We also have a silly supply of new Bat vehicles that just come out of nowhere near the end of the film and most look like rejected “Power Ranger” vehicles. There’s the new over the top Bat mobile, two new motorbikes, and two new devices meant for traveling on ice terrain.
The action scenes in this film are also way over the top, with the characters pulling off absurd stunts and the climax is a circus of flashy effects, over the top stunts and some really awkward fighting choreograph. I do love the final scene of batman pleading to Freeze to become a better man, this was a fairly well acted scene, with some genuinely good dialog and it’s always awesome to have a hero and villain come to an understanding and forgive each other. This one little scene really shows what a good film this could have been but ultimately failed to be.
There are some fun bits of trivia and some other elements that are worth mentioning. There’s a scene in a villain locker room where we see both The Riddlers costume and Two faces costume from “Batman Forever”. Also, there's two police men that put Mr. Freeze in his cell and one of them is played by Governor Jesse Ventura. Interesting to see a governor and future governor in the same scene, even more interesting is that this is the third film with the two of them together. The first of cores is the 1987 classic “Predator”. Great movie and I remember thinking to myself, how cool it was to see two future governors in the same film, then in that same year there was “The Running Man”, in that film the two governors got into a fist fight. Then finally, there’s this, so I guise you can call it a trilogy of these two actors/ governors in the same film. The song during the end credits titled “Gotham City” and performed by R. Kelly, is actually quiet good. It fits with the character, puts me in the right mood and if a film can keep me watching the credits, it can’t be that bad.
P.S. Is it just me or dose Bane look like he could have been played by Hulk Hogan?
