- Bane. the coolest badly EVER
Not sure if “badly” is “baddy” or “baldy”.
I thought he was pretty good, though “Yes, my plan was to get caught” Joker-style looked tired enough when Skyfall did it, never mind when Batman does it…
Never really got to shine in the fight scenes though did he? Bats looked like he had his jeans on too tight.Posted 5 years agoKevevsMember
I don’t get films where a man dresses like a monosyllabic rubber bat to fight crime is going to make me pay 8 quid for the pleasure, and crime being a bloke with a jockstrap on his face.
Hannibal Lecter, there’s a baddy. Or Don Logan in Sexy Beast, there’s a baddy. Or the bad guys in The Wire – who were they again?Posted 5 years ago
I agree the fight final big brawl with police etc was beyond crap.
Its easy to find charm in the mentioned super villains; Hannibal lector is a good example of super villains, practically untouchable, uncatchable and unbelievable.Posted 5 years ago
Villains like Anton Suggur; he’s the low life catchable under dog who’s given amazing lines and draws you in with his total luniscey.
+1 For the joker as well though.RealManMember
I thought he was a very average baddy in the film at least, worst fight scenes from a super hero movie ever.
Yeah, the last batman film failed to be good at the only thing it tried to be: a mindless action film. The fight scenes were just beyond awful. Watch it again with a load of shots lined up, drink every time someone throws a ridiculously telegraphed hook, or when a bad guy just refuses to shoot his gun for no reason. When you get out of hospital, watch Watchmen.
Also I didn’t really get why Bane (who grew up in some prison in durkadurkastan) sounded sort of like Sean Connery.
Anton Chigurh was an awesome bad guy – but cool? The joker, likewise – cool?

Bardem in skyfall is sporadically brilliant…
The problem I had with him was that he didn’t really live up to the preamble. “Ooh, he’s so evil” – “believe me, I know evil” – “oh no you don’t, not like this guy, he’s Evil Squared.”
When he turns up, he’s an interesting villain as they go, and very well played. But “evil”? I’ve dropped more evil farts than Raoul Silva.
Compare and contrast, say, Le Chiffre in Casino Royale. He’d have had electrodes on Silva’s plums before you could say “wait, didn’t I used to have fingernails?”Posted 5 years ago
Yeah, Bardem was more amoral then evil wasn’t he… But scarier than Le Chiffre because of the unpredictability.
Dark Knight Returns, I dunno. I liked it, but it really is rotten in places. And not complicated places either, it’s not like Hollywood doesn’t know how to make fight scenes, but every time Batman throws a punch it’s like a fat drunk in a nightclub.
One thing I really liked was the Wayne/Bane approach to the bomb. “I can’t make this power plant, people’ll use it to make uberbombs” “This guy used the power plant to make bombs. What a dick! <CRACK> No uberbombs ever. Well, except this one, LOL”Posted 5 years agosomafunkSubscriber
i thought i’d “treat” myself to a film download t’night from itunes seeing as the last film i watched was “Drive” earlier on this year (good film) so i had a look through and decided on “The Dark Knight” , i thought it”s about time i seen it as i’ve heard others raving about “Bane” etc..etc so i settled down an hr ago to watch it wi a beer or two.
Wot a pile of crap, how on earth does this pile of shite get so many good reviews, i burst out sniggering every time “Bane” opened his mouth and what was wi the gimp mask?, 1 hr in and it’s switched off, deleted from itunes and i’m about to get back to wrapping xmas presents whilst drinking whisky and listening to the Giles Peterson show broadcast on 6music yesterday, it was his best of 2012 show so at least I’m guaranteed good music if not a good film.
Utter-utter tripe of a movie and a farcical plot line, I’ve asked for my money back from itunes.Posted 5 years ago
