Re: In hindsight what changes would you do
Yea I rather like Rachel, too. I feel bad because perhaps before TDKR came out, I felt that Holmes had somehow given the better performance. o_O What was I smoking??
In retrospect Gyllenhaal was very good in the role, and Rachel's character was a big part of the saga and Bruce's development. He paid the ultimate price for being Batman.
But in a superhero movie it's quite a difficult feat to have people care about a side character like Rachel.
A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know the world hadn't ended.
