Re: Why is everyone slamming TDKR?
I thought the bridge scene with the orphans added a lot of intensity to the final chase.
"The situation has changed! You're orders are out of date! Now, I'm a cop like you and I'm walking out there. Please do not shoot me!"
Am I crazy? I thought that scene was highly emotional and served to bring Blake's arc to a climax. I don't think the ending would've worked nearly as well without that scene. On top of that I think it just adds this sense of bleakness and desperation to the final chase. I give Zimmer a lot of the credit for making it all cut together smoothly and steadily increase in intensity. To me the whole climax of the movie is perfection (minus Talia's death scene). Tension builds on top of tension continuously for what feels like a good 20 minutes, until we finally reach a somber ending that relieves all the tension yet leaves us feeling unfulfilled...until the final part of the montage where everything just comes together beautifully into a soaring triumphant ending.
Idk, I guess I always felt this movie was paced pretty well, in that I never felt it dragging. The slower parts feel necessarily because I'm still catching my breath from the insanely intense parts that precede them. TDKR and The Hobbit are about the same length, but honestly TDKR feels more like a 2 hour film and The Hobbit feels more like a 4 hour film.
