The more I watch it, the more disappointed I become in it...
-the "thematic" victory that most stated above about batman escaping the pit etc. etc.
-Banes barrage when the mask is broken
-Banes swat of batman after mask breaks
-Batmans "Sparta" kick of Bane
Bane was not allowed to lose with dignity, they built him up as such an imposing force and presence throughout the movie and then in the end he lies beaten in the fetal position making a darth vader like gurgling sound. The blast by Catwoman isn't bad in itself, its only bad only because it punctuates the complete 180 the character has done since the beginning (the ferocity, the power of belief as alfred says).
Not allowing Bane to lose with dignity lessens Batmans victory. It really bothers me because I really like Bane as a character and was really enjoying this version that Nolan had built, but in the end he slipped up. Love the movies but like all good things it still has its blemishes.
