Bane was a straight up monster. His death was purely a good thing and a welcome relief after 2 1/2 hours of him dominating everything. Hence Catwoman gets her one liner. The truly cathartic moment is when Batman defeats him.
The twist added a layer of humanity to Bane. He was not just a terrorist but someone who acted as a guardian to a woman since she was a young child.
Back on to his death- TDKR established Bane as Batman's toughest foe. In my opinion he should have had a death scene/end scene as epic as the ones in BB and TDK.
I would have forgiven it had Talia's death scene not been done with laughably bad acting.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Spidey flick I've always wanted to see.
I laughed, I cried, I cheered, I smiled. Thank You so much Andrew, Emma and Webb for making such a special film!
