Tim Drake's origin is basically the same thing. Hell, from what I understand, Tim Drake deduced it because he recognized Dcik Grayson's acrobatics from when he was a circus performer, which is even flimsier.

John Blake is basically a mixture between Tim Drake and Terry McGinnis.

Even for Batman deduction it is incredibly far fetched, but in the end it fits the character.

It's so crazy for him to figure out who Batman was but people don't mind other way more implausible events in other films. It's just people wanting to bitch.

Speak for yourself....ruined it ?? :roll:
I didn't say it ruined it for me, nor am I b****ing. I'm just saying that lots, and I mean LOTS (obviously not too many people on here) of people hated that part. Yet I do see where they are coming from. If Blake had said "As soon as I saw you, I knew there was more to you, that you were putting on an act. Then I realized that you're one of the few people in Gotham who has the knowledge, money, resources, and tragic motivations to become a vigilante crimefighter" then it would have been a lot more plausible. Just saying. It was still a great, heartfelt scene.

While it didn't "ruin it" for me, a little bit of phrasing work on that dialogue (even though that scene was still powerful) would've made me a lot happier with how convenient it seemed to be.

Anyone think that Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character was the heart of this film? I thought he nailed it as Blake. He overtook Bruce/Batman as the emotional core of TDKR IMO.

The "heart of Gotham" maybe, but not the film.
