Revealing mistake: When Catwoman and Batman are fighting Bane's henchmen on the rooftop, pay close attention to the guys in the background right before Batman knocks Catwoman's gun away: you can see that the henchman well out of Batman's reach on the far left falls over like he's been hit by a punch, but he couldn't be. Also, no gunshots are heard at that point, so he couldn't have been shot either.
Factual error: When the bridges are blown up, some of the bridges are suspension bridges, but the bridge only fails at the point of the explosion. The main horizontal supports are severed, but large portions of the bridge remain magically aloft. The nature of suspension bridges means the remaining vertical cables and road deck would fail as well, resulting in the loss of the bridge between the two main pillar supports.
Other mistake: During the fight later in the movie, when Batman stops Bane's henchmen from executing Blake, during a shot of Catwoman crouching, one of the henchmen behind her on the left of the screen just falls backwards, seemingly without being harmed in any way. If you look at the fight closely, it seems that it could have been intended for him to be the victim of an accidental gunshot to the leg that ended up not being followed through in post production.
Continuity mistake: When Selina has Daggett pressed up against a wall and we've seen her heels, Stryver points a gun at her and he says "Nice outfit, those heels make it tough to walk?" Shortly afterwards she and Bruce fighting Bane's goons on the roof, and she is now wearing flats.

Audio problem: Inside the well, when Bruce is about to take the final leap, the inmates are heard shouting "Rise!" in one single perfect cry, yet when the angle focuses on them no-one's mouth is in sync with the sound. Furthermore, no one's mouth is in sync with the inmate next to him.
Continuity mistake: During the intro sequence, the camera points upward inside the bottom plane, allowing the viewer to see outside the hole, where nothing apparently exists except blue sky. Cut to an outside shot, and the suggested angle of the plane suggests we should be able to see the top plane outside the hole. Yet whenever we are inside, the top plane and the wires holding the planes together all mysteriously disappear.
Continuity mistake: The scene where Bane overwhelms the guards at the stock exchange and the surveillance tape of that scene that Alfred shows Bruce later are not from from the same take/choreography: In the surveillance tape when Bane shoots the guard with the other guard's pistol still in his hand, in the exact moment the shot goes off (recognizable by Bane's upwards bouncing arm), the guard flails his left arm high and throws his head back as if reacting choreographically to a punch (that punch comes half a second later though). In the original the guard does not flail with his left arm and does not throw his head back the moment the shot goes off. He only does it when Bane actually hits him with his own pistol. Furthermore, you can see from the surveillance tape that Bane's pistol-punch does not connect with the guard's face.

Other mistake: After Batman returns to his cave, Alfred shows him the recording of the surveillance camera. From the angle of the surveillance camera, you can see that Bane shoots an armed guard that stands inside the metal detector. Yet in the original scene at the stock exchange there is no audible alarm from the metal detector that should've been triggered by the armed guard. In both recordings you can see that the green light ("ready" & "no alarm") is on all the time.

Factual error: After Bane takes over Gotham, the Army goes to town to stop him. When the convoy is stopped on the bridge, one of the vehicles shown is an M109 Paladin self propelled howitzer, an artillery cannon. There is no reason the army should bring medium-heavy field artillery to a hostage situation, seeing as everything it can do would involve more collateral damage than could be outweighed by the benefits. Even disregarding this, there's no reason at all to bring it into Gotham across the bridge: An M109 has an effective range of more than 30 kilometres, and a battery of guns would easily have been able to cover all of Gotham city from the other side of the river. Plus a howitzer, or any artillery for that matter, parked on a suspension bridge is pretty much useless as their field of fire would be severely limited.
Continuity mistake: The plane in the beginning has at least 4 rows of seats in the left and 5 rows in the right. In the final shot where Bane and the doctor "slip" out of the plane, the left has only 3 rows and the right one also seems to have no more than 3. Additionally, the last of both rows are level, although in the rest of the scene they are not. Furthermore, Bane and the doctor "start" amidst the seats, although in the last shot they start behind the last row of seats. And the aisle is pretty narrow in the last shot with not enough space to fit an additional seat, compared to the rest of the scene where the gap is wide enough to fit at least two seats.

Revealing mistake: When Bane first breaks into the stock exchange, he forces one of the guards into shooting his gun. Two mistakes: there is no flash or muzzle flare, and the gun has an insane amount of recoil. It's not a cannon, it's a 9mm. It's also not the guard being startled by Bane: Bane is the one holding his arm.
Continuity mistake: After Batman and Selina escape Bane's men on the roof-top, Batman flies with Selina in "the bat" and drops her off before returning to the batcave. When he arrives in the cave, he emerges from "the bat" without his mask on and examines the data he obtained from the stock exchange heist. At this point he should still have on the dark black eye makeup he typically wears under the mask, even without the mask on. We are to believe he returned to the cave directly after leaving Selina, and it would not make sense that in flying back home he removed his face paint.
Continuity mistake: When Hines Ward scores the opening touchdown as the field collapses, he ends by the letters "ues" (end part of Rogues). We see the field collapse up to the lettering, including part of the "u." When the mercenaries storm the stadium, there's a wide shot of the end zone and more of the field is present by those letters. Plus, when Ward is in the end zone, the grass is green between the letters, but in wide shots, the grass in the end zones is painted yellow with black letters.
