** One of the biggest dividing points is the film's ending [[spoiler:in which Bruce Wayne finally retires from being Batman, passes the torch to John Blake and chooses to live happily ever after in Europe - specifically Italy - with Selina "Catwoman" Kyle, Earth 2 style. Cue fans claiming "The Real Batman Would Never Do That!", "The Real Batman Could Never Do That!", "The Real Bruce Wayne Can Never Stop Being Batman!" and so on and so forth, to the point that some even say "The Real Batman Would Die Before He Stopped Being Batman!" and keep insisting that a better ending would be Bruce being dead for real, even though that completely defeats the whole point of the film, that Bruce had to find the will to live and move on with his life. Having him learn that just to die anyway would be counterproductive to say the least.]] Others dislike the ending because they were hoping for an open ended ''and the adventure continues...'' type ending wherein future filmmakers and casts could pick up where Nolan and co left off and continue to expand and build upon his work, possibly even using his saga as the launch pad for a cinematic DC Universe, something Warner Bros. had tried to do with 2011's ''Green Lantern'' and now seemed to determined to start with 2013's ''Man of Steel'' (featuring the long awaited reboot for Superman).

* CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer: Some right-wing conspiracy theorists were convinced that Bane was named after Bill Bain, cofounder (with Mitt Romney) of Bain Capital. What they forgot to research was that the creators of Bane are Republicans.

* Bane's storming of Blackgate might be uncomfortable to watch when you take into account that in 2015, Al Qaeda operatives stormed a prison in Yemen amid the overthrow of that country's government and ensuing chaos to break out Al Qaeda members that were imprisoned there.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop:
** "[[MiseryBuildsCharacter Suffering builds character]]."
*** Bruce is basically forged by tragedy into the hero Gotham needs come the end of the film. Though interestingly the film does not shy away from the fact that misery and pain can create very dangerous villains. Especially in the case of Bane [[spoiler: and Talia.]]
** If a new invention can be abused, it likely will be.
*** Bruce mothballs the new fusion reactor in a knee-jerk reaction to a ''single paper'' on weaponizing it, only for the reactor to be used exactly for that purpose. In short, rather than circulate the technology for clean energy and change the entire world for the better, Bruce sits on it because he's paranoid about the danger to Gotham (and by extension the rest of the world).
** Having a corrupt system where the rich and powerful rule (along with a paid-off police force) is preferable to allowing the poor to rebel, since that will only lead to criminal rule.
