Well you can disagree with my view, but just because you disagree or don't like it, doesn't make my argument simple. As far as performances go , I wasn't dismissing either one. I just found Bardem's to be more compelling, entertaining. Again, like it or not , that's how I personally felt.
As far as comparing characters , both characters are pretty thin as far as motivation goes , though Bane is reduced to a love sick puppy who in the end , is motivated to do what he does for Talia. Silva's motivation is also slight in comparison to some other Bond villans, but I found creepy demented character was far more entertaining than Bane.
