Oh yeah, one small nitpick I had: I didn't like how after "I'm Batman," they had to throw in a humorous line of "Nice coat"...like really?
Overall, I still give the movie a 9/10
I actually like the microwave emitter. It doesn't make sense if you think about it too hard but I felt it was a different kind of device and creative. "Nice coat" is one of the humorous lines in the trilogy that doesn't bother me. I could do without almost every other cheesy line in the film though like "can you drive stick" and "I gotta get me one of those." But at the same time all those cheesy lines I complain about in the trilogy have led to some fun and amusing conversations. And for the most part they don't take that much away from the films credibility.
If I do have a gripe it's that the film could have used more Scarecrow/Crane. And while I like that he disappeared, perhaps there could have been a little more action from him before Katie zaps him into the night. And I definitely prefer The Dark Knight suit. I don't really like the Begins suit at all actually. At some angles it looks fantastic but when I get a good look at it, it appears bulky and cheap. That's what I love about the TDK suit. It holds up even in broad daylight. He couldn't have worn the Begins suit in the interrogation room with Joker or facing Bane in front of City Hall.
