Nothing in Bale's movies come close to this. Nothing in Nolan's films scream Batman more.
This part always bothered me, to be honest. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bruce have a collection of giant mirrors outside that reflected the Batsignal into the room? It just seemed a little too ridiculous for me. I think the shot is beautiful and the best part of that entire movie but the actual logic of it weak (if I am remembering it correctly).
