Let me start off by saying that I loved The Dark Knight Rises. It was brilliantly paced and written with extraordinary insight into the themes and symbols of the Batman mythos. It also gave viewers a profound portrayal of what Gotham and its residents are made of. All that being said, there were mistakes in the film that need to be addressed.
Certainly, nitpicking over mistakes does detract from the fun of watching the Batman franchise as it defeats the entire reason we suspend our disbelief for a man who dresses up as a bat to fight crime in the first place. However, there’s no denying that there were noticeable flaws in Nolan’s latest work. They’re not the sort of problematic situations that would bother you upon initial viewing, but rather the stuff you would search up online, joke about among friends and ultimately shrug off by saying “Because he’s Batman”.
It’s with that mindset that I hope readers consider the following, and please note that there are spoilers for those who haven’t seen the film.
