That's how I see it. I totally understand why some felt it was anti-climatic but for me it was more of a "**** yeah! serves him right!" moment.
Back when the promo pics of Catwoman with a gun came out and people were guessing that she will kill Bane, I remember absolutely hating the idea. But after seeing the movie and seeing that Bruce/Batman already defeated Bane before that anyway, I was completely fine with it. Also, as discussed above, I thought it was a fitting death for Bane. A quick and humiliating death for someone with a massive ego.
