I think with Bale people were expecting more somehow because they'd seen him in things like American Psycho. But like someone said earlier, a lot of the time the heroes performance is subtle/understated and ends up under-rated because there are those that seem to think good acting means showing extreme displays emotions or playing a wacky or evil character.
That's why it's so often the villain that everyone raves about being amazing. Like Bardem in Skyfall for example.
I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.
"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
