Batman Begins

Audio problem: After Bruce and Rachel kiss, Rachel says, "But maybe he's still out there somewhere". Her head is seen from behind, but you can see from the motion of her jaw that her mouth is moving before the words are heard. (02:02:35)


Audio problem: During Bruce's birthday party, the guests sing "Happy Birthday", but the song does not match their lips.


Audio problem: When Rachel seeks out Bruce at the end of the movie, Bruce says, "I was a coward with a gun, and justice is about more than revenge, so thank you." In the first shot, his head is seen from behind, and neither his mouth nor his jaw is moving. (02:01:30)


Audio problem: When Batman brings Rachel to the batcave, he sedates her. The sound effects of his syringe device are off. Rachel begins to pass out the moment the needle is stuck in her and the fizzing sound of the actual medicine being injected is a couple of seconds too late.

Audio problem: When Bruce is thrown into the cell, the metal door makes a loud, distinct noise as it's opened and closed. When Ducard is about to leave, he knocks on the door to signal the guards. In the following shot of Bruce, nothing is heard, but when the camera cuts back to Ducard, the door is fully open. (00:03:30 - 00:05:30)


Revealing mistake: Near the end of the scene, when Bruce and Fox are in the tumbler Fox says "We never could get the damn bridge to work, but this baby works just fine" then Bruce turns the wheel to the left but the tumbler turns right. (00:57:45)

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.

More trivia for Batman Begins

Question: Shouldn't Bruce be as insane as Falcone? Unless the dosages delivered to Batman and Falcone, respectively, were different. Also, why didn't Rachel yell and scream and go crazy like Falcone did when he was hit?

Answer: Bruce is just as infected as Falcone, however he is rescued by Alfred shortly after he is poisoned and given an antidote by Lucius shortly after that. He is then bedridden for many hours. If he had not been saved as quickly as he was, he no doubt would have been a blubbering mass just like Falcone. The reason Rachel and even Bruce don't react the same as Falcone the moment they are poisoned comes down to how each individual person reacts to fear: Bruce tries to fight, Rachel faints, Falcone screams in horror.


Answer: Also he had taken it before, earlier in the mountains.
