Hell, the most interesting part of the movie was set in Nepal before Bruce became Batman. It had the most lines that were cringeworthy and the weakest villains. The microwave emitter was pure movie science too. Plus, the climax was a rip off of '89.
I've seen BB recently, and it has lessened in my eyes. Microwave emitter was your typical plot device. It vaporizes water under metal pipes but doesn't do so to humans?
Rachel wasn't terribly written as I remembered, but Katie is still awful. The trio's arc in TDK and Bruce's arc in TDKR were both better than Bruce's arc in BB. I would have preferred a real world location for the Narrows. Bane, Two-Face, Talia, and Joker were better villains than Ra's and Scarecrow. And technically, it's also the least impressive. TDK and TDKR were better in all categories.
