    I can't decide whether that was intentional or not. Although to be fair the dialogue was awful and that wasn't Gillen's fault.

    I'd agree. It was fine for the most part with the exception of the Prologue, and any scene where's he's shouting because it goes squeeky.

    Bane's eyes during the last few lines of his speech in front of the prison. Cracked up during that scene while watching both times. That's really about it for me though.

    Totally agree, his eyes and how he moves his head.

    It's like Talia's death scene was the final day of production and they only had 30-minutes to shoot the scene, so they just had to settle for it.

    Thank you! The CIA guy is by far the funniest part of this movie unintentionally. The way he stands when he says the line "and only one OF YOU!" gets me every time. It's such a weird pose and the way he says it is hilarious.

    I loved that for two reasons:

    1) It signified a total turnaround with Bruce utterly dominating Bane and

    2) It was also basically a tribute to the scene in TDK where Bruce whaled on Joker in the interrogation scene once he found out Rachel was in trouble, the closest you were ever gonna get to a Joker reference in TDKR.

    Batman's final "Where is it?" bit is funny, but not in a bad way. It's still a powerful moment. Maybe it's because most of us have forgiven the bat-voice to begin with. But it shows how exhausted Batman has become, but how furious he is. It tells a lot.

    The voice is funny, but I don't really feel it takes away from the scene at all. It's funnier because he has a moment like that in each film so it feels like a little bit of an homage. I think it's "Where is it?" in BB and "Where are they?" in TDK.

    At any rate, while my friends and I like repeating the "WHERE IS IT?!!" Bat-voice for fun, I don't think it takes away from the scene at all.

    EDIT: The only part of this movie that I find just sort of poorly done was Tate's death scene. It was a little distracting how comically she died, but meh, out of 3 hours of wild and intense fun I can accept a cheesy minor character's death.

    It's not the dialogue. It's the delivery. He's shouting over engine noise. It's hard to sound Shakespearian when you're trying to be heard. You have to talk slower and enunciate kind of strangely. Didn't bother me.

    Exactly. It's not a funny line and it's delivered fine, but at this point I was so amped up I probably chuckled too, out of excitement.

    This is what I was trying to say. You said it best, I think.

    I'd be more comfortable if Batman said something like "No. I came back to stop you..... I mean, you have any idea what you did to my back? *lifts cape up & shows back brace* I had a piece of my spine sticking out for crying out loud. And then you drop me in a jail cell halfway across the world with only one channel to watch. No ESPN or anything, come on, dude. You could've left me a magazine.. or *something* Ok, you know what *looks at chaos all around*, we don't have a lot of time here, let's fight."

    First of all I was glad that there was no "The whole thing is blowing up" (is this line correct?) and "That's not good. Okay, that's not good" line in this film.
    But Talia's death was hilarious. And so cliché. The whole audience was giggling.

    no one has mentioned the goofy looking bastard that Alfred mistook Bruce for in Florence. couldn't they have gotten a better looking actor? The whole scene, with his creepy turn around to Alfred and Alfred quickly looking away like he wasn't staring. The whole scene could have been cut out in my opinion.

    I really paid attention to the whole movie today when I saw it a 4th time and I have to agree, that dude Alfred mistakes/imagines as Bruce is a total goofball lookin' mofo. But perhaps that was the intent so that when it's revealed to not be Bruce you're like "UHHH..wtf, turn back around dude"

    There is a distinction for me. I think the specific "After you tell me where the detonator is, THEN you have my permission to die" is badass is awesome.

    It's all the "WHERREEE'S THHHEEE TRIGGERRRR??!?!?!?!" stuff before that that I think is hysterical and WAY over the top. I'm not even saying it's still not good, I like it, it didn't ruin the scene for me, but it did make me laugh.

    To me it's like uh Batman, that tactic didn't work with the Joker, I don't think it's going to work any better with Bane.

    The moment when Bruce finally jumps the prison tunnel gap and makes it, is full of cheese!

    I found the prison version of Alfred (I forget his name) reaction to Bruce's escape more hilarious. The look on his face to me shows his inner thoughts of "Ahh s**t...he got out. Bane is going to kill me for this." He just has a look on him that is interesting to me. It's not a look of respect or admiration..to me, it's a look of fear of what may come later.

    Also, the other prisoners in that scene chanting where purely over the top. There is ONE guy who is center in that chanting that is just purely exaggerating his chant to the extreme. I laugh every time I see it. He looks like a rabid dog foaming at the mouth.

    So now the over the top Bat-Growl in the Trigger scene is a "homage".

    Ah, the Bat-Boards. How I love you.

    BTW, Batman's "you have my permission to die" was full of cheese for me, altough not as bad as the "I know how you got this!" comeback in TDK.
