Also why didn't the bad guys just kill all the cops in the first place, Ohhhhh even better why didn't she just blow up the freaking bomb as soon as she had it!
The main villains were defeated through luck and brute force.
Your not understanding the concept Nolan has put out. He didn't put it out to show much more superior Batman is to his counter-parts. He made the TDKR and the finishing touches about the problems bruce wayne had encountered and how his life was being controlled for his sense of lust for fighting behind the mask, how he lost himself and even though he knew he was lost he didn't want to admit that problem, his "life" made more sense as Batman.
Nolan wanted to show the fans how Bruce lived with Batman and what he was prepared to do, to "live" behind the mask, he was willing to die. If you cut out the ending and know that he fixed the auto-pilot" and for example if nolan had not put that ending with alfred smiling at his dream, you would know that Bruce chose to die as Batman, he was Batman he lost Bruce before he came back, he was never Bruce Wayne. Nolan was telling the story from a lost boys persepctive, bruce is the lost boy, he is trying to find his way home, but the "Batman" his alter-ego is stopping him from coming home, living his life. The struggles of Bruce Wayne is greater and that is why Nolan chose to tell the story this way, and for me as I seen the drama in this story unfold the ending was befitting the fall of a hero in the dark and boy that's lost that will never be revealed to the worl.
You keep talking about plot holes, yeah, like how he made it back home from the prison, or how the police force that was underground for long time was clean cut shaven. Also that daggarts plan was a plot hole, or that police showing up seconds after.. nvm you would have missed them plot holes seeing as though your stuck onto discrediting the film for what it is trying to show and not what you are seeing.
The real story is bruce wayn's struggle to accept him self as bruce wayne and accept the fact that the city does not need Batman yet, he won't accept it. The rest of the movie is to make up for the money spent and give the fans juicy scenes. I hope you will read this and really, please really next time just up and leave the movie theater if you went to sit down to watch a "waste of your time" moments after realising it. Your a hypocrit and I know most people enjoyed this movie, yet they give it poor marks for its execution when they miss the real story being told.
Thanks movie critics, your all so smart.
