All of Bane's 85 lines of muffled badassery from The Dark Knight Rises (CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS).
Honestly, I didn't have any issues understanding what he said. Sounded pretty darn clear to me.
Neither did i, its just a strange (but awesome) voice that you have to get used to. "Your punishment must be more severe" works well here with all the people that don't like his voice, yet they still watch the film... :)
I didn't hear a thing. The cinema I was in had the worst sound system ever. I complained after and they admitted they have faulty equipment and are having it fixed but its broken for now. They gave me free tickets for when they fix it. Shame I didn't have a clue what Bane said :( so I need the host to pay his server bill asap
I understood every word he said. I don't know why anyone would say any different unless they had a problem with their hearing in the first place then I could understand.
I will say that it was harder when that prologue came out a while ago, but they obviously fixed that.
I understood every word he said but I did not like his voice. I thought he sounded like a mad scientist. Almost like Richtofen from nazi zombies.
That's actually something I liked about it. Don't know exactly why, but I did.
He was doing a broad Sean Connery.
Same, also didn't have any with the other voice.
Only line I though was different was I thought he said "thrashing this plane" instead of "crashing this plane". Works either way.
Just to be clear. We aren't saying he was hard to understand, we loved his voice. The article was to show how awesome his lines were if you forgot them.
You mean awesome lines like: "I'm going to read this letter I pulled off of Commissioner Gordon, it has absolutely no consequence to the plot because it will not even come close to tarnishing Gordon's reputation... but I'm going to read it to you anyway because I am eeeeviiiil like that."
I don't remember that line
It had massive consequences to the plot, people had being jailed without bail due to the dent act. When it came to light that he was a binary lunatic/murderer it was impossible to legally keep those people behind bars.
@ krazy You mean all those peeps that were going to be blown away by a big bomb anyway? Yeah, the whole film didn't make a lick of sense, but I quite enjoyed it and found Bane extremely menacing, until the last bit...
really liked bane's voice in the film and his lines were really good. the best line that was so memorable to everyone was "We will destroy Gotham. And then, when it is done, and Gotham is ashes – then you have my permission to die."
i liked the voice but like @alycakes said was a bit hard for me to hear since i am only running on one cochlear implant and a hearingaid with of the side thats losing hearing day by day lol badass voice from what i heard though there should be theatres with english captions on it, but seeing the audience i dont see anyone with problems like me so not going to happen i guess lol
Bane was awesome and tom hardy played him so well but saying that this is tom hardy he plays every character well!!

Personally, I only understood about 70% of his dialogue. I don't have any serious hearing problems (though listening to loud(ish) music has definitely affected my ears over the years). Part of that, I think, had to do with the speaker balancing in the theater I saw it in. It was an AMC, not a cheap theater, but not particularly high-end either. It seemed to me that the bass was boosted quite a bit and the speakers were also pretty sibilant (Ssssnakessss). This muffled a lot of his dialogue and made it run together. Some scenes were better than others. Of course, his mouth is covered in the film, so you can't read his lips in hard to understand places. So yeah, this article is actually pretty handy for anyone like myself. Unfortunately it's down at the moment, so I can't actually read it. However, if I still have trouble understanding him at home, I'll just turn on the subtitles.
His voice was clearly (at least in the high end theater we watched it at) added in afterwards and changed. It was so clear that it annoyed me. It stuck out and you could tell it was added after. It'd be interested to hear Christian Bales groans....lines without him groaning and see how those sound haha
I heard every single word. Oddly the only thing muffled was what Christian Bale says near the end of the movie. That was muffled.
I understood everything, it was different but quite engaging
Yes, Bane was great and it was fairly easy to understand what he said. It almost reminded me of Darth Vader except without all that heavy breathing.
Good news a bad news, you lovely people have made this the 'hottest article'! Bad news, my site is now down.... I'm working on getting it back up so stay tuned :) Sorry!
