Re: The "realism" thread
I'd say it ended up being a rather bad or flawed part of an otherwise good movie. But still, that's the kind of thing we want to avoid if at all possible, right? Now some things are so indellable to the character(s) that they can't be dismissed even though they make no sense(Superman's disguise, for example).
