That's because it was like watching the comic book pages. It worked. The problem with Rachel, apart from being badly written, was she wasn't a comic book character. As a Batman fan I never really appreciated that Nolan chose her, some character he made up as the main love interest for two movies when Batman has so many love interests in the comics.
Then there's Talia, who in TDKR had none of the qualities that made Talia a good character or a good love interest in the comics.
