Do you guys think the scene in The Dark Knight Rises where Bane breaks Batman's back was too abrupt and anti-climatic or should have been more emotive and longer?

It could have been better.

Not nearly as good as it's comic equivalent.

I did not like it. I'm not asking for slow motion, because that does not suit Nolan's Batman, but it could have been better. I wanted to see Batman broken over Bane's knee, not just slammed into it. Very anti-climactic, and the entire... I guess the first third of the movie was incredibly rushed to the point where I couldn't take anything in.

My mom gasped out loud when it happened, so I think maybe we are jaded to it, expected more.

I guess from that perspective it might be a little shocking, but really, everybody who follows comics saw that scene coming a mile away. It just didn't do the moment justice.

I actually don't understand this scene. If Bane broke Batman's back, shouldn't Batman be paralyzed or invalid or stuff like that?

When I saw the title I thought of this.

@JimTheSurfer: It's called the magic rope of healing.

I found the way it was filmed to be slightly distracting and a bit to close, I get that it was a very confined space and the fight was supposed to be like that, but I felt a lot of it was slightly underwhelming.

there was a part of that scene where he throws one of those smoke thingies...the smoke was so thin, I don't see how it would have distracted anyone...

If I recall correctly his back wasn't broken. The guy in the pit told him that some vertebrae had become dislocated. No back break.

It's been a while since I saw it, but I believe that I did like that scene. He really got his butt whooped for a couple of minutes and then it happened. I don't think it was too abrupt, I think the quickness of the fight adequately showed Bane's superiority.
 
But again, I saw it just the one time in theatres on opening night. My memory's a little fuzzy.

I thought it was a truly epic moment. The effects could of been a little better, but it was still great. Easily among the greatest moments of the film.

It was mostly perfect. Camera angle was Meh, but the actual slam was perfect. Nolanverse is grounded in reality, and there is no way any practical fighter would break someone's back like Bane did in the comics.

It was incredibly anti-climatic.

I think if it had a little slow mo and panning out to Bruce's face during the impact would have been a little better. On the other hand, would have become unintentionally hilarious if his facial expression read to something like. "OoOoOoOoOoOOoOoOoOOoohhhhhhhh my back is broken!!!!"

Honestly I can't remember it, but I 'm sure I agree with the statement above.
