... That ending, where he finds the thing that was left for him? That was some bad writing right there. There was no reason to make the "reveal" at the end of the movie... The way it was written, JGL's character worked SO much better as a stand-alone police officer. It's like, somewhere along the line, after the movie was completely written, someone said "
you know what would be cool? If Gordon-Levitt's character was actually that other guy all along!
", and Nolan's response was simply "sure, we could do that."
JGL was a very well written cop. He didn't need to be the other thing too, and I think the overall character really suffered as a result. It just felt far too tacked on in order for them to be able to pull the "
Surprise! Now you know we can make 3 more movies focusing on JGL!
" ending. Like, you're 3 movies in, and you know this is going to be the last one starring Bale, officially ending the trilogy, and JUST NOW you want to introduce this angle? Sloppy fan-service writing.
Absolutely 100% this.
