Stating the obvious (again) here, I know, but the exchange between Bane and Batman before the 2nd fight still irks me a bit. What may be surprising is that it's not actually Batman's line that annoys me - it's a decent line, captain obviousesque true, but it does its job - it's the way their exchange is shot. I mean, I can understand why they stop when Bane delivers his line, but then they just stand around, looking like doofuses, waiting for Batman to deliver his line. I think that if they had shot the exchange from a different angle, it's pretty likely that some people wouldn't have complained about that exchange so much.

That being said, I still really enjoy the 2nd fight, especially when 'The Fire Rises' motif starts playing. True, I would've preferred the fight be a little bit longer, with Batman entering the scene via a glide from the Bat, kicking Bane on the way down, but I'm just being picky at this point.
