Re: The ferry should have blown up
It shouldn't. Its thematic implications are clear.
The scene is a mess , bloated , even if it aint that long. I would call it the worst section of any Nolan movie. Its just a slug in such a kinetic movie. Great idea but im not fond of the execution
Looking back at it , its funny how they react exactly the same way like they did in Rises . In complete apathy. They just follow the rules and simply cannot react. Until the prisoner decides to throw it away "Give it to me, and I'll do what you shoulda did ten minutes ago".
Its cool to see the same sort of apathy in a bigger threat and grander scale in Rises.
