Completely serious and unintentionally funny.
what's funny to some people, I guess just isn't funny to others.
personally, I , and many in the theatre with me found the "lovely lovely voice" statement hilarious.

to each his own I guess..

The "lovely, lovely voice" was intentionally funny IMO. Same when Bane gave the nod and said "thank you" in that other scene.

That's the thing it's not meant to be taken seriously, someone may not find it funny that doesn't mean it isn't trying to be.

So Bane is about to blow up a stadium but just before that he is going to straight faced, completely seriously praise this young boy's voice?

And was Bane actually mocking him? He said it was a lovely voice and it's not like he was trying to be funny to his henchmen. It's also safe to say that that kid was not still standing in the middle of the field when he triggered the explosions.
Well to be honest, people in the audience laughed both times I saw the movie when Bane said "what a lovely, lovely voice".

Everyone cracked up during my opening day IMAX screening but I was the only one laughing during my second screening in a normal theater.

Felt a little embarrassed for laughing so hard the second time around too as I was sure everyone was going to respond exactly like my first showing, boy was I wrong.

I thought it was funny too, but I think people are arguing about what is intentionally funny and what isn't in this movie.

In my opinion I look at scenes that aren't intended to be funny from the director's chair, like Batman's trigger explosion, compared to Bane's comment about the kid's voice, which I'm sure he wanted some people to chuckle at.

Exactly.

Bane's comment on the child voice is very clearly meant to be funny.

Talia's death isn't. But it comes across as funny.

Yeah I think it's one of those things where because of the situation and what babes about to do.. And the fact that the kid is still on the field when bane grabs the trigger, makes it kind of not funny to some people at the time they first see it. Of course looking back now for me personally it's a lighter moment than when I first saw it, but for myself it's nothing I cracked up at. More chuckled at "wow bane is an evil bastard".

Here's how I view the "lovely, lovely voice" scene.

I think the scene itself was very much written as an intentionally funny break (momentary comic relief) within the entire bleak and serious tone the upcoming scene was going to contain.

With that said I believe Bane as a character was being completely genuine when he said he thought the child had a lovely voice. It's no secret that Bane seems to have a soft spot for little kids and views their innocence as something worth protecting. No matter how twisted his outlook of the large scheme of things may be to rid the world of "decadence and corruption".

Bane's "What a lovely, lovely voice" line is clearly intentional humor, meant to make you laugh uncomfortably.

When I saw the Mayor's VIP lounge get blown I couldn't help but think that someone's kid was in there though...

I found the way he compliments the voice then gestures for the detanator sadistically funny. It raised a few chuckles at my screen. It's kind of the same as Joker's magic trick. The way The Joker reacts makes it funny but in the end he has just killed someone in a very brutal way.

I agree. Seeing it the second time, and knowing how he was the one who protected Talia, you know there's some fraction of a heart in there. Wasn't going to change what he was about to do, but there was a faint trace of the man he was at that moment.

And it was meant to be funny as well. The guy was just about to blow the stadium to hell, after all.

It got some laughs when I saw it last night.

Yeah in retrospect the act itself is incredibly cruel but I think that's exactly what that moment of comic relief is supposed to do. Ease off the load of the despicably heinous act.

It could show hes unstable, one minute saying this and the next minute being a manic murderer again.

That's HARDLY what I was claiming and I don't know where you got the idea from. The first few pages of this thread there are things that are legitimately unintentionally funny. I was simply pointing out that as of late in this thread, some of the things people find funny are pretty huge stretches. And I was hardly the only one who was pointing this out,so I'm not quite sure why your singling me out.

I'm pretty sure that "What a lovely voice" was a subtle "F*** you" to that kid and his handlers.

That kid was awful for someone with so much talent. He was part of some choir from overseas, and they'd flown him in, and he could barely sing The Star Spangled Banner. Nolan seemed pretty frustrated with him and his vocal coach after about 40 takes, and the crowd was booing him in between takes, which probably didn't help, but still...It took several hours of shooting, and I think they still barely got what they needed.

They could have got any kid and then dubbed his voice....

What makes you think Nolan was frustrated? The kid was freakin young I'd be petrified and the crowd booing would make it ten times worse.

What makes me think Nolan was frustrated was that as I recall, he was walking around looking frustrated.
