Embedded with darkness and peril, this is the final instalment in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. This fiery superhero thriller begins 8 years after the events of The Dark Knight find Gotham at a time of peace. This is due to Batman taking the fall for Harvey Dent's murder. However, a new evil force named Bane has arrived in Gotham and aims to take over the city and expose the truth behind who Harvey Dent really was. Now that Wayne Manor has been completely rebuilt - Bruce Wayne has become almost reclusive, rarely leaving the estate. And with Bane taking over the city by force, it forces Batman to come out of retirement. But his allies are few and far apart. An elusive jewel thief by the name of Selina Kyle could be the key to stopping Bane - but whose side is she on? Will the dark knight rise once more to protect the citizens of Gotham? What is the price he must pay for his sacrifice?

Revealing Mistakes
On the City of Gotham police report as seen by Bruce Wayne in the bat cave, the subheading lists Motor Vehicle Report: Los Angeles

Revealing Mistakes
When Batman saves Blake from the ambush by Christopher Judge's character, he fights the henchmen. The guy to the very left never even encounters him yet is flown backwards and falls down as if he was attacked by Batman.

Revealing Mistakes
Many instances of Bane's henchman attacking one at a time and not reacting at all when being ambushed.

Revealing Mistakes
During the stadium scene in Gotham City, at one point a logo reading "UPMC" (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) is clearly visible next to Bane's head.

Revealing Mistakes
In the final fight sequence, when Bane sees Batman and starts his speech, two people fighting behind him clearly aren't connecting with the punches.

Revealing Mistakes
One of Bane's mercenaries (on the far left of the rooftop fight scene with Catwoman and Batman right after it shows Daggett) falls down without being hit.

Factual Mistake
When Bruce Wayne was checking his computer in the bat cave for the first time, one of the articles about Selina Kyle spelled the word "Heist" wrong. It said "Hiest" instead.

Factual Mistake
Poly isobutylene is referred to as an explosive in the film but it is not explosive. Butyl rubber is used to make C4 more pliable and less prone to detonation.

Factual Mistake
In the football stadium when Bane grabs the microphone off the Official, it is the back judge who would not have a microphone - only the head referee would have a microphone. Further, it's not a regular microphone, it's a headset used for communications between coaches, and between the booth official(s) and field officials. Those systems aren't connected to the PA system, though it can be done if a need comes up. Obviously Bane wasn't coordinating with the PA control booth, he just picks up the headset and talks in to the mic part as if it were hooked in already.

Errors in Geography
When the Gotham police force takes on Bane's recruited prisoners, a banner clearly marking "NYC" is visible in the background.

Errors in Geography
During the Stock market battle, the camera pans back and shows a banner hanging with NYC on it.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Miranda leaves the bank, two men are reflected on the door on the right.

Crew/Equipment Visible
Chalk markings "S/T" could be seen in a shot of the police-thug battle in Wall Street. They were believed to be the markings for the police actors to know where to standby before film rolled.

Crew/Equipment Visible
Following the scene where Bane's sniper goes into the sewer and Commissioner Gordon gives chase, there is an explosion. The blast comes up through the manhole and the cop (on the left) clearly has flame retardant jelly covering his face.

Crew/Equipment Visible
Camera reflected in glass doors outside stock exchange during the fight between cops and Bane's henchmen.

Continuity
During the chase after the trade heist, Bane separates from his henchman and passes Batman on his left side; Batman turns to see him to his right side.

Continuity
As Batman begins to approach Bane just before their final confrontation, the same extra (a middle-aged gray-beard in a brown vest) can be seen fighting behind Batman only to be seen fighting behind Bane a split second later.

Continuity
When Bruce shoots the arrow at the target and startles Selena, it clearly hits right on the number 7 on the target. A moment later from Bruce's perspective, the arrow is in the target a full 6 inches to the right of the number 7.

Continuity
When Bane's team blow the tail off the CIA plane there is a solid sheet of hardboard across the opening - from inside the plane it is completely open to the sky.

Continuity
As Bruce Wayne is meeting with Fox at his desk, his hand alternates between the top and the staff of his cane.

Continuity
After Bane and his men attack the stock exchange, vehicle crash barriers are deployed on the streets. The one we see deploying has its open side towards the stock exchange. But when Bane and his men leave on their motorcycles, the open sides of the angled crash barriers are pointed away from the exchange allowing Bane to use them as ramps.

Continuity
In the Batcave Bruce is looking for his thief Selina Kyle. In the first mugshot she is little over 66 inches (about 5'7") according to the height chart. In her second mugshot she is shown to be almost 72 inches (almost 6 feet tall).

Continuity
When Selina fights Stryver in the bar after giving him the fingerprints, he appears to be knocked out but when the SWAT team bursts in, he is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity
In the opening plane sequence, the main CIA operative fires a gun right by one of the prisoners' head out the plane door. His gun does not recoil from the shot, but a gun shot is heard. Later, we see him recock the hammer, an action that would have been unnecessary if the gun had actually been fired.

Continuity
During the final street chase, the characters pass by the same Jos. A. Bank clothing store no less than three times.

Continuity
As Blake runs into the hospital, he is seen to have a long shotgun with a wooden stock and a silver barrel. However, when he inside, he is seen to have a short black shotgun.

Continuity
In the stock market scene, Bane's henchman that has the tablet that is downloading information is seen putting it in his bag. In the next shot he can be seen doing this again even though the tablet was already put in the bag.

Continuity
The stock market exchange scene takes place during daylight. They established less than 10 minutes were needed to complete the exchange fiasco. Yet, when it's completed, its already night time.

Character Error
When Commissioner Gordon is going into the sewer, he tells Foley to call the DPW, standing for Department of Public Works. After the explosion, while the cops are standing around, Foley yells "Where's that DWP guy" mixing up the initials of the abbreviation.

Character Error
When Bruce Wayne checks his computer in the bat cave and looks at the files he has on Seline Kyle, there is an Incident Report by the Gotham Police Department. On the top, it says "Klye, Selina", instead of "Kyle, Selina".

Character Error
When Bruce Wayne is at the ball with Selina Kyle, he corrects her pronunciation of Ibiza to "Eye-beeth-a". Although it's pronounced that way by many English speakers, strictly it's pronounced "Ee-beeth-a".

Audio/Video Mismatch
When on the plane the CIA Op, attempting to get information out of Bane's men, fires a handgun near the head of one of the men; however, the slide on the automatic does not move despite the sound of the gun firing, nor is a spent shell seen ejecting from the gun.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Bruce gets up to leave from his meeting with Fox in Fox's office, Bruce says 'No' before his lips move.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When they take over the stock exchange, the bad guys enter the place shooting. It is noticeable that their machine guns are not shooting and yet we hear the noise and we see the ricochet of the bullets against the monitors in the ceiling.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Blake tries to appeal to the officers guarding the bridge, he tells the kids to go back and wait on the bus. When he says "Just go back and wait," his lips are not moving.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When the prisoners in the pit shout 'rise', their lips don't move synchronised to the shout.
Trivia:
Writer, producer, and director Christopher Nolan had considered using a mixture of CGI and deleted scenes from The Dark Knight (2008) to have The Joker appear briefly. He ultimately decided it was disrespectful to Heath Ledger.

Standing at 5'9", Tom Hardy had to wear three-inch lifts to make himself appear taller to portray Bane.

According to Christopher Nolan, this movie's theme deals with "consequences". For Batman Begins (2005), it was "fear", while The Dark Knight (2008) dealt with "chaos".

Christopher Nolan reportedly told the cast the ending of the movie verbally to avoid any leaks.

Anne Hathaway had desperately coveted the role of Catwoman, and was a complete nervous wreck after her audition. The first time her agent phoned after her screentest, he said he had good news and asked if Hathaway was sitting down. Hathaway immediately screamed "I'm Catwoman!" and ran around the room in a frenzy. Unfortunately, her agent had to calm Hathaway down. He had called to let her know that she'd been invited to host the Academy Awards. Hathaway has said she was so shocked she went numb at the offer. Fortunately, shortly thereafter, her agent phoned again to let her know that she had been offered the part of Catwoman as well.
