Re: The Official Rate/Review Thread for TDKR (TAG SPOILERS!!!) - Part 3
More than anything, the movie put emphasis on the overall message of the trilogy. Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up. It's no question that by this movie Bruce wasn't the young, built ox that he was in prior movies. Bane certaintly had the advantage physically. Batman got his ass whooped in the first fight. He picked his spirit back up, brushed it off, and went back out and gave it another go. He won the battle for Gotham because of his spirit. The movie really does have some fantastic messages and really a good overall plot.
