When Bane opens Blackgate, the speech, the music, the rioting. A dark example, but you were bound to your seat.
Bane: "We take Gotham from the corrupt! [The cannons on his Tumblers turn to the prison doors] The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you... the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please!
[The Tumbler blasts away the doors of the prison]
Bane: But start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed!
[Bane's men storm the prison, overpower the guards, and release the prisoners. We see the released criminals being handed assault rifles as they run out of the jail]
Bane: Step forward those who would serve. For an army will be raised.
[A businessman exits his Upper East Side apartment, turns, and sees a large, angry mob walking down the street in his direction]
Bane: The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests....
[Henchmen and his supporters ransack an apartment. One guy tries hiding under a desk but is forcibly pulled and dragged away]
Bane: ...and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure.
[We see a block of upper class people being dragged out of their apartments]
Bane: Courts will be convened.
[A person is tried in Crane's kangaroo court]
Bane: Spoils will be enjoyed.
[Selina Kyle is shown watching, envious, as revelers celebrate and pop champagne bottles]
Bane: Blood will be shed.
''[In an upperclass apartment, a ransacking occurs]
Bane: The police will survive, as they learn to serve "true justice".
[Police officers are shown trapped underground in a tunnel, looking rather hopeless as supplies are lowered down to them]
Bane: This great city... it will endure.
[Bane's henchmen load the nuclear bomb into the back of a truck. ]
Bane: Gotham will survive.
[The camera closes on a shot of the timer ticking down as they lock the doors]
- A meta example for Tom Hardy: He was able to convincingly portray Bane with all his emotions, even the subtle ones, with just his eyes and sometimes his voice. That takes skill.
