Corrected entry: In the scene where Joker is doing the "magic trick" with the pencil, he first stabs the pencil through the table, and we can see that he stabbed it because it is leaning to the side and the metal band is at the top. After he slams the guy's head down onto the pencil, there is no hole in the table.
Corrected entry: During the opening heist, when one of the robbers is suddenly hit by the bus that smashes through the front of the bank, watch closely. The bus comes nowhere close to actually hitting the man.
Corrected entry: A minor quibble, but it would be near suicide to ride a motorcycle wearing a six-foot cape. The drive assembly and or rear wheel/axle would eventually grab it and snap your neck.
Corrected entry: When Reese unfolds the blueprints of the 'Tumbler' and puts them on Fox's desk, the drawing of the right-hand side of the vehicle is incorrectly labelled 'Left Elevation'.
Corrected entry: When the Joker, Grumpy and Chuckles get out of their station wagon and rush into the bank, you can see that they are parked on the south side of Van Buren Street and their car is facing east, just west of the drawbridge over the river (as indicated by 301 South Wacker Drive being visible in the background). They then enter through doors at the east end of the lobby. When the Joker is starting up the bus and pulling out of the bank's west lobby doors, the entrance suddenly changes to being on the north side at the west end, as he only makes a 90 degree right turn to join in with the other buses, which are driving east on Van Buren Street. He should actually have to make a full 180 degree clockwise turn through the intersection of Canal Street and Van Buren.
Corrected entry: When the batman goes into attack mode in his tumbler on the Lower Fifth chase, he shifts in the right side of the cockpit. But when he ejects the batpod he appears to have comes out from the left side of the cockpit.
Corrected entry: Bruce says to Fox that he is playing this one close to the chest. When the joker is caught after the underground chase Dent says to Gordon when he opens the door to the truck 'You do like to play things close to the chest.' Its like the lines got mixed up with the wrong characters in the script.NiceGuyEric
Corrected entry: Batman scans a shattered bullet in a wall and finds a fingerprint on it. Firing the bullet would have certainly destroyed the fingerprint, as the bullet would be in contact with the barrel. Part of the fingerprint is seen on an area which would be in direct contact with the barrel. Airflow over the bullet would also more than likely destroy a fingerprint.
Corrected entry: During the opening bank robbery, after the robbers fire a few rounds into the air to get the attention of the customers and tellers, one robber, Chuckles, grabs one of the guards, drags him over to the desk, and pistol whips him over the back. Seconds later, right before Chuckles is killed by the shotgun-wielding bank manager, the same pistol-whipping moment is repeated as a close-up.dmcreif
Corrected entry: Toward the end of the movie, Harvey Dent is threatening to harm Commissioner Gordon's family. Gordon's wife is cowering on the floor holding her son and covering his head. Dent says "we have a winner" and chooses the boy, pulling him up and away from his mother. The next shot shows Gordon's wife crying out in protest, and she's still holding her son. The next shot shows Harvey lifting the boy off the ground.rgbfoundry
Corrected entry: During the interrogation scene, right after Gordon leaves, the lights turn on. But, a split second before batman slams the joker's face into the table, the joker squints his eyes. It's possible that Heath Ledger could've done it because he knows that his head is going to be slammed down so he makes a face to prepare for it.
Corrected entry: When the chase begins on the lower fifth the van carrying Harvey Dent is struck from behind by the garbage truck. When it hits they cut to a shot inside the van showing Dent being pushed back against the wall behind him in reaction to the crash. But Dent is sitting in a sideways-facing seat, facing the driver's side of the van. When the Van was struck from behind Dent's body should have been pushed to his left.BocaDavie
Corrected entry: In the prologue, when the Joker is acting as one of the thugs, he has combed back, tidy, brown hair. But then as soon as the bus driver crashes through the building and opens the door, the Joker's hair turns green, but still tidy and combed. And then when he goes up to the bank manager and takes off his mask, his hair then changes again, to messy and uncombed.The_Joker
Corrected entry: In the interogation room scene, Commissioner Gordon leaves through the door facing the Joker. When Batman appears behind the Joker, there is a door behind Batman. Two doors yet Batman only barricades one door to keep the police out, and Gordon only runs towards one of the doors, not even trying the other one.
Corrected entry: When Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox are looking at new Batman equipment, after Bruce picks up one of the arm plates, he presses a button which makes the blades come out, and as he does this, he is holding it towards himself, so the blades are facing him, but in the next shot, he is holding it to the side of his body, and so when he pushes another button, the blades shoot out and hit the wall, when they should have hit him in the chest.The_Joker
Corrected entry: Upon seeing a burning fire truck blocking the road, the police convoy taking Dent diverts to the sub-street, effectively trapping them and rendering the helicopter useless. The convoy could have just used the on-coming lanes above ground since they were closed to traffic. A layman can make such an error and it would be plausible. An entire team of SWAT professionals, using an airborne spotter, would not make such a blunder. The helicopter crew would instruct them to take the oncoming lanes so that they remain in the helicopter's view.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Joker tries to kill Batman after his racing is off, and someone interrupts him, he says, "Could you please, just give me a minute?" Then James Gordon appears and you can see that his glasses are broken. The next shot, his glasses are not broken anymore.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Joker interrupts the mob's meeting with Lau, Gamble asks the Joker why he shouldn't have his "boy" pull the Joker's head off. During the shot where Gamble makes the threat, the man next to him begins to stand up. The camera switches to the Joker as he responds, "How about a magic trick?" When the camera switches back to Gamble, the man is sitting again as if he had never moved.
Corrected entry: Just after the Joker blows up Gotham General Hospital he climbs into the back of a school bus. If you look at the fourth window from the left, on the bus, you can see a camera used to film a close up of the Joker. The footage from this camera can be seen in the Special Features on Disc 2.Mike
Corrected entry: In the scene when Bruce laser scans the bullet fragments he found in the wall, he said there was a thumb-print on the bullet from when the round was thumbed into the clip. However, loading a magazine your thumb would touch the casing, not the bullet itself - loading one by putting pressure on the actual bullet would be ridiculously awkward.
Corrected entry: As Two-Face is talking to Salvatore Maroni in the car, you can see they are driving past buildings and cars. After Two-Face shoots the driver, it is shown that the car flips over near a railroad.
Corrected entry: In the bank robbery scene, one of the "clowns" drills a hole into the door of the safe. Later, when he spins the lever to open the safe door (just before he is shot) the area in which he drilled is clearly visible and there is no sign of any damage.
Corrected entry: When being harassed by the Jokers henchmen, why would any sane person choose to drive his vehicle underground, making the helicopters covering the vehicle useless? The answer was that the roadblock forced the convoy underground. However, given the presence of helicopters, the helicopters would see the roadblock many blocks in advance, warn the convoy on the ground of its presence and route the convoy around the roadblock. Police helicopters already do this for getting around traffic and vectoring cars to escaping criminals. The helicopter would also never fly between buildings (look at flying regulations and see if this can ever happen without the pilot losing his/her job), and so would not be susceptible to the method employed to bring it down.
Corrected entry: It shown that the only entrance to the makeshift 'BatCave' is on a platform which lowers down from a cargo crate. The night after Batman apprehends Scarecrow, Alfred comes down and unlocks a padlock to enter the crate, goes down and finds Bruce stitching himself up, making it clear Bruce has been there all night. Therefore it's impossible that the crate is padlocked, as you'd need to be outside to do it and there's no other way to get into the underground lair.
Corrected entry: When the Joker is in Harvey Dent's room when he is being hospitalized, one of the security guards goes into the room and asks if "she" can leave, when the Joker turns around to shoot at him, for a brief moment you can see that Harvey Dent's full face is visible, without his burns and scars.
Corrected entry: In the opening bank robbery scene when the Joker places the smoke grenade in the bank owner's mouth and drives away pulling the pin out of the grenade, when the camera cuts back to man with the smoke grenade in his mouth the pin is still in the camera shot even though it should still be moving with the bus.
Corrected entry: During the SWAT chase on the underground street, when the Joker switches weapons and pulls out an RPG, the SWAT passenger says, "What is that, a bazooka?" It's actually a Soviet-designed RPG-7 - while most lay people might call any cylinder-shaped weapon a bazooka, a trained SWAT officer could easily tell the difference, and would have no reason to use the wrong name.
Corrected entry: When Harvey Dent is in the hospital, he can be seen to be wearing nothing but a hospital gown. However, after he leaves the hospital, he is once again wearing his burned suit. Even assuming that it had not been discarded and that he had time to locate it before the hospital collapsed, there is no way it could possibly have still been scabbed onto his burned flesh, as it was, since he had obviously had enough time in the hospital for his burns to stop oozing, or the hospital gown would have been soaked in ichor.
Corrected entry: The right side of Dent's face burns - but in hospital, it's the left side that's burned off.
Corrected entry: During the bank robbery, when the bus backs into the building, the bus has an Illinois license plate.
Corrected entry: Joker escapes from the bank robbery by crashing a school bus into the bank, and then drives out and simply joins what appears to be a convoy of such buses driving down the street. Even assuming Joker organized the bus convoy for his benefit, people are still seen walking down the street, unconcerned by anything. There aren't even any curious onlookers. Did they all just miss a bus crashing backwards into a bank, then pulling out? Not to mention all the gunfire inside the bank, etc, some of which took place after the bus crash, which certainly did away with any soundproofing the bank had.
Corrected entry: When Bruce is on his red and silver sport bike, he passes a silver Volkswagen that makes the distinctive sound of an air cooled, rear engine Beetle exhaust. The problem is that it is a New Beetle, which is front engine, liquid cooled, and has no distinguishable exhaust note like the air cooled Beetles.
Corrected entry: After the Joker tells the citizens of Gotham that he wants Mr. Reese dead in an hour or he will blow up a hospital, Bruce leaves to go to his Lamborghini. When Alfred says, "The Lamborghini then, sir?" the news is still on the TV in the background. The scene later cuts back to Alfred when he says, "Much more subtle." The TV is now off, but you never saw anyone shut it off in the one second between Alfred's lines, nor is Alfred holding a remote control.
Corrected entry: In the first scene when the thieves are sliding on a wire between buildings(a shot from above), a black spherical camera is seen sliding before them on the same wire.
Corrected entry: When they are trying to get Reese to safety, going into the alley and out of the building, you can see a cameraman running down the stairs after the police and Gordon.
Corrected entry: After the tunnel ambush when they get air support again they show the view from the helicopter of a SWAT member with an M16 and an EOTech sight attached. If you look closely the red dot scope is mounted backwards on the weapon.
Corrected entry: In the opening when the Joker gets picked up at the corner, he is holding his mask in his hand. The van pulls up beside him in a way that the other robbers would be able to see his face. Supposedly his face is painted prior to arriving to the bank: wouldn't the other robbers already know he is scarred and wears face paint, revealing that he is the Joker from the get-go? I also think that some people would be freaked out if the Joker was standing in the corner in broad daylight wearing face paint with scars on his face.
Corrected entry: During the underground chase scene, we see Batman inside the Batmobile accelerating. He pushes the throttle stick using his left hand, thus the Batmobile is right-hand driven. After he hits the garbage truck and spins around he is seen using his right hand to push the throttle and the Batmobile has become left-hand driven.
Corrected entry: In the bank robbery scene, from when the Joker says, "No, no I'm supposed to kill the bus driver," and up until the robber holding a gun to the Joker gets hit by the bus, you can see in the close-up shots of the Joker's face that his eyes have no black paint around them, just normal skin. You have to look closely but it is there.
Corrected entry: After Dent shoots Maroni's driver, you can see a geyser under the car that helps it flip.
Corrected entry: When Batman cuts out the chunk of wall to retrieve the bullet, it is a square shape with the bullet hole slightly off-center. Then, when he is shooting various sample bricks in his lab, the one he chooses is rectangular with the bullet hole dead-center. When he actually performs the scan to find the fingerprint, he is using the rectangular sample brick, not the square one he cut out of the wall. This means he is somehow able to yield a criminal's fingerprint off a bullet that he shot in his own lab.
Corrected entry: When Harvey is set on fire, he put his hand directly into the fire for about 3 seconds, but both his hand and sleeve are unaffected (no burns - even minor ones).
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the bank heist scene, the Joker is standing on a street corner with a clown mask in his hand. As the van pulls up he puts the mask over his face. Later, he takes the mask off and is shown wearing makeup. This means that while standing on the street corner without the mask on, his makeup would have been visible to the public.
Corrected entry: When Lucius Fox arrives in Hong Kong, he's greeted by an assistant to Lau at the helipad. He's played by actor/singer Edison Chen. He's also the guy who tells Lucius to leave his phone in the lobby's reception. Edison Chen was involved in a sexy pictures scandal in Hong Kong early 2008, when photos of him having sex with Hong Kong singers and actresses (some of them since married) that were stored in his computer were leaked online. His few seconds onscreen are probably the last we'll see of him as his showbiz career is now kaput.
Corrected entry: When The Joker arrives at Dent's fundraiser, Rachel and Harvey are away from the party in one of the other rooms. Bruce comes and drags Harvey away, saying, "They're coming for him". So why does Rachel end up amongst all the party guests for The Joker to threaten? Surely she would have stayed hidden and out of the way. And why didn't Bruce simply hide Rachel with Dent to ensure her safety, or at least hide her somewhere, like wherever he got the BatSuit from, for example? These are some baffling character decisions that don't make sense at all.
Corrected entry: Two-Face's face should drool (also known as ptyalism or sialorrhea) saliva from his mouth openings; it just looks too waxy.
Corrected entry: When the Joker attacks the police convoy with Harvey Dent, why is it that none of the policemen shoot back at him, or at least tries to defend himself with a gun? There were many policemen out there (some were killed, of course), policemen usually carry guns, and there was enough time between the Joker's attacks to take out a gun and shoot at him. I think I would give guns for people who were transferring one of Gotham's most wanted criminals, and who are expecting to be attacked by the most brutal criminal in town.
Corrected entry: Toward the end of the bank heist scene, when the pin is pulled from the grenade that is in the bank manager's mouth, you can see a tube that releases the smoke from the grenade, running from his mouth to the inside of his collar.
Corrected entry: In the shot where we first see Gordon again after he 'dies', a part of his glasses frame is missing (on the left), but in the next shot, when we see him with Dent his glasses are perfect.
Corrected entry: If Harvey's eyelid was in fact burned off in the fire, leaving his eye intact, it would eventually fail to function and even be damaged beyond repair due to a lack of hydration which occurs through the process of blinking.
Corrected entry: One side of Harvey's face is severely burnt, also leaving his eye without an eyelid, if this was the case that the fire got so close to his eye to take the skin off then his actual eye should have been equally damaged.
Corrected entry: The events of this film take place immediately after the events of 'Batman Begins'. In the previous film, Lucius Fox introduces and describes the 'Tumbler' to Bruce Wayne as a military prototype 'bridging vehicle', designed to jump across ravines and chasms to drag lines which would then be used to pull bridges across. The vehicle is then used in that film is ways that are consistent with the expected features of such a vehicle. However, in this film the Tumbler (now officially the 'Batmobile') suddenly acquires the ability to shed its outer skin, revealing the motorcycle-like vehicle from within. Not only does this serve no conceivable purpose for an intended 'bridging vehicle', but that ability would preclude the interior passenger space shown quite thoroughly in the previous film. Also, there has not been any time between the two films' timelines in which to make the modifications necessary for such a feature, even if they only recently decided to add it.
Corrected entry: On the prisoner's ferry, supposedly just before midnight, the prisoner stands up to take the detonator from the guard. As he stands up, the clock shows it's roughly 11:30/11:35. Then his body covers the clock and he moves forward. When you see the clock again, it shows it's just before midnight.
Corrected entry: During the big finale in the unfinished skyscraper, Batman discovers that the clowns are really the hostages. Why doesn't he contact Gordon and let him know right away? Batman was just in contact with Gordon on his way there (his batsuit is obviously equipped with a headset). Gordon could easily have alerted the SWAT team, and Batman would not have had to go through the trouble of methodically bringing down all the SWAT team members so they didn't fire on the hostages.
Corrected entry: When Bruce Wayne is back in his penthouse after having saved Dent, but Rachel is dead, he is sitting in a chair in the Batman costume. The cowl and some other suit parts are on the floor behind him as if he shed them just before sitting in the chair. When you see his face, he has no eyeblack on. There seems to be no other way he gets the eye mask openings to be black - no fabric, no lenses - looking carefully it must be makeup of some kind.
Corrected entry: Batman drops Maroni off of a fire escape which breaks his legs. A few scenes later outside of Dent's hospital room, he confronts Commissioner Gordon and he is walking just fine as though nothing happened. A few scenes later at the dock, Maroni is at least walking with a cane, but after a fall like that he would probably need a wheelchair.
Corrected entry: During the scene in which Maroni's men meet with the Scarecrow, you see the black Suburban pull up. As it comes to a stop, you can see finger smudges on the driver's door that were a result of earlier takes. When he gets out, he puts his hand in exactly the same spot.
Corrected entry: In the opening scene as Joker's cronies are using a zip line to cross roof tops, a suspended camera is momentarily caught on scene while following the second person using the zip line. The following wide angle frame of the guys zip lining is obviously the camera that was caught in the frame just moments before.
Corrected entry: When Gotham's citizens were being evacuated, there was an aerial shot that showed a gridlocked street (shot at Wacker and Wabash in Chicago) with many cars and individuals. In the next scene, Commissioner Gordon and the Mayor are speaking in his office. The view out his window are on the same streets (Wacker and Wabash) but with normal traffic flow.
Corrected entry: When Bruce is on the balcony at Dent's party he dumps his glass out over the ledge. However, when Rachel walks out and it shows Bruce's back, you can see there is a ledge that the champagne would have splattered on that is dry.
Corrected entry: When Bruce first walks off onto his balcony during the party, he completely empties his glass over the edge. When Rachel comes out to speak with him, his glass still has a small amount of champagne left in it.
Corrected entry: After Gotham General is blown up; while Gordon is on the phone, he walks by what seems to be a boom crane on wheels behind him. Why would video production equipment be in front of a hospital? This thing surely didn't roll off a news van.
Corrected entry: When describing ways to fly into Asia, "South Korean smugglers operating out of Pyongyang" was a possibility. However, Pyongyang is the capital of North Korea, not South.
Corrected entry: When Batman is on the Batpod, he rides up to the shopping mall and starts shooting guns at the glass door. Inside, you can see the shopping mall beyond the glass doors, and next shot, the Batpod is driving through a concrete underpass. Next shot, the Batpod smashes through the glass doors of the shopping mall. The shot of the concrete underpass should not be there.
Corrected entry: The bus slams into the wall backwards during the robbery. (1) It would never have had enough speed to break the wall while going in reverse due to the other buildings across the busy street. (2) They easily open the rear door that would have been damaged and or stuck shut due to the impact.
Corrected entry: Once inside Lau's building, Lau's bodyguards fire several shots at Batman while he is fighting. The bullets shatter the glass partitions inside the office but the exterior windows of the building, directly in the line of fire and only a few feet further than the partitions, are all entirely undamaged.BocaDavie
Corrected entry: In the "Clowns are hostages" scene, in which Batman and Fox are using the cell phone sonar, there are no cell phones in the building. It's a construction site and the only people in the building are the Joker, the clowns, and the doctors. Even if each of them had a cell phone, Batman and Fox both see all of the empty floors of the building perfectly.
Corrected entry: In the scene with the exploding hospital, the Joker has rigged what seems like every room in at least the wing shown on our right (since the explosive charges set off one at a time). It would require an absurd number of man-hours setting up so many explosive charges without being discovered, but the Joker has only been in the business of terrorism for a very short while.
Corrected entry: When Two-Face has hold of Gordon's kid and is flipping the coin to "decide" who gets to live, he flips and catches it in his left hand. Between flips, there's a close-up of the kid's face, and Two-Face is stroking the kid's hair - with his left hand. No coin in sight.
Corrected entry: During the 'know your limits' speech Bruce takes his shirt off and we can see that he is covered in cuts and bruises, yet when he's on the boat a day or so later he has no marks on him what so ever.
Corrected entry: When Gordon smashes the bat-signal at the end of the movie, it is switched on. Aside from being a highly dangerous thing to do, there is no reason for the signal to be switched on in the first place. The whole point of Gordon smashing the signal is that the cops don't trust Batman, so they wouldn't be signalling for him. And it's not like Batman would answer it, since he already knows the cops are after him. Plus Gordon would probably get electrocuted since he used a metal axe.
Corrected entry: During the scene where the SWAT caravan is taking Harvey Dent to central lockup, the helicopter above changes positions in regards to the truck as they approach. It appears to fly overhead, then hit the wires, crash, and fall in front of them when it should have already been behind them.
Corrected entry: Alfred tells the story of when he was in the Army during the British occupation of Burma. The British left Burma in 1948. Alfred would have to be at least 80 years old for this to be a possibility.
Corrected entry: When Harvey Dent falls into the gasoline, supposedly covering only one side of his face, he is sputtering and spitting and splashing gasoline onto his lips and the "clean" side of his face, yet in the hospital there are no signs of minor burns on the "clean" side of his face at all.
Corrected entry: At the fundraiser for Harvey Dent, as the Joker is intimidating Rachel, he says "You've got a little fight in you. I like that," then we hear Batman say "then you're gonna love me" and he hits the Joker. There's no way he could have got so close to the Joker without being noticed earlier, considering it's a brightly-lit room full of party guests and several of the Joker's henchmen.
Corrected entry: Cillian Murphy appears in the beginning of "The Dark Knight" selling his drugs, but does not seem to be psycho, this doesn't make sense as he was poisoned in "Batman Begins" and his dosage seemed to be more than enough to make him crazy (as evidenced by Rachel's dosage earlier in that scene). He is normal and calm during the deal and isn't crazy or acting out.
Corrected entry: After the hospital explosion, Commissioner Gordon calls in the National Guard. Only the governor can do that.
Corrected entry: When the Joker comes out of the hospital as it is exploding, he gets on a school bus via the back door. If you look closely you can see a stagehand/technician close the door, and is visible sitting up and giving a 'thumbs up' to the driver to inform him that he is able to drive off.
Corrected entry: In one scene, Two Face's coin says it is from the year 1929, and in a later scene it says 1922.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Batman is on top of the building in China across from Lau's office he shoots approximately 3 timed explosives that stick to the exterior windows of Lau's office. When doing this he is at the top of a very distinctive building with "ribs" pointing up and over the top of the building itself. When Batman jumps off this building he glides across, away and down to Lau's office BUT as he gets closer to the building, just before crashing into Lau's office, it is the same one as he was standing on in the scene before.
Corrected entry: When 'Two Face' Dent is holding Gordon and family hostage, only the undamaged side of his face is visible, while the deformed portion is in shadow. However, the edge of the damaged side is partially visible, and it is clear that there are some undamaged areas that were damaged before.
Corrected entry: Two-Face has only one eyelid. After 30 seconds or so, this would begin to cause harm, and very soon, blindness and deformation of the eyeball. It would have been more realistic for him to have a dead eyeball on the left side.
Corrected entry: When Batman fires his spikes into Joker's face to get the upper hand I found it really odd that Joker did not have the spikes in his face, or at least some obvious injuries, as Batman saved Joker from falling to reel him up. This is because earlier in the film, the spikes are able to stick to walls, but they can't stick to human flesh now?
Corrected entry: When the Joker is riding away from the police station after he 'detonates' one of his henchmen, he is seen hanging out of the back of a squad car. For obvious reasons (possible escape) the back windows of a squad car are inoperable and the back doors can only be opened from the outside.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Commissioner Gordon says that Two Face killed "5 people, 2 cops." Two Face only killed 1 cop; he didn't kill Ramirez. He also killed Maroni's driver (and maybe Maroni indirectly). That equals 3 people, 1 cop.
Corrected entry: In the scene near the end where Two-Face is holding the coin up to show the police officer and his family, the coin switches from the clean side to the burned side when the camera switches back onto Two-Face.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Batman is interrogating the Joker, when the Joker is explaining to Batman how they are similar, there is a shot in which the Joker's vest it folded up, revealing a suspender strap. The shot changes to Batman, and when the camera returns to the Joker no strap is visible.
Corrected entry: The film contains several Bond movie references: the "skyhook" technology that Batman uses to extricate Lau is similar to that used by Felix Leiter at the end of "Thunderball", and Joker's hidden blade in the shoe is very reminiscint of Rosa Klebb's weapon of choice in "From Russia With Love".
Corrected entry: As Harvey Dent is being transported in the SWAT van, the Joker shoots at the van many times with various guns. Each time they show the interior of the van, there are jagged bullet holes tearing through the sheet metal from the Joker's bullets, yet from the outside they show that there are no bullet holes.in fact, no visible damage at all.To top this off, as the bullets rip holes in the side of the van, the cop inside inexplicably says to Dent: "Don't worry, they'll need something a lot bigger than that to get through to us", right before the Joker uses his 'bazooka'(actually an RPG launcher).
Corrected entry: This one bothered me throughout the trailer and in the film. Batman is driving through the mall-looking area on the bat-pod and shoots out the glass to the doors, the shot cuts to him riding up a ramp and then back to Batman now crashing through the glass he had just shot. The shots seems out of place.
Corrected entry: When Batman and the Joker have their final confrontation towards the end of the movie, Batman throws the Joker off the building and he falls a significant distance before Batman saves him with his "zipline" device and hauls him back up. But we see Batman pulling up his zipline with his hands only a few times before the Joker is pulled the entire distance back up. Those few tugs of the zipline would have pulled the Joker up perhaps several feet, not the long distance he originally fell.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Gordon and his officers rescue the consultant (Reese) who's about to reveal Batman's identity, they rescue Engel (Anthony Michael Hall) from the TV studio also. He is seen with Gordon and Reese in the police SUV when Bruce Wayne saves the day with his Lamborghini. However, Engel all of a sudden appears as one of the hostages being hustled into the school bus at Gotham Hospital, and is shown in the Joker's hostage video.
Corrected entry: Maroni was dropped from however many stories up, and an audible "crack!" is heard. However, we see him later walking without crutches. He does have a cane, but doesn't even use it while walking around to get into his car.
Corrected entry: In the scene of the assassination attempt the Joker, without his makeup, is disguised as one of the police officers who will give the gun salute. Even if we can suspend our disbelief that nobody recognized him specifically as being the Joker (even though he does have the same facial scar), how on earth could he have gotten himself chosen as one of the cops who would give the salute and therefore hold a loaded gun literally next to a high-ranking city official? I'd think that the police force would double-check and then triple-check who got selected to hold a gun in that type of situation. How did he get past that and fool everyone?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Alfred is burning documents in the 'batcave' furnace, it starts with furnace open where you can see him shoveling papers into a burning pile. The next shot shows him closing the door to the furnace, except there is no visible flame in the window. In the next shots the flames are visible again through the window.
Corrected entry: In the scene with the 2 ferries, after the black guy throws the detonator out of the window, you can see Dr. Jonathan Crane(the scarecrow) standing in what appears to be a guards uniform, looking panicked.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Joker sets fire to his half of the money with Lau sitting on top, where did the money come from? Lau took the mobs' money out of Dent's jurisdiction. Joker had time to kidnap Lau, discover the location of the money, divide it in half and stack it to stage Lau's demise?
Corrected entry: In the shot of the construction building where the Joker is watching the boats in the harbor, Bruce uses the cellular waves as a sonar and you can see the S.W.A.T. designs on the back of the officers' vests. This is impossible due to the fact that the S.W.A.T. lettering is flat and would not show up as another color. Instead, almost all surfaces would show up as one color.
Corrected entry: *Spoiler alert* During the car chase scene while transporting Dent the armored truck says GPD (Gotham Police Department) but later Gordon is told he is the new commissioner and his turtleneck says GCPD (Gotham City Police Department).
Corrected entry: In the scene of the assassination attempt the Joker, without his makeup, is disguised as a police officer. And yet not one single person, not even one of the legit police officers, ever notices that something is wrong? Here is this guy with the same facial scar as the Joker right in front of them and nobody recognizes him?
