Actual wins are probably not in the cards, given the competition.

And I have to lol at the notion that the NolanBat movies are "realistic". Or that Nolan is in general a "realistic", verite-style director. He isnt.
I agree. They may use real world ideas as inspiration, but the execution of them is not realistic. Especially in TDKR.

I never saw that. How did he manipulate him to do what he wanted all through the movie? Especially considering Ra's vanished for most of the movie after the training segments were over. By the time he resurfaced we were into the climax of the movie.

Bruce went to him looking for training and guidance. When Ra's tried to coerce Bruce into something he didn't want to do, namely murdering someone, he rebelled.
