5 Worst Mistakes in 'The Dark Knight Rises'
#4 Bruce Wayne's Recovery
Do you recall how Bruce Wayne begins started the movie with a significant limp and a cane? He was out of commission for 8 years! It would be hard enough for an athlete to recover after 8 months of inactivity, let alone 8 years. And he managed to fix all that simply with some cool-looking electronic brace? What's worse is that he didn't even need the brace after he recovered from a broken back for his final fight with Bane. It's like they wrote this piece specifically to BE a plot hole! They even threw in how the doctor couldn't approve him for sports, let alone bare-knuckle brawling with multiple criminals at a time. What was the point of this? Why waste 8 years of Batman's history on a sob story over some girl who didn't love him?
Not only did this make the story less believable, it ruined the possibility of exploring more of the Nolan universe. Think of all the possibilities and stories that would have happened if Batman was active for 8 years before the movie!
