20 Best Bad-Ass Film Quotes Of 2012

1. €œI'm Gotham's reckoning, here to end the borrowed time you've all been living on.€

Gothams Reckoning Bane (Tom Hardy) €“ The Dark Knight Rises The first three lines announced everything we needed to know about Nolan's final big villain (or so some thought), and were a major part of the film's marketing, amping up the cool factor considerably and promising a fitting end to the Dark Knight arc. How were we to know he'd be cruelly undermined by a narrative twist that devolved him massively and took away all of his impact until his final, embarrassingly simple end?

2. €œBig things have small beginnings.€

Prometheus David David (Michael Fassbender) €“ Prometheus Big things like huge pertinent questions hanging over the end of the film, you mean David? It might have been a hugely frustrating experience, but Prometheus still had its moments, and there was enough in there, for good or bad to make it one of the stand-out cinematic moments of the year. The android's musings on the nature of existence proved a particularly loaded moment, even if the script's insistence in regard to the film's relationship to the Alien films is a little on the nose.
