The character Barsad, Bane's right-hand-man played by Josh Stewart, is a sniper and heavy arms expert. He is always shown wearing a bulletproof vest which has large bullets on it and a red scarf. This is a take on the Batman villain DeadShot, a character which co-writer David S. Goyer had expressed interest in bringing to the big screen.

That's cool but would have liked them to do a little more with the character.

I knew Gotham Knights being a prequel to TDK was just a marketing tool.

Shame because the Deadshot episode was by far the best one.

Nah, the whole thing was poorly held together, and as good as it was, the art style didn't work for the film it was supposed to be.

EDIT: I was bitterly disappointed with Azarello's story too. His writing seems to get worse every time he comes out with summat new.

What I love most about the film is that it was shot on a 65mm imax camera, which uses about 300 feet of film per minute of shooting. An imax camera like most 16mm to 70mm cameras can only hold about 1000 feet of film and 1000 feet really is the larges amount you can by in commercial stock
http://www.filmstockclearance.com/
Now a good reel of 35mm film costs at a bare minimum price in excess of £100. Now for 65mm film (Not commercial 70mm 65mm) thats gonna cost you in excess of £300 per three minutes of shooting. Thats £100 a minute just for film and they shot 72 hours on it!, not to mention that imax's 65mm film cameras are the best in the world and come with a best-camera-in-the-world rental price and the dark knight team broke one of only 4 in existence in a stunt fail and where probably billed millions for the damage to the camera coz their not cheap things!
Because of this cost hollywood is trying to force many cinemas and film crews to shoot with and play back on DV instead of celluloid and almost all film crews and cinemas have reacted Violently to this.
And the fact that today many directors (Excluding cunts like james cameron [-X ) have recognised the value of this is what has given me hope that the world isnt too fucked.

I like IMAX and the day they can use it from start to finish will be great. Mainly happy Nolan flat out said no to 3D.

Just finished watching the BD. Was as amazing in quality as TDK was. The IMAX portions are so consistantly impressive to me that I would replay certain scenes over again. Love the film. Honestly cant wait to see whats coming up next in the future. Its probably one of my favorite endings to a movie.

I've seen this movie yesterday and I didn't like it all that much.
I wonuldn't go to the point of calling it terrible, because it isn't, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Now looking back at the trilogy, I realize that both the first and third movies weren't all that great. Granted TDK was indeed good (perhaps great for most people), but the other ones were just too long, too boring at times and with relatively unfulfilling endings.
This third one was better than the first but it remains miles away from TDK. The honest trailer summed up some of my complaints and introduced new ones that I didn't realize while watching the movie

My main complaints are the lack of batman (or bruce wayne for that matter) that suddenly disappeared from the movie, completely disappeared, they wouldn't even cut back to him anymore and the fact that catwoman was introduced without any proper background and again was way too realistic.
Basically I just want a bit more fantasy in these type of movies, like what I got with Avengers, that felt rushed no doubt but it delivered in the aspect of the overall experience.
This one was slow-paced, unexciting and suspenseless and, even though it was over 2 and a half hours long, it still left some loose ends...


Overall this is just not the type of superhero movies I want to see. They're not supposed to be realistic, they're superheroes, they should be over-the-top and action packed (and this one had terrible action scenes though)

One thing that amazes me is that people now regard the trilogy as one of the best movie franchises of all time, when it clearly had a stand-out movie and two average ones

Ive never got the too realistic complaint with these. Its a man dressed as a Bat going around in a tank and in this only FLYING about :lol:
Outside of that you have a guy in a Scarecrow mask making every one mess them selves with gas, The Joker who can survive a lorry flipping upside down, Two Face who should have died witin the day of those injuries and Bane who's just a freak and would have died years ago if this was real.

All they really did was have a real city rather than a load of 90ft statues all over the place.

Being real is different than being realistic. Obviously it's a piece of fiction with fantasy elements in it, but is far less cartoonish and far more life-like than the Burton version or the other ones for that matter.

My complaint is that if someone goes to the point of including fantasy elements into their stories, why not go all the way. The superheroes don't really need to be surrounded by reality, they just need to kick ass and do it in a flamboyant fashion and this trilogy tries to show a more human batman and it shows for example in the final fight against bane that is really lackluster and ultimately disappointing.

And you can't obviously not get why people say it's more realistic. Compare this trilogy with every other superhero movie and it'll be pretty clear that these batman take itself too seriously, with it's dark tone and inner struggle and intricate plotlines. All I'm saying is that I don't enjoy this kind of movie all that much, but I perfectly understand why people do.

For that matter I haven't enjoyed any of nolan's movies, far too difficult to follow for me (I guess) but it seems like plottwists "porn" and far-fetched storylines. Just not for me...
