Revealing mistake: When the Joker is having the party with all the balloons, Vicky Vale tries to escape from the gas by getting into a car. If you look at the back window while she is driving off, the window is rolled down, which would have led to her death, not to mention motor vehicles are not air tight to begin with.

Revealing mistake: At the end when they show the Joker dead on the pavement after he fell, look closely during the first few seconds of the shot and you'll see him blink twice. (01:59:05)

Revealing mistake: Harvey Dent and the mayor argue in Dent's office which has an unusual semicircular shape. In the next scene, Alfred uses the telephone in Wayne Manor, and you can see that it's the same room, just with different furniture and dressings. (00:56:10)


Revealing mistake: When the shields of the Batmobile are engaged, the metal plates come from nowhere. There isn't a place for them to come from or go to when taken off. And if you watch carefully, the shields coming from the sides of the Batmobile come out of thin air. (01:09:10)


Revealing mistake: When Jack and his goons are breaking into Axis Chemicals, there's a scene where they're cutting the lock off of a safe. When the safe door is opened, you can clearly see that there is no locking mechanism in the side of the door.

Revealing mistake: When the Joker is in the basement getting surgery, he walks up the stairs laughing and when you see the side of his body before the end of the scene, if you look closely, you can see that his face is still normal Caucasian tone.

Revealing mistake: Right after Joker falls off the top of the cathedral, Batman and Vicky fall too and we catch them three times before Batman's grapple digs into the stone. On the second and third time you can actually notice Vicky's face expression doesn't look one bit scared, so you know they're not falling. You can also see there's a screen in the background. (01:58:40)


Revealing mistake: In the beginning, the first shot we see of Batman (a shot from above where he turns and walks into a doorway, casting a shadow behind him) is quite obviously animated. He literally looks like a cartoon... because he is one in this shot for some reason.

Revealing mistake: When Batman drives the Batmobile into the Axis Chemicals factory, watch closely when he slams through the first gate - you can see the gate is swaying and starting to open before the batmobile hits it, indicating it wasn't really closed and was left unlocked and partially open to make it easier for the stunt-driver to drive the Batmobile through it.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: When the Batjet crashes, if you pay close attention to the scale of the jet, cars and buildings in relation to the scale of the fire and explosions, it is very clear that this scene was created with models.

Revealing mistake: When the reporter dies on air, her face is contorted into the Joker's face. When the camera is in closeup on her face, the "dead" woman's bottom lip moves.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When Jack falls into the chemical vat it's obvious the vat is quite shallow as he doesn't actually sink into the chemicals but instead just kind of lands and then sits there as liquid splashes out around him. To top it off, the subsequent shot of him disappearing into the chemicals is reversed as several bubbles can be seen 'unpopping' and growing smaller.

Revealing mistake: In the film's ending shot, the sky can be seen to flutter as the camera pans up, revealing a backdrop.

Revealing mistake: After the Batmobile's pair of machine guns riddles a straight line of bullet holes through a bay door of Axis Chemicals, it drives in and eventually goes on to blow up the plant. It might seem like the bullet holes themselves would weaken the bay door enough for the Batmobile to push through. But instead - as the bay door falls to the ground - notice how a ready-made seam splits apart directly above the line of bullet holes. (01:34:15)


Batman mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Batman rescues Vicky he has a voice remote for the Batmobile. As the car approaches he orders the car to stop by speaking into the remote and then lowers it to his side. When the camera shot changes showing the car stopping right in front of him, he is still holding the remote to his mouth. (01:09:20)

The Joker: And now, folks, it's time for "Who do you trust!" Hubba, hubba, hubba! Money, money, money! Who do you trust? Me? I'm giving away free money. And where is the Batman? HE'S AT HOME WASHING HIS TIGHTS!

Question: How did Grissom figure out Jack was sleeping with Alicia?

Answer: He was suspicious, but when she first entered the penthouse and Grissom said to leave their business meeting, he noticed the sexy facial exchange Alicia and Jack gave each other.

Answer: Eckhardt ratted Jack out after getting assaulted by him and muttering under his breath: "Where've you been spending your nights?" He watched Jack long enough to get dirt on him and told Grissom that Jack was stealing his woman. Grissom confirmed it by inviting her up to his apartment when Jack happened to be there and watching to see if they recognized each other. Then he immediately set Jack up to take the fall for Axis Chemicals and gave Eckhardt the tip to get there first and assassinate him.
