    Fantastic job. Surprised people aren't talking about his performance. Tom Conti as the doctor was an annoying side character friend of the hero. He's like Paul Giamatti from Planet of the Apes.

    lol, Conti was cool. His character was really clever, considering he was in many ways an Alfred stand in while Bruce was in the prison.

    But yeah, Uri was great. I loved how he started chanting "Deshi, Basarah" when Bruce finally climbed the pit. Man, I teared up so hard during that scene when I first saw TDKR in IMAX.

    Conti was fine; I did have some problems understanding the Blind Prisoner's dialogue.

    This.

    I thought that he was great in the brief role, also liked Tom Conti's performance, he was like Alfred for Bruce in prison.

    Gavriel was the doctor. He's the one who fixed up/made worse Bane. Conti was more like a nurse.

    They were both really good.

    Yes Uri Gavriel was the Doctor, what did you guys think about the performance of Alon Aboutboul as Dr. Leonid Pavel ?

    Amazing? He was annoying as hell. Even when he wasn't speaking he had this dumb Droopy Dog look on his face.

    I thought he was great, especially at the football field. He came off believable.

    To me he would have fit right at home on an early season of 24 :)

    So you are judging a man's acting capabilities and his role based on his face? A bit shallow, don't ya think? :whatever:

    I said EVEN when he wasn't speaking he had a dumb look on his face, which meant when he wasn't giving corny performances he was standing around looking stupid. Usually this happens with the crappy extras Nolan usually hires, but it finally seeped into one of the main actors who should have not been in this movie to begin with.

    I thought Uri was impressive with the handful scenes he was given. His dialogue and delivery were excellent, in my honest opinion.

    The look on his face when Bruce made the jump was priceless. Small roll but excellently done.

    Might be because he was having such fun living in a pit in the middle of the desert.

    "...then, fear will find you again."

    The prison scenes are my favorite of the whole film.

    Definitely shed a few the first few times I saw that catharsis moment.

    Very moving. It may not be a stretch to say that moment, that scene, is when

    "the dark knight rises"

    Bruce climbing out of the pit was the most powerful scene for me, especially when he got out and started walking off towards Gotham. The music was just so perfect there. Everything building up to that point was amazing as well

    Is it weird that the prison scenes and Bruce climbing in general have become a sense of inspiration for me as I go through a tough time right now? Whenever anxiety and depression boil up, the image of the climb pops in my head...and it really helps.

    It's normal. Batman could be anyone. He is ahuman being who conquers everyday troubles and more. If he can do it in a pit with a box of scraps (yes that was intentional), why can't we do it too?

    "Tony Stark was able to build this... in a cave.. with a box of scraps!"

    lol

    on a serious note, your line reminds me of the scene where Bruce is in the car with Blake and he turns to him and says

    "The idea was.. to be a symbol...Batman could be anyone....that was the point"

    I thought all the supporting characters' performances were great. Dr. Pavel, Tom Conti's character, Uri's character, Josh Stewart, etc.
