Question: I was wondering if I had missed something. Near the end of the film the Joker has rigged the two boats w/explosives, and has said if one of them doesn't destroy the other by midnight, they will both blow up. So, why, at midnight, do they not both blow up? I don't remember seeing the scene where that detonator was found and dismantled. I suppose it could all have been a ruse, and the Joker was certain one of the boats would blow up the other, so he had no need to carry through with his real threat, but then again, earlier in the film, he had talked about how his consistency would be a thing gotham could count on. If he said, for example, he was going to blow up a hospital, then it would happen and people would derive some sort of comfort from that. So what happened with the two boats? And I know the Joker is crazy and might not always act rationally, but this does seem to fly in the face of the character. In fact, it would seem more likely that he would hope neither would destroy the other just so both would explode and there would be more carnage. Can anyone help out?
Question: The original Hostel film had 3 different prices (can't remember them exactly but it was one price for local, slightly more expensive for Asian and very expensive for American). However this film sends pictures to clients' phones and starts an auction. Anyone know why this one is different when it's supposed to be the same operation?
Question: Could someone please explain the sequence of drilling out the bullet from the wall, shooting the different blocks, and being able to identify the fingerprints on the shattered bullet? Also, where did the fingerprint come from? What was the point of shooting the different blocks in the new Batcave?
Question: The questions page for this movie says that the Green Goblin's voice, in the first movie, was another personality in Norman Osborn's mind. When Harry sees Norman's apparition in the mirror, is it really Norman, or is it coming from Harry's mind?
Question: The minor character of Mr. Reese sounds very similar to the word mysteries, could he be a future Riddler?
Question: Anyone want to explain the opening sequence? The guy was able to rocket himself through the window with apparently superhuman speed and reappear behind the shooter within a few seconds despite crashing several stories below. No superhuman abilities, other than absurdly good marksmanship and fast reflexes are stated during the film.
