More “Dark Knight Rises”

Scipio at The Absorbascon reviews DKR and explains the plot in such a way as to almost force it to make sense.  I generally agree with his take; however, I think Nolan did a very poor job showing it.  Yes, Gotham got rough while held hostage by Bane and his army, but nothing so awful as to suggest that Gotham was uniquely deserving of destruction.  Maybe if the majority of trapped citizenry had been seen to flock to Bane or even just turn brutally on one another, a la No Man’s Land?  Something to indicate that Gothamites are more awful than, say, Clevelanders under similar circumstances.
