Bane: Theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated... but we are initiated, aren't we Bruce? Members of the League of Shadows!
Bane: And you betrayed us!
Bruce Wayne: You were excommunicated... by a gang of psychopaths!
Bane: I AM the League of Shadows, and I'm here to fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny!
Bane: You fight like a younger man, with nothing held back. Admirable but mistaken.
[Batman uses an EMP device to cut the lights]
Bane: Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING!
[grabs Batman from the shadows and continues to beat him]
Bane: The shadows betray you, because they belong to me!
I have to admit that upon seeing the film, I was disgusted with it - yep, that was the feeling. Why? I was expecting an outright sequel to The Dark Knight, but what Chris Nolan (who directed, co-produced and co-wrote the film) did was to make The Dark Knight Rises much more in-tune with Batman Begins (which is the first movie of the trilogy), adding elements from how The Dark Knight ended, the whole Harvey Dent/Two Face debacle. For this, I thank him a lot!
