I felt very similarly. The movie was good but there is no denying that Bane's character was thrown under the bus at the end of the movie. Basically a radio controlled piece of muscle with no brains. I also never understood why they made it a point to show you that Bruce Wayne's leg brace gave him the ability to kick thru concrete, yet, Batman never used it in battle. I was fully expecting Batman to kick Bane in the balls. I also had a bit of an issue with Bruice Wayne/Batman being portrayed as a physically broken man. Batman has always been known for his gadgets, and logic dictates that if he is physically impaired, he should've relied on said gadgets even more to make up for his impairment, yet, he never used his utility belt. At all. He rarely showed why he is Batman.
Exactly this! I watched the movie last knight and reading some people saying the sewers battle was awesome I expected to see Batman using all his toys against Bane or something like that. Sadly he looked like an ordinary kickboxer, only punches and kicks here and there and was defeated very easily. I know it would had been very difficult to use special effects like in Spiderman, but adding more variety to the battle with his belt would had been great. Oh well, still great movie but I liked TDK better I think. I'll watch it again.
