Still it just comes off as unrealistic and inconsistent to even Nolan's own Batman. One minute, he seems like he knows the score then the next he just crashes his bike because he can't get a grip on what he wants to do. Wouldn't it have been easier if he just drove past the Joker and stop? I know it makes for good cinema, you have to be dramatic, but that one scene still bugs me.
