The Dark Knight Rises Bane by donchild The Dark Knight Rises Bane by donchild
Having seen The Dark Knight Rises a few times now I have to say that Tom Hardy's performance as Bane has left quite an impression!

Chris Nolan's Batman movies have adapted & interpreted classic Bat foes such as The Joker, Two Face, Scarecrow & Ras Al Ghul in a manner that honour's their comic book counterparts whilst elevating them to new heights through excellent writing, direction & top notch acting. As a comic comic villain I never felt the same power & thrill with Bane on the printed page as with the above named rogues however in TDKR I saw a text book example of taking in my opinion a sub par character from the comic book source material & transforming that character into something extraordinary in the cinematic medium.

Whilst the movie overall really won me over it was Hardy & Nolan's Bane that really blew me away!

And kudos to Anne Hathaway who completely knocked it out of the park as a very definitive Catwoman.

Too bad we didn't get Bane vs Joker! What a meeting that would have been if not for the tragic death of Heath Ledger. :(

I wonder myself if circumstances were different what that movie would have been like. Still the final movie turned out to be a terrific final part of the overall story imo.

I don't know if it was intentional, but I like how you exaggerated his facial expression. His eyes are even MORE intimidating.

Thank you, yes I did put a bit of extra emphasis around the eyes, that's what really drew me to the ref pic,the intensity of expression.
