Yes head to toe.
really? even a straight shot?Originally Posted by Hellstormer
I'm pretty sure.Originally Posted by Predator117
ok, cuz it said it wasnt in the movie, but i dont know exactly what their idea of a "straight shot" was. like a point blank shot or a shot straight at som1 at a 90 degree angle.? and if it is that they meant, i dont think that would be true because the visual guide said it stops anything but a point blank-range shot. idunnoOriginally Posted by Hellstormer
Well if they really want realism it's not going to be THAT bulletproof and THAT lightweight but I digress. I imagine that the suit's as bulletproof as it needs to be for the story.
The suit from the Burton films seemed pretty durable, it took point blank range shots a couple of times. Does he actually get shot at any point in the Nolan movie?
Omg I feel like such an idiot, I thought the topic was "Batsuit off of Batman Beyond":p, you can just ignore my previous posts.
very true, cuz i thought of that myself that ok, maybe it isnt, but then i watched my old Batman movies and saw Keaton got shot several times at point blank and a straight shot at that. and got back up w/o a wound and beat those guys up. so why wouldnt this one be bulletproof?(except for a point blank range shot which it specifically states for this one several times, but a normal shot at a 90 degree angle, yes i think he could take that)Originally Posted by The Batman
and yes, i believe Batman got shot once in Batman Begins when he first appeared at the docks. by that 1 guy w/ the submachine gun taht goes "where are you?!". Batman: "Here." hehe love that. he shot him in the back of the shoulder when he got a glimpse of Batman lurking around on a grapnel wire, cuz that afternoon when he woke up with his shirt off, he had those giant bruises.

I think by "straight shot" they mean if you just stand there and willingly allow them take aim at you straightforward, whereas its different when you're moving and you take bullets from angular aims.Originally Posted by Batman Begins
idunno, its hard to say. in fact i think ive changed my mind about this whole issue. Tim Burtons Batman was a little far-fetched like with the batwing getting shot down with a gun that big and batman missing him with all those weapons locked on, getting shot at point blank range and surviving. the only way that could happen is if the entire suit was covered in kevlar as thick as a bulletproof vest. and a suit like that would be impossible to move in. the dog catching the electric batarang in his mouth in BR, and the line gun in BR he uses to save the Ice Princess and it doesnt even hook on in the back on another wall, so theres no way he could have slid down it horizontally. and in Batman Begins, Nolan went for a more believable version of Batman, so i dont think it was fully bulletproof.
idunno, if youre perpendicular to your target i dont think it would make a difference if theyre moving or not. because all you have to do is turn the direction of the barrel, and its a straight shot again.Originally Posted by CapFan

probably s stupid question, but what is a 90 degree shot? I mean, what plane is considered and what angle are you measuring?
90 degree shot=level ground shot. Batman and the gunman are both on the ground facing each other. but when Batmans up on top of a roof or something or swinging or hanging on a grapnel wire, hes at an angle from the gunmen, and thats not a straight shot, so thats when hes bulletproof.Originally Posted by wes_rk
when he says 'straight shot' I imagine he means 'point blank' range.
There is momentum loss as a bullet travels. It isn't a lot, regardless still enough to kill, but there is that initial kick out that, and again, I IMAGINE, is enough to peirce the armour.
