I hope the next Batman movie saga is based on the Batman Beyond storylines. I had really hoped that Joseph Gordon Levitts character was going to be named Terry McGinnis.

Man I forgot how little I cared for The Dark Knight Rises ending.

(I was watching Dark Knight Rises, hence my previous Batman comment)

TDKR is an extremely flawed movie that undoes a lot of what TDK did so well. but other than that, it was pretty good, i guess

1- it's a 3 hour batman movie with 20 mins of batman
2- making batman a cripple at the beginning of the movie completely undoes the ending of the Dark Knight where he says "let them chase me. I can take it"
3- Alfred leaving him at his lowest point goes against everything he's said in BOTH previous movies
4- JGL and Anne Hathaway are BOTH boring mary sue characters.
5-too many characters... too many villains... talia al ghul totally an unnecessary plot twist
6- various plot holes (how did batman get back to gotham with no money and a total blockade?, when did he find the time to paint the giant bat in gas? why is the commissioner of police chasing bad guys into the sewer? why is the ENTIRE police force sent chasing bad guys in the sewer? why didn't they check the identities of the prisoners before letting them on the plane at the beginning? etc etc etc... these aren't much individually, but they add up)


i can keep going...

I find it humorous when people point out "plot holes" like those for a superhero movie.

why should superhero movies be held to any different standard than any other movie? Isn't that what the Dark Knight set out to, and DID, accomplish? to not just be a movie that's good for a superhero movie, but a legitimately good movie? there was a huuuge degree of just utter laziness in both the scripting and execution in TDKR.

So, your plot doesn't have to make any sense, just as long as it's a superhero movie? People are obviously willing to suspend their disbelief, but that still doesn't give you a license to throw crap at a wall and see what sticks.

Spoiler:
bruce wayne spends years being gimpy, needs a brace to walk right, and then suddenly is the most spry dude in all of turkey without the leg brace. this was just a few weeks after he broke his back, by the way.

and the french chick al ghoul turn was dumb. they achieved the impossible in making a villain that was at least in the same ball park as ledger's joker, and then they neuter him by making him a glorified henchman.

I hope we stop making superhero movies, forever. How many times can you reboot Spiderman, Batman, and Superman? What's left to do and say? Can't wait for Christopher Nolan to give Ant-Man a 6 part movie saga.

I suppose you two missed the words "like those".

How did he get back to and in Gotham? How did he paint the bat symbol with gas? HE'S FREAKING BATMAN, THATS HOW! Why did they send all the police force into the tunnels? Because the police commissioner was out of his mind. Those are not major plot holes in my book.

the only thing i'm really sick of in superhero movies is that they feel the need to re-tell the origin in EVERY reboot. one of the reasons i like the 1989 Batman so much is that Batman is in the 1st scene in the movie. the backstory is given in a 5 minute sequence later in the movie. It's not the 1st hour+ of the movie. we all know that spiderman was bitten by a radioactive spider, and batman was bitten by a radioactive bat. we don't need to hear that story over and over again.

"these aren't much individually, but they add up"

are you just trying to be contrary?
