At the same time, I actually have really come to enjoy the ticking time bomb aspect to the climax. I've come around from being overwhelmed and numb by the final chase, to kinda liking it, to flat out loving it. It's unbelievably intense and climactic. I also like the bomb there because it keeps Bane from simply being Che Guevara with a mask. I think in a film like this, while I love as much complexity as possible, it's also important for there to eventually be a clear distinction between good and evil when it comes to hero and villain. Batman's a dark character, he's gotta have darker villains.
I'm in that camp also. The Bat is one of my favorite things about TDKR now.
