My main gripe with the second act of TDKR is everything we see during Bane's speech should have been further explored. It feels like everything slowed down far too much post Bane's speech. The stuff with Bruce in the pit should have been the slow and brooding material, while what is happening in Gotham should have been all out war, no pun intended.
Bruce's arc at the pit is the only thing that's stopping me from completely hating the 2nd act. TKDR is just... strange. The middle part dragged but, yet as a whole, you feel like TDKR could've been better if it was longer. So, basically, I feel like it wasted the minutes of the 2nd act.
