I respect your opinion Shikamaru. And as you know, i love the film and think the whole thing makes sense.

Anyone could have done what he had done, no? He's acted in better performances, Bane is nothing to write home about.
Hardy is a one of a kind actor. I cant think of any actor who would have been able to create a different voice and express himself as much as he does through his eyes, walk, etc. We most likely would have got some generic tough guy voice mixed with the actor in a mask with zero expression in the eyes.
Bane , next to Heath's Joker is my favorite character/villain in any comic book movie.
