It was a fast-paced fight that was going to end with one man being defeated, broken or dead. Perhaps it could have taken more time on the streets or up the stairs to City Hall, but I felt the length was fine myself, especially with it having to be broken up with Gordon's scenes.
Yeah, I really wish we had more time on the streets before Batman and Bane finally meet up in the middle of all the warfare. When you think about it, Batman has to take Bane out quickly when he does gain the upper hand. There is just too much at stake.
