Ra's, Joker, or Bane- Which did you like the most?
That's a tough one for me, they are my three favorite batman villains. Liam Nieeson was fantastic as Ra's, but I do wish he got more screen time in Begins. Ledger's portrayal of Joker was sensational and horrific at the same time. Was very impressed with the job he did, especially because I hated the idea of him playing Joker when he was originally cast. I liked Nolan's more realistic vision of Bane more so than the over the top one you see in like Arkham City. Tom Hardy was wonderful as Bane, He was menacing and vicious. The fight scenes he had in Rises were by far the best of the Trilogy. If I'm going with sheer individual performance, I've got to go with Heath Ledger as the Joker. Favorite villain interpretation, Ra's loses out to Bane simply because he did not have a great amount of screen time.
I know I'm in the minority, but I think that the Joker was a little overhyped. My preference of the villains in order goes:
1. Bane 2. Two-Face 3. Joker 4. Ra's 5. Scarecrow 6.Talia Al Ghul
I loved the top 5 though, so the ranking is in no way a reflection of not liking them. Talia is the only one I wasn't crazy about.
Personally, I think Bane was one of the high points of TDKR.His voice, brutality, and intelligence just made for a imposing villain in a way the Joker could never be. I may change my views on this later, but he is my favorite villain of the trilogy.
1. Bane- Hardy did such a great job in portraying Bane. He was intelligent, calculating, ruthless, brutal, and had the best fight scenes in the trilogy.
2. Two Face: Eckhart is severely underrated in that performance
3. Joker- Ledger is a little overrated in his performance. Is it great? Absolutely. It's not overwhelmingly great the more I see the movie though. I think Ledger's death had a lot to do with people's acclaim for him.
Ra's, he was easily the smartest of the bunch and had reasons which he could defend for why he wanted to do things. Bane seemed more of a pawn, and Joker should have been taken out much easier but Bruce is restrained when it comes to him.
