I don't know if anyone has mentioned this as I only skimmed thru the thread.

But there were two things that completely ruined the movie for me:

1. The "brushing away" of Bruce's knee injury.
2. The "brushing away" of Bruce's back injury.

If you have a knee in which all cartilage has been destroyed, you are NOT hooking up some kind of spring activated brace to kick harder, not unless you want to experience excruciating pain while doing so.

And if your back gets snapped in half, AND you are lucky enough that the spinal cord was somehow untouched, you will NOT recover unless trained surgeons get in there and rebuild your vertebrae and spinal discs!! Probably having to use artificial ones.

Dammit it's pissing me off thinking about this right now! That so ruined the movie for me. I've only seen it once. And this is from a guy that watched Batman Begins 11 times in the theatre, and TDK 4 times.

I agree, the medical issues were handwaved too much.
Meh, he's Batman when the hell has something being unrealistic stopped him.
