Corrected entry: When Batman saves Robin from falling during the climax, right around when Robin says "Thanks", you can see that both the Batman and Robin costumes have hidden "vent-holes" cut into the underarms (likely to help the actor's skin "breathe" and to help air circulation keep them cool in the heavy costumes), with nothing but black cloth underneath.
Corrected entry: When the Riddler and Two Face sit down to play Battleship with the Bat-Boat and Bat-Plane, how did they know two ships would be coming? Robin did not exist until Batman was about to leave to rescue Chase, so technically the game shouldn't exist and the two villains should only be expecting Batman.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, as Batman plummets to save Robin, the ropes around Robin's wrists change length! At first they're short and his wrists are within just a few inches of each other, and then the ropes are much longer, long enough in fact to allow him to swing his hands under his feet and above his head with no problem!
Corrected entry: A conservative estimate of the acid-filled vault's weight is about 4 tons, most likely much more (a previous corrector suggested it was a special light-weight safe that Two-face installed. You can tell from Batman's difficulty in lifting the door that it is solid metal). The strongest industrial cable would need to be at least 1/2 inch thick to hold the weight, even more considering it would have to withstand the additional force as the vault makes its downward arc. The 1/8 inch thick cable that Batman uses would have snapped like a thread under the weight, no matter what it was composed of.BocaDavie
Corrected entry: When two-face put the club on the helicopters steering wheel, he never locked it. He just put it on and jumped out, they don't lock without a key.
Corrected entry: When the security guard and Batman are in the vault, the "boiling acid" begins to fill the bottom of the vault. The vault is currently being suspended vertically with the door on top. After Batman saves the day and returns the vault to its original horizontal position, there is no acid spilling out of the door of the vault.
Corrected entry: After Edward lets Stickley fall from the window and is walking back to his desk, the cord that was attached to the "box" headpiece is missing.
Corrected entry: When Bruce goes to visit Chase for the second time, (when she gives him the Malaysian Dream Warden) at one point we hear her tea kettle whistle. She leaves to go get it. But if you listen closely, you will hear that the kettle stops whistling just barely after her footsteps stop and long before we hear the door close. And then, about 7 seconds later she comes back with a cup of tea. Who can make a cup of tea that fast?
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film, during the chopper sequence, Two-Face jams the controls with a Club. First off, what's that doing there aside from product placement? Also, Batman doesn't have anything that can remove/cut/pick it? (especially since he cut a presumably steel chain earlier).
Corrected entry: When the Riddler and Two-Face show up at Bruce's mansion to abduct Chase, all that the Riddler has with him is his cane and a bag of bat-bombs. Yet later on, when Two-Face is about to kill Bruce, the Riddler shows up and he suddenly has a box in his hand (the 5th Riddle); where did it come from? He didn't bring it in with him, and he couldn't have thrown it together while he was there.
Corrected entry: When Bruce Wayne is recounting his second flashback to Chase, you see the young Wayne walking up to the red diary and the pages are blowing. When he reaches out and turns the diary, the hand is not that of a young child but the hand of a much older person - you can tell by the wrinkles and roughness in the skin.
Corrected entry: When Edward visits Two-Face: Edward enters, introduces himself, endures Two-Face's threat, then goes to demonstrate his "box". Ed walks forward (toward the camera), and picks up two of his "boxes" from a table in Two-Face's apartment. How'd they get there? Ed hadn't started selling them yet, so there is no real explanation as to why the "boxes" would already be in the apartment.
Corrected entry: When Chase summons Batman with the Bat-Signal: she tells Batman that she pinpointed a weakness of Two-Face: his coin. How could the good doctor know about that? Unless she talked to the guard, which is probable, but not in the movie, there is no way she could know about Two-Face's coin.
Corrected entry: When Two-Face attempts to steal the rather sizable and presumably solidly built safe there is a lack of basic rigging knowledge. First of all the single chain would not be able to hold the safe by itself much less one filled with fluid. Secondly this amazing chain is connected directly to a winch inside the helicopter. Unless one uses a specially made adapter a load like that would begin to spin and swing with the motion of the rotors. Finally they pull the safe straight out of a building in the middle of downtown, the helicopter would almost have to have it's nose straight up to accomplish this and lots of room to maneuver. However the magical single prop helicopter combined with the magical chain seem to have no problem with such a difficult load.
Corrected entry: It's hard to believe that a spontaneous act of throwing acid on Dent's face by the mobster would result in a perfectly even separation down the exact middle of his face. Even with the folder protecting one half, the chances of the acid falling so perfectly seems remote.Private Joker
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Riddler invades Two Faces' Lair, he has nothing but his cane with him. But when he proceeds further into the lair, he picks up two of his "boxes." They were there before he got there.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning, when Batman is suspended over the crowd on top of the bank vault, he fires a cable to the bank building itself. The force of the hook causes it to burst through the wall, which looks rather thin and weak, yet he then proceeds to cut the wire holding the vault to the helicopter, causing the vault to swing on the wire he fired through the weak wall. The wall has suddenly become much stronger, and the vault swings back to its original location.
Corrected entry: When Batman and Robin go after Riddler, they approach in a Batwing and Batboat that appeared to be in a lower level of the batcave (this is assumed since Riddler destroyed whatever he saw in the cave) however, Two-Face and Riddler sit down to play a game of "Battleship" and have little toys of the very same vehicles. Are we supposed to believe that Riddler decided to take a picture of these vehicles in order to make little models instead of just blowing them up too? He's insane, but not stupid.
Corrected entry: Batman missed two prime opportunities to identify the Riddler. Not only could he have scanned the riddles for fingerprints (as we saw with the second riddle that Nygma doesn't wear hand protection), but shouldn't his expensive mansion hiding the Bat Cave have security cameras at the front gate that could've caught Nygma placing the riddle there?
Corrected entry: Why would a group of young children go trick-or-treating at night to Wayne Manor, which is in the middle of the woods?
Corrected entry: When Riddler meets Two-face for the first time, he has an orange buzz hair cut. Days later, he has his regular dark hair back to a longer length. How in the world did he grow his hair back so fast?
Corrected entry: Edward Nygma goes from a huge prototype model of his device to a small streamlined gadget in the space of a single cut scene. How did he shrink down his life's work in such a short time? It seems like something like that would have taken at least 6 months to do the re-engineering and build the company infrastructure to produce it. Wouldn't this have aroused the suspicion of the worlds greatest detective? I mean, what kind of crazy industrialist builds his headquarters on an island in the middle of a river?
Corrected entry: Batman enters the Riddler's throne room through a small hole in the floor, and it closes after he enters. Then the Riddler introduces Chase and Robin, and two holes like the one before appear under each tube. Nygma says Batman can't save them both. BUT, when Batman jumps to save them both, half the floor has disappeared! Why are Chase and Robin's holes connected, if the Riddler planned not to let Batman save them both? And where did the big big hole came from? It can't be due to the explosions - it's a nice neat line all the way around. The Riddler hasn't pressed the button on his cane yet either.
Corrected entry: In a gas turbine engine, as installed in the Batmobile, a full forward position on the fuel control lever(commonly called a throttle or power lever), is full power. During the chase scene before he escapes up the side of the building, he pushes the lever forward to slow down, and pulls it back to speed up. This would be extremely confusing to a pilot versed in turbine engines (the Batwing from the first Batman movie).
Corrected entry: The big question at the end of the film - Does Edward Nygma know who Batman really is? Once they see that Nygma is crazy everyone is confident that Batman's real identity is a secret. Unfortunately, they don't take into account Two-Faces large team of henchmen who stormed Wayne Manor, all of whom (presumably) now know that Bruce Wayne is Batman. Less than half of them were captured by Batman's underwater net, leaving several to spread the word of Bruce Wayne's secret identity.
Corrected entry: How did Bruce Wayne get planning permission to lay miles of metre-wide metallic pipe complete with flourescent lighting, and which presumably needs some sort of regular maintenance, beneath Gotham's busiest streets, skyscrapers, office buildings, traffic spots etc. The logistics involved do not bear thinking about and even if he used city hall connections and called in favours from old friends (which he would certainly be able to do being a billionaire businessman) he would need a bloody good reason to rip up half of Gotham's streets. He obviously didn't say it was so he could get to the batcave quickly so how on earth did he do it without anyone asking awkward questions? Surely just hiding a batsuit and 'spare' batmobile in a vault in the basement of Wayne Enterprises would be easier?
Corrected entry: More curiosity than goof - all throughout the movie, Batman keeps nagging Robin that he should not kill Two-Face - it won't bring back his parents and will make him kill again, and again... But at the end of the movie, Batman has put an ample amount of change in his pockets (utility belt?) just to fool Two-Face to grab for his coin amongst the change, and...well, you know what happened. What kind of example is this for Robin? Surely if he could reach for his change, he could have reached any number of devices from his utility belt to contain, not kill, Two-Face. Also keep in mind that Harvey Dent (who became Two-Face) was a friend of Bruce Wayne, which adds to the coldness of his death.
Corrected entry: Early on in the film, Bruce Wayne descends to the Batcave in a pod that travels at a very high speed (the display projected onto his face proves this), and the journey takes about 10 seconds, whereas later on the Cave can be reached by way of a short flight of steps (Dick Grayson falls down them). That must have been a very long route taken by the pod.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, the Riddler gives Batman two choices; he can save the woman he loves, or he can save his partner. You can clearly see that both of them have tape over their mouths. Batman saves the doctor, and peels the tape away from her face. Then the camera cuts to Robin, and he has no tape over his mouth. If Batman didn't save him yet, and Robin's hands are tied, where did the tape go?
