Christopher Nolan’s DC Trilogy got off to a critically acclaimed and well-received start in the 2005s Batman begins. Then, The black Knight was released and blew his predecessor out of the water. Even still, both films have made viewers jump to Reddit to identify scenes and aspects that seem out of place.

Nolan’s corker trilogy, The dark knight rises, probably received more of these complaints than its two predecessors combined. It was a box office success, but some Redditors believe it is indicative of the issues with the trilogy as a whole.


Liam Neeson as Ra’s Al Ghul

A Redditor started a thread about their long-delayed first viewing of Batman begins, mainly to question its reputation as the best Batman origin story. One thing they contested with was the casting of Irish actor Liam Neeson as the Arabian Ra’s al Ghul.

As fauxhb wrote, “Liam Neeson is not Ra’s. I had a hard time accepting that Batman is not just this Earth-related story of a rich guy with expensive armor leaping from the rooftops… and that there’s this immortal dude from the east with a radical attitude towards a specific small town, but wasn’t he supposed to be Arab? ”

The fights in Batman begin

Even though this is one of the best superhero movie origin stories out there, Batman begins suffers from having his main character in an extremely rigid costume. Bale looks uncomfortable when he’s in it, and Redditors have noticed.

Rdditor Wealthy_Gadabout postulated that “The fighting in Batman begins could be called “expressionist,” emphasizing movement and showing how Batman appears to the thugs he beats. then continue with a theory: “I think a huge problem was the decision to put three deadly razor sharp blades on his wrist guards.” In every fight you can see Batman trying to get around them … “

Bruce Wayne’s disguised voice

People are hit and miss as to which voice Bale chose to use when wearing the cloak and hood. Lines like “Swear to me!” According to the viewer, it seems intimidating or frightening without any real intermediary.

User Baramos_ wrote that “It’s just that specific Batman voice that people don’t like. If it hadn’t been so annoying people probably wouldn’t have brought up the fact that he does. even uses with people like Lucius Fox who know who he is. ” A good point, when Bruce Wayne is in his battle suit, he even uses the gravel voice with Lucius Fox. It is not necessary and it apparently removes some people from the cinema.

The boat scene

The scene of the prisoner boat in The black Knight does a great job of showing how fear can consume people, but it doesn’t always win out.

User Crumpgazing thinks it’s worse than the rest of the movie, saying, “It was such a generic comic book movie, and the whole trilogy is full of those moments. People try to act like that. if they had elevated the superhero genre … they’ve got a lot of those generic superhero movie elements. “

The tone of the Joker in a PG-13 movie

Heath Ledger’s Joker is a thing about The black Knight Trilogy that improves over time. The vast majority of viewers and critics were impressed, and perhaps even frightened.

Ultimately, ANewMuleSkinner doesn’t disagree on the strength of the performance, but believes the character is out of place in the PG-13 movie to a jarring degree. “I thought the truly terrifying and psychologically complex characterization of the Joker clashed with the rest of the movie’s PG-13 tone.”

A weak rescue strategy

One of the most traumatic moments of The black Knight The trilogy arrives in the second film, with the death of Rachel Dawes. The Joker orchestrated it so that Dawes was in one bulging spot, while Harvey Dent was in another. Batman takes Dawes, Gotham PD takes Dent.

A now deleted user thinks this is a strange and misguided technique: “Really? And you mean there are no cops on patrol. closer to those two locations, and that Batman can get there first, but “every available unit” can’t get to the other location in time? “

No, I came here to stop you

When some Redditors started to dive into The dark knight rises, there was a general consensus that there was a lack of memorable action sequences. However, the dialogue received an even greater backlash.

In The__Ugly’s words, “Lol. Not to mention that … horrible scenario. ‘You came back to die with your town?’ “No, I came here to arrest you.” Wow rekt. ” RetConBomb then replied, “He couldn’t have said anything and it would have been cooler than that.” Very true, if Wayne hadn’t responded to Bane’s taunt it would have actually been a little more effective.

The Dark Knight Rises combat logic

A primary complaint with Nolan’s Batman movies is that they are blockbuster movies with seemingly little interest directed towards individualized action sequences. The_aura_of_justice wrote: “I really love Nolan’s Batman movies, but the fight choreography was one of his weaknesses in those movies.”

Redditor Dgiven91 added, “Or fight logic. Like the big battle at the end of TDKR where the armed cops fight each other with their fists with the mercenaries who also have guns. It just doesn’t make sense.” If there is one main complaint to be made against the trilogy as a whole, it would certainly be fair to bring it to The dark knight rises’ too convenient final.

Poor Alfred

As one of the most intense scenes in The black Knight Trilogy, the dumping ground has its consequences. Batman saves Gotham, but he doesn’t tell some key people in his life where he’s going.

It was then that Batfan007 made an excellent point about the well-established dynamic between Wayne and Alfred. “In DKRises, Bruce lets Alfred think he’s dead, and doesn’t bother to mention he’s still alive, he leaves the only man in the world who cares to walk him through hell, as he ‘he could have just picked up the da ** phone after the threat was over / Gotham was saved. ” The Redditor gives more details on their opinion, but it is absolutely true that Alfred should have known about it shortly after the explosion. There is also an argument for Jim Gordon.

Batman doesn’t even try to outsmart Bane in TDKR

The dark knight rises goes for action sequences where the viewer can feel every punch. In fact, most of the action pieces in the movie are just standard hand-to-hand combat.

Redditor Stkbayfield thinks there should have been something a little more: “I always thought the final fight in DKR would have made him outsmart Bane somehow. Either by reversing his tactics or by doing something strange. Instead, he just needed to use the world’s greatest sleuth. brain to hit the weak spot of his face. Many. “Wayne is supposed to be a detective, so it’s fair to wish the scripts would focus a bit more on Batman’s brain.
