There was no magic screwy edit in the final shots with the bomb. The close up of Batman's puss is like seconds before the bomb goes boom.
Yeah, but you're mistaken in the first place if you think a good movie has to "follow the rules" in the first place. Rules in art is such an arbitrary thing. Sure, they establish certain ground rules, but it's boring for the art form to say "you can't break the rules".
Great directors have been breaking the rules since the beginning of cinema. Kubrick, Kurosawa, Fellini, Welles, Murnau, Lang, Scorsese- they all break the rules and they do it on purpose. They innovate, and do things differently. Are you telling me these people "mess" up their films because they break the rules?
