But how? It's the perfect bookend. Batman passing the mantle off to Robin. It ends like it began in many ways. Begins opens with daylight, a young happy Bruce with a female friend, with his whole life ahead of him. But that gets cut off. Then it goes to the first time we see Bale's face. It's a closeup and he's trapped in a prison with sadness all over his face.

Then the trilogy ends with Bruce as an adult in a open space during the day. An older happy Bruce with a female friend, with his whole life ahead of him. The last shot of Bale is a shot in the distance and he's smiling. At peace. For the first time since he was that 8 year old kid he's actually happy.

How does anyone who love the character of Bruce Wayne and this trilogy HATE this ending? It will baffle me until the day I die.

I think "epic and beautiful" is a bit much describing TDKR's finale, though.
I honestly get tears in my eyes EVERY single time ive seen the ending. Which is probably over a dozen times by now.
