Only one person ever escaped the pit. That was hubris on their part. Especially when Bane explicitly says "impossible." It makes a lot of sense. Just because you choose not to see it doesn't mean it was poorly done.
A lot of the arguments I see are people ignoring what was presented in the film. I get that people don't like the film and thats fine. But when people start making up their own ideas of what the characters should do, I have to roll my eyes.
