Is the real world full of people ready to believe in good?

@barretstrife: @rabumalal: @yeimsick: Okay a little confused here. Is Yes in response to the title? Meaning they WOULD. Or is Yes in response to the OP? Meaning they wouldn’t?

@barretstrife: Why did Christopher Nolan make his movie so unrealistic?

No, they wouldn't blow each other up.

And why are the title and OP question completely different lol.

The scene was unrealistic IMO, especially the part with prisoners (I mean there are probably some prisoners who would decide like that but majority of murderers, gangsters, etc. accepting that decision isn't probable). Tbh it's one of reasons I don't consider TDK a great movie if we take Ledger's performance aside.

Yeah, I'm pretty confident that the people on the civilian boat would almost immediately press the detonator and kill the prison boat.

I don't think the guards on the prison boat would. Unless the guys on duty are real shitholes they wouldn't blow up a passenger boat for convicts. Passenger boat not sure.

Depends on who actually gets the remote. There are people on boats who would blow the other up and people who would throw it overboard.

@the_hajduk: I would hope that I would have the strength to pull the detonator and prevent our boat from dying with them.

I agree. Everyone is different and depends on the individual with the remote.

Sadly, it's more likely that real life people would blow the other boat up. That moment was powerful and satisfying though, and showed Joker that there are still people in the world that believe in good.

Yep and get everyone killed in the process. I believe the Joker was tricking them and if they pushed the button their ship would explode.

@crater_maker: I think I heard from someone that the writers confirmed that whatever boat got blown up first, Joker would've blown the second one up anyway. What a monster.

I’m pretty sure they said this in the movie. Joker wasn’t about to let those people escape.

Chaos would at least erupt. Highly likely an explosion would occur.

I believe civilians(including me) would turn on the detonator in general.

Well with the limited information given I would be worried it might be a trick and the detonator may blow up our ship instead of the other one. Don't know if the average civilian would think about it like that though.

@the_hajduk:

I interpreted the scene as Joke was going to blow one up randomly so he could lie and say his point was proven. But that is also a possibility

Depends really. Word of a mad terrorist would make a lot of people hesitate, simply because their safety isn't guaranteed.

The prisoner who threw the detonator out knew what was coming. He said it very clearly that the prisoners would eventually blow the other boat up.

However civilians blowing the boat is unrealistic because it'd obviously come with tons and tons of criminal charges after which the person who blew up the boat would spend an eternity in prison.

On top of that if people understood anything there was a chance that both boats would blow anyways.

So even if people weren't gonna blow up the boats because they're good people they won't blow it due to other reasons
