Alfred says something like "the only reason I didnt call the white coats blah blah wasnt about grandstanding" and Wayne says "Its not" in his Batman voice.
And each time he spoke after that his voice slowly went back to his Wayne voice. So I was able to see(hear) the transformation from one extreme to the other.
Thats when I realized he (as Wayne) is forcing it (as batman) so the voice sounding forced took on a different meaning. umm, hope that made sense

I can't beleive you guys are complaining about it sounding "forced"

IT"S SUPOSSED TO BE FORCED..... Bruce never talks like that ever, and to change your voice that dramacially, your going to have to force it..... he talked like that so when he questioned and talked to people as Batman, no one would have any idea who he was...... plus, if someone grabbed you, pulled you up 10 storys, and was yelling at you, what would scare you more, and harsh, deep, pissed off voice, or a voice that sounded normal, Batman uses fear as a weapon, and making his voice animalistic, is one of the best ways to top off the fear..........

Cap his teeth?

What's wrong with them? They look good enough for me.............and his Batman voice is fine the way it is. I just hope he has another scene like he did with Flass again.........

Gawd I love that scene
I think Retroman was kidding.
Atleast the way I took it, like gangsta cap his teeth in gold or something.

I think ya'all are missing the point about the forced voice.
We know he is trying to sound scary. What we mean is it sounded silly scary at some points. As in if someone was talking to you like that you would giggle even if they were hanging you by your feet 10' up.

It's not milk we're talking about here

Batman's voice is supposed to be scary and "forced", to put fear into the criminals and to keep his secret identity, er...... secret . Bale said he portrayed Batman as an animal when in the suit and his Bat-voice was awesome IMO

'Scary' and 'forced' are not synonymous: one can sound scary without being forced, and one can sound forced without being scary.

I meant that what some people here perceive as "forced" is actually rather natural. I don't think Bale's Batman voice is forced, for me it is deep,scary,raspy and very animalistic. I wouldn't have it any other way and I don't think it could be improved upon from Bale or anyone else for that matter.

Okay here we go:

Bale's performance should undergo a single change: His Batman should get better.

I don't mean his portrayal of batman should get better. This was the FIRST batman movie (well besides the TAS films) where I liked the Bruce AND the Batman. I loved his elemental fury. I loved the raspy bat-voice. I loved the intensity of the stare.

I just think Batman's obsession level should increase and his fighting should become even more efficient. He's been batman for a little while now. He's getting better.

So often they use the "should I keep on the mission or should I quit and start a family or get married etc" device. I hope they don't do that. I want Batman to be an obsession story. I want Batman to be worried that he might go too far, not that he'll want to quit and get married. But that's all in the writing.

I'd also like to see him scare the bejeezus out of somebody just by staring at them, but I'm okay if he doesn't do that, because, as I've said before, that's not really Bale-Bat's style. It would be cool, though, to see him by the end of the third movie have become so complete and terrifyingly badass that that's all he has to do.

You people nitpicking the lighting are out of your minds. Completely out of your minds, you're picking apart Oscar nominated cinematography (a comic book getting Oscar nominated for cinematography is pretty extraordinary). AND the ASC Awards. They got it right, it's a brilliantly shot movie. I hope Wally keeps doing what he's doing because he knocked it out of the damn park and I'm sure he will again.

What would you like to see stay in his performance?
Umm... As long as he dosn't start acting like Adam West or George Clooney thats fine.
What could he improve on?
His voice
What do you feel he should get rid of?
The 'sounds like he's been smoking for 20 years' sound in his Batman voice.
What should he add?
Maybe he can talk Goyer out of writing more one-liners in the script?
After seeing his performance do you trust him with taking liberties in the role as much as you trust Nolan if you liked BB?
Maybe.

with Goyer just overseeing the writing and Jonathon Nolan doing most of the actual fdring, I think we can count on a significant decrease in one liners

I'm not complaining too much about his Batman voice, I simply got used to it, but there were variations when he first met Rachel in the monorail station and when he talked to her when she woke up in the batcave. I would lean toward that batcave voice and the voice he used when he spoke to Gordon in Gordon's home. Otherwise, not too much change needed.

I think the "You never learned to MIND your surroundings!" line in the final fight scene was on point.
