Despite the tragic and senseless shooting in Aurora, Colorado at a Dark Knight Rises showing that left 12 people dead and over 50 people injured, the film managed to perform very well at the box office.
Although the film hasn’t received universal acclaim, reception has been positive for the most part. For the people that aren’t as enthusiastic about the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s reboot trilogy, one of the main sticking points is the relative weakness of the film’s main villain, Bane. Personally, I found Bane to be a compelling addition to the series, but many feel that the character lacked the proper punch, even if Heath Ledger’s masterful turn as the Joker in The Dark Knight set the bar unfairly high.
I guess we could put the guy behind this parody video in that camp. His rendition of the Guns n’ Roses classic “November Rain” asks why Nolan couldn’t have picked someone better-known to attempt to bring Gotham’s reckoning.
When I look into his muzzle, I can see a man deranged
But Nolan, when I see him, I have to ask, hey, what’s his name, oh yeah
I know he’s not the Joker, Mr. Freeze, or Hugo Strange
And it’s hard to fear for Batman, when I don’t remember Bane.
Yeah, his Axl Rose voice leaves a lot to be desired, but hey, I guess he has a point.
