after some thought, to address some of lefties points.

banes voices was awesome, tom hardy was great. i guess we just disagree on that. he was a fantastic villain imo.

i think i expect a certain amount of that non sense in a comic book movie. did the fact no one could make it out of the cave alive make sense? did the fact some people died falling and bat man didnt make sense? idk, but no more sense than kicking someone in the back and hanging them from a rope to fix protruding vertebrae does.

bombs in the concrete, didnt even think about it. or the 5 months.

lame special forces? if the govt could fix the problem, there would be no need for batman at all.

basically, a comic book movie, like comic book, at least ime, assumes a certain amount of gimmes for the sake of the movie. but the action was solid, the plot and twist were great, and it was a very enjoyable movie with a pleasing ending.

the only thing besides the end of bane and talia that i didnt like, was that he was called, "THE bat man." he is just batman, no fucking "THE." that shit irked me.

tl;dr movie was awesome.

First off, The Batman vs Batman...

 

"One day I called [collaborator Bill Finger] and said, “I have a new character called the Bat-Man and I’ve made some crude, elementary sketches I’d like you to look at.”  Bob Kane

 

Secondly:

 

 

1000

 

 

And this sits in my office:

 

1000

 

 

To some of us he was and will always be, The Batman.

 

That out of the way, I will believe any fantastic world you can come up with as long as there is an internal logic to the world and the characters act rationally within the context of that world. Or put into SF terms - shit gotta make sense.

 

Take the prison. I'll accept the prison, the guy beside Bats who provides all that convenient backstory, that it birthed Talia, and that it takes a superhuman effort to get the hell out. What I can't accept is that bloody rope? Why is it there? As near as I can remember the guy who ties you in should be able to belay you from that fixed point so there is no reason you would fall. Secondly, I have fallen off a rock wall and hit the hard end of a rope (maybe not that far). It hurts, but it doesn't kill you.

 

Why is that rope there? It is a distraction and takes me out of the scene. Why not just have sheer walls and if you fall it means certain death?

 

Enough of that type of thing (and a bad guy that wasn't working for me) and a movie loses me.

Yeah, sadly my name isn't George. I picked that up in an auction a number of years ago for $100.

 

To his credit Kane would give a sketch to anyone who asked, but usually he would draw Bats with a big smile in his face.

awesome pics.

i hear you, but for whatever reason, i just rolled with it. i have had movies where it was too much with the shit not making sense, but this was not one of them.

btw i think the rope was there so that you didnt die, but rather only were injured. i think those who died crashed into the wall and smashed their heads or something, maybe the guy holding the rope didnt give a shit? they are prisoners after all.

as to sheer walls, the idea was to give a false hope of getting out, i dont think sheer walls would give that vibe.

whateves, we could go back and forth on this if you like, but in the end, i think we just have different standards of how much shit has to make complete sense.

he was referred to as "the batman" in all three movies. both scarecrow and the joker called him "the batman" in the first two.

Re: the rockwall -

I think the rope was what was keeping people from escaping. Only Talia and Bruce ever got out of the pit, and it was when they had finally abandoned "fear" and were going ropeless. My impression was that the rope was set up there long ago to deliberately bait the prisoners into thinking it was a way out. It was, however, too short to make the jump at the "leap of faith" section and so no matter how far you could actually go, that rope would snap the jumper back, injuring or killing them in the fall. It just couldn't go far enough to carry you over the gap. So, once someone decides to jump without the safety of the rope, there's really "no" problem getting across.

This explanation has Christopher Nolan written ALL over it.
