AM I THE ONLY ONE COMPLETELY HORRIFIED WITH THE STORYLINE ?
Prior to seeing the movie, I did NO online searching on how it went. No spoilers whatsoever. I wanted no knowledge of the movie whatsoever before seeing it. But based on all the comics I have read, I'd already made a guess on how the movie would go.
Since the movie's announcement, I was completely dreading Talia's appearance in it. (considering all the hints and rumors, it was pretty safe to assume that she would be in it.) Would she be the conflicted love interest she had always been ? Or would she be the enemy she has been depicted as in recent comics ? I could only hope for the best...
SO I JUST GOT BACK FROM SEEING THE MOVIE.
And can I say, aside from all its brilliance, I am completely disappointed in how everything got resolved.
OKAY, I'm sorry. I hate Catwoman. I wish she would die so that it was Talia having the happy ending with Bruce instead of her.
TALIA being the one to lead the attack on Gotham ? FOR HER FATHER ? Are you kidding me ? Despite her love for her father, she HATES what her father does. Isn't that why she moved to Metropolis in the first place ? I mean, I know she's probably stabbed Bruce once or twice, but she ALWAYS picks him over her father. Every single time, it was always Bruce she would choose. And excuse me, Dick, TALIA was the one who persuades Bruce to return to the role of Batman, NOT YOU.
You know how freaking happy I was when I saw Talia and Bruce kiss ? I was like OMG, HOPE ISN'T LOST/clapping and squealing like a little girl.
BUT NOPE. As the movie progresses, the whole Talia and Bruce love affair was NOT built upon any further. (aside from the whole, "I won't forget about you" bit from Bruce near the end.) WHERE IS ALL THEIR BACKSTORY ?
WHEN SHE STABBED BRUCE I ALMOST SCREAMED. NO. NO NO NO. SHE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THE ENEMY, GOD.
Like, she just shows up outta nowhere being like "I HATE YOU BRUCE. YOU KILLED MY DAD. DIE DIE DIE." ? I mean, okay. Her dad died, she's never really been pissed about that in the comics. HE ALWAYS COMES BACK TO LIFE ANYWAY, SO WHATEVER. She has always loved Bruce. From her first appearance, she had been depicted as Bruce's love interest. Not an evil woman set on murdering him. NEVER his enemy. (well, not counting her recent Leviathan adventures.)
THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE "BELOVED" THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE ENTIRE FILM.
&BANE AND TALIA ? ARE YOU FUDGING KIDDING ME ? SHE'S DISGUSTED BY HIM. WHAT THE FUDGE !?
THIS MOVIE MAKES ME SO MAD. GUH.
Can we all just, form an angry mob and slap the poop out of Nolan for forgetting who Talia is, and portraying her so horribly ?
