I saw the "last" installment of the Christian Bale Batman movies today. (Yeah, yeah, what can I say? I work a lot and I don't get out much.)
I just wanted to say that I don't see what all the hype is about. It was okay. Not great. The chick who played Catwoman was meh. Too two-dimensional for my liking. Couldn't hold a candle to Michelle Pfeiffer.
I was glad to see Val Kilmer's the washed up actor's character get killed. What was the deal having him in that movie anyway? A mercy job by the producers? Is he a personal friend of Nolan? Also, it was a bit much to have him wearing his dress uniform.
They did a good job with Bane (even if they didn't follow the Knightfall story 100%). Nice plot twist by having the chick be Ra's al Ghul's daughter.
Having every cop in the city go into the sewer was idiotic and unrealistic for even a comic book movie. I mean, really? That's the best that the screenwriters could come up with?
The Batcycle and "Bat" helicopter thing were cool.
