The fact that the odds were stacked against Bruce/Batman as much as they were and he just brushes them aside like it is nothing is what really made this movie less believable then the others. The first time Batman and Bane fight, Batman gets absolutely slaughtered. He had zero chance to beat him at hand to hand combat and ends up getting his back broken.
He is left in a prison to recover, which only took him 5 months to recover from a broken back. Not only that, when he tried to climb out of the whole, he failed twice, falling which looked like at least 30 to 40 feets, WITH A ROPE TIED AROUND HIS BACK!!! Somehow this does not damage his back any further, he makes it out of the hole, travels all the way back to Gotham, and beats Bane in their second hand to hand combat match.
Give me a break.
By the way, is there a spoiler tag?
i have to disagree with you there. the fact that the majority of the film is spent on Bruce sitting in that cave gathering his strength (both physical and mental) lends massive credibility to his comeback. the symbolism behind the jump is what makes his fight with at the end believable...conquering his biggest hurdle by becoming just as tough as Bane.
I'm sure there are a million ways to nitpick at this film, and it's always some small plot hole or "unrealistic element" (no shit its a movie about a guy dressed as a bat) which people seem to point to because the truth is; the writing, the cinematography, the acting and pretty much all of its other aspects are phenomenal. this coming from a guy who had unrealistically high expectations after TDK. take the other films out of the equation, if you will, and judge it on its own merit...this blows away 90% of films out there and certainly every other comic book movie ever made (with perhaps the exception of its own predecessor)
