Yeah, I agree. The inclusion of 'No', surprisingly, makes a dramatic difference. Your suggestion would've been much smoother.
I also feel like maybe the line exchange was too slow, it felt like it was part of the fight choreography rehearsal or something.
They like stood around waiting to throw the first blow until the line was finished, like 'here's step 1, here's step 2, now you try to punch me'.
That seems kinda silly to me, unnatural, stiff. If I were the director, I would've had Batman still approaching as Bane throws the remark at him, and Batman replies AS he reaches Bane, mid-attack.
Bane isn't one to 'stand on ceremony' after all, and I suspect Batman is very keen to that by this point.
