I get you don't like it. But calling it nonsense is just sour grapes and exaggeration. It may not be how you would have preferred the story to go, but it makes sense in the context of the story. Whether you like the story is another matter, but I think the plot has a sounder logic to it than other fanboy movies this year (The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man and Skyfall come to mind).

You could really say that about most comic book stories. I agree that it would have been better if it was only class warfare. However, the only way to even make it barely semi-believable was to add the nuke to the equation, otherwise the US government would have stopped Bane in like a day. It does fall on an old convention of the genre. Bt so do the comic books on a monthly basis. I accept the nuke as a needed Macguffin to do something that we haven't actually seen done in this genre on screen or page before. It is the ideological scope/bent of Bane's plan and its personal impact on Bruce--something that allows him to grow beyond his pain in a way he never has in the comics--that makes it unique. That is why it is the only Batman story of its kind. For that I can appreciate it, even if the nuke is uninspired.

But really, you clearly hate this movie. Why do you post about it for months? I was severely disappointed in the new Spider-Man movie and do not spend a lot of time on those boards.
