Continuity mistake: When Sergeant Gordon puts the jacket around a young Bruce, the jacket is lying smooth around Bruce in the first shots. In the consecutive shot where Gordon says, "It's okay" for the second time, there's suddenly a huge bulge in the jacket on Bruce's left shoulder, but in the next shot, the jacket is smooth again.

Continuity mistake: During the training exercise on the ice, just after Ducard says that the parents' deaths were Dr. Wayne's fault, Bruce gets up and launches after Ducard in anger. In the shot from the front, he doesn't wear any scarf. The next shot from his back reveals that he is wearing a red/gray scarf over his jacket.

Continuity mistake: When Thomas Wayne dies, in his last two close-ups, there's a crack in the asphalt under his head, as well as another one on his left, that weren't there in the previous wideshot.

Continuity mistake: When the burning log falls on Bruce, it lands near his feet. Camera cuts and it's now by his neck.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce is thrown off the truck when released from prison, you can see his bag in the background as he rolls at least 5 feet away to his right. When the angle changes and he's getting up, the bag is right in front of him, if not slightly to his left.

Continuity mistake: After the big explosion, Bruce is shown holding Ducard at the edge of the cliff. Bruce's body is over the edge, only his arm remains on the ice to anchor them. But as he lifts Ducard to safety, Bruce's body is suddenly on the ice, only his right arm is over the edge.

Continuity mistake: As Ducard is sliding down the ice toward the cliff, he's on his front, sliding feet first. Bruce is also on his stomach, but sliding head first. Then, just before Ducard goes over the edge, Bruce is instantly on his back, sliding sideways, right side toward Ducard, just in time to take Ducard's hand, saving him.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce is thrown out the door by Falcone's thugs, he lands next to a white pavement stripe. In the next shot, he is much closer to the end of the stripe than in the previous shot.

Continuity mistake: The woman that shoots Joe Chill pushes the gun all the way against his chest. In the next shot, the gun is at least a foot away from his chest. The scene is shown in real time, and no one moves that quickly.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce defeats the Ra's impostor, the overhead beams collapse down as Ra's rolls onto his left side, head turned further left toward the floor to shield his face. As this shot ends, the debris settles, and we can see Ra's does not change position. But a close-up shows that Ra's is now flat on his back, head turned to his right.

Continuity mistake: When Gordon gives Batman the Joker card, which is in a small, sealed, tight evidence bag, the card switches position in the bag between the shots of Batman taking it and him turning the card around.

Continuity mistake: As Ducard goes over the cliff's edge, Bruce is dragged over the edge in the distant shots, with only his left arm still on top of the cliff, holding the knife in the ice. But the close-ups (prior to the big explosion) show only his right arm and leg are over the edge with Ducard, while his body remains on top of the ice.

Revealing mistake: As Ducard slides down the icy slope toward the cliff, a brief shot from Bruce's viewpoint shows Ducard from a top-down perspective, revealing that Liam Neeson has been replaced by a stuntman with far more hair and no sign of Liam's receding hairline.

Revealing mistake: When Bruce Wayne is heading to the hearing at the courthouse, he checks his revolver to make sure it's loaded. His intent is to execute Joe Chill for killing his parents, so he would need a working gun. But when he opens the cylinder of the revolver to make sure it's loaded, you can see that all of the bullets have had the primer removed (the end of each bullet casing has a hole in it.) This is done to make each round impossible to fire, for safety on the set.

Revealing mistake: When Bruce is told to execute the man in the ninja temple, watch the blade closely as he raises it up - the edge is ground down flat for the safety of the actors, he wouldn't be able to cut butter with that sword.

Mistakes

When Batman is chased by the cops while he is trying to save Rachel, he reaches the roof of a parking lot and stops. A cop orders him to switch off the engine of his vehicle and get out. Later when Batman is chased inside a tunnel, we see a cop asking on his radio what the Batmobile looks like. The Batmobile then zooms past him and he says "never mind". The only problem is that it's the same cop both times, so he knew full well what the Batmobile looks like when it stopped in front of him initially. Probably caused by the order of those sequences being switched in editing, but still a mistake.

Trivia

Some people wanted the Batmobile to be computer generated, but director Christopher Nolan refused, so it was built from scratch. It can do 0-60 in 6 seconds.
