, absolutely, but there's a limit, and since that limit is set by the film-maker, if they outrun themselves it pisses me off. You'd better believe some of these things will have annoyed Nolan when he saw the final cut too, unless he's just burned out on it by that point.

    I quite liked it...but I feel it's necessary to ask this as people in this thread are pointing out some flaws: How does bane eat? :coffee:

    :lol: That is a great question.

    Considering he took the mask off for just a second and was crippled with pain I imagine not through the mouth. If we are being serious then probably an IV or perhaps he hooks up to an IV of drugs to kill the pain while he eats through his mouth. It is so mundane I doubt it was ever given much thought.

    Buda-bump!

    Bought the Bluray last night, enjoyed the heck out of it. Noticed a couple small differences from the theatrical cut, but nothing major. The one I noticed most was in the scene just before the end where Batman gives Selina the Batpod, they took out the tiny bit of banter where he's explaining to her how to use it before she revs it up and goes "I got it," with her usual sly expression. It's probably in the extras. :lol:

    Again, loved this movie. Considering the running time, it flies by.

    Watched this last night with the wife. We'd both loved the last movie but with this one we both agreed it was one of the stupidest and most ridiculous movies we'd ever seen. In a rare event I actually took to my Facebook page to rant about how idiotic the movie was.

    It didn't ebb and flow as well as the first 2. Certain elements felt forced and too many errors for the budget size.

    I absolutely hated all of the fight sequences: People getting shot and nothing happening, hand-to-hand combat looking incredibly choreographed (in a cheap way), and I wasn't a fan of the plot device at all.

    Still a good movie, but not up to snuff IMO. :shrug:

    Saw it 3 times in theater nonetheless :lol:.

    Same here, saw it three times in theaters and by the third I swore I'd never watch it again as it definitely unravels and the details allow you to pick it apart more and more

    Watching it again, the build-up and first half of the film are just so exciting for me. After the first big fight, you know the one, it have a feeling it just falls apart. Let's see if it holds together better this time.

    Bane's voice rendered the entire movie a comedy hit IMO. I watched the movie on DVD with some buddies of mine and we just drank and laughed at the absurdity of it. Selena Kyle's characterization was shit, and Anne Hathaway should accept her place as the girl-next-door, not a seductress.

    I was hoping for a movie even better than The Dark Knight. I was let down. Fucking Batman movies.

    you know, batman movies haven't had the greatest track record. nolan put them in the right direction, he just doesn't know how to shoot fight scenes and doesn't care about plot holes.

    Finally found a video that sums up almost every reason this movie failed for me:

    All the complaints I had pretty much. :lol:

    The only additional one is how every one-on-one fight looked SO FAKE...

    they also could have been less lazy and called "robin" Tim Drake instead of John Blake
