Indeed. At first I felt like there wasn't enough of Bruce in the pit, but after seeing the film a few times; Bruce had enough time down there to "rehab" himself, it's what's going in Gotham that I found problematic.
I would have loved more focus on the cops being hunted, have maybe a close call with one of Gordon/Blake's fellow officers almost getting killed. Hell, it could have been Foley almost getting killed, and it would have made the character all the better.
