Corrected entry: 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.

Corrected entry: 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.
Corrected entry: During the board meeting at Wayne Enterprises, before Bruce shows up, as Earle says, "I think after twenty years we can allow ourselves to ", he's walking towards his chair. As the shot ends, he's about two meters away from the chair, but in the next shot where he continues " stop thinking about what Thomas Wayne would have done", he's already reached the chair and sits down
Corrected entry: Scene - the monorail train crash; Batman escapes the monorail by throwing an explosive to the rear of the train; the explosion separates the first car from the rest of the train. As the locomotive pulls away from the rest of the cars Batman flies out the back. Seconds later when the train goes off the edge the locomotive is reconnected to the rest of the cars and there is no damage from the explosion. A previous corrector proposed that the trailing cars of the monorail still had forward momentum. True, but they were decelerating and could not possibly have caught up; Batman jammed the accelerator of the locomotive. The trailing cars could not have "caught up" while the locomotive was still accelerating and certainly could not have re-attached themselves after the explosion.
Corrected entry: When Bruce first meets Ducard, Ducard's left eye is blue and his right eye is brown. In other close up shots of Ducard, his eye colors have switched.
Corrected entry: In their final scene together, Batman says to Ra's, "I won't kill you, but I don't have to save you." Actually, by Batman's own moral code, he does - letting someone (even a villain) die by his own negligence when he could've otherwise saved him is tantamount to premeditated murder. This philosophy is further reinforced when Batman chooses to save the Joker (who is arguably even more dangerous than Ra's) from falling to his death near the end of "The Dark Knight." This also defies Batman's moral code as established in the comics, where he routinely saves his arch enemies from certain death (even though simply letting them die would probably serve the greater good). The aforementioned Jean-Paul Valley situation from the comics is beside the point.
Corrected entry: Dr. Crane visits Falcone in prison and administers the drug to drive him insane. He then leaves and tells a prison official that Falcone must be moved to Arkham for further evaluation. Later that night, Batman fights Scarecrow/Dr. Crane and is poisoned; after Alfred rescues him he wakes up in Wayne Manor after "two days." Rachel comes to visit him, and as they are talking she receives a phone call. She becomes agitated and states that she has to leave, as Dr. Crane "had Falcone moved [to Arkham] on suicide watch." Why the urgency, if the move took place at least two days earlier?
Corrected entry: The officer who has been promoted to Liuetenant at the end of the film was wearing silver bars on his uniform at the beginning of the movie, signifying the position of Liuetenant.
Corrected entry: When a company goes public, the directors always ensure that only 49% of the shares are actually available to the public, so that the directors - having the other 51% - will always retain control of the firm. Given this, if Bruce Wayne sold his original stake in Wayne Enterprises, it would have been impossible for him to buy back enough shares on the public market to give him control of the company, no matter how much he had to spend - the required number of shares just wouldn't have been available.Moose
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie Batman is seen flying out of the train that separated in two. If you watch closely at the wide shot of him exiting the train, you can see that the part he flew out of is only the first section of the train with no other sections attached, but later when the train is falling off the rails into Wayne Tower it all of a sudden has three connecting sections.
Corrected entry: When Rachel and Bruce are talking about how Bruce wanted to kill the guy who killed his father, Rachel slaps his face several times. His hair goes from falling to the front of his face to back just as perfectly as it was before repeatedly without it ever becoming messed up at all.
Corrected entry: When the police arrive to arrest the men that batman subdued, they see the bat signal created from a man chained to a spotlight. Those spotlights generate a extreme amount of heat and for a man to be on the lens surface like that would be severely burned.
Corrected entry: If the machine used by Henri Ducard and his crew evaporates all water, any humans around the machine should have been vaporized too. Since the human body is 90% water, all of that should have been vaporized.
Corrected entry: When Bruce opens the corridor to the Bat Cave he hits three notes on the piano to open the door. When Alfred saves Bruce from the fire he takes him to the Bat Cave. Alfred only hits two notes on the piano to open the door, not the three notes that were needed before.

Corrected entry: When Bruce is hanging onto the edge of the icy cliff and holding onto Henri Ducard, you can see that they are above gravel not hanging miles up. When you see a close up of Bruce's face you can see the shadow of the cliff on the gravel.
Corrected entry: As Batman and Rachel are escaping from the Gotham Police Cars, Batman activates the 'weapons' function on the Tumbler(Batmobile). This function manoeuvres the driver from a normal seated position to a full laying-down position, face down, facing forward, ostensibly for accurate 'targeting' ability with the weapons. However, from an upright seated position, there is no way to 'fold' yourself over like that without breaking your pelvic bone and crushing your legs. The seating position is very close to the ground, so there is no room for the legs to swing underneath the vehicle either.
Corrected entry: When the train crashes through the ground and then ploughs through the underground car park, it strikes a car, which makes a skidding sound, exactly the same sound as the Batmobile does with its wheels roughly five times larger. A bit unlikely.
Corrected entry: When Bruce imitates contact with Gordon in his office, he holds a device to the back of Gordon's head, while wearing the gloves used for passing an electric current through Batman's cape to make rigid. Problem is Bruce is only introduced to the gloves for the first time in the next scene by Lucius Fox.
Corrected entry: When Bruce enters his party at Wayne Manor, you can hear lots of voices singing "Happy Birthday", but only two people in the following shots are actually singing it.
Corrected entry: The plot hinges on the use of a huge microwave generator that is powerful enough to vapourise water within Gotham City's water mains. A microwave that powerful would also vapourise the water within peoples cells and effectively cook those close by. However, Ducard and two henchmen ride the train carrying the generator without being harmed, and people only metres away from the boiling pipes are not cooked either.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Batman calls the bats from the batcaves for help you see them rush through a closed glass window. In fact bats rather "hear" their surrounding by ultrasonics than seeing it, which would make it impossible for bats to distinguish between glass they could fly through and a wall they would just bounce off.
Corrected entry: After the funeral, when the young Rachel looks up at young Bruce from outside the mansion, you can see a modern-day Illinois license plate. These plates were not available at the time.
Corrected entry: After Batman was poisoned with Dr. Crane's hallucinogen, he was given an antidote which made him immune from the effects of later exposures. Batman also made sure that Rachel and Gordon received the antidote, and they became immune as well. So why didn't Dr. Crane make sure that he was immune from the effects of his own drug? In fact, when he was exposing other people to the vapors he was not affected by it at all, until Batman exposed him to it.
Corrected entry: Despite being able to evaporate Gotham City's water supply the microwave device does not appear to have any sort of large power source.
Corrected entry: In the last scene where Rachel approaches Bruce when he is covering the well, he has a black spot below his right eye. A few seconds later he is clean.
Corrected entry: In the scene near the end where the characters are sifting through the manor rubble, there isn't a Gotham city skyscraper in sight, however when batman is riding through the city in the bat mobile earlier on in the movie, when the police are chasing him, he races off the motorway and in a matter of seconds is in the Batcave. Wouldn't we be able to see Gotham city in the background instead of green fields?
Corrected entry: The scene in the basement that shows chemicals being dumped into the city's water system, has a large pipe cracked open with the worker dumping the chemicals into it. Since city water systems are pressurized, the water should have been gushing out and flooding the place.
Corrected entry: When Rachel's boss is murdered, the sound effects used for his killers' weapons are that of a silenced gun. But the handguns that they are using are not equipped with silencers.
