Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec
Hmmm... I don't know . There are actual things that Bane says where you could say Talia isn't his sole motivation. It's never said that his main reason for attacking is Talia, but based on what the movie presents there is more than one big reason: His hatred for Bruce and his love for Talia. Those can be interchangeable.
Bruce's main reason for hanging it up is the 'Dent Act'.
That's it. He wants to be Batman because he can't move on from Rachel's death. If you feel differently then, to me, it seems that facts are being disregarded. He made what could be said is a halfhearted attempt to live regularly and just... gave up.
You can argue all day that it's lazy writing, and there are points to be made there. But we can't just disregard what was presented.
