    why does everyone dislike that line? when i heard it and everytime after i got chills.. the huge anticipation of when the darkknight comes to be... an after achieving victory after disppearingfor years he sees the last person he talked 2 in gotham..

    it was like he was hinting that "hey its me, and im BACK, wont get tossed out of a club THIS time"

    hard to explain but it baffles me why it can be percieved as "corny" or a one liner.. it looked like casual human to human interaction with no desire to be funny

    It would have been great if it was the only one cheesey line.

    It is corny, but it's stupid to get so worked up over one line.

    I don't see the problem. Made him seem a bit weirder, which then portrays the idea that he's not entirely human.

    Exactly, it also showed that he knew who he was fighting for, it was a way of saying to the guy 'you've no need to be afraid of me, i'm here to protect YOU!'

    It's not really a corny line, if you think about it, though it is a mood-breaker for some, and nice extra for others. Rest assured, it would've sucked if the line had no history to it, but now it did. I like it. "Nice ride" was worse, because it was too random, and its placement was pretty bad - it was the final fight dammit, no comic relief allowed!

    Was the guy who played the homeless dude the same guy who played Boris the Blade in Snatch?

    It takes you out of the drama and feel of the rest of the scene. Personally I had more of a problem with the "nice ride" though. But I think we can expect less one-liners with Goyer gone.

    OR the odds and logic were completely ignored and Batman saw the same guy that he'd given his coat too years earlier and still happened to recognise it, because somehow, someway, it was still recognisable.

    Yes, it's a line but any offence is equally ridiculous as any defence.

    The problem only comes when an entire film is made of lines like that.

    As I said, I don't think it's the line, but the whole bunch of terrible one-liners which make this special line to feel really awful.
