Don't get me wrong, I would have liked more scenes between them, but I liked what he delivered.
I liked the moral stuff in Nolan's version, but it didn't really connect with the romance aspect. There was barely any romance between them in TDKR. I'm not saying that's a bad thing per say, but if they want to hint at Bruce ending up with her, the audience needs to believe it.
The funny thing is Chris did a much better job with making us believe that Cobb and Mal cared for each other in Inception.
