It didn't need to be said, just like 'So that's how that feels' didn't need to be said - well, maybe less so than that example.
In short: Silence can sometimes be more powerful and emotive than a one-liner.
The movie, for me, had a recurring problem with over-explaining the wrong things while not better explaining other things that needed it.
The bolded part is what it essentially boils down to. I don't really have a problem with the line, but the truth is, it's way too captain obivous-esque. Take, for example, Batman's comeback in BB when he arrives to stop Ra's after he's activated the micro-emitter: "It ends here" is perhaps just as simple, but sounds way more badass.
I think that particular Batman/Bane scene would've been so much better had Batman glided down from the Bat and kicked Bane out of nowhere. Would've been a great shot/sequence, me thinks.
