New today Continuity mistake: During the big chase, at one point Batman, riding the Bat Pod, shoots out a glass doorway and proceeds to drive through an underground area loaded with storefronts. However, if you look, the editing makes no sense. He rounds a corner and shoots out the glass doors and is about 5 feet away from crashing through, then it cuts and he's in a completely different area with completely different lighting going up a ramp, then the camera cuts again and he bursts through the doors seen two cuts prior. The rest of the scene is edited normally, so it makes no sense why this moment has the Bat Pod teleporting to a completely different location for one short shot. A prior correction stated he was going up a wheelchair ramp, but this is complete hogwash - the ramp he's going up is in a different location nowhere near the doorway, and he's at least 50 feet from any structures, whereas moments prior he was only about 5 feet from the doorway.
Continuity mistake: During the bank scene, the Joker shoots the bus driver and he falls dead in front of the bus. As the Joker approaches the Bank manager to put the gas can in his mouth, you can still see the body. But after he removes his mask and walks toward the bus, the driver's body is gone.
Continuity mistake: The Joker fires a rocket-propelled grenade at the Tumbler, sending it crashing end over end. In the final tumble, as it loses the last of its momentum, it's rolling to rest on its roof. The camera angle then changes and it's suddenly regained momentum, rolling again so it lands on its wheels.
Continuity mistake: Joker and Two-face are in the hospital; Harvey is about to flip the coin to decide if the Joker lives or dies. The camera angle switches back and forth between the Joker and Harvey. From one angle Harvey is wearing the monitor clamp on his middle finger with the grey wire, from the other angle it is gone. It disappears and re-appears every time the camera angle changes.
Continuity mistake: During the opening bank robbery scene, the Joker reaches down to toss a duffel bag of money to the school bus driver. He is holding his pistol in his left hand and reaches for the bag with his right. But in the very next shot, his pistol is in his right hand and the bag is in his left.
Continuity mistake: When Eric Roberts gets in the car with Two-Face, the car seems to go from being parked to going full-speed in a split-second. As he's getting in the car, Roberts is talking to his driver, and just as he sits down, he sees Two-Face, and the background appears to be moving by very quickly behind him. The car wouldn't have had time to even pull away from the curb yet.
Continuity mistake: After the Batmobile is hit by an RPG, Batman steers the car through the concrete barrier out of the traffic lane. As the car crashes through another wall, it lifts from the rear and the driver side rear tire is seen flying off the car. For the rest of the scene, all the tires are still attached.
Continuity mistake: When Bruce gets on his motor bike on the way to the apartment, overlooking the governor's speech, his hair is all greased back. But when he gets off the bike and takes his helmet off, his hair is fuller and not as greasy. When they cut to him inside the apartment, his hair is once again greased back like it was before he got on the bike.
Continuity mistake: During the bank robbery, when Joker takes off his mask, before the camera changes angles, he uses his right hand to remove the mask and his left hand is holding up the manager's head. When it cuts to a front view, he is using his left hand to remove the mask, but when it cuts back to the first angle Joker's left hand is supporting the manager's head again.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joker is visiting Harvey in the hospital, there is a shot of Harvey's face just before Joker takes his hand, and there is a tear on Harvey's cheek. However, in the next shot of Harvey's face, the tear is gone, and there is no trail where the tear would have fallen, and Harvey's hands don't go to his face.
Continuity mistake: In one of the first scenes with Det. Ramirez, you see her holding a cup of coffee. She switches between holding the cup with two hands, then one hand and finally two hands again. The cuts in the scene are immediate and linear, so she could not have changed how she holds the cup in between cuts.
Continuity mistake: In the car chase, as they exit onto lower 5th, the convoy has, in order, a police cruiser, 2 swat vans, then 2 cruisers. When the garbage truck pulls up next to the convoy, he takes out the second to last cruiser first (there is a car visible behind). It then spins out another cruiser in front of it before reaching the van with Dent in it, but there should have been no other cruiser between that one and the van.
Continuity mistake: Just after Gordon gets a call from Batman saying, "Gordon, I have the Joker's location, Pruitt building" it cuts to an aerial shot of the building. On the building there is a construction banner with the logo DAVIS, with a blue anchor shape logo. Then later on, when Gordon has the binoculars and says, "Why would they choose a spot with such good weakness" there is another aerial shot where the building banner now read BOVIS, with a blue arch logo.

Continuity mistake: When Batman is removing the part of the wall with the bullet in it, we see the bullet hole is off-center, to the left side of the block that Batman carves out. In the next scene where we see the mounted gun shooting specialized bullets into blocks, Bruce compares the block he removed from the apartment, which is in a plastic bag, to the holes left in the sample blocks. The hole in the block from the apartment is now in the center of the block, not on the left side as it was when he removed it.
Continuity mistake: When the Joker first opens fire on the prison van, you can see that his pistol locks open as if it were empty. However, if you look closely, you can see the empty shell is stuck between the slide and the chamber. In the next shot, he keeps on firing like nothing ever happened.
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Alfred tends to Bruce's bite wounds, the angle cuts several times between Alfred and Bruce. When the camera is on Alfred, Bruce is mostly looking down towards the wound. When the camera is on Bruce, he looks straight at the camera.
Continuity mistake: As Batman appears in the bank vault, Ramirez looks to Gordon. The scene cuts to Gordon, who acknowledges her to leave the vault. When the scene cuts back again she is already a few meters behind Batman. There's not enough time for her to cover the distance.
Continuity mistake: In the interrogation scene just before Batman slams the Joker's head into the table, it can be observed that the Joker's nails are somewhat long. However, as the scene escalates to where the Joker's back is against the wall and he's clutching Batman's forearms, the Joker's nails are short.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Batman is interrogating the Joker at the police station, Jokers make-up smears and is rubbed off when he rubs his forehead (after Batman slammed it into the table). Batman later in the same scene strikes the Joker in the face. He should have some make-up on his gloves left, yet does not.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the mob wearing Joker masks are attempting to zip-line from one building to another, one guy shoots a harpoon at the other building. After being shot, the harpoon never makes it beyond a couple of meters, before it begins to fall down due to gravity. And it doesn't even seem to have enough energy to make it to its target. But in the following scene, the zip-line is shown to be well anchored to the other building.
Continuity mistake: When Reese is in the police SUV and Gordon is talking to the cop who's wife is in a hospital, the cop is sitting in the front passenger seat holding his gun away from his body, towards the driver's seat (the barrel goes up and to the right). When the shot changes to Gordon, you see a gun barrel in the foreground going up and to the left as if it was coming from the driver's seat.
Continuity mistake: When Lucius Fox is showing Bruce Wayne the new Batman gear, Bruce picks up an arm plate, activates it, six blades flip up and shoot out. We can see as it happens that deep 'holes' in the arm plate show where the blades had been. A second later, when he returns the arm plate to the drawer, the bat-shaped blades are back inside the arm plate, as it is nearly smooth again just like the second arm plate next to it. Two additional arm plates are shown futher to our right with their blades standing up.
Continuity mistake: On lower 5th, the SWAT driver yells lock and load. When he does he has 2 cable ties in loops on his left hand side of his jacket that are exactly equal in size, both the loop and the "tail." We see outside the van for a few seconds. When the camera returns to the driver, the loops are now different sizes as evident by one having a longer "tail".
