Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I've found that every time someone says the batman movie wasnt good, they get verbally attacked. Its their freaking opinion and it doesnt affect you. It's just a movie and to get riled up to the point of making death threats is pathetic IMO.
I had only seen part of the first batman and I fully understood and enjoyed this one, it was a great movie in my opinion. FYL that you're boyfriend/girlfriend had broken up with you because of it, I feel like there has to be more of a backstory to why you were broken up with.
Well I didn't like it either, and I will tell you why. The first thing I noticed was that the acting was not great. It was mediocre at best. The second thing I noticed was that Batman is absolutely terrible at keeping his identity a secret. At the middle of the movie, most every other major character knew all about Bruce Wayne's expensive adventures. another major flaw was that the movie was actually incredibly predictable. Anyone who has watched a movie before could pretty much tell what would happen next. Something I personally didn't like at all was that Batman spent 70% of the movie in jail, 25% of the movie as a normal billionaire guy, and 2.5% getting his ass kicked, and 2.5% actually kicking ass. And did anyone else noticed that while he was In the Batman suit, he never closed his mouth and his tongue would roll around and flip to and fro, and that was annoying. And if you have read this so far, it's because you either watched the movie or aren't afraid of spoilers, so you know that at the end he dragged a nuclear bomb with a blast radius of 6 miles out into the water. And it exploded. At least 10+ miles out in the sea. Oh, and he did it in 20 seconds. That never has made sense to me. And the he would have to go an extra 3 miles before he would have been completely obliterated by the initial blast, which he managed, and miraculously survived. So go ahead, thumb me down to oblivion. I had to get this off my chest somewhere, and someone finally set me up here. OP, FML users and subscribers, I thank you for your time. So what was the thing everyone liked so much about it, just curious?
1) The acting was fantastic, every actor/actress made me believe he/she was the character. 2) Batman kept his identity secret from all the citizens of Gotham, millions of people, and you are annoyed because about 5 or 6 major characters, who have powerful resources, found out who he is? 3) The movie was not entirely predictable, or did you actually think that the good guys would eventually lose in a Batman movie? 4) That's the f*cking plot you moron. I take it you didn't see The Dark Knight. In that movie he takes the fall for Harvey Dent's murder, and is hated by all of Gotham now. Do you expect him to stick his neck out a lot if the entire city has branded him a criminal? 5) Oh for f*cks sake you have got to be kidding me. What are you five? You not liking the design of the costume is not a reason to dislike a movie. BTW, this exact part of the design is explained in The Dark Knight, that the mouth is exposed so that you can hear the truth (as opposed to the lies you hear from other sources). 6) I'm now convinced you are a moron. At the end of the movie we are told that Bruce Wayne fixed the autopilot on the Bat, so he simply sent it off far away to explode, WITHOUT him being there. And the reason why it could have gotten so far in so little time, is because it's the f*cking Bat, it was built to do this. In conclusion, only the first reason you gave was a valid opinion, and I disagree completely. I suggest you get your head out of your *ss and actually watch the movie.
I think everyone should calm down. He didn't like the movie for his reasons. You like the movie for yours. Leave it at that and don't get so worked up over it. It is JUST a movie. Jeez-a-loo you people. Name calling? Really? Have we lost all common sense and decency?
There are several things wrong with what you just said. First, I never said I didn't like the design of the costume, I just didn't like how he would never close his mouth while wearing the costume. Next, I said in another comment that it shows him, in all his bat-like glory, sitting in the cockpit at 0:03 seconds before the bomb explodes. Autopilot does not mean he is magically warped to a safe distance. He would have to be able to travel 1 mile every 2 seconds to be able to get away from said blast, which I'm pretty sure is not possible.
Also he got from tibet to america and into gotham city under lock down completely unimpeded in 6 hours. (according to movie clocks) also the time till detonation goes up and down constantly. Also he fixed his completely broken spine with a rope. And the power of a nuclear bomb is well beyond what was depictded. The radiation wud still kill everyone. Also banes crew neatly piled up cars over 50 feet high to block the tunnel. Also why is the new york stock exchange in gotham?
Batman probably wasn't still in the Bat with 3 seconds left. It's movie editing for dramatic effect, so the audience would think he's still in danger when he's in the clear. It's not being shown in real time. Tons of movies and tv shows do this. Plus they never fully show Batman in the Bat, just a closeup of him. It could have also been a shot of him while in his escape pod. If you needed Christopher Nolan to explain every little detail in the movie to you, the movie would be at least 4 hours long. Use some imagination...
Conclusion: you're all retarded. No one gives a fuck about your opinions, it's a movie to watch and enjoy, not point every flaw. It's about the action, about the story. I feel sorry for people like you who can't even enjoy a movie. The original poster deserves it for trying to get attention, when no one asked for his opinion. Breaking up with someone for that reason is harsh though, but the threats were probably not serious
102- I thought the reason he didn't mind revealing his identity to those certain few is because through the whole movie he was thinking that was it for him. That he didn't mind them knowing, and actually wanted them to know because he knew/thought that he was going to be done will all of the batman stuff after this last defense of Gotham City. And didn't you notice he pretty much had a death wish for some of the movie? It makes sense to why he would reveal his identity to a few.
122, think about it. It's batman. You think he doesn't have an escape pod? He launched the pod after he blew up that building and thats where he stayed until the explosion went off. Also, he didn't have 20 seconds he had two minutes (ridiculous still) but more believable than 20 seconds.
To all the people who are upset over the movie being unrealistic: Batman is a comic book character. Why would you expect it to be realistic? It would be even more unrealistic if they took more things out of the comic like parallel universes where Batman can be both dead and alive at once.
Ok well do you remember the first blast he made into the building before he went over the bridge; that is where it was all auto piloted. Next I love Anne Hathaway so she's a great actress right there. On another note his mouth is probably opened all the time due to his mask it can be uncomfortable who knows? And well what do you except it's a movie. Along with the visual effects and the plot it was well great for me. I watched it 3x so I know what is going on the only thing that displeased me was how bane died so easily from when catwoman shot him from batmans bike. &i think since batman wasnt around dice he was in jail cuz he got caught his city burned down thus the people of Gotham didn't believe in themselves and that machine was part of Wayne's business so of course he had to do something. His machine, his city, and his people. I loved how it ended and that was the last movie of the triology they did say new making of the next movie would be of robin being batman since he was given the cave and Bruce is living his life finally. Which is disappointing since the business is split his house is given away and on what money will robin have to do what batman could? Oh the possibilities but that is just lead to imagination. :D I LOVE MARVEL x.x favorite: hawk girl HOORAHHH
IMO the movie was good, but not oscar material. Had a good storyline, semi-good actors (Morgan Freeman), Good special effects. LOTS of flaws. LOTS of unanswered questions. HOW can Bruce make it from the Middle East to Gotham in only a day? HOW does he have the money for it? The awful twist endding was just horrendous too. The worst in the series. But I still liked it none the less.
I didn't care for it, either. I think the bomb scene was supposed to be explained by the autopilot thing, but that still doesn't quite work. What annoyed me about it was there seemed to be a lot of gratuitous shooting. I don't care if there's a few scenes where people shoot each other, since I guess it's supposed to be an action movie, but when it's not even clear who's shooting who and why, it just seems like half the scenes were in there just because they needed an excuse to show off the prop guns, which cost a ton of money (or were donated by some bigwig they needed to impress.) Funny thing is, though, I posted on FB that I didn't like it and I just got responses from people who agreed with me.
How about when all of his friends are about to die as they walk over ice and Batman thinks its a perfect time to paint a giant batman symbol into the bridge in gasoline? You know, rather than save them? Or when a gun is pointed straight at Robin's face and Catwoman kicks the gun. While the guy's finger is practically squeezing the trigger? You know what people do when they get kicked? They tense. Smart move, Catwoman. Or when Batman is just hands Robin a live grenade before meandering off. He could have just thrown the damn thing (even though it did nothing and was more of a terrible way to show off his cool new non-aerodynamic flying machine), but no, let's potentially try and blow up someone to test their reflexes. Then Batman comes back and shoots a machine gun in basically at Robin (do you have any idea how low accuracy those things are?). Look, I get his trying to test out his future-sidekick for the movie goers, but at that stage Robin is just this detective trying to help people. Batman wasn't even that much of a jackass to the Joker. Plus Bane's voice sounded like Sean Connery and Patrick Stewart had a baby with Barry White's vocal cords. Hearing Batman and Bane have a conversation was like watching to idiots try to growl at each other. He manages to climb out of the prison. Even though Batman's MO is to save people, he just kinda half-assedly tosses down a rope and goes "good enough. at least now my exit will look badass." And the WORST moment, is when the military guys blow up the bridge. I dunno if the people who wrote this have no idea about military procedure, or just logic in general, but if there's a pretty damn high chance the military is gonna establish communication with the creators of said technology; namely Wayne Enterprises. And the Wayne-Enterprises-bomb-squad conveniently know that the bomb is gonna blow no matter what, and instead of alerting the military (which are currently holding an entire population hostage in a city for god knows why) they just go, "oh hell let's just take care of it ourselves." So what if we mess up and an entire city is blown to smithereens and millions die. I fell through a plot hole and couldn't get out.
Everyone had their own opinion, not going to disagree with you there, but even though I liked the batman movies, the last one was a bit suss when he survived the bomb explosion until you hear what happens after, which is, that batman used the auto pilot to take the bomb further, so he could of easily dropped out of the machine outside the bomb radius
248, the assets were recollected at the end of the movie, that's all for you I personally didn't find the movie terrible, but I saw too many elements from the second in it, giving the citizens chances, putting them against one another, and what irked me was, bruce was looking for cool stuff in the first two movies, yet never found the bat or the awesome joint and strength augmentation, personally the augment would have been first on my list, what's the point of awesome gear if you can hardly move with it on. And I do agree with the idiotic walking off in tibet to end up in gotham, especially with no access to his resources nor his vehicles, and being a hobbled man. Not a great movie, and had quite a few too many loop arounds in the story, it was quite simply I think too much effort to build on a fan base to contend with the avengers. But still a good movie and was worth seeing.
Ok i dont blame you for not liking it cuz you do have the right to think that But bane only knew bruce was batman because... Well, how do i put this? Oh yeah, HE'S FREAKING BANE!! How wouldn't he be able to figure it out? The guy's smart. and it specifically says at the end that he fixed the auto pilot on the bat so thats why he survived the blast Most of all, ITS A FREAKING MOVIE you really expect every little detail to be realistic (just realized while typing that how much this relates to smosh :D) Also just pay attention to the freaking plot!! That would make the jail and all that make sense I thought it was a great movie At least it wasn't like a transformers movie (which i like but have to admit) where its pretty much just explosions, foghting robots, and megan fox/rosie huntington-whiteley I respect your opinion about the movie but i dont respect the way you think about it
If people would only just read my other comments... I understand that there was autopilot, but what I was saying was that the movie specifically showed him in the Bat when there was 3 seconds left on the bomb timer. Autopilot does NOT mean he is automatically at a safe distance from a nuclear bomb that has an initial blast radius of at least 3 miles. But, since my first rant, which was made way back in the summer, I have taken a softer outlook on the movie. I eventually came to realize that it isn't as bad as I made it sound. It just disappointed me because it wasn't nearly as good as the Dark Knight. I'm very sorry if I hurt your feelings over a movie. Wow that sounds sarcastic as hell while I'm typing it, but I'm serious. Goodbye everybody.
"The original poster deserves it for trying to get attention, when no one asked for his opinion." WTF, so apparently posting a opinion is trying to get attention according to you? The OP was not trying to get attention, he was just making a post. Even if he was just trying to get attention, he in no way deserves death threats and being broke up with. I get the feeling you are the type that gets offended seeing people dis the movies you like. If that is the case then grow the fuck up. I don't understand why your shitty comment got so many thumbs up.
I love TDK, but as for TDKR it was just alright. The last hour of the movie was amazing and I stand firmly by the fact if they'd chopped out a half hour or more it would've been just as good as TDK. It had serious pacing issues, which at first I thought might just be me being tired, but after sitting through the movie 3 times I always found myself nodding off. You get sucked in at the half way mark, but it wasn't a perfect movie. A lot better than the Avengers though... Also, let's all get out our crosses and crucify everyone who doesn't share our unquestioning love for a movie. /sarcasm
OP never said he hated Batman... He said he didn't like the last Batman movie. I was disappointed by it too, because I expected too much from it, considering how awesomely intense was the Dark Night. The last one is just too long, and goes in every directions. I really liked the plot, but didn't like how it has been directed.
Well I enjoyed the movie. It was not the best of the 3 I thought but still entertaining. Anyway, I agree if your girlfriend dumped you over a movie, trust me, you are better off. This is the type of girls who would have dumped you anyway if you didn’t like her new rainbow nail polish for example. As for the people who sent you threats, again, just unfriend them and feel sorry for them. They clearly need a life…
I find it funny how everyone is voting "deserved it" just because you have your own opinion on a movie. If you're boyfriend breaks up with you for having your own say on a movie, then he's not worth being with. Don't let it get you down, because the whole scenario is asinine.
I agree #203, because OP hated the Batman movie he gets more YDI's than FYL's. That's messed up. OP can't deserve it for having his own opinion. Anyone who votes YDI for this is just a butthurt comic book nerd. But I guess those idiots also have their opinions on whether OP deserves it
Look at the whole picture, People! I HIGHLY DOUBT she left him just b/c of a movie! There is obviously more to her reasoning than he is lettin on! Grow the fuck up! The threats, I'm sure they didn't mean them! If its your friends, it was in good fun! How dumb & fuckibg stupid can y'all be! Damn !
I thought Batman was awesome! Well people have their own opinions..
I hate batman in general he's not even a super hero he's just some wanna be with dumb villains.
Him being human makes me all the more a super hero. Knowing that he can die like all the rest of us, but continues to fight for justice. That's a hero. Some of the other super heroes like superman are way too strong in my opinion. But that's way there's so many different super hero comics etc. My favorite super heroes is the US military that's fights my freedom.
That is not true. A real hero is someone who gives up their life for others, who does what needs to be done. It is not as if he is looking for trouble, it is that he has the resources, talent and abilities to take down the trouble that was there. Gotham has very weird villains in it, people who have no trouble blowing shit up or making people suffer for no other reason than it is amusing. So I think the fact that he knows the world blows, has lost his parents to crime and worked to use his skills to take down people who would hurt others, is what makes him a hero. He puts his job before everything else, he has no real family, no wife, he works at his business and takes down crime. How is that not a hero?
#140 if you take a movie like that seriously then, you have issue. Policing can uses to protect your freedom against other who seek to destroy it. Specially destroying the threat before its gets to us. Have you forgotten 9/11? I don't care what anyone says I support our troops, no matter what. They fight because they are ordered to because they signed up to fight for this country they give up their lives, family, friends, home, car, their live if need to be protect all the ones they love and for their country. That's why their my heroes. They fight we stay safe at home and people like you talk trash on them. However they know this and will still do it because your FREEDOM to say that trash and they fight for it. Think about that before you try to take away from them trying to say there not heroes.
I decided that you deserved it, but your punishment must be more severe...
Seriously??? Wow. People need to get lives. Fuck 'em, OP. You're clearly too good for those morons.
By that I mean anyone who would break up with their boy/girlfriend or threaten their friend over something as trivial as an opinion on a FUCKING MOVIE is clearly too immature and idiotic to deserve a friend or significant other. I don't know about the movie because I haven't seen it yet, but to say these people are acting like children is an insult to children everywhere.
I doubt she broke up with him just because of a movie, there is obviously something more behind her leaving him. Instead of wasting his time posting his pity party, be productive & figure out what other reasons she had for leaving him. Just cuz he didn't tell his whole story, it doesn't give you the right to call people morons!
How could you hate that movie!? It was One of the best movies this year! You deserve it!
