I don't think Blake's response to the Bat-swarm is even supposed to evoke such an emotional response from the audience as Bruce's did. Bruce Wayne/Batman is the legend, the passage of which should evoke a degree of regret. If we were invited to feel that attachment to Blake/Robin/Nightwing/Batman-Lite, we could fairly feel aggrieved that Bruce wasn't being afforded much respect.

I'm unsurprised to see claims of "tears" or "goosebumps" from those who can be relied upon to defend everything about TDKR, but I think, in this instance, that they might be missing the point.
