Re: The Official Rate/Review Thread for TDKR (TAG SPOILERS!!!) - Part 3
A lot of people seem to take issue with Bane being portrayed as physically superior and as a more skilled fighter than the older, physically worn down Batman that we got in this film, but honestly, I was fine with it. I think it only served to strengthen part of Nolan's message.
Batman's career is very finite, and inspite of all his prowess, he could only remain being Batman for approximately as long as any Pro athletes career would span, before the physical toll becomes too much. The body has it's limits...
