We get an epic scene of Bane becoming juiced up Bane and then we get another epic fight between those two for about 5 minutes. Batman beats him somehow and catwoman escapes from Talia and then batman stops her and gets rid of the bomb. But venom should have been used
Venom seems a bit too cartoony, even after seeing Dent being able to stay alive for half a day after half his face was burnt off or Bruce being able to walk after a couple of months after a vertebrae mishap. Venom itself is a point where you get too comic-booky when you'e dealing with some kind of liquid that enhances your physique/size/etc. I really loved the idea of the medicine that pushed his pain at bay, but I hope there was just more explanation on that, but for the most part, we are told enough.
And Talia stabbing Bruce, more than anything, is just a parallel to how Talia was stabbing someone with a knife inside the Pit who took her mother and then she ended up stabbing the man who killed her father with a knife as well.

And with using Coleman Reese, it would have made the character come out to be someone that wasn't just a coward in TDK but someone that Bruce could rely on without someone knowing the secret just disappear and not show up in the third film.
