Pretty decent read, but the author seems to have missed the point of the bomb and bane's speech.

Bane's intention was never to actually give the city back to the people. Bane was more interested in giving people hope of survival before taking it all away in a single blast, much like the Lazarus Pit (e.g. the jail) that he found himself in until he was taken out by Ra's. The light at the top gave people hope, but the inability to reach it crushed those hopes. It was a matter of sadism more than anything else.

"P.S. Oh, also? Batman at one point straight up goes and shoots a dude. Seriously, pay close attention at the moment he saves Joseph-Gordon Levitt’s character. He totally does. There goes your entire first movie, Mr. Nolan."

Um no if you go rewatch the scene he doesnt. A gun shot goes off but it wasnt batman that shoots it!
