Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
there's far fewer silly plot contrivances (like the entire police force getting trapped underground, or crime being magically wiped out so as to make Batman no longer necessary, or Bruce having just enough time to heal from his serious back injury and get back to Gotham before the bomb goes off).
Silly plot contrivances? You mean like nobody in a hospital noticing a nurse that conspicuously looks like the Joker in drag? Like all the various criminal groups uniting under a "United Colors of Benetton of Organized Crime" banner? Like a school bus driving out of a hole in the side of a bank and conveniently fitting into a handy gap in a procession of other buses, like nothing about that is in the least bit suspicious? Like literally everything going on with Two-Face?
