I can understand some of the issue’s Trey had with “Dark Knight Rises” however I disagree on one of the of things he considers a major flaw of the movie, the concept. If you can’t buy into the concept of the movie then of course you won’t be able to enjoy it. That doesn’t make it necessarily a flaw. Being not realistic? Some suspension of disbelief needs to be used with all movies and while Nolan’s Batman is in a more plausible reality it’s not possible in a lot of ways(healing punch(comic booky no never seen a healing punch in comics)). While I believe there are flaws with the film I don’t think everything you consider to be flaw are.

I’m with you there, Diarra–except why do the Hulk’s pants get bigger when he does in the marvel movies? jk:)

I agree that suspension of disbelief is absolutely necessary in any film, even the most realistic. My problems with the back punch healing of Bruce Wayne is not that its unrealistic per se, it’s that it doesn’t seem to fit in the über-gritty and real world that Nolan has constructed. Nolan seems to shift rules when it suits his plotting.

Eric – I wish there was some explicatory dialogue where Bruce Banner talks about really loving a brand of super stretch dungarees.

Maybe in Avengers 2 or Hulk Rebooted 3!
