@asian_pride: He did deserve a more fitting end after not only besting Batman but physically destroying him.. I like the idea of Joseph Gordon Levitt finding the Batcave, re-enforcing the idea that Batman lives on regardless of the man under the hood.. I really hope it doesn't lead to a sequel, This movie closes it out pretty good..
@Watcherg44: Yeah but with the first fight , no matter what Batman did he just could not overcome Bane's raw power and speed.. which was foreshadowed by Alfred mentioning it and how he hasn't been Batman for a long time, that his body is frail and broken from the experience.. So the fact that he came back and overcame Bane with relative ease is a bit far removed from the monster they have created Bane to be
I think my main problem with the Bane end is that I felt that his mask is analogous to the Joker's Scar its a feature that serves a purpose and a meaning but the origin is never conveyed to the viewer.. When the Joker asks "Wanna know how I got these scars?" and precedes to recount false stories about it create his identity, He is the man with the scars but why and how, but you never need to know to enjoy that character.. and I felt the same with Bane's mask, but that moment they tell his back story and show him unmasked, humanises a character that was a monster, and takes that meaning away from him..
