Honestly him and Ann Hathaway were the only two actors I liked in that awful film.
I found him redundant. Really just a tool in the film to move the lame story forward. He basically replaces Gordon for most of the film and is otherwise useless.
Ann was pretty. Ann was another tool though. She was just there to get Bruce going. But... just a tool. A pretty one.
He's an okay actor, but really, he has no real quality at this point to be a lead. When he's much older... maybe. So I hate all this talk one way or another about him as a lead.
