*** Uh, no. The "bomb" was not created as such, it was a reactor meant to serve as an energy source and there were failsafes to prevent it from detonating. Not to mention that the government was aware of Bane kidnapping Dr. Pavel so they likely knew Bane was responsible for the bomb. At most there will be an investigation to see if anyone else in the company was a mole for the League of Shadows rather than a blanket condemnation of the company.

** A broken neck isn't necessarily immediately-fatal. If the break is low enough, the nerves that work the diaphragm can keep a person breathing, which would account for the victim's ability to utter a few half-choked moans, or even try to speak if the larynx isn't damaged.

*** IMDB says the exterior shots of the pit was in India. Bruce spent some time in India in BatmanGothamKnight.

* Selina Kyle wears [[CombatStilettos high heels]] that seem to be made of steel or aluminum. Now ignoring the likely balance problems with wearing impractical footwear when scaling a building what kind of sound do you think that would make when walking across your average floor? Does a cat burglar really want [[HighlyVisibleNinja shiny bits of metal]] making loud clicking sounds when trying to steal a diamond or something? Though she also wears goggles [[SplinterCell with shiny lights on the front]] so maybe I shouldn't expect much. At least I wouldn't if Nolan hadn't prided himself on the supposed plausibility of the Batsuit before this point.

** Forget about the armor. There is no way Batman should have lost that fight -- in Dark Knight, he has the [[PowerFist pneumatic mangler]], which enables him to bend gun barrels and tear sheet metal. In TDKR, he has powered leg braces that let him kick through brick walls. Bane may feel no pain, but unless he has [[Film/{{Terminator}} hyper-alloy endoskeleton]], Batman should have crushed and snapped many of his bones. (Unlike [[TheDarkKnightReturns the work that the movie mostly draws inspiration from]], where Batman must prove himself stronger in front of the Mutant gang, Batman has no reason to fight fair here, especially once Bane broke into the armory.)

******* The problem here is that you're able to make these decisions, logical as they may be, in the comfort of your home in front of a computer screen. Batman had to make them on the fly with a mild concussion from being punched in the head repeatedly while ''still'' getting the shit kicked out of him by a man almost twice his size who doesn't exactly give him much room to breath. That and you're forgetting that, like in [[TheDarkKnightReturns one of the film's primary inspirations]], Batman didn't do any of that specifically ''because'' he's trying to fight like he's still a young man, trying to match Bane's ferocity. It's only when it's clear he's losing that he tries his usual tricks, but the few that he has the time to pull out simply don't work on him.

*** To quote [[TheDarkKnightReturns one of this work's primary inspirations]]: ''The impact is tremendous. Even bone is turned to powder. Not much of a corpse left. Mostly liquid. Problem is...there might not be any fingerprints. Even dental records would probably be useless.''

**Very yes. For example, Both Fatman and Little Boy detonated several hundred feets over their targets, and the bombs certainly did leave such clouds.

**FridgeBrilliance explained that yes, theoretically, even after Bruce takes out Bane's Tumblers, the cops should still be reduced to swiss-cheese by the hundreds of assault weapon equipped henchmen. However, we're talking about Bane here, and if there's one single code of honor he would be likely to follow, it might just be a reluctance to supply gangbangers and hitmen with fully loaded automatic weapons, especially considering their unproven loyalty to him. Add in the fact that the U.S. Army outside the city is still probably strong enough to cut off any arms supplies and shipments to Bane's army, and you suddenly realize why there's only one single soldier in the front ranks actually firing on the cops; he's the only one with ammunition. In fact the only rifles you see being fired in the battle are the Heckler & Koch G36C guns used by Bane's Elite Mooks. And guess who are the only members of Bane's army to actually maintain a disciplined fire from behind cover? Also, it seems that many of the cops were forced to give up their weapons in exchange for food (we don't see any SWAT members keeping their rifles, and only about half of them have their pistols that we see later in the fight).
