The Dark Knight Rises

Continuity mistake: When Catwoman is with Bruce Wayne at the charity ball, she has red painted nails. After stealing the Lamborghini Aventador, she is lacking nail varnish, even though she is still wearing her charity ball mask.

Factual error: When the bridges are blown up, some of the bridges are suspension bridges, but the bridge only fails at the point of the explosion. The main horizontal supports are severed, but large portions of the bridge remain magically aloft. The nature of suspension bridges means the remaining vertical cables and road deck would fail as well, resulting in the loss of the bridge between the two main pillar supports.

Continuity mistake: The fuselage of the plane is hanging straight down when Bane exits with the doctor, but it should be at an angle to the left, as we see when they are dragged behind the bigger plane.

Revealing mistake: When Catwoman and Batman are fighting Bane's henchmen on the rooftop, pay close attention to the guys in the background right before Batman knocks Catwoman's gun away: you can see that the henchman well out of Batman's reach on the far left falls over like he's been hit by a punch, but he couldn't be. Also, no gunshots are heard at that point, so he couldn't have been shot either.

Visible crew/equipment: When mercenaries arrive on the stadium stands, there is a visible vertical black edge of green-screen panel at the bottom right corner of the screen.

Continuity mistake: During the raid on the stock exchange, watch as Bane snaps the man's neck and slams his head on the table, you can see without placing his finger on the print scanner, but it appears there on the next shot.

Alex Abreu

Continuity mistake: When the girl climbs out of the prison her head gear is not joined under her chin. In the next shot when she covers her head, the bottom is now joined together.

Continuity mistake: As Batman begins to approach Bane during the final battle, be on the look out for a certain extra (a middle-aged man with a grey beard and brown vest). You'll see him fighting behind Batman...only to be seen fighting behind Bane in the very next shot.

Audio problem: When the first stock broker is shot, the time between the shot and the recoil is far too long; over half a second, when it should have been instantaneous.

Plot hole: During the chase after the stock exchange attack, Batman ends up flying the batwing out from an alleyway after being chased there by police. But it can't fly itself (part of the plot) and the attack took place during the day, meaning that even if Batman somehow planned for this, he must have just stuck the batwing in an alley for a fairly long period of time and somehow no-one stumbled across it, despite being in a busy part of the city.

Continuity mistake: It's a bright sunny day when Bane enters the stock exchange. When the police turn up moments later it's raining, with a wet road and puddles. When Bane exits on the motorbike, the roads are bone dry.

Continuity mistake: When Selina looks at Bruce's arrow target, Bruce then shoots an unexpected arrow and hits the 7 on the target. In the next shot, the arrow is at least five inches away from the 7.

Continuity mistake: In the aerial shot it shows police cars stopped in front of the moto, but in a shot from the front they've moved several metres further on.

Character mistake: When Bruce is looking up information on Selina Kyle on his computer in the Batcave, at one point, "Kyle" is misspelled as "Klye."

Continuity mistake: During Bane and Batman's first battle Selina is behind Batman when the fight starts, then Bane's back is to her later, but Bane and Batman don't switch positions on the catwalk.

Continuity mistake: During the stock exchange scene, after Bane says "Time to go mobile", the man with the laptop closes the laptop in the background and then does it again in closeup.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox are discussing the fusion reactor in Fox's office, Wayne's hand keeps switching from being on his cane, to being placed somewhere out of frame.

Factual error: In the scene at the airport just before Selina Kyle is arrested, an Easyjet plane can be seen outside parked on the apron. Easyjet do not fly to the USA. The scene was filmed at Stansted Airport in Essex, from where Easyjet fly most of their European routes.

Continuity mistake: When Selina Kyle and Daggett fall onto the elevator, the shot cuts away before Kyle gets up. Yet in the following shot, she is fully up and standing within range of the cables.

Revealing mistake: When Bane first breaks into the stock exchange, he forces one of the guards into shooting his gun. Two mistakes: there is no flash or muzzle flare, and the gun has an insane amount of recoil. It's not a cannon, it's a 9mm. It's also not the guard being startled by Bane: Bane is the one holding his arm.

Revealing mistake: When Blake and Gordon watch Bane on TV during Gotham's siege, a grey (sometimes white) square is reflected on Gordon's glasses. It's either a lighting screen or the proof that the TV is turned off and the image on it is added on post-production.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Blake is talking with the orphan on the bench, the fence behind them is totally still. In the next shot, the fence is suddenly vibrating.

Audio problem: When Batman and Bane are fighting on the bridge, 3 punches before Batman falls over the bridge, he swings a punch at Bane where he misses by far, yet the sound is heard and Bane reacts to it.

Sacha

Audio problem: Inside the well, when Bruce is about to take the final leap, the inmates are heard shouting "Rise!" in one single perfect cry, yet when the angle focuses on them no-one's mouth is in sync with the sound. Furthermore, no one's mouth is in sync with the inmate next to him.

Sacha

Audio problem: After the military tell Blake that he can't cross the bridge with the kids, he tells the boys to get in the bus. The second time he says it, there's a side angle of Blake where his mouth is not moving at all.

Sacha

Audio problem: When Batman and Catwoman meet at the sewers, the angles of her swap between frontal and side shots. During a side shot, she says the word "slate" but the audio is way out of sync with her lips.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Bruce is meeting with Lucius in the office at Wayne Tower, the book on the seat next to Bruce changes positions during their conversation.

Revealing mistake: During the party, the second time Gordon gives a speech praising Dent, a lighting screen is reflected on his glasses, which disappears in opposite shots.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: During the intro sequence, the camera points upward inside the bottom plane, allowing the viewer to see outside the hole, where nothing apparently exists except blue sky. Cut to an outside shot, and the suggested angle of the plane suggests we should be able to see the top plane outside the hole. Yet whenever we are inside, the top plane and the wires holding the planes together all mysteriously disappear.

MadJax

Continuity mistake: After Batman and Selina escape Bane's men on the roof-top, Batman flies with Selina in "the bat" and drops her off before returning to the batcave. When he arrives in the cave, he emerges from "the bat" without his mask on and examines the data he obtained from the stock exchange heist. At this point he should still have on the dark black eye makeup he typically wears under the mask, even without the mask on. We are to believe he returned to the cave directly after leaving Selina, and it would not make sense that in flying back home he removed his face paint.
