Re: Tom Hardy as Bane XXX
This scene is easily one of my favourites in the trilogy. I think BB has the best story, TDK is the most technically impressive (in terms of execution), and TDKR has the best 'one-shot' scenes like this, Bane's Blackgate speech, Batman's return, etc. And everything about this scene in particular is pitch-perfect. The lack of music, the sounds of the ounches, give it a much more visceral feel than if they had gone the other way and made it much more slick.
