That scene in Begins was 100% inspired by Miller's take. Batman turning cold and cynical just to get one over on Ducard for lecturing him about saving his enemies. What he should have done was saved him, but knocked him out cold and hard afterwards!
Totally agreed.

IMO that is ALWAYS a more satisfying ending. Just the same way that him catching the Joker before he hit the ground in TDK was.

In a way, Harvey Dent's death didn't bug me as much as Ra's, because it was an instinctual thing. It was saving a little boy. And it had a point to it.

Ra's death was a decision that he shoud die. A decision Batman shouldn't have made IMO, and one that didn't fit with the rest of the film.

'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
