People are saying Christopher Nolan film has the 'worst death scene' of all time

The ending to Christopher Nolan's 2012 movie left some fans unhappy

Christopher Nolan might have a series of prestigious awards under his belt, but the director doesn't always get it right.

I think we can all admit that it's extremely rare when he doesn't, with movies like Inception, Tenet, Interstellar, Dunkirk and, most recently, Oppenheimer being some of his best credits to date.

Nolan was also the brains behind the well-loved Batman franchise with Christian Bale as the lead.

Over the best part of a decade, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises were all released and quickly became cult classics for DC fans in particular.

All three films boasted an all-star cast alongside Bale. These included the late Heath Ledger as The Joker, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Gary Oldman as James Gordon and Tom Hardy as Bane.

But the star-studded cast couldn't help Nolan escape one scene that undeniably wasn't his best - and fans are still talking about it to this day.

The third and final movie in Nolan's Batman trilogy was The Dark Knight Rises, where Marion Cotillard starred as Talia al-Ghul.

Spoiler alert for anyone who hasn't seen the 12-year-old movie, but Cotillard's character ends up dying in a scene that's since been labelled as 'the worst death scene in history of cinema'.

Sharing a snippet of the controversial scene on X in recent days, a self-proclaimed 'film addict' wrote: "How is it that a director like Christopher Nolan shot the worst death scene in history of cinema?"

The tweet has since been liked 21,000 times, proving that they're not alone in their thoughts.

"Even Catwoman could not watch the whole scene," one person replied with a screenshot of Hathaway's character looking away.

"I think by this point he was just desperate to be done with the whole thing. 10 years of your life is a long time," added someone else.

A different person echoed: "I was a little disappointed with that scene!"

Elsewhere, some argued that it was the acting that was the issue, rather than the direction.

"That could be possibly the best he could get from the actress," one person pondered.

"I think it’s the acting," agreed another.

Despite the scene in question, The Dark Knight Rises still went down a storm with fans in general and boasts a 90 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning Nolan must have done something right...
