Okay. So... let me get this straight. They had to TAKE THE CAR APART in order to ATTACH A TRANSPONDER TO THE BOTTOM? Wouldn't it have been simpler to just reach down there and stick it on there?
And another thing... if there's going to be a transponder at all... why bother telling us they have the blueprints? They don't need blueprints to stick a transponder on there!
And as long as I'm picking... Penguin said they were gonna turn the Batmobile into a ticking time-bomb or something like that. I guess he was speaking figuratively but it was sort of misleading. I thought they were gonna blow it up.
Yeah man. But ya know that's a Burton thing to do. Not saying I like it. imo that kind of silly running around yer @$$ to get to yer elbow doesn't belong in a good Batman movie. And speakin of Penguin . . . why take away his penchant for using a wide vocabulary. I 'kinda' liked Burton's 'Sewer Monster ' Penguin but it just made the character feel too unfamiliar for me.
