"Batman defeats Bane using gadgets" is a different movie, one that I personally feel is considerably less interesting. You may have a different opinion about that, but when all is said and done it's still a different movie.
But did Batman
even actually defeat Bane? It took Selena on the gimmicky Batpod shooting Bane with a cannon to finally put him down.
The difference is academic. In the end, there was a Batman and there was no Bane.
