Throughout the movie, the Gotham City Police Department uniform and cars show GPD and GCPD inconsistently. It is not uncommon for police forces to change vehicle liveries and/or styles of their uniforms every once in a while. New vehicles would be added to their fleet and given the new livery - to change every other older vehicle in the fleet to the same new livery would not be cost-effective. See more »
I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone... inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.

I had no real expectations for this movie but never thought it would be that bad. The tone is sort of alright, but the pacing is terrible, not to mention it just didn't had to be that long. Acting is mediocre at best and the action scenes are unimaginative. Compared to the other two movies its just crap.
I believe when it comes to superhero movies in Hollywood they are just generally getting the whole picture wrong. And its especially tricky in the case of Batman since he is also a unique animal" among all the DC and Marvel superheroes since he doesn't have any kind of superpower.
You know there is a difference being Batman and a guy wearing a bat costume. There must be a reason why a character dresses like idiot". In the comics and cartoons Batman is intimidating and turns out to be an extremely clever guy, always planning ahead and bringing interesting moral questions into the equasion while Bruce Wayne is like any other generic person. Here Christian Bale is a guy wearing a bat costume and this time there is no Heath Ledger to save the movie. Don't get me wrong its not just the actor's fault, creating a perfect Batman requires the cooperation of the director, the writers etc...
Apart from that there are many problems with the movie bu I don't feel the need to list them on a wall of text.
