So I've just been thinking about the ramifications of the events of this film. To be certain Batman save millions of lives but could the city itself ever really function? Obviously certain things are back in order if they have the time and resources to install a statue of batman but really would any city really recover from what happened in this film? First of all the government of the city was overthrown, the mayor killed and surely many officials pushed out onto the ice. The city lived in pretty much anarchy for months. Also the degree to which the infrastructure of the city was demolished, bridges destroyed, streets crumbled. And then there's the matter of the fallout from the nuclear bomb that went off right off the coast. It simply wouldn't be healthy for people to stay and many people would abandon gotham a soon as they could. What kind of economy could the city possibly even maintain? What businesses would move into a city where the citizens executed boardmembers? This isn't a criticism of the film at all just something I've been thinking about. What do you all think?
