    It's always just been a discussion. Shame that attitude wasn't prevalent a few pages back. A whole lot of time and energy could have been saved.

    Still I loved it, a few people in here didn't. That's all there is to it, really.

    The wound still smarts when it's cold.

    I couldn't get passed the bat voice, I had to suspend my disbelief for most of the trilogy, but I'm not allowed to over batman/waynes voice.

    The whole LOS thing is adequately explained. Why he has super human strength, some sort of breathing mask thing and a posh English accent not so much.

    Also, he just a bit "punchy" for me. It's not that interesting (again, to me). Where the other villains all have cool tricks and plans and devices and what not, Bane is like a WWF baddie.

    I thought he was menacing and clever. The mask was also explained during the film. He wasn't super-strong either was he? Just rock fucking hard.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 16:47:04
    No more 'super' strong than Batman.

    He was a bit homoerotic if you ask me

    That's why I like him!

    I thought (one of) the worst things about TDKR was Bruce Wayne basically being a cripple, even without his back being broken.

    "Your legs are fucked, like, completely fucked."
    "If I wear this mechanical brace it makes them unfucked!"
    "So it does. Go and leap, Bruce Wayne, leap from buildings and hang upside down and all sorts!"

    I'd definitely consider miltary pressing a fully grown man over your head like he was a newborn baby to be a feat of super strength.

    But yeah it didn't sit right with me that he was essentially a throwaway character in the grand scheme of things. His demise wasn't handled well either for me.

    In the end punching defeated the puncher. Punch punch punch.

    Face-punching, though. Punching him in the body armour didn't really work out so well.

    I know, punching in the face? Who'd have thought to try that in a fight?

    Especially when there is a fuck off piece of equipment hanging off his face screaming "THIS IS MY WEAK SPOT" for the entire film.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:10:02
    Punching in a face whilst a load of men with guns just sort of stood around and let them fight one-on-one.

    I like the bit where he attacks a pillar for a good 5 seconds after Batman has moved. Apparently releasing one of the little pistons on his mask makes him blind too.

    God, I had to sit through this round my DC-comics-fan friend the other night ...

    ... actually gets worse on repeated viewings. Begins is the best one and Tim Burton's films were better anyway.

    I guess now that the facts have been revealed, we can now happily bring this thread to a close.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:26:06
    Fuck off with Tim Burton's films being better. Utter tripe.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:28:55
    Bane gets punched in the mask about 90 times during the lead up to the back breaking.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:29:26
    But he's not punching hard enough.

    Agreed. Dark Knight for me was the perfect batman film. Burton films nowhere near the level of Nolans.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:33:04
    what about schumacher's films
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:37:20
    I like the Burton and Nolan films for different reasons. Be interested to see if Nolan's films hold up stylistically as well as Burton's do in 20 years.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:39:06
    But Burton's films don't hold up stylistically.
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:41:23
    They really do. The effects and things like the fighting have dated, but the stylistic approach is extremely solid, especially in the second one. Admittedly the style is trademark Tim Burton, but it works well with Batman.

    For me Burton batman is the weaker comic stuff like death in the family etc. Good but not great. Nolan is like year one. Dark and outstanding. 
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 17:47:52
    Burton is more like Darwyn Cooke IMO, who I'd take over Frank Miller stylistically anyday.

    The Nolan films are inconsistent stylistically. The first has a much better sense of style than the second and third, which are both obviously set in New York, not "Gotham". Burton's Gotham has a real atmosphere to it.
