Re: Lack of impact in Batmanīs appearence scenes
There is one scene that really didn't have any oomph to it: Batman appearing on the frozen river after Gordon lit the flare. However the rest of his scenes were great. Either improvements from his first appearance at the docks in Begins or on par with it.
"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
