Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Blake receiving the coordinates, then heading towards the waterfall as John Blake, would have left me much happier. It would have instilled a sense that it's "Batman" that continues on, and not the possibility of Robin instead. The other thought behind the Robin reference, is that Blake respects Bruce and "Batman" too much to simply replace him, so he'll take on his own entity as "Robin", and that put a horrible taste in my mouth as a way to end this franchise.
I agree with you on that. Time will tell how much it affects my view of the film, but overall I was pleased with the story and how Bruce's story in particular was wrapped up. That and all the Knightfall stuff was incredible. John Blake did feel like a bit of an unnecessary character to me... for me his most important scene was his first one with Bruce. That was good stuff.

But yeah, I can understand how that ending would sour the film for you Yurka, though I'm bummed to hear that.
