Some wonder why loads of people call the flick lazy.
Do you honestly mean to tell me you could've seen Ra's making his attack on the city as public as Bane did? Trying to make a point about the rich/poor social divide as emphatically as Bane did? Drawing out Bruce's execution as long as Bane and Talia did?
Because I honestly can't, considering the very down-to-business nature of Ra's plan in BB. But perhaps you can enlighten me, it may be that we saw two different movies.
