BANE VS BATMAN
“The shadows betray you because they belong to me!”
We waited years for the follow up to 2008’s The Dark Knight and what a follow up it was. The Dark Knight Rises was a thrilling way to bring Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy to an end. It was a bitter sweet end as Nolan’s brilliance will never again guide a Batman movie. It’s a series of epic films that brought us so many incredible moments. So it’s fitting that my favorite movie moment of 2012 come from The Dark Knight Rises.
The second that gate slammed behind Batman trapping him in a cage with Bane, I was at the edge of my seat. It was time for a battle we were promised for years. Bane vs Batman. Who would come out on top? Would Bane break batman’s back? Could Bruce Wayne rise to the challenge?
It’s my favorite fight in the entire trilogy by far because of the physical threat Bane is to Batman. He’s trained by the same people and angry. I’m pretty sure Bane would win in a fight with Ra’s Al Ghul. Regardless, it was fantastic to watch a fight that Batman could lose. The suspense of the scene is truly remarkable and the lack of a sound track adds to the phenomenal atmosphere. Not too mention, Bane’s clever taunting of Bruce Wayne throughout the battle.
My favorite movie moment of 2012. Bane vs Batman.
